Herein, we report the results of a comparative genomic analyses of the [beta]-globin gene in 11 different taxa; nine eutherian [Homo sapiens (human), Macaca mulatta (rhesus monkey), Pan troglodytes (chimpanzee), Rattus norvegicus (mouse), Mus musculus (rat), Canis familiaris (dog), Bos taurus (cow), Equus caballus (horse), Oryctolagus cuniculus (rabbit)], one dinosaurian (avian) Gallus gallus (chicken) and a neopterygii (marine) Danio rerio (fish), describing fundamental similarities and differences among taxa to enable better evolutionary understanding of functional [beta]-globin gene (Fig.
The present study reveals several interesting evolutionary observations on the HBB gene among the eutherian, dinosaurian and neopterygii taxa.
