(A) Bayesian Phylogeny of Myostatin proteins (MSTN-1a/1b and MSTN-2a/2b). The topology was generated using all available myostatin proteins from all for myostatin groups MSTN-1a/1b, and MSTN-2a/2b. The phylogeny was constructed using MrBayes 3.2 [47] with posterior probabilities indicated on the internal nodes of the tree. The tree was rooted with R. retropinna as the outgroup. (B) Maximum Likelihood Phylogeny of Myostatin proteins (MSTN-1a/1b and MSTN-2a/2b). The topology was generated using all available myostatin proteins from all for myostatin groups MSTN-1a/1b, and MSTN-2a/2b. The phylogeny was constructed using Phyml 3.0 [45,46] with 1,000 bootstraps indicated on the internal nodes of the tree. The tree was rooted with R. retropinna as the outgroup. (C) Bayesian Phylogeny of Myostatin genes (mstn1a/1b and mstn2a/2b). The topology was generated using all available myostatin genes from all for myostatin groups mstn1a/1b, and mstn2a/2b. The phylogeny was constructed using MrBayes 3.2 [47] with posterior probabilities indicated on the internal nodes of the tree. The tree was rooted with R. retropinna as the outgroup.
