SPECIATION IN MAMMALS AND THE GENETIC SPECIES CONCEPT
Abstract We define a genetic species as a group of genetically compatible interbreeding natural populations that is genetically isolated from other such groups. This focus on genetic isolation ratherExpand

Toward a Molecular Phylogeny for Peromyscus: Evidence from Mitochondrial Cytochrome-b Sequences
Abstract One hundred DNA sequences from the mitochondrial cytochrome-b gene of 44 species of deer mice (Peromyscus (sensu stricto), 1 of Habromys, 1 of Isthmomys, 2 of Megadontomys, and the monotypicExpand

Cytosolic isocitrate dehydrogenase in humans, mice, and voles and phylogenetic analysis of the enzyme family.
In this study, we report cDNA sequences of the cytosolic NADP-dependent isocitrate dehydrogenase for humans, mice, and two species of voles (Microtus mexicanus and Microtus ochrogaster). InferredExpand

Overproduction of fumarate reductase in Escherichia coli induces a novel intracellular lipid-protein organelle.
The expression of fumarate reductase in Escherichia coli has been amplified over 30-fold by utilizing a recombinant plasmid, pFR63 , carrying the fumarate reductase operon. More than 50% of theExpand

What Is Peromyscus? Evidence from Nuclear and Mitochondrial DNA Sequences Suggests the Need for a New Classification
The evolutionary relationships between Peromyscus, Habromys, Isthmomys, Megadontomys, Neotomodon, Osgoodomys, and Podomys are poorly understood. In order to further explore the evolutionaryExpand

PATTERNS OF KARYOTYPIC MEGAEVOLUTION IN REITHRODONTOMYS: EVIDENCE FROM A CYTOCHROME-b PHYLOGENETIC HYPOTHESIS
Abstract Phylogenetic relationships among 7 species of Reithrodontomys were examined using the complete mitochondrial cytochrome-b gene. DNA-sequence data were analyzed using parsimony (weighted andExpand

Patterns of Chromosomal Evolution in Sigmodon, Evidence from Whole Chromosome Paints
Of the superfamily Muroidea (31 genera, 1578 species), the Sigmodontinae (74 genera, 377 species) is the second largest subfamily in number of species and represents a significant radiation of rodentExpand
