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.
Several Tas2r intact genes in raccoon dog were pseudogenized in other species, for example, the Tas2r67 and Tas2r2 were not existed in human, but intact in raccoon dogs and other canid species; the Tas2r39, Tas2r40 and Tas2r41 was pseudogenized in ferret, but was intact in canid species.
