The complete mitochondrial genome of Parafronurus youi (Insecta: Ephemeroptera) and phylogenetic position of the Ephemeroptera.
The first complete mitochondrial genome of a mayfly, Parafronurus youi (Arthropoda: Insecta: Pterygota: Ephemeroptera: Heptageniidae), was sequenced using a long PCR-based approach. The genome is aExpand
Molecular systematics of the Asian mitten crabs, genus Eriocheir (Crustacea: Brachyura).
To help resolve phylogenetic relationships among the mitten crabs, complete sequences of the nuclear DNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and portions of the mitochondrial genome corresponding toExpand
The Mitochondrial Sequences of Heptathela hangzhouensis and Ornithoctonus huwena Reveal Unique Gene Arrangements and Atypical tRNAs
We have sequenced the complete mitochondrial genomes of the spiders Heptathela hangzhouensis and Ornithoctonus huwena. Both genomes encode 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, and 2 ribosomal RNAExpand
Myriapod Monophyly and Relationships Among Myriapod Classes Based on Nearly Complete 28S and 18S rDNA Sequences
Abstract Myriapods play a pivotal position in the arthropod phylogenetic tree. The monophyly of Myriapoda and its internal relationships have been difficult to resolve. This study combined nearlyExpand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Symphylella sp. (Myriapoda: Symphyla): Extensive gene order rearrangement and evidence in favor of Progoneata.
We determined the complete 14,667bp mitochondrial DNA sequence of Symphylella sp., the first representative of the Scolopendrellidae (Arthropoda: Myriapoda: Symphyla). With respect to the ancestralExpand
Incongruous nuclear and mitochondrial phylogeographic patterns in two sympatric lineages of the wolf spider Pardosa astrigera (Araneae: Lycosidae) from China.
We investigated the genetic structure of mitochondrial DNA (COI and 16S rRNA-tRNA(Leu(CUN))-ND1) and nuclear DNA (ITS2) variations among and within populations of Pardosa astrigera in China. TwoExpand
Phylogenetic placement of the spider genus Nephila (Araneae: Araneoidea) inferred from rRNA and MaSp1 gene sequences.
The family status of the genus Nephila, which belongs to Tetragnathidae currently but Araneidae formerly, was reexamined based on molecular phylogenetic analyses. In the present study, 12S and 18SExpand

HSP90 is a highly conserved molecular chaperone important in the maturation of a broad spectrum of proteins. Using expressed sequence tag (EST) and rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) techniques,Expand
Mitochondrial genome of the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir japonica sinenesis (Brachyura: Thoracotremata: Grapsoidea) reveals a novel gene order and two target regions of gene rearrangements.
We determined the complete 16,354 bp mitochondrial DNA sequence of the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir japonica sinesnesis. It consists of 13 protein coding genes (PCGs), 2 rRNAs, and 22 tRNAs, typicalExpand
[Cloning and prokaryotic expression of major ampullate spidroin gene of spider].
RT-PCR was conducted with one degenerate primer designed according to repetitive regions' amino acid sequence of major ampullate spidroin (MaSp) in spiders and adaptor primer in the SMART cDNAExpand
