Molecular characterisation of the Arabidopsis SBP-box genes.
The Arabidopsis thaliana SPL gene family represents a group of structurally diverse genes encoding putative transcription factors found apparently only in plants. The distinguishing characteristic ofExpand

Bracteomania, an inflorescence anomaly, is caused by the loss of function of the MADS‐box gene squamosa in Antirrhinum majus.
Anomalous flowering of the Antirrhinum majus mutant squamosa (squa) is characterized by excessive formation of bracts and the production of relatively few and often malformed or incomplete flowers.Expand

The sphinx of immunology, the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), has revealed most of her secrets except the two most profound ones: what is the true MHC function, and what is the origin andExpand

Evolution of the major histocompatibility complex.
The major histocompatibility complex is a group of closely linked loci that code for molecules used by T-lymphocytes as context for the recognition of antigens. The loci fall into two classes: I,Expand

Nucleotide sequences of chimpanzee MHC class I alleles: evidence for trans‐species mode of evolution.
To obtain an insight into the evolutionary origin of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I polymorphism, a cDNA library was prepared from a heterozygous chimpanzee cell line expressingExpand

The phylogenetic relationship of tetrapod, coelacanth, and lungfish revealed by the sequences of forty-four nuclear genes.
The origin of tetrapods is a major outstanding issue in vertebrate phylogeny. Each of the three possible principal hypotheses (coelacanth, lungfish, or neither being the sister group of tetrapods)Expand

Linkage relationships and haplotype polymorphism among cichlid Mhc class II B loci.
The species flocks of cichlid fishes in the Great East African Lakes are paradigms of adaptive radiation and hence, of great interest to evolutionary biologists. Phylogenetic studies of these fishesExpand

Molecular phylogeny of early vertebrates: monophyly of the agnathans as revealed by sequences of 35 genes.
Extant vertebrates are divided into three major groups: hagfishes (Hyperotreti, myxinoids), lampreys (Hyperoartia, petromyzontids), and jawed vertebrates (Gnathostomata). The phylogeneticExpand
