Evidence for multiple reversals of asymmetric mutational constraints during the evolution of the mitochondrial genome of metazoa, and consequences for phylogenetic inferences.
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences are comonly used for inferring phylogenetic relationships. However, the strand-specific bias in the nucleotide composition of the mtDNA, which is thought toExpand

A P-insertion screen identifying novel X-linked essential genes in Drosophila
The recent determination and annotation of the entire euchromatic sequence of the Drosophila melanogaster genome predicted the existence of about 13600 different genes (Science 287 (2000) 2185;Expand

Phylogenetic relationships of conifers inferred from partial 28S rRNA gene sequences.
The conifers, which traditionally comprise seven families, are the largest and most diverse group of living gymnosperms. Efforts to systematize this diversity without a cladistic phylogeneticExpand

Phylogenetic Analysis of Invertebrate Lysozymes and the Evolution of Lysozyme Function
Abstract. We isolated and sequenced the cDNAs coding for lysozymes of six bivalve species. Alignment and phylogenetic analysis showed that, together with recently described bivalve lysozymes, theExpand

MADS-box genes in Ginkgo biloba and the evolution of the AGAMOUS family.
MADS-box proteins are a large family of transcription factors. In plants, many genes belonging to this family are involved in the homeosis of the floral system. Up to now, they have mainly beenExpand

Homology of arthropod anterior appendages revealed by Hox gene expression in a sea spider
Arthropod head segments offer a paradigm for understanding the diversification of form during evolution, as a variety of morphologically diverse appendages have arisen from them. There has beenExpand

The Drosophila Corto protein interacts with Polycomb-group proteins and the GAGA factor.
In Drosophila, PcG complexes provide heritable transcriptional silencing of target genes. Among them, the ESC/E(Z) complex is thought to play a role in the initiation of silencing whereas otherExpand

Cirripede phylogeny using a novel approach: molecular morphometrics.
We present a new method using nucleic acid secondary structure to assess phylogenetic relationships among species. In this method, which we term "molecular morphometrics," the measurable structuralExpand

Expression of a homologue of the fushi tarazu (ftz) gene in a cirripede crustacean
SUMMARY In Metazoa, Hox genes control the identity of the body parts along the anteroposterior axis. In addition to this homeotic function, these genes are characterized by two conserved features:Expand

I review how both the parasegmental and segmental frames are used in constructing the body plan of the arthropods. The parasegment is the primary genetic unit, as shown by Hox gene expression, andExpand
