Mitochondrial DNA phylogeny and sequential colonization of Canary Islands by darkling beetles of the genus Pimelia (Tenebrionidae)
Fifteen species of the darkling beetle genus Pimelia (Tenebrionidae: Coleoptera) have been sequenced for a 365 b. p. portion of the mitochondrial Cytochrome Oxidase I gene. Thirteen of these areExpand

The evolutionary history of the genus Timarcha (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae) inferred from mitochondrial COII gene and partial 16S rDNA sequences.
The apterous genus Timarcha consists of three subgenera and more than 100 species in its Palearctic distribution, with specialized feeding on few plant families. Fifty-four sequences sampled from 31Expand

Localization of tandemly repeated DNA sequences in beetle chromosomes by fluorescentin situ hybridization
In situ hybridization to chromosomes and nuclei ofTenebrio molitor shows the massive presence of a species-specific satellite DNA in all chromosomes and six sites of rDNA in mitotic chromosomes.Expand

The complete mitochondrial genome of the subterranean crustacean Metacrangonyx longipes (Amphipoda): A unique gene order and extremely short control region
Metazoan mitochondrial genomes usually consist of the same gene set, but some taxonomic groups show a considerable variety in gene order and nucleotide composition. The mitochondrial genomes of 37Expand

Evolution and diversification of the forest and hypogean ground-beetle genus Trechus in the Canary Islands.
The beetle genus Trechus (Carabidae) is represented in the Macaronesian Islands by 43 endemic species. The Canary Islands have 16 endemic species, with two adapted to hypogean life. PhylogeneticExpand

Mitogenomic Phylogenetic Analysis Supports Continental-Scale Vicariance in Subterranean Thalassoid Crustaceans
Many continental subterranean water crustaceans ("stygobionts") display extreme disjunct distributions, where different species in the same genus are isolated on continents or islands separated byExpand

The phylogeography of the darkling beetle, Hegeter politus, in the eastern Canary Islands
We investigated the phylogeography of Hegeter politus, a saprophagous, flightless darkling beetle endemic to the eastern Canary Islands, using a fragment of the mitochondrial COI gene. Distance andExpand

Genetic structure, phylogeography and demography of two ground‐beetle species endemic to the Tenerife laurel forest (Canary Islands)
The volcanic island of Tenerife (Canary archipelago) was formerly covered at 600–1200 m above sea level on most of its northern side by a cloud forest holding much of the endemic insect fauna. In theExpand

Stable expression of 1Dx5 and 1Dy10 high-molecular-weight glutenin subunit genes in transgenic rye drastically increases the polymeric glutelin fraction in rye flour
We generated and characterized transgenic rye synthesizing substantial amounts of high-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (HMW-GS) from wheat. The unique bread-making characteristic of wheat flour isExpand

Sequence, secondary structure and phylogenetic analyses of the ribosomal internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) in the Timarcha leaf beetles (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
Internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) sequences of the nuclear rDNA in forty‐seven specimens (thirty‐four species) of the leaf beetle genus Timarcha have been studied. Timarcha ITS2 (523 bp onExpand
