Please show me a peer reviewed paper that shows increase function has lead to anything...
Actually show me a peered reviewed paper that shows that functions can increase


There are several that occurred to me;

Under the category of "experimental evolution"

(All the way back to 1976)

Barry G. Hall
1976 "Experimental evolution of a new enzymatic function. Kinetic analysis of the ancestral (ebgo) and evolved (ebg+) enzymes" Journal of Molecular Biology, Volume 107, Issue 1, 15 October 1976, Pages 71-84

(Lenski, et al, of course)

Richard E. Lenski; Michael R. Rose; Suzanne C. Simpson; Scott C. Tadler
1991 Long-Term Experimental Evolution in Escherichia coli. I. Adaptation and Divergence During 2,000 Generations" The American Naturalist, Vol. 138, No. 6. (Dec., 1991), pp. 1315-1341

Estelle Crozat, Nadège Philippe, Richard E. Lenski, Johannes Geiselmann, Dominique Schneider
2005 "Long-Term Experimental Evolution in Escherichia coli. XII. DNA Topology as a Key Target of Selection" Genetics February 1, vol. 169 no. 2 523-532

"experimental evolution" +increased +function gave 4,160 hits to articles.

"Gene resurrection, or "Ancestral Function"

Jamie T. Bridgham, Sean M. Carroll, Joseph W. Thornton
2006 "Evolution of Hormone-Receptor Complexity by Molecular Exploitation" Science 312, 97-101

(a general intro, and review)
Joseph W. Thornton
2004 "RESURRECTING ANCIENT GENES: EXPERIMENTAL ANALYSIS OF EXTINCT MOLECULES" NATURE REVIEWS | GENETICS VOLUME 5: 366-375

SEAN MICHAEL CARROLL
2009 "MECHANISMS OF EVOLUTION BY GENE DUPLICATION: THE ORIGINS OF CORTICOSTEROID SIGNALING" Dissertation, University of Oregon.
