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

Insight into the Molecular Evolution of Non-Specific Lipid Transfer Proteins via Comparative Analysis Between Rice and Sorghum
Phylogenetic analysis was conducted on 9 kDa non-specific lipid transfer protein (nsLTP) genes from nine plant species. Each of the five classified types in angiosperms exhibited eight conservedExpand

Trait-to-Gene A Computational Method for Predicting the Function of Uncharacterized Genes
The function of unknown genes is often inferred from comparisons to well-characterized homologs. In this paper, we show that, even if all of the homologs of a gene are unannotated, its function mayExpand

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

Cloning and characterization of the new multiple stress responsible gene I (MuSI) from sweet potato
New multiple-stress related gene isolated from sweet potato and designated it as MusI (multiple stress responsible gene I). Sequence analysis revealed that its full length cDNA was 998 bp long andExpand

Expressional diversity of wheat nsLTP genes: evidence of subfunctionalization via cis-regulatory divergence
Previously, the wheat non-specific lipid transfer proteins (TaLTP), members of a small multigene family, were reported to evidence a complex pattern of expression regulation. In order to assessExpand

Molecular phylogeny of arthropods and their relatives: polyphyletic origin of arthropodization.
Because the enigmatic arthropod relatives, such as tardigrades, onychophorans, pentastomids, and pycnogonids, have features characteristic of not only both major arthropod groups but also severalExpand

Mitochondrial DNA haplogroups and homogeneity in the Korean population
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroup data provide valuable information for inferring patterns of variation and population structure of maternal lineages. In this study, we analyzed the distributionExpand
