Population Genetic Structure of Mediterranean Fruit Fly (Diptera: Tephritidae) and Implications for Worldwide Colonization Patterns
Variation in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was assessed for >100 populations of Mediterranean fruit flies Ceratitis capitata (Weidemann), collected from the New and Old World using 3 restriction enzymes,… Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the subfamily Tephritinae (Diptera: Tephritidae) based on mitochondrial 16S rDNA sequences.
The phylogeny of the subfamily Tephritinae (Diptera: Tephritidae) was reconstructed from mitochondrial 16S ribosomal RNA gene sequences using 53 species representing 11 currently recognized tribes of… Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the superfamily Tephritoidea (Insecta: Diptera): new evidence from the mitochondrial 12S, 16S, and COII genes.
The phylogeny of the superfamily Tephritoidea (Diptera: Muscomorpha) was reconstructed from three mitochondrial gene fragments (12S, 16S, and COII) using 49 species representing 19 tephritoid and… Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the family Tephritidae (Insecta: Diptera): New insight from combined analysis of the mitochondrial 12S, 16S, and COII genes
The phylogeny of the family Tephritidae (Diptera: Tephritidae) was reconstructed from mitochondrial 12S, 16S, and COII gene fragments using 87 species, including 79 tephritid and 8 outgroup species.… Expand
Functional conservation and divergence of five SEPALLATA-like genes from a basal eudicot tree, Platanus acerifolia
Main conclusionFiveSEP-like genes were cloned and identified fromPlatanus acerifoliathrough the analysis of expression profiles, protein–protein interaction patterns, and transgenic phenotypes, which… Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the superfamily Tephritoidea (Insecta: Diptera) reanalysed based on expanded taxon sampling and sequence data
Molecular systematics of the tephritoidea (Insecta: Diptera): Phylogenetic signal in 16S and 28S rDNAs for inferring relationships among families
Phylogenetic signal present in the mitochondrial 16S ribosomal RNA gene (16S rDNA) and the nuclear large subunit ribosomal RNA gene (28S rDNA) was explored to assess their utility in resolving family… Expand
Clarification of previously confused Chrysotoxum sapporense and Chrysotoxum graciosum (Insecta: Diptera: Syrphidae) in East Asia based on morphological and molecular data
As a result of the ongoing systematic study of the genus Chrysotoxum in Korea, we found that C. sapporense and C. shirakii were originally described based on specimens of opposite ends of… Expand
Phylogeny of the Genera Anastrepha and Toxotrypana (Trypetinae: Toxotrypanini) Based upon 16S rRNA Mitochondrial DNA Sequences
Phylogenetic study of selected tephritid flies (Insecta: Diptera: Tephritidae) using partial sequences of the nuclear 18S ribosomal DNA
Abstract We analyzed sequence data from 107 base pairs within the nuclear 18S ribosomal RNA gene from 26 tephritid species and four out-group taxa. A total of 45 sites were variable within the… Expand
