Homologous Protein Domains in Superkingdoms Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukaryota and the Problem of the Origin of Eukaryotes


The distribution of protein domains was analyzed in superkingdoms Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukaryota. About a half of eukaryotic domains have prokaryotic origin. Many domains related to information processing in the nucleocytoplasm were inherited from archaea. Sets of domains associated with metabolism and regulatory and signaling systems were inherited from… (More)
