Molecular phylogeny of symbiotic dinoflagellates inferred from partial chloroplast large subunit (23S)-rDNA sequences.
Symbiotic associations between invertebrates and dinoflagellates of the genus Symbiodinium are a common occurrence in marine environments. However, despite our extensive knowledge concerning theExpand

Phylogenetics and evolution of the Daphnia longispina group (Crustacea) based on 12S rDNA sequence and allozyme variation.
Although members of the crustacean genus Daphnia have been the target of much research, there is little understanding of the group's evolutionary history. We addressed this gap by inferring aExpand

The origin and evolution of variable-region helices in V4 and V7 of the small-subunit ribosomal RNA of branchiopod crustaceans.
We sequenced the V4 and V7 regions of the small-subunit ribosomal RNA (SSU rRNA) from 38 species of branchiopod crustaceans (e.g., Artemia, Daphnia, Triops) representing all eight extant orders. Expand

Inducible Expression, Enzymatic Activity, and Origin of Higher Plant Homologues of Bacterial RelA/SpoT Stress Proteins in Nicotiana tabacum*
All living cells possess adaptive responses to environmental stress that are essential to ensuring cell survival. For motile organisms, this can culminate in avoidance or attractile behavior, but forExpand

Transcontinental Phylogeography of the Daphnia pulex Species Complex
Daphnia pulex is quickly becoming an attractive model species in the field of ecological genomics due to the recent release of its complete genome sequence, a wide variety of new genomic resources,Expand

Phylogenetic analyses among octocorals (Cnidaria): mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequences (lsu-rRNA, 16S and ssu-rRNA, 18S) support two convergent clades of branching gorgonians.
Gorgonian octocorals lack corroborated hypotheses of phylogeny. This study reconstructs genealogical relationships among some octocoral species based on published DNA sequences from the largeExpand

Mature habitats associated with genetic divergence despite strong dispersal ability in an arthropod
BackgroundPopulations may be bound by contemporary gene flow, selective sweeps, and extinction-recolonization processes. Indeed, existing molecular estimates indicate that species with low levels ofExpand

The process of mRNA–tRNA translocation
In the elongation cycle of translation, translocation is the process that advances the mRNA–tRNA moiety on the ribosome, to allow the next codon to move into the decoding center. New results obtainedExpand

Cryo-EM structure of the mammalian eukaryotic release factor eRF1–eRF3-associated termination complex
Eukaryotic translation termination results from the complex functional interplay between two eukaryotic release factors, eRF1 and eRF3, and the ribosome, in which GTP hydrolysis by eRF3 couples codonExpand
