Revisions to the Classification, Nomenclature, and Diversity of Eukaryotes
TLDR
It is confirmed that eukaryotes form at least two domains, the loss of monophyly in the Excavata, robust support for the Haptista and Cryptista, and suggested primer sets for DNA sequences from environmental samples that are effective for each clade are provided. Expand
PLASTID DYNAMICS DURING SURVIVAL OF DINOPHYSIS CAUDATA WITHOUT ITS CILIATE PREY 1
TLDR
The results indicate that D. caudata is an intriguing protist that would represent an interesting evolutionary adaptation with regard to photosynthesis as well as help us to better understand plastid evolution in eukaryotes. Expand
Ultrastructure and molecular phylogeny of two heterolobosean amoebae, Euplaesiobystra hypersalinica gen. et sp. nov. and Tulamoeba peronaphora gen. et sp. nov., isolated from an extremely hypersaline
TLDR
There is more evidence that there is a substantial ecological and phylogenetic diversity of heterotrophic eukaryotes capable of growing in very high salinity environments, and these ecosystems may be more complex than usually assumed. Expand
Characterization of Pharyngomonas kirbyi (= "Macropharyngomonas halophila" nomen nudum), a very deep-branching, obligately halophilic heterolobosean flagellate.
TLDR
Interestingly, Pharyngomonas has some potentially ancestral features not found in typical Heterolobosea, including elongated left roots associated with multilayered 'C' fibres, orthogonal basal bodies, and a spur structure that might represent a 'B' fibre homolog. Expand
Effects of thermal effluents from a power station on bacteria and heterotrophic nanoflagellates in coastal waters
TLDR
It is suggested that a microbial ecological approach is useful in estimating influences of thermal pollution on microbes in aquatic environments and inhibitory potential of chlorination by-products in the discharged water on coastal microbes is indicated. Expand
Growth responses of the marine photosynthetic ciliate Myrionecta rubra to different cryptomonad strains
TLDR
It is demonstrated that M. rubra strain MR-MAL01 has preferences with regard to potential cryptomonad prey strains, suggesting that the growth of MR-mal01 may be partially affected by the availability of preferred cryptomonAD prey types. Expand
Genetic Differences and Variations in Slipper Lobster (Ibacus ciliatus) and Deep Sea Lobster (Puerulus sewelli) Determined by RAPD Analysis
TLDR
The longest genetic distance displaying significant molecular differences was determined to exist between the Korean and the Indian Ocean lobster species (genetic distance = 0.612). Expand
Ultrastructure and phylogenetic placement within Heterolobosea of the previously unclassified, extremely halophilic heterotrophic flagellate Pleurostomum flabellatum (Ruinen 1938).
TLDR
Being morphologically distinct from its closest relatives and phylogenetically distant from other flagellate-only Heterolobosea, P. flabellatum cannot be moved into any previously described heterolobOSEan genus. Expand
Light Microscopic Observations, Ultrastructure, and Molecular Phylogeny of Hicanonectes teleskopos n. g., n. sp., a Deep‐Branching Relative of Diplomonads
TLDR
Hicanonectes teleskopos has a ventral groove and two unequal flagella, and rapidly rotates during swimming, and forms a clade with the deep‐branching fornicate Carpediemonas, with moderate‐to‐strong bootstrap support, although their SSU rRNA gene sequences are quite dissimilar. Expand
Genetic Diversity of Parasitic Dinoflagellates in the Genus Amoebophrya and Its Relationship to Parasite Biology and Biogeography
TLDR
The results imply that genetic diversity in Amoebophrya strains does not always reflect parasite biology or biogeography, and host specificity varied from moderately to extremely species‐specific within groups, including Group II. Expand
