The phylogenetic relationship between the Chlamydomonadales and Chlorococcales inferred from 18SrDNA sequence data
The 185rDNA trees clearly demonstrate the non‐monophyly of the Chlamydomonadales and Chlorococcales, suggesting that vegetative morphology does not reflect phylogenetic relationships in the CW group.
Vestigial chloroplasts in heterotrophic stramenopiles Pteridomonas danica and Ciliophrys infusionum (Dictyochophyceae).
The results indicated that the loss of photosynthetic ability occurred independently in P. danica and C. infusionum, the first report of the presence of a vestigial chloroplast (leucoplast) in colorless dictyochophytes.
The Pinguiophyceae classis nova, a new class of photosynthetic stramenopiles whose members produce large amounts of omega‐3 fatty acids
The Pinguiophyceae class. nov., a new class of photo‐synthetic stramenopiles (chromophytes), is described. The class includes five monotypic genera, Glossomastix, Phaeomonas, Pinguiochrysis (type
Ultrastructure of the biflagellate gametes of Collinsiella cava (Ulvophyceae, Chlorophyta)
The ultrastructure of Collinsiella gametes is very similar to that of Mono‐stroma and other members of the Ulotrichales, Ulvophyceae, and it is concluded that the genusCollinsiella should be treated as a member of the Monostromat‐aceae.
Thraustochytrid Aurantiochytrium sp. 18W-13a Accummulates High Amounts of Squalene
The squalene contents and production at 4 d of culture were 198 mg/g and 1.29±0.13 g/L, respectively, exceptionally high values compared to previous reports.
