Figure 2: TEL2 is conserved in different species, but is absent from rodents. This tree depicts the species that have a TEL2 homologue. Rodents are not found on this tree, but if the gene were present in rodents it would be shown as a branch of the Murinae taxon. The Murinae taxon branches off of the Rodentia taxon, which stems from the Euarchontoglires taxon. The Euarchontoglires taxon is connected to the Eutheria taxon node, which is depicted here by the red box. All of the above taxons are part of the Mammalia taxon shown here by the orange box.
