Recent phylogenetic analyses using molecular data suggest that hexapods are more closely related to crustaceans than to myriapods, a result that conflicts with long–held morphology–based hypotheses. Here we contribute additional information to this debate by conducting phylogenetic analyses on two nuclear protein–encoding genes, elongation factor–1α (EF–1α) and the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II (Pol II), from an extensive sample of arthropod taxa. Results were obtained from two data sets… 
Bilaterian Phylogeny Based on Analyses of a Region of the Sodium–Potassium ATPase β-Subunit Gene
TLDR
Primers were developed to amplify a 1.3-kb region of the α subunit of the nuclear-encoded sodium–potassium ATPase α-subunit gene from 31 bilaterians representing several phyla to provide new data for deep-level metazoan phylogenetic studies, and ATPase-based trees support monophyly for several clades.
A phylogenetic analysis of Myriapoda (Arthropoda) using two nuclear protein-encoding genes
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses using maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood methods recovered all three represented myriapod classes and all multiply sampled chilopod and diplopod orders, often with high node support.
Phylogenetic analysis of four nuclear protein-encoding genes largely corroborates the traditional classification of Bivalvia (Mollusca).
TLDR
The utility of four nuclear protein-encoding genes-ATP synthase β, elongation factor-1α, myosin heavy chain type II, and RNA polymerase II-for resolving the basal relationships of Bivalvia are evaluated and the stability of the basal tree topology to dataset manipulation is indicative of signal robustness in these four genes.
Phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial protein coding genes confirms the reciprocal paraphyly of Hexapoda and Crustacea
TLDR
The finding of the reciprocal paraphyly of Hexapoda and Crustacea suggests an evolutionary scenario in which the acquisition of the hexapod condition may have occurred several times independently in lineages descending from different crustacean-like ancestors, possibly as a consequence of the process of terrestrialization.
A phylogenetic analysis of Myriapoda ( Arthropoda ) using two nuclear protein-encoding genes
Nucleotide and inferred amino acid sequences from two nuclear protein-encoding genes, elongation factorl a and RNA polymerase 11, were obtained from 34 myriapods and 14 other arthropods to determine
Elongation factor-2: a useful gene for arthropod phylogenetics.
TLDR
Elongation factor-2 is now the second protein-encoding, nuclear gene (in addition to RNA polymerase II) to support Pancrustacea over Atelocerata, and the discrepancy between results derived from molecular and morphological data deserves greater attention.
Phylogenetic Relationships of Basal Hexapods Reconstructed from Nearly Complete 18S and 28S rRNA Gene Sequences
TLDR
This study combined nearly complete 28S and 18S rRNA gene sequences to investigate the phylogenetic relationships of basal hexapods (Protura, Collembola, and Diplura) and yielded consistent results.
Arthropod phylogeny based on eight molecular loci and morphology
TLDR
The optimal ‘total evidence’ cladogram supports the crustacean–hexapod clade, recognizes pycnogonids as sister to other euarthropods, and indicates monophyly of Myriapoda and Mandibulata.
Elongation Factor-2: A Useful Gene for Arthropod Phylogenetics
Robust resolution of controversial higher-level groupings within Arthropoda requires additional sources of characters. Toward this end, elongation factor-2 sequences (1899 nucleotides) were generated
A new view of insect-crustacean relationships II. Inferences from expressed sequence tags and comparisons with neural cladistics.
TLDR
This study presents well-supported phylogenies of diverse arthropod and metazoan outgroup taxa obtained from publicly-available databases, integrating results of molecular phylogenetics and neural cladistics to infer that Branchiopoda evolved simplification from a more elaborate ancestor.

Molecular phylogeny of the major arthropod groups indicates polyphyly of crustaceans and a new hypothesis for the origin of hexapods.
TLDR
A phylogeny of the arthropods was inferred from analyses of amino acid sequences derived from the nuclear genes encoding elongation factor-1 alpha and the largest subunit of RNA polymerase II using maximum-parsimony, neighbor-joining, and maximum-likelihood methods, providing support for a Hexapoda/Branchiopoda clade, thus arguing against the monophyly of the traditionally defined Atelocerata.
Phylogenetic Information Content of Five Nuclear Gene Sequences in Animals: Initial Assessment of Character Sets from Concordance and Divergence Studies
TLDR
An estimate is provided of the time span over which each character set in each gene will prove phylogenetically most informative, and these genes should prove widely useful for systematics.
ARTHROPOD PHYLOGENY: A COMBINED APPROACH
TLDR
Ribosomal and ubiquitin protein coding sequence data are generated from 20 arthropods and five close relatives combined with morphological characters derived from the literature to approach arthropod phylogenetics from the perspective of total evidence.
The phylogenetic status of arthropods, as inferred from 18S rRNA sequences.
TLDR
It is suggested that a previous study's inference of the Arthropoda as paraphyletic may be the result of having two few arthropod taxa available for analysis and including long-branched taxa, and that the evolutionary-parsimony method, like distance and parsimony, may be biased by taxa with long branches.
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.
Molecular Phylogeny of Arthropods and the Significance of the Cambrian “Explosion” for Molecular Systematics
TLDR
Two models are proposed to explain incongruity in the attempt to resolve arthropod phylogeny using the amino acid sequence of elongation factor-1α, which fails to establish relationships among most higher-level groups, although it does recover more recently derived clades.
THE LIMITS OF AMINO ACID SEQUENCE DATA IN ANGIOSPERM PHYLOGENETIC RECONSTRUCTION
  • K. Bremer
  • Biology, Medicine

  • 1988
TLDR
Cladistic analysis of amino acid sequence data, including evaluation of all equally or almost equally parsimonious cladograms, shows that much homoplasy (parallelisms and reversals) is present and that few or no well supported monophyletic groups of families can be demonstrated.
Annelida and Arthropoda are Not Sister Taxa: A Phylogenetic Analysis of Spiralian Metazoan Morphology
TLDR
This study presents a new analysis of 141 independently assembled characters, purported to represent the current state of knowledge of metazoan morphology and embryology, and results in robust support of the Eutrochozoa hypothesis.
Insect-Crustacean Relationships: Insights from Comparative Developmental and Molecular Studies
TLDR
The available morphological evidence is examined and it is suggested that insects could emerge from this crustacean-like ancestor independently from myriapods, and after the major crustACEan radiations.
Patterns of mitochondrial versus nuclear DNA sequence divergence among nymphalid butterflies: the utility of wingless as a source of characters for phylogenetic inference
TLDR
It is suggested that wg will be a useful source of characters for phylogenetic studies of butterflies, and perhaps other insect taxa, with divergence times up to 60 million years ago.
