Relatively little is known about the evolutionary histories of most classes of non-protein coding RNAs. Here we consider Y RNAs, a relatively rarely studied group of related pol-III transcripts. A single cluster of functional genes is preserved throughout tetrapod evolution, which however exhibits clade-specific tandem duplications, gene-losses, and rearrangements.
