Molecular phylogenetics at the Felsenstein zone: approaching the Strepsiptera problem using 5.8S and 28S rDNA sequences.
Recent efforts to reconstruct the phylogenetic position of the insect order Strepsiptera have elicited a major controversy in molecular phylogenetics. We sequenced the 5.8S rDNA and major parts ofExpand

One-step PCR amplification of complete arthropod mitochondrial genomes.
A new PCR primer set which enables one-step amplification of complete arthropod mitochondrial genomes was designed from two conserved 16S rDNA regions for the long PCR technique. For this purpose,Expand

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

Putative secondary structures of unusually long strepsipteran SSU rRNAs and its phylogenetic implications.
We constructed the putative secondary structures of the small subunit rRNAs (SSU rRNA) from three strepsipteran insects. The primary sequences of the strepsipteran SSU rRNAs are unusually long due toExpand

Sequences of the 18S rDNAs from two Collembolan insects: shorter sequences in the V4 and V7 regions.
The complete 18S rDNA sequences were determined for Hypogastrura sp. and Crossodonthina koreana (Insecta: Collembola) using PCR cloning and Taq dideoxy sequencing. These two wingless insects showExpand
