Hi, I have question about the evolutionary time line of cell units.  I
know that evolutionarty time lines of whole organisms have been
commpleted.  However, has any one ever completed a time line of a cell
subunit that has gone through some drastic changes from one organism to
the next organism.  The subunit I have in mind is the G-trimeric subunit
proteins ( ie ras).

Any information would be helpful, as I am thinking of doing this for a
senior research project to complete my B.S. in molecular biology.  I am
already fully aware that I would have to use anova statistical methods to
compare this set of proteins to a non-changing subunit such as
mitochondrial proteins/structures to get an accurate esitmation of when
the change in g-trimeeric proteins occurred and etc.
