Phylogenomic analysis of UDP glycosyltransferase1 multigene family
in Linum usitatissimum identified genes with varied expression patterns.
Three new members of the serine-aspartate repeat protein multigene family
of Staphylococcus aureus.
Vitamin D-binding protein, that is a member of a multigene family
including alpha-fetoprotein and albumin, reversibly binds and transports vitamin D and its metabolites to target cells.
The Reg and Reg-related genes were isolated and revealed to constitute a multigene family
, the Reg family, which consists of four subtypes (types I, II, III, and IV) based on the primary structures of the encoded proteins of the genes [4, 5, 9, 10].
The largest multigene family
recognized so far is the Plasmodium interspersed repeats (pir) which includes repetitive interspersed family (rif) in P.
The cellular retinol-binding proteins (CRBPs) are members of the intracellular lipid-binding protein (iLBP) multigene family
. CRBPs are small molecular mass (~15 kDa) proteins that bind specifically to retinol and retinoic acid (Sundelin et al., 1985).
DBP is a plasma a2-globulin with a molecular weight of 52-59 kDa and is recognized as a member of a multigene family
that includes albumin, [alpha]-fetoprotein, and [alpha]-albumin/afamin.
ERF transcription factors, a huge multigene family
of transcription factors regulating the expression of ethylene dependent genes, are the most prominent components directing the specific and diversified plant responses to the ethylene signal.
S100B belongs to a multigene family
of calcium binding proteins and is expressed abundantly in the brain .
With the gene presence in almost all bacteria, often existing as a multigene family
, or operons, the function of the 16S rRNA gene over time has not changed, suggesting that random sequence changes are a more accurate measure of time and the 16S rRNA gene (1500 bp) is large enough for informatics purposes .
SSX: a multigene family
with several members transcribed in normal tests and with human cancer.
A new multigene family
of putative pheromone neurons.
