Cryptomonad algae and Chlorarachiniophyta are evolutionary chimaeras derived from the engulfment of an eukaryotic phototrophic endosymbiont by a eukaryotic host cell. Although much reduced, the endosymbiont's eukaryotic plasmatic compartment still contains a nucleus, the so-called nucleomorph. These nucleomorphs carry the smallest known eukaryotic genomes.(More)
The nucleotide sequence of a full-length ribosomal P2 protein cDNA from maize was determined and used for a sequence comparison with the P2 and P1 proteins from other organisms. The integration of these data into a phylogenetic tree shows that the P proteins separated into the subspecies P1 and P2 before the eukaryotic kingdoms including plants developed(More)
The isolation and characterization of a cDNA clone from Zea mays coding for a novel glycine-rich protein (GRP) is described. The corresponding 1.4 kb mRNA accumulates exclusively in roots (primary, lateral seminal and crown roots) of young maize seedlings, following developmentally specific patterns. In agreement with previously described GRPs from other(More)
The gene system of the TATA-box binding protein (TBP) is well suited for the study of the evolutionary conservation of essential components of eukaryotic transcription initiation. In this context we have isolated and sequenced the maize TBP gene for a comparison with TBP genes from other organisms. In particular, a molecular phylogenetic analysis of the(More)
