Major latex protein family: high tandem, low segmental duplications The phylogeny on the left shows segmental and tandem duplications in the A. thaliana major latex protein family. The phylogeny on the right shows the same A. thaliana sequences with M. truncatula and tomato EST sequences added to provide an indication of degree of conservation of these sequences and lineages. Clades are generally represented in comparable relationships, with some differences due to instabilities of some deep nodes. Bootstrap values are indicated as follows: *** >90%; ** >=80%; * >=70%. Note the expansion of several clades in each species following separation of these taxa.
