The evolution of angiosperm actin genes.

Mario. Moniz De Sa
Forty-four actin genes from five angiosperm species, whose evolutionary relationships are well characterized, were PCR-cloned and sequenced. Phylogenetic analysis of 34 of these actin genes, along with those previously published, indicate that plant actin genes are monophyletic and underwent a rapid radiation early in land plant evolution. Six sets of putative orthologues have been identified and their sequences were used to calculate rates of evolution. The synonomous rate of substitution $(5.44\times10\sp{-9}$/site/year) is similar to that...
