Rodentia is the largest order of placental mammals, with approximately 2,050 species divided into 28 families. It is also one of the most controversial with respect to its monophyly, relationships between families, and divergence dates. Here, we have analyzed and compared the performance of three nuclear genes (von Willebrand Factor, interphotoreceptor retinoid-binding protein, and Alpha 2B adrenergic receptor) for a large taxonomic sampling, covering the whole rodent and placental diversity… Expand
Multigene phylogeny of the Old World mice, Murinae, reveals distinct geographic lineages and the declining utility of mitochondrial genes compared to nuclear genes.
TLDR
The first cladistic analysis sampling multiple representatives of most major groups based on DNA sequence for three nuclear and one mitochondrial fragments suggests that nuclear genes may be more useful even for relatively recent divergences (< 10MYA). Expand
Rodent phylogeny revised: analysis of six nuclear genes from all major rodent clades
TLDR
The findings suggest that the uncertainty regarding the position of the rodent root reflects the rapid rodent radiation that occurred in the Paleocene rather than the presence of conflicting phylogenetic and non-phylogenetic signals in the dataset. Expand
Phylogeny and divergence-date estimates of rapid radiations in muroid rodents based on multiple nuclear genes.
TLDR
A phylogenetic study comprising 53 genera sequenced for four nuclear genes, GHR, BRCA1, RAG1, and c-myc, totaling up to 6400 nucleotides presents a revised classification for this largest but most unsettled mammalian superfamily. Expand
The Relationships of Major Lineages within Peromyscine Rodents: A Molecular Phylogenetic Hypothesis and Systematic Reappraisal
TLDR
A new phylogenetic hypothesis based on combined mitochondrial and nuclear sequences using cytochrome b, interphotoreceptor retinoid-binding protein, and growth hormone receptor gene sequences is presented, which recovers a congruent, well-resolved phylogeny among peromyscine rodents. Expand
Phylogeny of the order rodentia inferred from structural analysis of short retroposon B1
TLDR
A large-scale study of short retroposon (SINE) B1 has been conducted in the genome of rodents from most of the known families, indicating an early divergence of Sciuridae and related families from the other rodents and a monophyletic origin of the group formed by the remaining families. Expand
Rodent evolution: back to the root.
TLDR
Lineage sorting or a more complex evolutionary scenario that includes an early divergence of the Squirrel-related ancestor and a subsequent hybridization of the latter and the Ctenohystrica lineage best explains such apparently contradictory insertions. Expand
Housekeeping genes for phylogenetic analysis of eutherian relationships.
TLDR
The analyses of the currently established sequences have helped examination of problematic parts in the eutherian tree at the same time as they caution against suggestions that have claimed that basal eutheria relationships have been conclusively settled. Expand
Identifying conflicting signal in a multigene analysis reveals a highly resolved tree: the phylogeny of Rodentia (Mammalia).

TLDR
This analysis provides, for the first time in a study of rodent phylogeny, robust statistical support for every bipartition, with just one exception. Expand
Revisiting the Glires concept--phylogenetic analysis of nuclear sequences.
TLDR
The Glires hypothesis was rejected by this study because analysis of the nuclear data strongly supported the phylogenetic tree (frog, chicken, rat, mouse, (rabbit, (human, (cattle, dog))))), while the mt data could not conclusively resolve the position of rabbit relative to that of human. Expand
A glimpse on the pattern of rodent diversification: a phylogenetic approach
TLDR
The results show that rodents experienced shifts in diversification rate regularly through the Tertiary, but at different periods for each clade, and suggest that extinction led to the loss of diversification signal for most of the Paleogene nodes. Expand

Phylogeny of rodentia (Mammalia) inferred from the nuclear-encoded gene IRBP.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among 22 species of rodents were investigated by use of a 1.2-kb region from exon 1 of the single-copy nuclear gene IRBP, which allowed inclusion of 50 outgroup species, representing every eutherian order plus seven marsupials. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics and the origins of placental mammals
TLDR
The potential weaknesses of limited character and taxon sampling are addressed in a comprehensive molecular phylogenetic analysis of 64 species sampled across all extant orders of placental mammals, providing new insight into the pattern of the early placental mammal radiation. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and divergence time estimates for major rodent groups: evidence from multiple genes.
TLDR
Exons of growth hormone receptor (GHR) and breast cancer susceptibility (BRCA1) genes were sequenced for a wide diversity of rodents and other mammals and sequences of the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene and previously published sequences of von Willebrand factor were combined to support monophyly. Expand
Parallel adaptive radiations in two major clades of placental mammals
TLDR
Two independent molecular data sets, having aligned lengths of DNA of 5,708 and 2,947 base pairs, respectively, are analysed for all orders of placental mammals to resolve placental orders into four groups: Xenarthra, Afrotheria, Laurasiatheria, and Euarchonta plus Glires. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of rodents, with special emphasis on murids: evidence from nuclear gene LCAT.
TLDR
Evidence from LCAT sequences agrees with that from a number of previous molecular and morphological studies, both concerning branching orders inside Muroidea and the bush-like radiation of rodent suprafamilial taxa, thus suggesting that this nuclear gene is an appropriate candidate for addressing questions of rodents relationships. Expand
Molecular evolution of the nuclear von Willebrand factor gene in mammals and the phylogeny of rodents.
TLDR
The aim of this study was to test if inclusion of an increased taxonomic diversity in molecular analyses would shed light on three uncertainties concerning rodent phylogeny, and to obtain a robust answer to the question of Rodentia monophyly. Expand
Interordinal relationships and timescale of eutherian evolution as inferred from mitochondrial genome data.
TLDR
The monophyly of Rodentia, the Lagomorpha/Rodentia clade, and the Afrotheria/Xenarthra clade were preferred over alternative relationships, but the supports of these clades were not strong enough to exclude other possibilities. Expand
Evidence on mammalian phylogeny from sequences of exon 28 of the von Willebrand factor gene.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among 27 extant mammalian species were studied using sequences of exon 28 of the gene encoding von Willebrand Factor (vWF), a glycoprotein which functions in blood clotting to provide strong support for the monophyly of both bats and rodents. Expand
Variance of molecular datings, evolution of rodents and the phylogenetic affinities between Ctenodactylidae and Hystricognathi
TLDR
The von Willebrand factor (vWF) gene has been used to understand the origin and timing of Rodentia evolution in the context of placental phylogeny and three main conclusions are drawn from the study of this nuclear exon. Expand
Endemic African mammals shake the phylogenetic tree
TLDR
DNA sequences from three mitochondrial genes and two nuclear genes are analysed to examine relationships of insectivores to other mammals and suggest that there was an extensive African radiation from a single common ancestor that gave rise to ecologically divergent adaptive types. Expand
