In addition to cementing the dino-bird connection, the new study provides the first molecular evidence that mastodons and elephants are also closely related. rex proteins were extracted from soft tissues preserved inside 68-million-year-old fossil remains first described in 2005.
"This shows that if we can sequence even tiny pieces of fossil protein, we can establish evolutionary relationships," said co-author John Asara of Harvard Medical School, who also led the previous T. Chris Organ of Harvard University is the lead author of the new report, which appears in tomorrow's issue of the journal Science. The mastodon remains were much younger, dating to between 160,000 and 600,000 years ago.
