The Chlorophyceae (sensu Mattox and Stewart) is a morphologically diverse class of the Chlorophyta displaying biflagellate and quadriflagellate motile cells with varying configurations of the flagellar apparatus. Phylogenetic analyses of 18S rDNA data and combined 18S and 26S rDNA data from a broad range of chlorophycean taxa uncovered five major monophyletic groups (Chlamydomonadales, Sphaeropleales, Oedogoniales, Chaetophorales, and Chaetopeltidales) but could not resolve their branching… Expand
Chloroplast DNA sequence of the green alga Oedogonium cardiacum (Chlorophyceae): Unique genome architecture, derived characters shared with the Chaetophorales and novel genes acquired through horizontal transfer
TLDR
The complete cpDNA sequence of Oedogonium cardiacum (Oedogoniales) is described, which provides a clear example that novel genes were acquired by the chloroplast genome through horizontal transfers, possibly from a mitochondrial genome donor. Expand
The chloroplast genomes of the green algae Pedinomonas minor, Parachlorella kessleri, and Oocystis solitaria reveal a shared ancestry between the Pedinomonadales and Chlorellales.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that chlorellalean and pedinomonadalean green algae are reduced forms of a distant biflagellate ancestor that might have also given rise to the other known trebouxiophycean lineages. Expand
Chloroplast phylogenomic analysis of chlorophyte green algae identifies a novel lineage sister to the Sphaeropleales (Chlorophyceae)
TLDR
A chloroplast phylogenomic study advances knowledge regarding the circumscription and internal structure of the Chlamydomonadales, suggesting that a previously unrecognized lineage is sister to the Sphaeropleales. Expand
Nested in the Chlorellales or independent class? Phylogeny and classification of the Pedinophyceae (Viridiplantae) revealed by molecular phylogenetic analyses of complete nuclear and plastid-encoded rRNA operons.
TLDR
Complete nuclear and plastid-encoded rRNA operon sequences have been determined for 37 taxa of green algae including 6 members of the Pedinophyceae, providing 9272 aligned nucleotide positions and revealed conserved habitat preferences for the Marsupiomonadales and Pedinomonadale, and identified several novel pedinophyte lineages. Expand
The chloroplast genomes of the green algae Pyramimonas, Monomastix, and Pycnococcus shed new light on the evolutionary history of prasinophytes and the origin of the secondary chloroplasts of euglenids.
TLDR
It is revealed that major reduction in gene content and restructuring of the chloroplast genome occurred in conjunction with important changes in cell organization in at least two independent prasinophyte lineages, the Mamiellales and the Pycnococcaceae. Expand
Proliferation of group II introns in the chloroplast genome of the green alga Oedocladium carolinianum (Chlorophyceae)
TLDR
The results suggest that chloroplast genes rearrange more slowly in the Oedogoniales than in the Chaetophorales and raise questions as to what was the nature of the foreign coding sequences in the IR of the common ancestor of the Oesidiumes. Expand
Taxonomic scheme of the order Chaetophorales (Chlorophyceae, Chlorophyta) based on chloroplast genomes
TLDR
Phylogenomic and comparative genomic analysis revealed that the chloroplast genomes of Schizomeriaceae and Aphanochaetaceae were highly conserved and homologous, highlighting the closest relationship in this order. Expand
Probing the Monophyly of the Sphaeropleales (Chlorophyceae) Using Data From Five Genes
Molecular phylogenetic analyses have had a major impact on the classification of the green algal class Chlorophyceae, corroborating some previous evolutionary hypotheses, but primarily promoting newExpand
POLYPHYLY OF CHAETOPHORA AND STIGEOCLONIUM WITHIN THE CHAETOPHORALES (CHLOROPHYCEAE), REVEALED BY SEQUENCE COMPARISONS OF NUCLEAR‐ENCODED SSU rRNA GENES 1
TLDR
Results indicated that some commonly used taxonomic characters are either homoplasious or plesiomorphic and call for a reevaluation of the systematics of the Chaetophorales using novel morphological and molecular approaches. Expand
Complete mitogenomes of the chlorophycean green algae Bulbochaete rectangularis var. hiloensis (Oedogoniales) and Stigeoclonium helveticum (Chaetophorales) provide insight into the sequence of events that led to the acquisition of a reduced-derived pattern of evolution in the Chlamydomonadales and S
TLDR
It remains unclear whether the common ancestor of chlorophycean green algae harbored a reduced-derived or ancestral-type mitogenome, but the 70,191 and 46,765-bp mitogenomes reported here for Bulbochaete rectangularis var. Expand

