    Complementary DNAs (cDNAs) encoding T-cell receptor delta ( TRD) chains from the northern brown bandicoot, Isoodon macrourus, were identified while sequencing expressed sequence tags (ESTs) from a thymus cDNA library. Surprisingly, the I. macrourus TRD sequences were not orthologous to...

    Background: X chromosome inactivation is the transcriptional silencing of one X chromosome in the somatic cells of female mammals. In eutherian mammals (e.g. humans) one of the two X chromosomes is randomly chosen for silencing, with about 15% (usually in younger evolutionary strata of the X...

    Comparative evolutionary analyses of gene families among divergent lineages can provide information on the order and timing of major gene duplication events and evolution of gene function. Here we investigate the evolutionary history of the α-globin gene family in mammals by isolating and...

    Genes of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) have been characterized in all extant lineages of mammals. The tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) is well established as a model marsupial species; however, no classical MHC sequences have been described from this species. We have isolated two...

    Background: In marsupials, growth and development of the young occur postnatally, regulated by milk that changes in composition throughout the long lactation. To initiate lactation in mammals, there is an absolute requirement for insulin (INS), a gene known to be imprinted in the placenta. We...

    Background: The koala, Phascolarctos cinereus, is a biologically unique and evolutionarily distinct Australian arboreal marsupial. The goal of this study was to sequence the transcriptome from several tissues of two geographically separate koalas, and to create the first comprehensive catalog of...

    Among mammals, only eutherians and marsupials are viviparous and have genomic imprinting that leads to parent-of-origin-specific differential gene expression. We used comparative analysis to investigate the origin of genomic imprinting in mammals. PEG10 (paternally expressed 10) is a...
