Researchers Identify Sipa 1 Gene, Responsible For Cancer Metastasis
...ntitative trait genetic mapping showed the presence of a putative metastasis efficiency locus on mouse chromosome 19. This chromosome region, which is orthologous
to human 11q12-13, harbors a known metastasis suppressor gene Brms1. However, this gene has no obvious polymorphisms that influence metastasis.

Computational verification of protein-protein interactions by orthologous co-expression
In the March 3 issue of Nature, Johns Hopkins researchers report that two proteins best known for very different activities actually come together to turn the liver into a sugar-producing factory when food is scarce. Because the liver's production of sugar is a damaging problem in people with diabe...

...lass of small RNAs produced by RDR2.
Independently of the UD groups, Chandler and her team at the University of Arizona had identified from corn an orthologous
gene--a gene that has the same function in different organisms. In corn, this gene, which the Chandler lab found, is called the mediator of paramutati...

Further evidence for common descent comes from genetic detritus such as pseudogenes , regions of DNA which are orthologous
to a gene in a related organism, but are no longer active and appear to be undergoing a steady process of degeneration  .
