Comparative Genome Analysis Reveals Cis-Regulatory Elements on Gene-Sized Chromosomes of Ciliated Protists
Comparative genomic analyses reveal novel insights into the biological roles of cis-regulatory elements on gene-sized chromosomes in Pseudokeronopsis ciliates and suggests nanochromosomes in spirotrichs may originated approximately 900 million years ago.
Morphology, Ontogeny, and Molecular Phylogeny of Two Freshwater Species of Deviata (Ciliophora, Hypotrichia) from Southern China
Molecular phylogenetic analyses suggest that the genus Deviata is non‐monophyletic and has a close relationship with Perisincirra paucicirrata.
New contributions to the biodiversity of ciliates (Protozoa, Ciliophora) from Antarctica, including a description of Gastronauta multistriata nov. spec.
The morphology and infraciliature of five ciliates, including one new species, are described using live observations and silver staining to contribute to the understanding of ciliate diversity in this little studied area.


Variation in Macronuclear Genome Content of Three Ciliates with Extensive Chromosomal Fragmentation: A Preliminary Analysis
Evidence of lateral transfer of a bacterial endo‐β‐mannanase gene onto a M. es chromosome and the discovery of a 42‐bp conserved sequence motif within N. ovalis untranslated regions are provided.
Macronuclear Genome Sequence of the Ciliate Tetrahymena thermophila, a Model Eukaryote
The ciliate Tetrahymena thermophila is a model organism for molecular and cellular biology. Like other ciliates, this species has separate germline and soma functions that are embodied by distinct
Sequence features of Oxytricha trifallax (class Spirotrichea) macronuclear telomeric and subtelomeric sequences.
The results confirm a previously reported purine bias in the first approximately 80 nucleotides of the subtelomeric regions, but with this larger data set the authors curiously detected a 10 bp periodicity in the bias.
Widespread distribution of extensive chromosomal fragmentation in ciliates.
Analysis of small-subunit rDNA genealogies indicate that the generation of gene-sized chromosomes is widespread and demonstrate multiple origins of extensive fragmentation within ciliates.
Coding properties of macronuclear DNA molecules in Sterkiella nova (Oxytricha nova).
Results indicate that almost all, if not all, of the -24,500 different molecules encode one or more genes, yielding an estimate of -26,800 genes in the macronucleus of S. nova.
Random Sequencing of Paramecium Somatic DNA
It is demonstrated that a random survey of the somatic genome of Paramecium is a good strategy for gene discovery in this organism and the unrooted tree obtained is very robust and in excellent agreement with accepted topology, providing strong support for the quality and consistency of the data set.
Macronuclear gene-sized molecules of hypotrichs.
No highly conserved promoter sequences nor replication initiation sequences have been identified in the 5' nor in the 3' non-translated regions, suggesting that promoter function in hypotrichs may differ from other eukaryotes.
Toward Sequencing the Tetrahymena Genome: Exploiting the Gift of Nuclear Dimorphism

How the gifts of nuclear dimorphism are being exploited in the experimental analysis of molecular and cell biology is described and Mechanisms present in humans that are either absent in other eukaryotic microbial model systems, or not as readily accessible in them as in Tetrahymena, are especially relevant.
