Evolutionary relationships among eight species of Ursidae (including the giant panda) relative to two Procyonidae species (raccoon and red panda) were estimated based on the extent of electrophoretic variation of 289 radiolabelled fibroblast proteins resolved by two‐dimensional gel electrophoresis and among 44 isozyme loci resolved by one‐dimensional electrophoresis. Allelic differences among these species were converted to genetic distances, and phenetic trees were constructed. In addition… Expand
Phylogenetic reconstruction of South American felids defined by protein electrophoresis
TLDR
The results suggest that modern South American felids are monophyletic and evolved rapidly after the formation of the Panama land bridge between North and South America. Expand
Molecular evolution and phylogeny of theDrosophila virilis species group as inferred by two-dimensional electrophoresis
  • G. Spicer
  • Biology
  • Journal of Molecular Evolution
  • 2005
TLDR
It appears that the evolution of the major clades within the species group occurred about 20 million years ago, and suggestions that the rate of molecular evolution was different between the virilis and montana phylads was not confirmed. Expand
Rapid radiation events in the family Ursidae indicated by likelihood phylogenetic estimation from multiple fragments of mtDNA.
TLDR
It is suggested that the difficulties surrounding the resolution of the evolutionary relationships of the Ursidae are linked to the existence of sequential rapid radiation events in bear evolution, and unresolved branching orders during these time periods may represent an accurate representation of the evolved history of bear species.

PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF NORTH AMERICAN URSIDS BASED ON ANALYSIS OF MITOCHONDRIAL DNA
TLDR
Results of restriction fragment analysis of whole mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) as well as sequence descriptions of the cytochrome b genes and the control regions ofmtDNA of American black bears, brown bears, and polar bears are presented to attempt to contribute to a resolution of the phylogenetic relationships of the three taxa. Expand
Phylogeny of the bears (Ursidae) based on nuclear and mitochondrial genes.
TLDR
Two nuclear single-copy gene segments from gene encoding interphotoreceptor retinoid binding protein and the complete intron 1 from transthyretin gene are employed, in conjunction with previously published mt data, to clarify the taxomic classification and phylogenetic relationships within the bear family. Expand
Phylogeny of the Carnivora (Mammalia): congruence vs incompatibility among multiple data sets.
TLDR
Conditional data combination analyses of the four independent data sets indicate that the phylogenetic results derived from each generally agree, with two exceptions, and demonstrates that while a CDC method may reject the null hypothesis of homogeneity for a particular partition, including that partition in combined analyses, may nevertheless provide an overall increase in phylogenetic signal. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships within mammalian order Carnivora indicated by sequences of two nuclear DNA genes.
TLDR
The utilities of these two gene segments for the phylogenetic analyses were found to be fairly informative for higher-group associations within the order Carnivora, but not for those of low level divergence at the species level. Expand
Inconsistency of biochemical evolutionary rates affecting allozyme divergence within the genus Apodemus (Muridae: Mammalia)
TLDR
As demonstrated by comparison of two fundamentally different methods for estimating divergence times, this result can be explained by a rapid separation of the genera in question during extensive adaptive radiation and use of both numerical and cladistic approaches for the evaluation of phylogenies is emphasized. Expand
Molecular distance and divergence time in carnivores and primates.
TLDR
The results suggest that estimates of molecular distance and divergence time are highly correlated and that rates of molecular evolution are not constant; rather, in general they decline with increasing divergence time in a linear fashion. Expand
Allozyme evolution and the molecular clock in the Lagomorpha
TLDR
A temporal acceleration of the rate of allozyme evolution in the Leporidae due to rapid adaptive radiation of biochemically highly polymorphic taxa is suggested. Expand

A molecular phylogeny of the hominoid primates as indicated by two-dimensional protein electrophoresis.
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny for the hominoid primates was constructed by using genetic distances from a survey of 383 radiolabeled fibroblast polypeptides resolved by two-dimensional electrophoresis (2DE), appearing to resolve the human-chimpanzee-gorilla trichotomy in favor of a more recent association of chimpanzees and humans.

A molecular solution to the riddle of the giant panda's phylogeny
Although it is generally agreed that the giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) is a member of the order Carn­vora, there has long been disagreement over whether it should be classified with bears,Expand

TLDR
2-DGE is used to compare an average of 189 polypeptides between six species of wild mice representing levels of evolutionary divergence ranging from different subspecies to different families and support the use of the simpler SGE techniques to estimate relative levels of genetic divergence. Expand
A comparative chromosome banding analysis of the Ursidae and their relationship to other carnivores.
TLDR
A comprehensive analysis of the homologous banding patterns within the Ursidae and with a hypothesized ancestral carnivore karyotype permitted the reconstruction of three significant chromosomal reorganization events that occurred during the evolution of the modern ursids. Expand
DISTANCE METHODS FOR INFERRING PHYLOGENIES: A JUSTIFICATION
  • J. Felsenstein
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1984
TLDR
All phylogenetic distance methods consider that there is a perfect fit of a tree to the data if all of the observed distances are sums of the lengths of the intervening branches of the tree. Expand
Pinniped origins and the rate of evolution of carnivore albumins.
  • V. Sarich
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Systematic zoology
  • 1969
TLDR
Data resulting from an immunological study of relationships among fissiped and pinniped albumins show that albumin evolution has occurred in a regular fashion in these taxa, which allows the conclusion that the pinnipeds share much more recent common ancestry with the canoids than either group does with the feloids.

Estimating Phylogenetic Trees from Distance Matrices
TLDR
The distance Wagner procedure is applicable to data matrices of immunological distance, such as that of Sarich (1969a), in which between-OTU comparisons are evaluated but for which no attributes of the OTUs themselves are directly observable. Expand

The aggregate of biological features shows that the giant panda should occupy a special position in the Arctoidea and should be placed in a monotypie family of its own, Ailuropodidae. Expand
Human lymphocyte polymorphisms detected by quantitative two-dimensional electrophoresis.
TLDR
The newly described polymorphisms and others which should be detectable in larger protein surveys with two-dimensional electrophoresis hold promise as genetic markers of the human genome for use in gene mapping and pedigree analyses. Expand

TLDR
If enough data are available, genetic distance between any pair of organisms can be measured in terms of D, and this measure is applicable to any kind of organism without regard to ploidy or mating scheme. Expand
