An updated phylogeny of oligotrich and choreotrich ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Spirotrichea) with representative taxa collected from Chinese coastal waters
TLDR
The authors' analyses support the previous reports that the genus Tintinnopsis is polyphyletic and can not refute the monophyly of Strombidium. Expand
N6-adenine DNA methylation is associated with the linker DNA of H2A.Z-containing well-positioned nucleosomes in Pol II-transcribed genes in Tetrahymena
TLDR
The first genome-wide, base pair-resolution map of 6mA in Tetrahymena is provided by applying single-molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing and supports that 6mA is an integral part of the chromatin landscape shaped by adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-dependent chromatin remodeling and transcription. Expand
Phylogeny of Six Genera of the Subclass Haptoria (Ciliophora, Litostomatea) Inferred from Sequences of the Gene Coding for Small Subunit Ribosomal RNA
TLDR
Both the subclass Haptoria and the order Haptorida were partially unresolved, possibly paraphyletic assemblages of taxa in all analyses, creating doubts about the traditional placement of some haptorid taxa. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny of the Cyrtophorid Ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Phyllopharyngea)
TLDR
The results indicated that the assignment of cyrtophorians into two orders is consistently confirmed in all topologies and the order Dysteriida is an outlined monophyletic assemblage while Chlamydodontida is paraphyletic with three separate monophylettic families. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Pseudokeronopsis (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Urostylida), with reconsideration of three closely related species at inter‐ and intra‐specific levels inferred from the small subunit
TLDR
The result supports the closest relationship of Pseudokeronopsis and Pseudourostyla that forms the so-called Acaudalia Berger (2006) and confirms that Pseudok. Expand
Impaired replication elongation in Tetrahymena mutants deficient in histone H3 Lys 27 monomethylation.
TLDR
Findings support a conserved pathway through which H3K27me1 facilitates replication elongation in Tetrahymena thermophila, and demonstrate interactions between TXR1 and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA). Expand
Parabirojimia multinucleata spec. nov. and Anteholosticha scutellum (Cohn, 1866) Berger, 2003, marine ciliates (Ciliophora, Hypotrichida) from tropical waters in southern China, with notes on their
TLDR
Observations of specimens in vivo and following protargol impregnation revealed new information concerning structures such as the cortical granules and the infraciliature of Parabirojimia multinucleata. Expand
Reconsideration of the Phylogenetic Position of Frontonia-related Peniculia (Ciliophora, Protozoa) Inferred from the Small Subunit Ribosomal RNA Gene Sequences
TLDR
The SS rRNA gene sequence determines that the well-outlined genus Frontonia appears to be a paraphyletic assemblage, in which the morphotype Frontonia didieri is more closely related to Apofrontonia than to its congeners. Expand
N6-methyladenine DNA modification in the unicellular eukaryotic organism Tetrahymena thermophila.
TLDR
The features and potential functions of 6mA in Tetrahymena thermophila and other ciliates, and the major findings and contributions of the TetrahYmena model in studies of 6AMA methylation are summarized. Expand
Phylogenetic position of three Condylostoma species (Protozoa, Ciliophora, Heterotrichea) inferred from the small subunit rRNA gene sequence
TLDR
The small subunit ribosomal RNA (SS rRNA) gene of three marine Condylostoma species was sequenced, by which the phylogenetic trees were constructed by distance-matrix, maximum parsimony and Bayesian inference methods, showing that all the trees have similar topologies with high supports. Expand