ULTRASTRUCTURE AND PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF CHAETOPELTIDALES ORD. NOV. (CHLOROPHYTA, CHLOROPHYCEAE) 1
TLDR
The new order Chaetopeltidales is created to accommodate the genera Chaetobeltis, Hormotilopsis, Planophila sensu Groover & Hofstetter, Phyllogloea, Dicranochaete, and Schizochlamys, organisms previously scattered among the orders Tetrasporales, Chloro‐coccales,Chlorosarcinales, and Chaetophorales.

PHYLOGENY OF THE CHLOROPHYCEAE WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE SPHAEROPLEALES: A STUDY OF 18S AND 26S rDNA DATA
TLDR
This investigation demonstrated that the 26S rDNA gene provides more phylogenetic signal, per unit sequence, than the 18S r DNA gene and that combined analysis yields topologies with more robust support than independent analysis of either data set. Expand
The chloroplast genome sequence of the green alga Pseudendoclonium akinetum (Ulvophyceae) reveals unusual structural features and new insights into the branching order of chlorophyte lineages.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of 58 cpDNA-encoded proteins and genes support the hypothesis that the Ulvophyceae is sister to the Trebouxiophyeae but cannot eliminate the hypothesis That the ULVophycee is sisters to the Chlorophycees. Expand
The chloroplast genome sequence of Chara vulgaris sheds new light into the closest green algal relatives of land plants.
TLDR
The phylogenies inferred from 76 cpDNA-encoded proteins and genes using various methods favor the hypothesis that the Charales diverged before the Coleochaetales and Zygnematales. Expand
The chloroplast genome sequence of the green alga Leptosira terrestris: multiple losses of the inverted repeat and extensive genome rearrangements within the Trebouxiophyceae
TLDR
The intriguing similarities of the derived features exhibited by Leptosira cpDNA and its chlorophycean counterparts suggest that the same evolutionary forces shaped the IR-lacking chloroplast genomes in these two algal lineages. Expand

TLDR
DNA sequences from the small‐subunit ribosomal RNA gene (SSU rRNA) of several members of each order are examined and it is shown that chaetophoralean and oedogonialean taxa form separate monophyletic groups. Expand
POLYPHYLETIC ORIGIN OF PARALLEL BASAL BODIES IN SWIMMING CELLS OF CHLOROPHYCEAN GREEN ALGAE (CHLOROPHYTA) 1

The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of the green alga Pseudendoclonium akinetum (Ulvophyceae) highlights distinctive evolutionary trends in the chlorophyta and suggests a sister-group relationship between the Ulvophyceae and Chlorophyceae.
TLDR
The mtDNA sequence of Pseudendoclonium akinetum, the largest green-algal mitochondrial genome sequenced to date, exhibits features typical of both the "ancestral" and "reduced-derived" patterns of evolution, and phylogenetic analyses of seven mtDNA-encoded proteins revealed a sister-group relationship between this ulvophyte and chlorophytes displaying "redirected" mtDNAs.

Identifying the basal angiosperm node in chloroplast genome phylogenies: sampling one's way out of the Felsenstein zone.
TLDR
Whereas long sequences reduce variance in branch lengths and molecular dating estimates, the impact of improved taxon sampling on the rooting of the angiosperm phylogeny together with the results of parametric bootstrap analyses demonstrate how long-branch attraction might mislead genome-scale phylogenetic analyses. Expand
Distinctive architecture of the chloroplast genome in the chlorophycean green alga Stigeoclonium helveticum
TLDR
The comparative genome analyses in a phylogenetic framework inferred an evolutionary scenario of the mutational events that led to changes in genome architecture in the Chlorophyceae, and suggested that the Stigeoclonium genome replicates bidirectionally from a single origin. Expand
