Secondary structure models of the nuclear internal transcribed spacer regions and 5.8S rRNA in Calciodinelloideae (Peridiniaceae) and other dinoflagellates.
TLDR
The structure models developed in this study may be generally useful for future phylogenetic analyses and help in understanding molecular evolution and increases the number of structural characters.
WOLOSZYNSKIA HALOPHILA (BIECHELER) COMB. NOV.: A BLOOM‐FORMING COLD‐WATER DINOFLAGELLATE CO‐OCCURRING WITH SCRIPPSIELLA HANGOEI (DINOPHYCEAE) IN THE BALTIC SEA 1
TLDR
The spiny resting cysts of W. halophila are identical to the cysts formed during the massive encystment events previously attributed to S. hangoei in the Baltic Sea, suggesting that W. Halophila is a significant contributor to the dinoflagellate spring blooms in theBaltic Sea.
Phylogeny of calcareous dinoflagellates as inferred from ITS and ribosomal sequence data.
TLDR
Molecular results do not contradict general evolutionary scenarios provided by previous morphological (mainly paleontological) investigations and are considered as apomorphic within alveolates, and non-calcareous taxa nesting with calcareous dinoflagellates may have reduced calcification secondarily.
Secondary Structure of the ITS1 Transcript and its Application in a Reconstruction of the Phylogeny of Boraginales
TLDR
A general secondary structure of ITS1 for Boraginales, with four major helices, is proposed here and it is demonstrated that in each subtaxon, derivations from this structure are found.
Congruence of a phylogeny of Cordiaceae (Boraginales) inferred from ITS1 sequence data with morphology, ecology, and biogeography.
TLDR
A set of ancestral characters (including apomorphies and plesiomorphies) is reconstructed for Cordiaceae based on lie phylogenetic hypotheses as inferred from the congruence between morphological and ITSI data.
Human Papillomaviruses and Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer: Basic Virology and Clinical Manifestations
TLDR
Specific EV/cutaneous HPV types as co-factors in association with UV-radiation and the immune system seem to be involved in the early pathogenesis of cutaneous SCC.
Multiple evolutionary mechanisms drive papillomavirus diversification.
TLDR
The molecular data globally supports a complex evolutionary scenario for PVes, which is driven by multiple mechanisms but not exclusively by coevolution with corresponding hosts, and host-linked evolution appears plausible at shallow, rather than deeper, taxonomic levels.
Amphidoma languida sp. nov. (Dinophyceae) reveals a close relationship between Amphidoma and Azadinium.
TLDR
In a molecular phylogeny, the Amphidomataceae including Amphidoma and Azadinium were an independent lineage among other monophyletic major groups of the dinophytes such as the Suessiales, Prorocentrales, Gonyaulacales, and Peridiniales.
Establishing an Agenda for Calcareous Dinoflagellate Research (Thoracosphaeraceae, Dinophyceae) including a nomenclatural synopsis of generic names
TLDR
Calcareous dinoflagellates are considered to be a monophyletic group of peridinoid taxa that have the potential to produce calcified exoskeletal structures during the life cycle, or that derive fro the fossil record through “cell reprograming”.
A molecular phylogeny of Scrippsiella sensu lato (Calciodinellaceae, Dinophyta) with interpretations on morphology and distribution
TLDR
To attach importance to the cyst diversity present in calcareous dinoflagellates, a segregation of Scrippsiella sensu lato into four well-recognizable and monophyletic groups is proposed, corresponding to more- or less-established taxonomic units.
