IMAGE: Representatives of the 66 species whose transcriptomes/genomes were used to study the evolution of the Insulin- Insulin-like signaling / Target of Rapamycin (IIS/TOR) molecular network across amniotes (mammals and reptiles/birds). This molecular network regulates lifespan, reproduction, metabolic diseases, cancer, and aging. Among amniotes, the hormones, receptors and binding proteins of IIS/TOR were found to be quickly evolving.
