WHOLE-GENOME DUPLICATION AND YEAST'S FRUITFUL WAY OF LIFE

TRENDS GENET ():

© 2018 Elsevier Ltd Studies on the fate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae paralogous gene pairs that arose through a whole-genome duplication event have shown diversification of retained duplicated genes. Paralogous functional specialization often results in improved function and/or novel function that could contribute to the adaptation of the organism to a new lifestyle. Here, we analyze and discuss particular case studies of paralogous functional diversification that could have played a role in the acquisition of yeast fermentative metabolism.
