The results of the positive selection analyses indicated that Tas2r10 and Tas2r67 had positively selected sites and other intact genes in raccoon dogs were under purifying selection.
To explore the evolutionary forces on the Tas2r genes, we conducted an analysis of site models by using the Tas2r2, Tas2r5, Tas2r7, Tas2r10, Tas2r12, Tas2r38, Tas2r39, Tas2r40, Tas2r41, Tas2r42 and Tas2r67 sequences as input data.
The two common positively selected sites (codon 7and 9) in Tas2r10 were located on the transmembrane region (Fig.
