Associations of Muridae with chemical compounds

  • Because the repeat pattern differs in closely related murine taxa, involucrin reveals with greater sensitivity than random nucleotide substitutions the evolutionary relations of the mouse and probably of all murids [15].
  • Temporal organization of the 24-h corticosterone rhythm in the diurnal murid rodent Arvicanthis ansorgei Thomas 1910 [16].
  • Ultrastructural immunohistochemical localization of vasopressin in the hypothalamic-neurohypophysial system of three murids [17].
  • Phylogenetic analysis, including additional murid taxa, showed that the DRB exon 2 sequences did not separate according to species, consistent with trans-species evolution of the MHC in these taxa [18].
  • The results suggest that microsomal enzyme activity in the conversion of 7alpha-hydroxycholesterol to 7-ketocholesterol varies considerably, even within the subfamily Cricetinae and the family Muridae [19].

Gene context of Muridae

  • Using both simulations and analysis of real data from murids (APRT and LCAT nuclear genes), we show that comparing large numbers of species significantly improves the power of the test [20].
  • These results suggest that the expression of the albumin and AFP genes may be subjected to different regulatory events in these two members of the Muridae family [21].
  • We explored the phylogenetic potential of indels in four nuclear protein-coding genes (SCA1, PRNP, TNFalpha, and HspB3) with regard to a possible rooting at the murid branch [22].
  • All murid LCAT sequences are much poorer in GC than all nonrodent LCAT sequences, and the hamster sequence database shows exactly the same isochore pattern as rat and mouse [23].
  • The muridae glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase family [24].
