 en Molecular cloning of Tupaia belangeri chinensis check for this species in other resources neuropeptide Y and homology comparison with other analogues from primates
DONG Li; LÜ Long-Bao & LAI Ren


Much attention has been payed to tree shrews for their close phylogenetic relationship with primates, small size, and short reproductive cycle. Especially, they are considered as excellent experiential animals for medicine or/and disease research. A nucleotide sequence encoding neuropeptide Y(NPY) precursor has been cloned from the cDNA library of Tupaia belangeri chinensis check for this species in other resources . Sequence alignment revealed that the sequence homology with primate NPY was up to 96.9%. The phylogenetic analysis based on NPY precursor sequence revealed that the tree shrew has a close relationship with primates.
