A genetic evaluation of the leafnose snake, Phyllorhynchus arenicolus


, : A genetic evaluation of the leafnose snake, Phyllorhynchus arenicolus. Journal of Herpetology, 143: 263-268

A population of leafnose snakes from Isla Monserrate, Gulf of California, Mexico was recently described as P. arenicolus Savage and Cliff. The nomenclatorial status of this population was questioned without supportive evidence. This population was electrophoretically compared with populations of P. decurtatus on the peninsula of Baja California and with a population on a landbridge island, Isla San Marcos. The genetic comparisons based on the gene products of 29 presumptive loci do not support recognition of the Isla Monserrate population as a valid species. The insular population is referred to as P. decurtatus arenicolus.

Structural analysis of Gs(alpha) shows that it is composed of two domains: the ras-like domain (RD) that is conserved in all members of the GTPase superfamily and is homologous to the monomeric G-proteins (e.g., p21(ras)) and an alpha-helical doma...
