The suspension-feeding metazoan subkingdom Lophophorata exhibits characteristics of both deuterostomes and protostomes. Because the morphology and embryology of lophophorates are phylogenetically ambiguous, their origin is a major unsolved problem of metazoan phylogenetics. The complete 18S ribosomal DNA sequences of all three lophophorate phyla were obtained and analyzed to clarify the phylogenetic relationships of this subkingdom. Sequence analyses show that lophophorates are protostomes… Expand
The mitochondrial genome of Phoronis architecta--comparisons demonstrate that phoronids are lophotrochozoan protostomes.
The proper reconstruction of the relationships among the animal phyla is central to interpreting patterns of animal evolution from the genomic level to the morphological level. This is true not onlyExpand
Lophotrochozoa, Diversification of
TLDR
Lophotrochozoa is a monophyletic group of animals that comprise annelids, molluscs, brachiopods, moss animals, flatworms, and their relatives that includes a broad diversity of body plans. Expand
Origin of the Mesozoa inferred from 18S rRNA gene sequences.
TLDR
The sequence analysis shows that the Mesozoa branch early in the animal evolution, closely to nematodes and myxozoans, suggests probably separate origins of rhombozoids and orthonectids, suggesting that their placement in the same phylum needs to be revised. Expand
Chaetognath phylogenomics: a protostome with deuterostome-like development
TLDR
This work has shown that some phyla, such as the lophphorate phyla Phoronida and Brachiopoda as well as the Chaetognatha exhibit classical deuterostome embryological features such as formation of the mesoderm from the gut (enterocoely) and secondary opening of the mouth. Expand
Lophotrochozoan relationships and parasites. A snap-shot.
TLDR
Current knowledge of lophotrochozoan relationships is reviewed and the place that parasites occupy in this phylogeny is discussed, and a close relationship between phoronids and brachiopods, as well as between bryozoans and kamptozoans is suggested. Expand
Ecdysozoa : the relationship between Cycloneuralia and Panarthropoda
TLDR
The branching pattern within Ecdysozoa has been difficult to elucidate, but it now appears that priapulids and kinorhynchs form the earliest branching clade, followed by nematodes + nematomorphs, and finally the panarthropods, which suggests that Cycloneuralia is paraphyletic and that arthropods are the most derived of the ecdy sozoans. Expand
Spiralian phylogenomics supports the resurrection of Bryozoa comprising Ectoprocta and Entoprocta.
TLDR
The findings suggest that classical developmental and morphological key characters such as cleavage pattern, coelomic cavities, gut architecture, and body segmentation are subject to greater evolutionary plasticity than traditionally assumed. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the bivalve mollusks.
TLDR
A phylogenetic reconstruction based on 506 nucleotides near the 5' end of the 18S subunit of ribosomal DNA (rDNA) in 2 gastropod, 3 chiton and 28 bivalve mollusks could not confidently establish either the monophyly or the phylogenetic relationships of the morphologically well defined subclasses Pteriomorphia, Protobranchia, and Anomalodesmata. Expand
Evidence of lophophore diversity in Early Cambrian Brachiopoda
TLDR
These primitive lophophores of two inarticulated brachiopods Lingulella chengjiangensis and Heliomedusa orienta, from the Lower Cambrian Chengjiang fauna (Yunnan, China), have some key characters that may be plesiomorphies inherited by their recent descendants. Expand
The early emergence of platyhelminths is contradicted by the agreement between 18S rRNA and Hox genes data.

TLDR
New evidence from the sequences of Hox genes suggests that the duplicated genes Ultrabithorax/abdominal-A constitute a genetic synapomorphy of the whole protostome clade, compatible with the old idea that flatworms are derived from a coelomate ancestor. Expand

The phylogenetic affinities of the chaetognaths: a molecular analysis.
TLDR
This work proposes that the lineage leading to the chaetognaths arose prior to the advent of the coelomate metazoa, and isolation and nucleotide sequence determination of 18S ribosomal DNA from one species of Chaetognath and one acanthocephalan are described. Expand

TLDR
Analysis of rate invariant analysis of 18S rRNA sequences indicates that the Metazoa is a monophyletic taxon, and the Annelida-Mollusca lineage is the sister group of an arthropod subgroup. Expand
Evidence from 12S ribosomal RNA sequences that onychophorans are modified arthropods.
TLDR
Parsimony analysis suggests that onychophorans form a sister group to chelicerates and crustaceans plus hexapods, but this relationship is not well supported by monophyly testing, which conflict with current hypotheses of evolutionary pathways within arthropods. Expand

TLDR
Phylogenetic comparisons of the sequences of 18S rDNA suggest the monophyly of the deuterostomes, with the exception of the chaetognaths, and support the hypothesis that chordates evolved from free-living ancestors. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the animal kingdom.
TLDR
A rapid sequencing method for ribosomal RNA was applied to the resolution of evolutionary relationships among Metazoa, finding that coelomates radiated rapidly into four groups: chordates, echinoderms, arthropods, and eucoelomate protostomes. Expand
An analysis of the origin of metazoans, using comparisons of partial sequences of the 28S RNA, reveals an early emergence of triploblasts.
TLDR
Compared sequences from the 5′ end of the large subunit ribosomal RNA of a number of protists, fungi, plants and metazoans, including all diploblastic phyla, showed a much more ancient origin of triploblasts with respect to diplobasts than classically assumed. Expand
Annelida and Arthropoda are Not Sister Taxa: A Phylogenetic Analysis of Spiralian Metazoan Morphology
TLDR
This study presents a new analysis of 141 independently assembled characters, purported to represent the current state of knowledge of metazoan morphology and embryology, and results in robust support of the Eutrochozoa hypothesis. Expand
CLADISTIC ANALYSIS OF METAZOAN RELATIONSHIPS: A REAPPRAISAL
TLDR
An analysis of metazoan relationships based on 77 embryological and morphological characters is shown to be defective with respect to both methodological issues and the interpretation of certain characters, and alternative phylogenetic hypotheses are proposed, based on a re-evaluation of an adapted data set. Expand
The monophyletic origin of the Brachiopoda
TLDR
Cladistic analysis of both living forms and Lower Paleozoic taxa strongly supports the contention that brachiopods are monophytetic and closely related to the phoronids and suggests, however, that the ‘inarticulate’ Paterinida and Kutorginida are genealogically more closely related than they are to the remaining Inarticulata.

TLDR
These findings are consistent with the hypothesis that the tentaculated arms of pterobranchs are homologous to the lophophores of brachiopods, phoronids, and bryozoans. Expand
