Cloning and characterisation of the cytochrome c gene of Aspergillus nidulans
The cytochrome c gene of the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans has been isolated and sequenced and has been shown to be induced approximatly tenfold in the presence of oxygen and three- to fourfold under heatshock conditions.
Fungal cytochrome c genes from plants

Two groups of authors have suggested the existence of two parologous gene families in angiosperms: one which has come to closely resemble fungal sequences, and one which encodes all previously characterized plant cytochrome ¢ proteins.
Molecular evolutionary analysis based on the amino acid sequence of catalase
Heme-containing catalase sequences from 20 different organisms representing prokaryotes, fungi, animals, and plants have been compiled for phylogenetic reconstruction and show that fungal and animal catalases can be derived from one ancestor, whereas bacterialCatalases fail to form a monophyletic group.
Molecular phylogenies of plastid origins and algal evolution
It is shown that the phylogenetic information contained within nucleotide sequences for the chloroplast-encoded gene for the large subunit of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase, integral to photosynthesis, indicates an independent origin for this plastid gene in different plant taxa.
Phylogeny of the α-crystallin-related heat-shock proteins
The inferred phylogeny trees show the plant proteins clearly divided into three major groups that are unrelated to taxonomy: the chloroplast-localized proteins and two groups that originate from a common ancestral plant protein.
Primary Structure of Cytochrome c Gene from the White Root Rot Fungus Rosellinia necatrix
The nucleotide sequence of the cytochrome c (CytC) gene of the white root rot fungus Rosellinia necatrix was analyzed and it seemed that the second intron of the R. neCatrix CytC gene was inserted into its present position after R. ncatrix and its closest relatives diverged evolutionarily.
