Through direct sequencing methods, the mitochondrial gene for cytochrome oxidase subunit two (CO II) and the single-copy nuclear gene for calmodulin were compared among strains of Caenorhabidits elegans and two other Caenorhabditis species (C. remanei and C. briggsae). In addition the CO II sequence was determined from a distantly related nematode, Steinernema intermedii. Among the 11 strains of C. elegans tested, there are four types of CO II gene, arising from two major lineages. Levels of… CONTINUE READING
