Evolutionary tree of CCT8L sequences. ML tree of CCT8L sequences from various mammal genomes. The homolog of human CCT8L1 in chimp (Ptr) is characterized as pseudogene and is shown in bold-italics font. Species abbreviations: Bt, Bos taurus (cow); Cf, Canis lupus familiaris (dog); Dn, Dasypus novemcinctus (nine-banded armadillo); Dr, Danio rerio (zebrafish); Ec, Equus caballus (horse); Ga, Gasterosteus aculeatus (stickleback, fish); Gg, Gallus gallus domesticus (chicken); Hs, Homo sapiens (human); La, Loxodonta africana (african bush elephant); Md, Monodelphis domestica (south american gray short-tailed opossum, marsupial); Mm, Mus musculus (mouse); Mmu, Macaca mulatta (rhesus monkey); Mmur, Microcebus murinus (gray mouse lemur); Oa, Ornithorhynchus anatinus (platypus); Ol, Oryzias latipes (the medaka or japanese killifish); Pp, Pongo pygmaeus (northwest bornean orangutan); Ptr, Pan troglodytes (chimpanzee); Rn, Rattus norvegicus (rat); Tn, Tetraodon nigroviridis (spotted green pufferfish); Tr, Takifugu rubripes (japanese pufferfish); Xl, Xenopus laevis (african clawed frog, amphibian); Xt, Xenopus tropicalis (western clawed frog, amphibian). The scale bar represents the indicated number of substitutions per position for a unit branch length.
