MSTN-2a, -2b amino acid phylogeny. This phylogeny was created using an amino acid alignment of MSTN-2a and 2b. Introns were excised from the amino acid sequences by the programs GENSCAN and GeneMark-E. The alignments were then made using MAFFT, and the phylogeny was constructed through PhyML 3.0 [45,46], with a 1000 bootstrap anlaysis.
