Abstract. Dinoflagellates are a trophically diverse group of protists with photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic members that appears to incorporate and lose endosymbionts relatively easily. To trace the gain and loss of plastids in dinoflagellates, we have sequenced the nuclear small subunit rRNA gene of 28 photosynthetic and four non-photosynthetic species, and produced phylogenetic trees with a total of 81 dinoflagellate sequences. Patterns of plastid gain, loss, and replacement were plotted… Expand
Plastid genes in a non-photosynthetic dinoflagellate.
TLDR
Genetic data indicate that Crypthecodinium cohnii is derived from a photosynthetic ancestor and provide a model for loss of photosynthesis in dinoflagellates and their relatives, the first extensive genomic analysis of a heterotrophic dinof lagellate. Expand
Molecular evidence for plastid robbery (Kleptoplastidy) in Dinophysis, a dinoflagellate causing diarrhetic shellfish poisoning.
TLDR
The present findings suggest that these Dinophysis species engulfed and temporarily retained plastids from a cryptophyte, and may have originally possessed peridinin-type plastid and lost it subsequently, and adopted a new plASTid from a Cryptophyte. Expand
Plastid Complexity in Dinoflagellates: A Picture of Gains, Losses, Replacements and Revisions
TLDR
New insights into dinoflagellate plastid biology and diversity are suggested and it is suggested that it is timely to revise notions of the origin of the peridinin plastids. Expand
Phylogeny of Dinoflagellate Plastid Genes Recently Transferred to the Nucleus Supports a Common Ancestry with Red Algal Plastid Genes
TLDR
The close relationship between stramenopile plastid genes and their dinoflagellate nuclear-encoded homologues is consistent with the hypothesis that red algal-type plastids have arisen only once in evolution. Expand
5 The origin of the dinoflagellate plastid
TLDR
It is now possible to directly test hypotheses of plastid origin within dinoflagellates and the chlorophyll c containing algae, and data suggest massive chloroplast to nucleus gene transfer in din oflagella, and fits well with the small complement of minicircle genes. Expand
Genome Fragmentation Is Not Confined to the Peridinin Plastid in Dinoflagellates
TLDR
Decatenation assays and Southern blot analysis indicate that the extrachromosomal plastid sequences do not have the same organization or lengths as the minicircles of the peridinin dinoflagellates. Expand
Combined Heat Shock Protein 90 and Ribosomal RNA Sequence Phylogeny Supports Multiple Replacements of Dinoflagellate Plastids
TLDR
The usefulness of the heat shock protein (Hsp) 90 gene seems to be a promising phylogenetic marker for dinoflagellate phylogeny by sequencing it from four species with aberrant plastids and constructing phylogenetic trees for Hsp90 and rRNAs. Expand
A single loss of photosynthesis in the diatom order Bacillariales (Bacillariophyta).
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses showed that genes from all three genetic compartments either supported or failed to reject monophyly of apochloritic Nitzschia species, consistent with a single loss of photosynthesis in this group of diatoms. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of symbiotic dinoflagellates inferred from partial chloroplast large subunit (23S)-rDNA sequences.
TLDR
Comparisons of sequence dissimilarity indicated that cp23S-rDNA Domain V evolves 9-30 times faster than the V1-V4 regions of nuclear small sub unit (n18S)-rDNA, 1-7 times as fast as the D1-D3 regions ofnuclear large subunit (n28S)- rDNA, and 0.27-2.25 times that of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS)-r DNA region.

PHYLOGENETIC EVIDENCE FOR THE CRYPTOPHYTE ORIGIN OF THE PLASTID OF DINOPHYSIS (DINOPHYSIALES, DINOPHYCEAE) 1
Photosynthetic members of the genus Dinophysis Ehrenberg contain a plastid of uncertain origin. Ultrastructure and pigment analyses suggest that the two‐membrane‐bound plastid of Dinophysis spp. hasExpand

Phylogeny of Ultra-Rapidly Evolving Dinoflagellate Chloroplast Genes: A Possible Common Origin for Sporozoan and Dinoflagellate Plastids
TLDR
The results for all three genes fit the idea that dinoflagellate chloroplasts originated from red algae by a secondary endosymbiosis, possibly the same one as for chromists and Sporozoa. Expand
Ribosomal RNA Evidence for Chloroplast Loss within Heterokonta: Pedinellid Relationships and a Revised Classification of Ochristan Algae
TLDR
All four methods show that these ciliophryid pedinellids are most closely related to Pelagomonas calceolata, which supports the recent classification of the classes Pedinellea and Pelagophycea in the superclass Dictyochia, which is the first convincing molecular evidence for the total loss of plastids in any organism. Expand
Single gene circles in dinoflagellate chloroplast genomes
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicates that dinoflagellate chloroplasts are related to chromistan and red algal chloroplastics and supports their origin by secondary symbiogenesis, and the genes are the most divergent known from chloroplast genomes. Expand
Ribosomal RNA Analysis Indicates a Benthic Pennate Diatom Ancestry for the Endosymbionts of the Dinoflagellates Peridinium foliaceum and Peridinium balticum (Pyrrhophyta)
TLDR
This study has examined the phylogenetic origin of the P. foliaceum and P. Balticum heterokont endosymbionts through analaysis of their nuclear small subunit ribosomal RNA genes, and clearly demonstrates both endosYmbiont are pennate diatoms belonging to the family Bacillariaceae. Expand
Nuclear-encoded, plastid-targeted genes suggest a single common origin for apicomplexan and dinoflagellate plastids.
TLDR
Results address several outstanding issues and indicate that apicomplexan and dinoflagellate plastids appear to be the result of a single endosymbiotic event which occurred relatively early in eukaryotic evolution, also giving rise to the plastid-targeted GAPDH genes of heterokonts and cryptomonads.

Tracing the Thread of Plastid Diversity through the Tapestry of Life
  • C. Delwiche

TLDR
The eukaryotic crown group Alveolata has a particularly complex history of plastid acquisition, and may or may not be descended from a single endosymbiotic event. Expand
Dinophyte chloroplasts and phylogeny - A review
TLDR
The form II type RUBISCO found in the dinophytes is unique for eukaryotes, otherwise known only in some anaerobic bacteria, and it is disputed whether the original dinophyte chloroplasts are derived from a prokaryotic or an eUKaryotic endosymbiosis. Expand
Principles of Protein and Lipid Targeting in Secondary Symbiogenesis: Euglenoid, Dinoflagellate, and Sporozoan Plastid Origins and the Eukaryote Family Tree 1 , 2
TLDR
It is argued that dinoflagellate and sporozoan plastids are directly related and that the common ancestor of dinof lagellates and Sporozoa was photosynthetic, and a novel theory for the function of periplastid vesicles in membrane biogenesis of chlorarachneans and chromists is proposed. Expand
Phylogenetic analyses indicate that the 19'Hexanoyloxy-fucoxanthin-containing dinoflagellates have tertiary plastids of haptophyte origin.
TLDR
Analyses of SSU rDNA from the plastid and the nuclear genome of these dinoflagellate species indicate that they have acquired their plastids via endosymbiosis of a haptophyte, and distance, parsimony, and maximum-likelihood phylogenetic analyses of plastido rRNA gene sequences place the three species within the haptophical clade.

TLDR
This work has added molecular characters from the Small Subunit (SSU) rDNA to generate an overall phylogenetic framework for the euglenoids, a distinct monophyletic clade with phagotrophic members diverging prior to the phototrophic and osmotrophicMembers. Expand
