  • Lists of paralogs for D. melanogaster

  • However, it was argued that, as natural selection does not 'know' which duplicated gene should be under selection and which is free of selective constraint, both paralogs experience a period of relaxed selection and accelerated evolution.

  • This was done by ensuring that putative orthologous proteins did not show a greater similarity to any paralogs or proteins from more distant species than they did to the proteins included in the analyzed COGs.

  • Under this model, if environmental conditions, and therefore the number of gene copies, fluctuate frequently, then most paralogs will be closely related, such that an excess of (nearly) identical genes will be found within a genome, as indeed has been observed for many genomes ([ 21] and data not shown).

  • Paralogs are defined as two genes that diverged by a duplication event [ 18 ] . Other concepts derived from gene trees can be useful for functional prediction.
