The phylogenetic relationships of the biflagellate protist group Apusomonadidae have been unclear despite the availability of some molecular data. We analyzed sequences from 6 nuclear encoded genes-small-subunit rRNA, large-subunit rRNA, alpha-tubulin, beta-tubulin, actin, and heat shock protein 90-to infer the phylogenetic position of Apusomonas proboscidea Aléxéieff 1924. To increase the taxon richness of the study, we also obtained new sequences from representatives of several other major… CONTINUE READING
