Very interesting article indeed.

"This suggests higher eukaryotes, including mammals and humans, will either have an ATL or have lost or replaced it with a protein of analogous function." If ATLs are found in humans, These statements make the article publishing premature. Confirmation of the existence of said Eukaryote's in humans should be confirmed before speculation of benefits of this discovery. until then it's interesting only to people working in the same field of research.
