Mitochondrial protein phylogeny joins myriapods with chelicerates
The animal phylum Arthropoda is very useful for the study of body plan evolution given its abundance of morphologically diverse species and our profound understanding of Drosophila development.Expand
Determination and geographical distribution of Orientia tsutsugamushi serotypes in Korea by nested polymerase chain reaction.
Field rodents and chigger mites were collected at 30 locations in Korea in October and November 1997-1999 to determine the serotypes of Orientia tsutsugamushi and their geographical distribution. AExpand
Complete mitochondrial genome of the Hodgson's bat Myotis formosus (Mammalia, Chiroptera, Vespertilionidae)
The first complete mitochondrial genome (17,159 bp) of the Hodgson's bat Myotis formosus, which is an endangered species in South Korea, was sequenced and characterized. The genome included 13Expand
Daily survival and human blood index of Anopheles sinensis, the vector species of malaria in Korea.
To evaluate the vector efficiency of Anopheles sinensis in transmitting vivax malaria in the northern part of Gyonggi-do, South Korea, daily survival and feeding host preferences were studied duringExpand
Complete mitochondrial genome of Bugula neritina (Bryozoa, Gymnolaemata, Cheilostomata): phylogenetic position of Bryozoa and phylogeny of lophophorates within the Lophotrochozoa
BackgroundThe phylogenetic position of Bryozoa is one of the most controversial issues in metazoan phylogeny. In an attempt to address this issue, the first bryozoan mitochondrial genome fromExpand
Evolution of Hypervariable Regions, V4 and V7, of Insect 18S rRNA and Their Phylogenetic Implications
Abstract We compared primary and secondary structures of V4 (helices E23-2 to E23-5) and V7 (helix 43) regions of 18S rRNAs in insects and the other three major arthropod groups (crustaceans,Expand

  • 19 May 2007
The Anopheles (Anopheles) Hyrcanus group of mosquitoes is very important for human health because some are malarial vector mosquitoes. Despite their pathological importance, some unidentifiedExpand
The complete mitochondrial genome of the sea spider Achelia bituberculata (Pycnogonida, Ammotheidae): arthropod ground pattern of gene arrangement
BackgroundThe phylogenetic position of pycnogonids is a long-standing and controversial issue in arthropod phylogeny. This controversy has recently been rekindled by differences in the conclusionsExpand
Molecular phylogeny of the salamandrid genus Neurergus: evidence for an intrageneric switch of reproductive biology
A molecular phylogeny of the salamandrid genus Neurergus was reconstructed based on two sections of the 12S and 16S mitochondrial ribosomal genes (810 bp), 19 allozyme and three plasma protein loci.Expand
DNA Barcoding of Metazoan Zooplankton Copepods from South Korea
Copepods, small aquatic crustaceans, are the most abundant metazoan zooplankton and outnumber every other group of multicellular animals on earth. In spite of ecological and biological importance inExpand
