A RAPID SIMPLE TECHNIQUE UTILIZING CALCOFLUOR WHITE M2R FOR THE VISUALIZATION OF DINOFLAGELLATE THECAL PLATES 1
The fluorescent stain Calcofluor White M2R readily binds to cellulose and other β‐linked glucans (Hughs and McCully 1975). We have found the stain to readily bind to the thecal plates of armoredExpand
A MOLECULAR ANALYSIS OF THE EUGLENOPHYTES USING SSU RDNA
Almost since the creation of the genus Euglena (Ehrenberg), the taxa assigned to it have been separated, split apart, and reorganized into new genera based on morphological relationships, resultingExpand
Phylogenetic analysis of phagotrophic, photomorphic and osmotrophic euglenoids by using the nuclear 18S rDNA sequence.
Phylogenetic analyses of 35 strains including 25 previously published sequences and 10 which have been newly sequenced, representing two species of Euglena, five species of Phacus and three speciesExpand
Character evolution in heterotrophic euglenids
This article attempts to describe the key morphological innovations associated with the evolutionary transitions between bacteriotrophy, eukaryotrophy, phototrophy, and osmotrophy in euglenids.Expand
A Molecular Study of Euglenoid Phylogeny using Small Subunit rDNA
ABSTRACT The euglenoids are an ancient and extremely diverse lineage of eukaryotic flagellates with unclear relationships among taxa. Synapomorphies for the euglenoids include a surface pellicle andExpand
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF SELECTED EUGLENOID GENERA BASED ON MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR DATA 1
The small subunit rRNA (SSU rRNA) coding regions sequenced from the euglenoids Petalomonas cantuscygni, Peranema trichophorum, and Khawkinea quartana were used to assess the phylogeneticExpand
MORPHOLOGICAL SEPARATION OF THE EUGLENOID GENERA TRACHELOMONAS AND STROMBOMONAS (EUGLENOPHYTA) BASED ON LORICA DEVELOPMENT AND POSTERIOR STRIP REDUCTION 1
Since the separation of the Trachelomonas Ehrenberg subgroup “Saccatae” into a new genus, Strombomonas Deflandre (1930) , there has been some question as to its validity. Deflandre's separation wasExpand
An ultrastructural comparison of the mitotic apparatus, feeding apparatus, flagellar apparatus and cytoskeleton in euglenoids and kinetoplastids
SummaryThe euglenoids and kinetoplastids form a diverse assemblage of organisms which show no obvious phylogenetic relationship with other flagellates. An ultrastructural examination and comparisonExpand
Chloroplast Genome Evolution in the Euglenaceae
Over the last few years multiple studies have been published outlining chloroplast genomes that represent many of the photosynthetic euglenid genera. However, these genomes were scattered throughoutExpand
Reconstructing euglenoid evolutionary relationships using three genes: nuclear SSU and LSU, and chloroplast SSU rDNA sequences and the description of Euglenaria gen. nov. (Euglenophyta).
Using Maximum Likelihood and Bayesian analyses of three genes, nuclear SSU (nSSU) and LSU (nLSU) rDNA, and chloroplast SSU (cpSSU) rDNA, the relationships among 82 plastid-containing strains ofExpand
