To address the question of whether deployment and function of lamprey cognates of gnathostome neural crest genes are evolutionarily conserved, we performed moderate-throughput transcriptome analysis, identifying more than 50 genes involved in neural crest formation in lamprey.
Perhaps, as in other systems such as jaws (Shigetani et al., 2002), the vertebrate endocrine system (Campbell et al., 2004), and antibody-mediated immunity (Klein and Nikolaidis, 2005), preexisting pieces were connected into the myelination process by gnathostome ancestors.
Because these two species have independent evolutionary histories covering hundreds of millions of years, mRNAs common to OL processes in both species likely represent proteins recruited to form the original myelin sheaths in the common gnathostome ancestor.
They were evolved from stem lineage of jawed vertebrates (gnathostomes) because of two genome duplication events (Stroz, 2016).
