Figure 2: Convergent evolution of BMR and NMR CLOCK proteins.

From: Genome-wide adaptive complexes to underground stresses in blind mole rats Spalax

Figure 2

(a) The Q-rich domain of BMR (Spalax) and NMR (Heterocephalus) CLOCK proteins compared with that of human (Homo), rat (Rattus) and Mouse (Mus). Red box indicated the expanded glutamine-rich area in BMR and NMR. (b) Phylogenetic tree of the CLOCK protein. The rooted tree describes the similarity relationships among the CLOCK proteins of BMR, NMR, mouse, rat, Ord's Kangaroo Rat (Dipodomys), thirteen-lined ground Squirrel (Spermophilus tridecemlineatus), Daurian ground squirrel (S. dauricus) and human (Homo).
