Adaptive evolution of digestive RNASE1 genes in leaf-eating monkeys revisited: new insights from 10 additional Colobines
Pancreatic RNase genes implicated in the adaptation of the colobine monkeys to leaf-eating have long intrigued evolutionary biologists since the identification of a duplicated RNASE1 gene with enhanced digestive efficiencies in Pygathrix nemaeus. The recent emergence of two contrasting hypotheses, i.e., independent duplication and one duplication event hypotheses, make it into focus again. Curr... more

  Most researchers agree that... more
New clues to explain mechanism of HIV infection in pig-tailed macaques
Recent studies made by a group of CAS scientists may shed light on a new approach for demystifying the complicated pathogenesis of the AIDS, i.e., the formative mechanism of HIV infection at the molecular level. The pioneering work provides new clues for stemming the genetic pathway needed for propagation of the killer epidemic. The research result has been published by two monographic journals... more
