Evolution of the SEC1 gene in New World monkey lineages (Primates, Platyrrhini)

B. N. Borges, Paiva, T. S., and Harada, M. L., Evolution of the SEC1 gene in New World monkey lineages (Primates, Platyrrhini), vol. 7, pp. 663-678, 2008.

The structure and evolution of the SEC1 gene were examined for the first time in New World primates of the genera Alouatta, Aotus, Ateles, Brachyteles, Callicebus, Callithrix, Cebus, Chiropotes, Lagothrix, Leontopithecus, Pithecia, Saguinus, and Saimiri. This gene has a high CG content (63.8%) and an estimated heterogeneous size ranging from 795 (Callithrix) to 1041 bp (Pithecia), due to numerous indel events.
