Resurrected Ancestors Reveal Origins of Metamorphism in XCL1.


In a recent study, Dishman et al. resurrected ancestors of the metamorphic chemokine, XCL1, inferred through phylogenetics, and found that metamorphism arose in the XCL1 lineage ~150 million years ago. A zigzagging evolutionary path suggests that the metamorphic properties are adaptive and reveals three design principles that could be used for technological applications.
