Phylogeny of the large extrachromosomal DNA of organisms in the phylum Apicomplexa.

Abstract

Organisms in the phylum Apicomplexa appear to have a large extrachromosomal DNA which is unrelated to the mitochondrial DNA. Based on the apparent gene content of the large (35 kb) extrachromosomal DNA of Plasmodium falciparum, it has been suggested that it is a plastid-like DNA, which may be related to the plastid DNA of rhodophytes. However, phylogenetic… (More)
