This protein has been shown to up-regulate the production of other cytokines as well.TNF-alpha has been identified in all taxonomic groups of teleost fish and is conserved in all vertebrate classes.
Subfunctionalization occurs if the duplicated paralogs divide the functions of the ancestral gene between them, whereas neofunctionalization occurs if any of the duplicated paralogs attains new functions in comparison to the ancestral gene.Until recently, the number of aquaporin genes in the teleost fish species with mapped genomes counted between 13-18 paralogs; the stenohaline zebrafish had 18 paralogs and was thus the vertebrate with the highest numbers of identified aquaporins at that time (Tingaud-Sequeira et al., 2010).
