Forty-nine complete 12S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene sequences from a diverse assortment of mammals (one monotreme, 11 marsupials, 37 placentals), including 11 new sequences, were employed to establish a “core” secondary structure model for mammalian 12S rRNA. Base-pairing interactions were assessed according to the criteria of potential base-pairing as well as evidence for base-pairing in the form of compensatory mutations. In cases where compensatory evidence was not available among mammalian… Expand
The Secondary Structure of Mammalian Mitochondrial 16S rRNA Molecules: Refinements Based on a Comparative Phylogenetic Approach
TLDR
This work uses the criteria of potential base-pairing and positional covariance to make refinements in these models for mammalian 16S rRNA molecules, and suggests a mammalian secondary structure model with deletions as well as additions to the Gutell et al. (1993) and De Rijk (1999) models for cow. Expand
Towards an assessment of character interdependence in avian RNA phylogenetics: a general secondary structure model for the avian mitochondrial 16S rRNA.
TLDR
The power of RNA genes as sources of phylogenetic information derives from their heterogeneous rates of evolution in different structural regions, which have the potential to resolve both recent and early phylogenetic events. Expand
Models of the Primary and Secondary Structure for the 12S rRNA of Birds: A Guideline for Sequence Alignment
Models of the primary and secondary structure for the 12S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene of birds is presented based on a comparison of 100 species. Preliminary higher-order structures were delimitedExpand
Variation patterns of the mitochondrial 16S rRNA gene with secondary structure constraints and their application to phylogeny of cyprinine fishes (Teleostei: Cypriniformes).
TLDR
Comparisons of the parsimony and Bayesian analyses and results of variable length bootstrap analysis indicates that the mitochondrial 16S rRNA gene should contain important character variation to recover well-supported phylogeny of cyprinid taxa whose divergences occurred within the recent 8 MY, but could not provide resolution power for deep phylogenies spanning 10-19 MYA.

Structure-based methods for the phylogenetic analysis of ribosomal RNA molecules
TLDR
This dissertation elucidate the structure of several rRNAs by analyzing multiply aligned sequences for basepair covariation and conserved higher order structural motifs and describes a novel means for characterizing regions of alignment ambiguity that improves methods for retaining phylogenetic information without violating nucleotide positional homology.

Comparative Sequence Analysis of the Non-Protein-Coding Mitochondrial DNA of Inbred Rat Strains
TLDR
It is proposed that some of the variable nucleotide positions identified in 16S rRNA and tRNA-Cys, and the D-loop might be important for mitochondrial function and its regulation. Expand
Structure and variation of the mitochondrial genome of fishes
TLDR
Through a large-scale comparative analysis of 250 fish species mt genomes, various structural aspects of the fish mt genome and the encoded genes were elucidated and the significance of extensive comparisons for understanding the structure of the mt genome was demonstrated. Expand
A secondary structural model of the 28S rRNA expansion segments D2 and D3 for Chalcidoid wasps (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea).
TLDR
An annotated secondary structural model for the D2, D3 expansion segments of the 28S ribosomal (rRNA)-encoding gene region will prove useful in assigning positional nucleotide homology for phylogeny reconstruction in these and closely related apocritan taxa. Expand
Evidence for adaptive selection acting on the tRNA and rRNA genes of human mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
A significant portion of ancient tRNA and rRNA polymorphisms appear to have been adaptive, and these are affecting human health today. Expand

TLDR
A customized three-state general time-reversible DNA substitution model is developed, implemented in the PHASE phylogenetic inference package, which lumps C and T into a composite pyrimidine state and is compared with recent studies using large sets of nuclear genes. Expand

This analysis indicates that characters from both base-pairing regions (stems) and non-base-paired regions (loops) contain phylogenetic information, as judged by the level of support of the phylogenetic results compared with a well-established tree based on both morphological and molecular data.

The complexity of structure and the evolutionary dimension of these structures presents a wonderful opportunity to investigate RNA structural motifs and map with some precision, the evolution of these RNAs and underlying RNA structural characteristics associated with different phylogenetic assemblages.

It is safe to assert that all of the standard secondary-structure elements in (prokaryotic) rRNAs have been identified, with approximately 90% of the individual base pairs in each molecule having independent comparative support, and that at least some of the tertiary interactions have been revealed.
