Phylogenetic Relationships among Short Wavelength-sensitive Opsins of American Chameleon (Anolis carolinensis) and Other Vertebrates

Abstract

The vertebrate opsins have been classified into four major phylogenetic groups. One of them, a short wavelength-sensitive (SWS) opsin group, is further divided into two subgroups, SWS-I and SWS-II, having the wavelengths of maximal absorption of about 420 and 450 nm, respectively. Here we report the DNA sequences of the SWS-I and SWS-II genes from the… (More)
