Hypermutability of Genes in <i>Homo sapiens</i> Due to the Hosting of Long Mono-SSR

Etienne Loire, Françoise Praz, Dominique Higuet, Pierre Netter and Guillaume Achaz.

in Molecular Biology and Evolution

January 2009; p ublished online October 2008 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Evolutionary Biology; Molecular and Cell Biology. 7658 words.

Simple sequence repeats (SSRs) are very common short repeats in eukaryotic genomes. “Long” SSRs are considered “hypermutable” sequences because they exhibit a high rate of expansion and...

June 2003; p ublished online June 2003 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Evolutionary Biology; Molecular and Cell Biology. 3503 words.

Oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes (hereafter referred to as “cancer genes”) result in cancer when they experience substitutions that prevent or distort their normal function. We examined...

Odor preference in house mice: influences of habitat heterogeneity and chromosomal incompatibility

Ana Claudia Nunes, Maria da Luz Mathias and Guila Ganem.

in Behavioral Ecology

January 2009; p ublished online September 2009 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Evolutionary Biology; Ecology and Conservation; Zoology and Animal Sciences. 7790 words.
