Understanding relationships between gene complements and physiology is important, especially where major species-dependent differences are apparent. Molecular and functional differences between rodents (rats, mice, guinea pigs) and humans are increasingly reported. Recently, the motilin gene, which encodes a gastrointestinal hormone widely detected in… CONTINUE READING
