Recent Advances in Our Knowledge of the Myxozoa
TLDR
It is indicated that the Myxozoa are closely related to Cnidaria, and marine taxa at the genus level branch separately from genera that usually infect freshwater fishes; taxa cluster more by development and tissue location than by spore morphology.
Phylogeny of Pacific salmon and trout based on growth hormone type-2 and mitochondrial NADH dehydrogenase subunit 3 DNA sequences
TLDR
The phylogeny inferred by total evidence cladistic analysis of the data combined with five different morphological, biochemical, and DNA character sets provides evidence that the common ancestor of rainbow and cutthroat trout was the first to diverge from the proto-Oncorhynchus evolutionary line, which then radiated to form the seven extant Pacific salmon species.
Ribosomal DNA Sequence Analysis of Isolates of the PKX Myxosporean and Their Relationship to Members of the Genus Sphaerospora
TLDR
With these primers, a portion of the SSU rDNA of PKX was amplified and sequenced from the kidneys of infected salmonids from British Columbia, Washington, California, Newfoundland, and England, indicating that PKX isolates from dif...
Development and application of a salmonid EST database and cDNA microarray: data mining and interspecific hybridization characteristics.
TLDR
Higher- and lower-molecular-weight fractions of libraries are shown to contain distinct gene sets, and higher rates of gene discovery are associated with higher- molecular weight libraries.
PCR primed with VNTR core sequences yields species specific patterns and hypervariable probes.
TLDR
A simple technique that directs polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification to regions rich in variable number of tandem repeats (VNTRs) is developed, which amplified fragments that showed little variation within a species, but did show differences between species.
Phylogeny of the lamprey genus Lampetra inferred from mitochondrial cytochrome b and ND3 gene sequences
TLDR
Mitochrondrial DNA analysis resolved many previously unanswered questions concerning the phylogeny of the lamprey genus Lampetra (comprising the subgenera Entosphenus, Lethenteron, and Lampetras) using rates of molecular evolution estimated in other fish taxa.
Taxonomy of Kudoa species (Myxosporea), using a small-subunit ribosomal DNA sequence.
TLDR
sequence comparisons indicated that Kudoa species cluster by geographic location rather than by morphology of spores, and three species from the eastern Pacific were approximately 97%...
