Abstract (auf Englisch):

The mouse and rat genomes have independent expansions of their Androgen-binding protein (Abp) gene families, an extensive one in mouse and a more modest one in rat. Previous work that defined the Abp gene contents of these genomes postulated that the mouse expansion began in an ancestor of the genus Mus. We interrogated six wild-derived mouse genomes and identified eleven Abp genes in Mus pahari (Mp), 33 in M. caroli (Mc), 35 in M. spretus (Ms), 43 in Mus musculus domesticus (Mmd) 38 in M. m. musculus (Mmm) and 46 in M. m. castaneus (Mmc) and present evidence to support that hypothesis.
