Dynamics of mitochondrial DNA evolution in animals: amplification and sequencing with conserved primers.
With a standard set of primers directed toward conserved regions, we have used the polymerase chain reaction to amplify homologous segments of mtDNA from more than 100 animal species, includingExpand

Evolution of the cytochrome b gene of mammals.
With the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and versatile primers that amplify the whole cytochrome b gene (approximately 1140 bp), we obtained 17 complete gene sequences representing three orders ofExpand

Rapid evolution of animal mitochondrial DNA.
Mitochondrial DNA was purified from four species of higher primates (Guinea baboon, rhesus macaque, guenon, and human) and digested with 11 restriction endonucleases. A cleavage map was constructedExpand

African populations and the evolution of human mitochondrial DNA.
The proposal that all mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) types in contemporary humans stem from a common ancestor present in an African population some 200,000 years ago has attracted much attention. To studyExpand

Mitochondrial DNA sequences in single hairs from a southern African population.
Hypervariable parts of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) were amplified enzymatically and sequenced directly by using genomic DNA from single plucked human hairs. This method has been applied to study mtDNAExpand

Branching pattern in the evolutionary tree for human mitochondrial DNA.
Eighty-eight types of mitochondrial (mt) DNA were found by sequencing the most variable part of the control region from 117 Caucasians. In the tree relating those types, most of the branching eventsExpand

Immunological Time Scale for Hominid Evolution
Several workers have observed that there is an extremely close immunological resemblance between the serum albumins of apes and man. Our studies with the quantitative micro-complement fixation methodExpand

Stomach lysozymes of ruminants. I. Distribution and catalytic properties.
A major regulatory shift affecting the expression of lysozyme c may have been involved in the origin of two groups of mammals whose nutrition depends on foregut bacteria. A survey of 23 mammalianExpand

Mitochondrial resolution of a deep branch in the genealogical tree for perching birds
Animal mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is known to contain information about the genealogical relations among closely related species and is shown here to yield information about distant relations as well.Expand

Association of C-Terminal Ubiquitin Hydrolase BRCA1-Associated Protein 1 with Cell Cycle Regulator Host Cell Factor 1
ABSTRACT Protein ubiquitination provides an efficient and reversible mechanism to regulate cell cycle progression and checkpoint control. Numerous regulatory proteins direct the addition of ubiquitinExpand
