dc.description.abstractMany studies have investigated physiological roles of the membrane associated progesterone receptor (MAPR), but little is known of its evolution. Marked variations in response to exogenous progesterone have been reported for four brachionid rotifer species, suggesting differences in progesterone signaling and reception. Here we report sequence variation for the MAPR gene in the Brachionus plicatilis species complex. Phylogenetic analysis of this receptor is compared with relatedness based on cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 sequences. Nonsynonymous to synonymous site substitution rate ratios, amino acid divergence, and variations in predicted phosphorylation sites are examined to assess evolution of the MAPR among brachionid clades.en_US
