Recent African origin of modern humans revealed by complete sequences of hominoid mitochondrial DNAs.
We analyzed the complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences of three humans (African, European, and Japanese), three African apes (common and pygmy chimpanzees, and gorilla), and one orangutan in anExpand

Incomplete maternal transmission of mitochondrial DNA in Drosophila.
The possibility of incomplete maternal transmission of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in Drosophila, previously suggested by the presence of heteroplasmy, was examined by intra- and interspecificExpand

Peopling of the Americas, founded by four major lineages of mitochondrial DNA.
Nucleotide sequence analysis of the major noncoding region of human mitochondrial DNA from various races was extended with 72 Native Americans from 16 different local populations (nine populationsExpand

Man's place in hominoidea revealed by mitochondrial DNA genealogy
SummaryMolecular biology has resurrected C. Darwin and T.H. Huxley's question about the origin of humans, but the precise branching pattern and dating remain controversial. To settle this issue, aExpand

Analysis of paternal transmission of mitochondrial DNA in Drosophila.
It has previously been shown that paternal mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) can be detected in later generations in Drosophila. To further analyze the paternal transmission of mtDNA, the progeny of twoExpand

Diversification of olfactory receptor genes in the Japanese medaka fish, Oryzias latipes.
Vertebrate olfactory receptors (OR) exists as the largest multigene family, scattered throughout the genome in clusters. Studies have shown that different animals possess remarkably diverse set of ORExpand

Use of SV40 to immunize against hepatitis B surface antigen: implications for the use of SV40 for gene transduction and its use as an immunizing agent
We have described a novel gene transfer system, in which replication-incompetent, T antigen-deleted simian virus-40 (SV40) is used as the transduction vehicle. We report here successful immunizationExpand

Phylogenetic affiliation of ancient and contemporary humans inferred from mitochondrial DNA.
Nucleotide sequence analysis of the major non-coding region of human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from three major races was extended with data from 27 contemporary Mongoloids (20 from southeast Asia,Expand

Evolution of hominoid mitochondrial DNA with special reference to the silent substitution rate over the genome
SummaryFocusing on the synonymous substitution rate, we carried out detailed sequence analyses of hominoid mitochondrial (mt) DNAs of ca. 5-kb length. Owing to the outnumbered transitions and strongExpand

Further observation of paternal transmission of Drosophila mitochondrial DNA by PCR selective amplification method.
By designing 3' ends of primers in PCR (polymerase chain reaction), a specific DNA fragment was selectively amplified in the presence of a 10(3)-fold excess of highly homologous (sequence differenceExpand
