The morphological bases of gadiform taxonomy, including the subfamily Gadinae to which all of the species in our study belong, have been described (e.g., Schultz and Welander, 1935; Svetovidov, 1948; Cohen, 1989), as have the phylogenetic relationships among gadiform families (e.g., Roa-Varon and Orti, 2009) and within Gadinae (Teletchea et al., 2006).

The largest sequence divergence in terms of amino acid substitutions ranges between 47 and 55 when compared with deep-water macrourids, and similarly to LDH-A, an indel had to be added in the sequences of the gadiform species at position 76 to obtain a complete alignment (Table 7).
