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.
To test this hypothesis, dental microwear was observed in 15 individuals from Gorilla gorilla (n = 3), Pan troglodytes
(n = 2), Theropithecus gelada (n = 1), Papio cynocephalus (n= 2), Papio anubis (n = 2), Papio ursinus (n = 2), Cebus apella (n =2) and Pongo pygmaeus (n = 1) using low-magnification stereomicroscopy with an external and moveable light source.
Ivory Coast, thought to be one of the last strongholds for the species pan troglodytes
verus was believed to be home to between 8,000 and 12,000 chimps.
Indeed, when one NASA-bound chimpanzee boasts "Space is in my veins" and his sidekick quips, "And between your ears," he might as well have been talking about any of the primates in the film: Homo sapiens or Pan troglodytes
A quantitative comparison of terrestrial herbaceous food consumption by Pan paniscus in the Lomako forest, Zaire and Pan troglodytes
in the Kibale forest, Uganda.
Origin of HIV-1 in the chimpanzee Pan troglodytes
The chimps, Pan troglodytes
to be exact, turn out to be much like us.
An increasingly endangered West African chimpanzee subspecies, Pan troglodytes
troglodytes, was recently revealed to harmlessly harbor an AIDS-like virus that could solve the mystery of the disease's origins in humans--and lead to a cure.
