Jackson, AP, Thomas, GH, Parkhill, J and Thomson, NR (2009) Evolutionary diversification of an ancient gene family (rhs) through C-terminal displacement. BMC Genomics 10:584
Rhs genes are prominent features of bacterial genomes that have previously been implicated in genomic rearrangements in E. coli. By comparing rhs repertoires across the Enterobacteriaceae, this study provides a robust explanation of rhs diversification and evolution, and a mechanistic model of how rhs diversity is gained and lost.
