We describe two homeobox sequences, TgHbox5 and TgHbox6, isolated from the Hawaiian sea urchin Tripneustes gratilla using a Drosophila Sex combs reduced probe. Sequence analysis shows that the encoded TgHbox5 homeodomain shares only 30-52% amino acid identity with homeodomains encoded by previously characterized genes, establishing that it is a divergent(More)
We report the complete nucleotide sequence of the transposable element Uhu from the vicinity of the alcohol dehydrogenase (Adh) gene of Drosophila heteroneura (an endemic Hawaiian Drosophila). The complete element is about 1650 base-pairs (bp) long, has 46-50 base-pair inverse imperfect repeats at it's ends, and contains a large open reading frame(More)
Cloning and sequencing of Tripneustes gratilla genomic DNA and cDNA encoding a developmentally regulated, embryonic messenger RNA, referred to as Tg616, revealed an actin-encoding gene orthologous to the CyI actin gene described from Strongylocentrotus purpuratus. Tg616 and SpCyI share: (1) 150 nucleotides of highly conserved sequence 5' of the(More)
The complete mitochondrial genome of the Chinese lake gudgeon Sarcocheilichthys sinensis was first determined in this study. It is a circular DNA double strand of 16,684 bp in length, encodes genes for 13 proteins, 2 ribosomal RNA subunits, 22 transfer RNAs and an A + T-rich control region with the typical gene order in vertebrate mitogenomes.
