Mitogenomic relationships of placental mammals and molecular estimates of their divergences.
Molecular analyses of the relationships of placental mammals have shown a progressive congruence between mitogenomic and nuclear phylogenies. Some inconsistencies have nevertheless persisted, notablyExpand
Reversible inhibition of intercellular junctional communication by glycyrrhetinic acid.
Intercellular gap-junctional communication was measured using metabolic co-operation in co-cultures of argininosuccinate synthetase-deficient and argininosuccinate lyase-deficient human fibroblasts.Expand
The Near Eastern Origin of Cat Domestication
The world's domestic cats carry patterns of sequence variation in their genome that reflect a history of domestication and breed development. A genetic assessment of 979 domestic cats and their wildExpand
Genetic variation and population structure in remnant populations of black rhinoceros, Diceros bicornis, in Africa
Black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) are one of the most endangered mammal species in Africa, with a population decline of more than 96% by the end of the last century. Habitat destruction andExpand
Microsatellite analysis of genetic diversity in fragmented South African buffalo populations
Genetic variation was measured in 105 African buffalo from four populations in South Africa to investigate the effects of habitat fragmentation. Levels of heterozygosity, allelic diversity andExpand
Testing morphologically based phylogenetic theories within the cartilaginous fishes with molecular data, with special reference to the catshark family (Chondrichthyes; Scyliorhinidae) and the
A molecular phylogenetic investigation was conducted to examine phylogenetic relationships between various members of the catsharks (Chondrichthyes; Carcharhiniformes; Scyliorhinidae), and is theExpand
Polyphyly of Arundinoideae (Poaceae): Evidence from rbcL Sequence Data
Sequence data from the plastid encoded gene rbcL are used to determine phylogenetic relationships between various lineages in the grasses, with particular emphasis on the subfamily Arundinoideae.Expand
Abstract The Natal long-fingered bat (Miniopterus natalensis) and lesser long-fingered bat (M. fraterculus) are morphologically almost indistinguishable and occur sympatrically over much of theirExpand
Strong population substructure is correlated with morphology and ecology in a migratory bat
Examining patterns of inter-population genetic diversity can provide valuable information about both historical and current evolutionary processes affecting a species. Population genetic studies ofExpand
Structure and function of the transcriptional control region of nonpassaged BK virus.
We compared the nucleotide sequence in the transcriptional control region of BK virus isolates cloned directly from human urine (BK-WW) with that of prototype BK virus. BK-WW was found to have aExpand
