Arthropod fossil data increase congruence of morphological and molecular phylogenies.
Enhanced congruence is shown between molecular and morphological phylogenies based on 753 morphological characters for 309 fossil and Recent panarthropods, which resolve hexapods within Crustacea, with remipedes as their closest extant relatives, and show that the traditionally close relationship between myriapods and hexapod is an artefact of convergent character acquisition during terrestrialisation.
The SOS response: recent insights into umuDC-dependent mutagenesis and DNA damage tolerance.
The SOS response of E. coli is discussed and the roles of the umuD(+)C(+)-dependent, translesion DNA synthesis (TLS) process that is responsible for SOS mutagenesis are concentrated on.

Tomographic data can be visualized in several ways, the most effective of which is the production of isosurface-based ‘virtual fossils’ that can be manipulated and dissected interactively.

A Silurian armoured aplacophoran and implications for molluscan phylogeny
Phylogenetic analysis indicates that the Kulindroplax perissokomos gen. et sp.

The abilities of parkin to bind to and stabilize microtubules were not affected by PD-linked mutations that abrogate its E3 ligase activity, and the tubulin/microtubule-binding activity of park in and its E2 ligase action are independent.

A cladistic analysis resolved a new arthropod from the Tulip Beds locality of the Burgess Shale Formation as the basal-most member of a paraphyletic grade of nekto-benthic forms with bivalved carapaces and suggests that arthrodization (sclerotization and jointing of the exoskeleton) evolved to facilitate swimming.

The results imply that crown-group molluscan synapomorphies include serial repetition, the presence of a foot, a mineralized scleritome and a creeping rather than worm-like mode of life.
Escherichia coli DnaA Protein THE N-TERMINAL DOMAIN AND LOADING OF DnaB HELICASE AT THE E. COLI CHROMOSOMAL ORIGIN*
It is shown that DnaA protein actively mediates the entry of DnaB at oriC and a similar mechanism may load the eukaryotic replicative helicase.
The Escherichia coli SOS mutagenesis proteins UmuD and UmuD' interact physically with the replicative DNA polymerase.

Direct evidence is provided that both uncleaved UmuD and UmUD' interact physically with the catalytic, proofreading, and processivity subunits of the E. coli replicative polymerase.
