Chelicerates (scorpions, horseshoe crabs, spiders, mites and ticks) are the second largest group of arthropods and are of immense importance for fundamental and applied science. They occupy a basal phylogenetic position within the phylum Arthropoda, and are of crucial significance for understanding the evolution of various arthropod lineages. Chelicerates are vectors of human diseases, such as ticks, and major agricultural pests, such as spider mites, thus this group is also of importance for… Expand
The embryogenesis of the Tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus: The establishment of a new chelicerate model system
TLDR
The embryonic development of the cattle tick is analyzed to provide fundamental common ground for improving knowledge regarding tick embryonic development, thereby facilitating the establishment of a new chelicerate model system. Expand
The salivary proteome of Tetranychus urticae : Key to its polyphagous nature?
TLDR
The composition of spider mite saliva was investigated using a multidisciplinary approach based on in silico prediction and proteomics analysis, combined with proterosomal expression analysis and confirmation of the salivary origin using whole-mount in situ hybridization, concluding that theSalivary protein complement of T. urticae is key to its polyphagous nature. Expand
The genome of Tetranychus urticae reveals herbivorous pest adaptations
TLDR
The completely sequenced and annotated spider mite genome is presented, representing the first complete chelicerate genome, and finds strong signatures of polyphagy and detoxification in gene families associated with feeding on different hosts and in new gene families acquired by lateral gene transfer.

Metaseiulus occidentalis is a representative of an important family of mites (Arthropoda: Chelicerata: Acari: Phytoseiidae) that are effective predators of pest mites in agricultural crops around theExpand
Acaricide resistance mechanisms in the two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae and other important Acari: a review.
The two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae Koch is one of the economically most important pests in a wide range of outdoor and protected crops worldwide. Its control has been and still isExpand
THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF A MODEL MITE: A REVIEW OF CURRENT KNOWLEDGE ABOUT ARCHEGOZETES LONGISETOSUS (ACARI, ORIBATIDA)
TLDR
In this review, the scientific achievements this lineage has enabled while becoming a model system for general zoology, ecology and evolution are summarized. Expand
The Molecular Evolution of Xenobiotic Metabolism and Resistance in Chelicerate Mites.
TLDR
The study of the two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae, revealed expansions and radiations in all major detoxification gene families, including P450 monooxygenases, carboxyl/cholinesterases, glutathione-S-transferases, and ATP-binding cassette transporters. Expand
Tick genomics: the Ixodes genome project and beyond.
TLDR
This project is the first to sequence the genome of a blood-feeding tick vector of human disease and a member of the subphylum Chelicerata, a group of arthropods including important pests of animals and plants worldwide. Expand
Application of two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae for plant-pest interaction studies.
TLDR
An efficient method for quick and easy collection of a large number of adult female mites, their application on an experimental plant host, and the assessment of the plant damage due to spider mite feeding are described. Expand
Genomic resources and toolkits for developmental study of whip spiders (Amblypygi) provide insights into arachnid genome evolution and antenniform leg patterning
TLDR
The results suggest that Amblypygi share a genome duplication with spiders and scorpions, and set up a framework to study the genetic specification of antenniform legs. Expand

Parthenogenesis in Mites and Ticks (Arachnida: Acari)
TLDR
Current studies of the effects of ploidy level on morphological variation indicate greater character variability in diploid females than in haploid males, and in some species of ticks thelytoky is expressed differentially even on an intraspecific level. Expand
Expression of pair-rule gene homologues in a chelicerate: early patterning of the two-spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae
TLDR
The expression pattern of Tu-pax3/7 lends support to the possibility that a pair-rule patterning mechanism is active in the segmentation pathways of chelicerates. Expand
Sequencing a New Target Genome: The Boophilus microplus (Acari: Ixodidae) Genome Project
TLDR
The purpose of the article is to synergize interest in and provide rationales for sequencing the genome of B. microplus and for publicizing currently available genomic resources for this tick. Expand
Ribosomal DNA phylogeny of the major extant arthropod classes and the evolution of myriapods
TLDR
Using nuclear ribosomal gene sequences for constructing a molecular phylogeny, this work provides strong evidence that the crustaceans and not the myriapods should be considered to be the sister group of the insects. Expand
Deducing the pattern of arthropod phytogeny from mitochondrial DNA rearrangements
THE origins of arthropods and the phylogenetic relationships among their three major living groups (atelocerates, crustaceans and chelicerates) are vigorously contended. To help resolve this, weExpand
Gene silencing in the spider mite Tetranychus urticae: dsRNA and siRNA parental silencing of the Distal-less gene
TLDR
The data suggest that Dll plays a conserved role in appendage formation in arthropods and that such conserved genes can serve as reliable starting points for the development of functional protocols in nonmodel organisms. Expand
Genome size and organization in the blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis and the Southern cattle tick, Boophilus microplus
TLDR
Genome sizes and the organization of repetitive DNA were determined in the hard ticks Ixodes scapularis and Boophilus microplus using reassociation kinetics and are distinct from other arthropods in having a greater proportion of MR, a lower proportion of unique and HR DNA of very low sequence complexity.

TLDR
A microinjection technique has resulted in stable transformation of the western predatory mite Metaseiulus occidentalis, and may improve its efficiency as a biological control agent as well as provide a method for investigating details of its physiology and ecology. Expand
The ecology of Paleozoic terrestrial arthropods: the fossil evidence
TLDR
It is postulated that herbivory, defined as predation on living plants, may have been rare in early Paleozoic terrestrial ecosystems, and that most primary productivity of terrestrial arthropods was diverted into higher trophic levels. Expand
Vasa expression and germ-cell specification in the spider mite Tetranychus urticae
TLDR
The expression pattern of this spider mite vasa homologue implies a novel process acts to specify germ cells in this species and that the specification of germ cells is an evolutionarily labile process. Expand
