Fig. 4

Maximum likelihood tree (GTR + GAMMA model) using the complete dataset of 56 mammalian AMBN sequences. The platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) was used as outgroup. Bootstrap percentages are indicated. Nodes with more than 90 % bootstrap support are indicated with dots and nodes with no value received less than 70 % bootstrap support. Placentals are colored by main clades: Xenarthra (red), Afrotheria (green), Laurasiatheria (orange), Scandentia (pink), Glires (purple) and Primates (blue). Species possessing various copies of exon 7 are indicated in bold (see also Additional file 2). The three enamel-less species are underlined. Branch lengths are expressed as substitutions per site
