Comparison of GO terms for genes under positive selection for the white shark, two teleosts, and six mammals
Biological process Biological process
(white shark) (shared between teleosts and mammals)
Biological regulation Response to stimulus
Regulation of transcription from RNA polymerase II promoter Defense response
Cell communication Response to stress* or wounding**
Chromosome segregation Immune system process, Immune response
Kinetochore assembly Signal transduction
Regulation of transcription DNA-dependent
Ion transport
Molecular function Molecular function
(white shark) (shared between teleosts and mammals)
Protein binding DNA binding, or mismatch DNA binding
RNA polymerase II transcription mediator activity Protein binding**, chemokine receptor binding**, interleukin binding**, interleukin-1 receptor binding*
DNA-directed RNA polymerase activity Metal ion binding

GO terms shared between teleosts and mammals are from Montoya-Burgos [63]. A single asterisk shows terms found in teleosts. Two asterisks shows terms found in mammals.
