The New Higher Level Classification of Eukaryotes with Emphasis on the Taxonomy of Protists
TLDR
This revision of the classification of unicellular eukaryotes updates that of Levine et al. (1980) for the protozoa and expands it to include other protists, and proposes a scheme that is based on nameless ranked systematics.
Diversity, nomenclature, and taxonomy of protists.
TLDR
Evaluating placental inter-ordinal phylogenies with novel sequences including RAG1, γ -fibrinogen, ND6, and mt-tRNA, plus MCMC-driven nucleotide, amino acid, and codon models, plus a phylogenetic foundation for comparative mammalian genomics is evaluated.
The Santa Barbara Basin is a symbiosis oasis
TLDR
Compared with nearby aerated sites, the Santa Barbara Basin is a ‘symbiosis oasis’ offering a new source of organisms for testing symbiosis hypotheses of eukaryogenesis, most members of which harbour prokaryotic symbionts.
A major quantitative trait locus on chromosome 3 controls colitis severity in IL-10-deficient mice
TLDR
The complex nature of interactions among loci in this mouse model system, coupled with separate deleterious contributions from both parental strains, illustrates why detection of human inflammatory bowel disease linkages has proven to be so difficult.
Revised description of the fine structure of in situ "zooxanthellae" genus Symbiodinium.
TLDR
The formal description of the genus Symbiodinium, which describes the in situ symbionts, contains information that is based on artifact and should be revised.
Character evolution in heterotrophic euglenids
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of a large morphological data set from heterotrophic euglenids found that Dinema sulcatum held a pivotal position in the phylogenetic tree and possessed many characters that bridged bacteriotrophic taxa with eukaryotrophicTaxa.
An ultrastructural comparison of the mitotic apparatus, feeding apparatus, flagellar apparatus and cytoskeleton in euglenoids and kinetoplastids
TLDR
It is hypothesize that a euglenoid with features similar to those now present in P. cantuscygni was ancestral to both the eugenoid and kinetoplastid lines.
MORPHOLOGICAL SEPARATION OF THE EUGLENOID GENERA TRACHELOMONAS AND STROMBOMONAS (EUGLENOPHYTA) BASED ON LORICA DEVELOPMENT AND POSTERIOR STRIP REDUCTION 1
TLDR
Two sets of morphological characters, lorica development and pellicle strip reduction, support the separation of Trachelomonas and Strombomonas as distinct genera.
Mycoplasma pneumoniae Protein P30 Is Required for Cytadherence and Associated with Proper Cell Development
TLDR
Transformation of the P30 mutants with the wild-type p30 allele restored a normal morphology, as determined both visually and by digital image analysis, suggesting that P30 plays a role in mycoplasma cell development.
TRENDS IN THE EVOLUTION OF THE EUGLENID PELLICLE
Abstract Trends in the evolution of the euglenid pellicle were described using phylogenetic methods on 18S rDNA, morphological, and combined data from 25 mostly phototrophic taxa. The tree topology
