Evolution, structure and function of the small heat shock proteins in plants
The a-crystallin-related, small heat shock proteins (smHSPs) are ubiquitous in nature, but are unusually abundant and diverse in higher plants as opposed to other eukaryotes. The smHSPs range in sizeExpand

The genome of Nanoarchaeum equitans: Insights into early archaeal evolution and derived parasitism
The hyperthermophile Nanoarchaeum equitans is an obligate symbiont growing in coculture with the crenarchaeon Ignicoccus. Ribosomal protein and rRNA-based phylogenies place its branching point earlyExpand

Comparative analysis of the small heat shock proteins in three angiosperm genomes identifies new subfamilies and reveals diverse evolutionary patterns
The small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) are a diverse family of molecular chaperones. It is well established that these proteins are crucial components of the plant heat shock response. They also haveExpand

The Arabidopsis ClpB/Hsp100 family of proteins: chaperones for stress and chloroplast development.
The Casein lytic proteinase/heat shock protein 100 (Clp/Hsp100) proteins are chaperones that act to remodel/disassemble protein complexes and/or aggregates using the energy of ATP. In plants, one ofExpand

Comparative genomic analysis of the Hsp70s from five diverse photosynthetic eukaryotes
Abstract We have identified 24 members of the DnaK subfamily of heat shock 70 proteins (Hsp70s) in the complete genomes of 5 diverse photosynthetic eukaryotes. The Hsp70s are a ubiquitous proteinExpand

Evolutionarily Assembled cis-Regulatory Module at a Human Ciliopathy Locus
Distinguishing Ciliopathy Cilia were once thought to be evolutionary remnants, but structural defects reveal their importance in signaling pathways and human disease, such as Joubert syndrome. EitherExpand

Evolutionary Analysis of the Small Heat Shock Proteins in Five Complete Algal Genomes
Small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) are chaperones that are crucial in the heat shock response but also have important nonstress roles within the cell. sHSPs are found in all three domains of lifeExpand

Lowly expressed genes in Arabidopsis thaliana bear the signature of possible pseudogenization by promoter degradation.
Pseudogenes are defined as nonfunctional DNA sequences with homology to functional protein-coding genes, and they typically contain nonfunctional mutations within the presumptive coding region. InExpand
