We analyze the secondary structure of two expansion segments (D2, D3) of the 28S ribosomal (rRNA)-encoding gene region from 527 chalcidoid wasp taxa (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) representing 18 of the 19 extant families. The sequences are compared in a multiple sequence alignment, with secondary structure inferred primarily from the evidence of compensatory base changes in conserved helices of the rRNA molecules. This covariation analysis yielded 36 helices that are composed of base pairs… 
Predicted Secondary Structure for 28S and 18S rRNA from Ichneumonoidea (Insecta: Hymenoptera: Apocrita): Impact on Sequence Alignment and Phylogeny Estimation
TLDR
The phylogenetic utility of the structure-based alignment is explored by examining a subset of the data under a variety of optimality criteria using results from Belshaw and Quicke (2002) as a benchmark.
Secondary structure models of D2-D3 expansion segments of 28S rRNA for Hoplolaiminae species.
TLDR
The predicted secondary model and new sequence alignment based on predicted secondary structures for the D2 and D3 expansion segments provide useful information to assign positional nucleotide homology and reconstruction of more reliable phylogenetic trees.
Assessing the odd secondary structural properties of nuclear small subunit ribosomal RNA sequences (18S) of the twisted‐wing parasites (Insecta: Strepsiptera)
TLDR
The entire sequence and secondary structure of the nuclear small subunit ribosomal RNA (SSU rRNA) gene (18S) from the twisted‐wing parasite Caenocholax fenyesi texensis is reported and no support for the previously recovered heterogeneity in the 18S molecules of strepsipterans is found.
Insights into the structure and phylogeny of the 28S rRNA expansion segments D2 and D3 of the plant-infecting nematodes from the genus Ditylenchus (Nematoda: Anguinidae).
TLDR
Analysis of nucleotide sequences and predicted secondary structures of the 28S ribosomal RNA-coding gene for the plant-parasitic nematodes from the genus Ditylenchus and their related anguinids provide novel molecular data, which may be exploited in diagnostic tools for phytosanitary control of these economically important plant parasites.
Characteristics of the nuclear (18S, 5.8S, 28S and 5S) and mitochondrial (12S and 16S) rRNA genes of Apis mellifera (Insecta: Hymenoptera): structure, organization, and retrotransposable elements
TLDR
The report eventually is expected to shed light on the evolution of the hymenopteran genome within higher insects, particularly regarding the relative maintenance of conserved rDNA genes, related variable spacer regions and retrotransposable elements.
Genetic relatedness of six South Indian agriculturally important moth species (Lepidoptera: Noctuoidea) based on 28S rRNA-D 2 region sequence analysis
TLDR
The results reflect the functional diversity occurred due to the changes acquired slowly at the rRNA structure to perform their function during evolution rather than the homology in the nucleotide sequences or rRNA morphometry among different species of insects.
Utility of divergent domains of 28S ribosomal RNA in species discrimination of paramphistomes (Trematoda: Digenea: Paramphistomoidea)
TLDR
28S (D1–D3) rRNA provided a significant resolution of the taxa corroborating with the taxonomy of these flukes and thus proved to be more robust as a phylogenetic marker for lower levels than 18S rRNA.

A secondary structural model of the 28S rRNA expansion segments D2 and D3 from rootworms and related leaf beetles (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae; Galerucinae)
TLDR
An annotated secondary structural model for the D2 and D3 expansion segments of the 28S rRNA gene from 229 leaf beetles is reported that will prove useful in assigning positional nucleotide homology for phylogeny reconstruction in these and closely related beetle taxa.
18S rRNA secondary structure and phylogenetic position of Peloridiidae (Insecta, hemiptera).
TLDR
The peloridiid 18S RNA model presented here provides the most accurate template to date for aligning homologous nucleotides of hemipteran taxa and using folded 18S rRNA to infer homology of character as morpho-molecular structures or nucleotide and scoring particular sites or substructures is discussed.
Comparative analysis of mt LSU rRNA secondary structures of Odonates: structural variability and phylogenetic signal
TLDR
Full secondary structures of domains I, II, IV and V of Odonates and one representative of mayflies, Ephemera sp.
How slippage-derived sequences are incorporated into rRNA variable-region secondary structure: implications for phylogeny reconstruction.
TLDR
The secondary structure in the cicindelid V4 region may be conserved due to the dynamics of the mutational mechanism rather than to functional constraints, and these processes may also have a tendency to produce similar primary sequences irrespective of phylogenetic associations.
SEQUENCE AND SECONDARY STRUCTURE VARIATION IN THE GYRODACTYLUS (PLATYHELMINTHES: MONOGENEA) RIBOSOMAL RNA GENE ARRAY
TLDR
Examination of primary sequence variation and secondary structure models in ITS2 and variable region V4 of the small subunit rRNA revealed that structure was largely conserved despite significant variation in sequence.
Conserved sequence motifs, alignment, and secondary structure for the third domain of animal 12S rRNA.
TLDR
This work advocates the use of conserved motifs and other secondary structure information for assessing sequencing fidelity, and is similar to previous models but is more specific to mitochondrial DNA, fitting both invertebrate and vertebrate groups.
Phylogenetic relationships of Pleurotus species according to the sequence and secondary structure of the mitochondrial small-subunit rRNA V4, V6 and V9 domains.
TLDR
Results clearly showed that sequences of the V4, V6 and V9 domains of the mitochondrial SSU rRNA could provide good markers for use in the taxonomy and phylogeny of species of Basidiomycota.
A phylogenetic reconstruction of the Ichneumonoidea (Hymenoptera) based on the D2 variable region of 28S ribosomal RNA
TLDR
The D2 variable region of 28S rRNA was sequenced in a wide range of Ichneumonoidea to provide the first comprehensive phylogenetic reconstruction of this superfamily, finding one well‐supported clade dominated by the more plesiomorphic life history strategies.
Evolution of large-subunit rRNA structure. The diversification of divergent D3 domain among major phylogenetic groups.
TLDR
The mode of sequence variation of the D3 domain suggests this region of the molecule may encode elementary functions of rRNA which could have significantly diversified during the evolution of the major groups of organisms.
Simplicity-correlated size growth of the nuclear 28S ribosomal RNA D3 expansion segment in the crustacean order isopoda
TLDR
The discovery of extreme size variation of the D3 expansion segment in the crustacean order Isopoda is described, and the extreme size changes identified could indicate that expansion segments are an extraneous element in the functioning ribosome.
