Unresolved orthology and peculiar coding sequence properties of lamprey genes: the KCNA gene family as test case
BackgroundIn understanding the evolutionary process of vertebrates, cyclostomes (hagfishes and lamprey) occupy crucial positions. Resolving molecular phylogenetic relationships of cyclostome genesExpand

Insights into the red algae and eukaryotic evolution from the genome of Porphyra umbilicalis (Bangiophyceae, Rhodophyta)
Significance Fossil evidence shows that red algae (Rhodophyta) are one of the most ancient multicellular lineages. Their ecological, evolutionary, and commercial importance notwithstanding, few redExpand

Horizontal Transfers of Tc1 Elements between Teleost Fishes and Their Vertebrate Parasites, Lampreys
Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) has been recognized to be an important mechanism that shaped the evolution and genomes of prokaryotes and unicellular eukaryotes. However, HGT is regarded to beExpand

Evolutionary history and functional characterization of the amphibian xenosensor CAR.
The xenosensing constitutive androstane receptor (CAR) is widely considered to have arisen in early mammals via duplication of the pregnane X receptor (PXR). We report that CAR emerged together withExpand

Lineage-Specific Duplications of MuroideaFaim and Spag6 Genes and Atypical Accelerated Evolution of the Parental Spag6 Gene
Gene duplications restricted to single lineage combined with an asymmetric evolution of the resulting genes may play particularly important roles in this lineage’s biology. We searched and identifiedExpand

Physical and cDNA Mapping in the DBH Region of Human Chromosome 9q34
Chromosome 9q34 has been extensively studied and mapped due to the presence of known disease genes, principally tuberous sclerosis 1 (TSC1), in this region. During the course of our mapping of thisExpand

Mapping of 5' ends of virion-derived HBV DNA.
Mapping of the 5' ends of virion-derived hepatitis B virus DNA molecules was carried out after cloning and sequencing linearized genomes made fully double stranded. Of five clones obtained, three ofExpand
