Abstract The evolution of the expression and the structure of the gene for transthyretin, a thyroxine-binding plasma protein formerly called prealbumin, was studied in three marsupial species: the South American polyprotodont Monodelphis domestica, the Australian polyprotodont Sminthopsis macroura and the Australian diprotodont Petaurus breviceps. The transthyretin gene was found to be expressed in the choroid plexus of all three species. In liver it was expressed in P. breviceps and in M. domestica, but not in S. macroura. This, together with previous studies [Richardson, S. J., Bradley, A. J., Duan, W., Wettenhall, R. E. H., Harms, P. J., Babon, J. J., Southwell, B. R., Nicol, S., Donnellan, S. C. & Schreiber, G. (1994) Am. J. Physiol. 266, R1359-R1370], suggests the independent evolution of transthyretin synthesis in the liver of the American Polyprotodonta and the Australian Diprotodonta.
