Taxon-GO Checks and Commentary - Part 10
New checks suggested by AgBase
GO:0007595 "lactation" only_in NCBITaxon:40674 "Mammalia" :: Ensembl ENSGALP00000029396 ENSGALP00000029396 GO:0007595 GO_REF:0000002 IEA InterPro:IPR003626 P protein NCBITaxon:9
031 20091214 UniProtKB
This IEA from Chicken is erroneously associates a protein with "lactation", which is restricted to mammals.
Other examples that should only be applied to mammals are:
GO:0001701 in utero embryonic development only_in Theria "taxon:32525"
GO:0007595 lactation only_in Mammalia "taxon:40674"
GO:0001890 placenta development only_in Theria "taxon:32525"
GO:0030879 mammary gland development only_in Mammalia "taxon:40674"
GO:0001967 suckling behaviour only_in Mammalia "taxon:40674"
GO:0001824 blastocyst development only_in Theria "taxon:32525"
NOTE: this classification needs checking; I am not sure if it is correct for marsupials.
GO:0007565 female pregnancy only_in Mammalia "taxon:40674"
GO:0042633 hair cycle only_in Mammalia "taxon:40674"
GO:0042473 outer ear morphogenesis
NOTE: chicken do not possess an outer ear, or pinna, as most mammals possess, but they do have ear lobes. Not sure whether this is included in the GO:0042473 definition
Exclude Aves "taxon:8782"
Include Tyrannosauridae "taxon:436493" (eg. Tyrannosaurus rex - big scary teeth)
GO:0042297 vocal learning only_in Passeriformes "taxon:9126"
(Need to exclude all other Aves)
DONE: I have added all appropriate checks down to here.
Errors detected and fixed
The checks above produced 136 IEA errors which have been reported back for fixing.
