The following is a heavily edited transcript of my illustrated lecture, that included our 14 minute video (with a 2 minute animation model) that shows each step in live organisms hypothesized in the origin of nucleated cells from bacteria (“eukaryosis”). New observations presented with modern examples of live phenomena make us virtually certain that B.M. Kozo-Polyansky’s “new principle” (1924) of the importance of symbiogenesis in the evolutionary process of at least 2000 million years of life… Expand
Symbiogenesis and Cell Evolution: An Anti-Darwinian Research Agenda?
In 1905, Constantin S. Mereschkowsky (1855–1921) proposed that the green organelles (chloroplasts) of algae and land plants evolved from ancient, once free-living cyanobacteria. This endosymbioticExpand
Symbiogenesis as a driving force of evolution: The legacy of Boris Kozo-Polyansky
We analyze evolutionary views of Boris Kozo-Polyansky (1890-1957) who was the first who formulated the symbiotic theory of evolution as a concept in his book, Symbiogenesis: A New Principle ofExpand
Symbiogenesis: Beyond the endosymbiosis theory?
TLDR
It is concluded that symbiogenesis is more broadly applicable than just for the endosymbiotic origin of eukaryotes and photosynthetic eUKaryotes, and may be a useful concept to acknowledge the important role of symbiosis for evolutionary innovation. Expand
Symbiosis—Evolution’s Co-Author
TLDR
Symbiotic integration is the acquisition of one organism by another different organism, and through subsequent long-term integration, new structures and metabolism emerge, and is reviewed and redefined on a more meaningful evolutionary context. Expand
Symbiogenesis, History of
TLDR
Symbiogenesis research associates with research on lateral gene transfer, mobile genetic elements, viriome and microbiome studies, and the Gaia Hypothesis, making symbiogenesis one of the candidates for an Extended Synthesis. Expand

Genetic recombinational events in prokaryotes and their viruses: insight into the study of evolution and biodiversity
  • J. Gratia

  • 2017
TLDR
The present review aims at highlighting the diversity of mechanisms with a particular focus on spontaneous zygogenesis (or Z-mating), which was recently discovered in Escherichia coli and resembles gamete fusion in eukaryotes in that it involves complete genetic mixing. Expand
Macroevolution of symbiosis as self-organization of superspecies system controlled by natural selection
TLDR
The colonization of infection threads by rhizobia increases the clonality in their populations that induce the interdeme selection for elevated nitrogenase activity, which resulted in the transition of anodular (rhizospheric, endophytic) plant-microbe associations based on the stimulation of root growth by auxins into nodular symbiosesbased on the effects of nitrogen fixation. Expand
Reticulate evolution : symbiogenesis, lateral gene transfer, hybridization and infectious heredity
TLDR
This book discusses Symbiosis, Divergence-With-Gene-Flow, and a Multiset Model of Multi-Species Evolution to Solve Big Deceptive Problems. Expand

Symbiosis in Cell Evolution: Microbial Communities in the Archean and Proterozoic Eons
TLDR
This book discusses symbiosis as parasexuality, speciation and morphogenesis in the phanerozoic eon plants, animals and chromosomes gaia and the extant biosphere and the mix-match princple. Expand
The last eukaryotic common ancestor (LECA): Acquisition of cytoskeletal motility from aerotolerant spirochetes in the Proterozoic Eon
TLDR
A symbiogenetic concept of the origin of eukaryotic intracellular motility systems from anaerobic but aerotolerant spirochetes in sulfide-rich environments is developed and the ancestors to most protoctists, all fungi, plants, and animals evolved. Expand
Kingdoms & domains : an illustrated guide to the phyla of life on Earth
TLDR
"Kingdoms and Domains" is a unique and indispensable reference for anyone intrigued by a planetary phenomenon: the spectacular diversity of life, both microscopic and macroscopic, as the authors know it only on Earth today. Expand
Symbionticism and the Origin of Species
TLDR
In the field concerned with the intra-nuclear bodies, the chromosomes have attained respectability even in the views of those physiologists who cannot understand such a simple thing as the chromosome theory. Expand
“Imperfections and oddities” in the origin of the nucleus
TLDR
A plausible evolutionary sequence that led from prokaryotes to the origin of the first nucleated cell is outlined and the nucleus is postulated to evolve after the archaebacterium and eubacterium merged to form the symbiotic ancestor of amitochondriate protists. Expand
Identification of the ectosymbiotic bacteria of Mixotricha paradoxa involved in movement symbiosis
TLDR
Mixotricha paradoxa, a trichomonad from the hindgut of the Australian termite Mastotermes darwiniensis Froggatt, is a rare example of a movement symbiosis between eukaryotic and prokaryotic microorganisms that should represent a so far undescribed species. Expand
Spirochete and protist symbionts of a termite (Mastotermes electrodominicus) in Miocene amber
TLDR
The intestinal microbiota of the living termite Mastotermes darwiniensis, a genus now restricted to northern Australia, markedly resembles that preserved in amber, a direct observation of a 20-million-year-old xylophagus termite fossil microbial community. Expand
Spirochete Attachment Ultrastructure: Implications for the Origin and Evolution of Cilia
The fine structure of spirochete attachments to the plasma membrane of anaerobic protists displays variations here interpreted as legacies of an evolutionary sequence analogous to that fromExpand
Spirochete round bodies Syphilis, Lyme disease & AIDS: Resurgence of “the great imitator”?
TLDR
Genome analyses show that in necrotrophic symbioses of humans and other primates, integration of the bionts occurs at the gene product and genetic level, and these observations are supported by a European literature, especially Russian, apparently unknown to American medicine and medical research. Expand
Rediscovery of the nucleolinus, a dynamic RNA-rich organelle associated with the nucleolus, spindle, and centrosomes
TLDR
The nucleolinus is an RNA-rich compartment, closely apposed to or embedded within the nucleolus, that is reported in invertebrate oocytes, mammalian and amphibian epithelial cells, neurons, and several transformed cell lines. Expand
