Abstract

In studies of molecular evolution, the assumption that protein evolution is reversible has often been made, but rarely tested. Here we use a large set of orthologous murid protein coding sequences to perform a simple test of reversibility, and find no evidence to reject the assumption of reversibility in protein evolution.
