Ultrastructural and molecular data have recently so rejuvenated the study of organismic diversity that we may soon have a clear understanding of the overall phylogeny of the living world, and even of the major steps in its diversification. Of these, the transition from the prokaryote to the eukaryote cell is certainly the most profound, ’ so much so that Prokaryota and Eukaryota are now generally ranked as superkingdoms (TABLE 1). To explain the origin of the eukaryote cell one has to determine… Expand
Reconciling Asgardarchaeota Phylogenetic Proximity to Eukaryotes and Planctomycetes Cellular Features in the Evolution of Life
  • D. Devos

  • Molecular biology and evolution
  • 2021
TLDR
The single-domain model is better suited to explain the origin and evolution of all three domains of life, blurring the distinctions between them and solves most of the ambiguities associated with the ones based on two ancestral domains. Expand
The asgardarchaeal-unique contribution to protein families of the eukaryotic common ancestor was 0.3%
TLDR
Genomic and in particular cellular complexity remains a eukaryote-specific feature and is best understood as the archaeal host’s solution to housing an endosymbiont and not as a preparation for obtaining one. Expand
Endosymbiotic theories for eukaryote origin
TLDR
A survey of endosymbiotic theories for theorigin of eukaryotes and mitochondria, and for the origin of the eukARYotic nucleus, summarizing the essentials of each and contrasting some of their predictions to the observations is compiled. Expand
The Natural Evolutionary Relationships among Prokaryotes
  • R. Gupta

  • 2000
TLDR
It is shown that the main eubacterial phyla are related to each other linearly rather than in a tree-like manner, suggesting that the major evolutionary changes within prokaryotes (bacteria) have occurred in a directional manner. Expand
A New Aspect to the Origin and Evolution of Eukaryotes
TLDR
This paper suggests, based on the energetic aspect of genome organization, that the emergence of eukaryotes was promoted by the establishment of an efficient energy-converting organelle, such as the mitochondrion, which was acquired by the endosymbiosis of ancient α-purple photosynthetic Gram-negative eubacteria that reorganized the prokaryotic metabolism of the archaebacterial-like ancestral host cells.

The phagotrophic origin of eukaryotes and phylogenetic classification of Protozoa.
  • T. Cavalier-smith
  • Biology, Medicine
  • International journal of systematic and evolutionary microbiology
  • 2002
TLDR
It is argued that the essentially autogenous origins of most eukaryotic cell properties (phagotrophy, endomembrane system including peroxisomes, cytoskeleton, nucleus, mitosis and sex) partially overlapped and were synergistic with the symbiogenetic origin of mitochondria from an alpha-proteobacterium. Expand
An ectosymbiosis-based mechanism of eukaryogenesis
TLDR
The high frequencies of top similarity bitscores displayed by Giardia, Edhazardia and Trichomonas toward Aciduliprofundum boonei (Abo) pertaining to the enzymes of DNA biology, far surpassing the frequencies toward any Asgard or TACK archaeon, established Abo as the source of these enzymes in eukaryotes, and the archaeal parent of Eukarya. Expand
The Asgard Archaeal-Unique Contribution to Protein Families of the Eukaryotic Common Ancestor Was 0.3%
TLDR
Genomic and cellular complexity remains a eukaryote-specific feature and is best understood as the archaeal host’s solution to housing an endosymbiont. Expand
Evolution of Archaebacteria: Phylogenetic Relationships Among Archaebacteria, Eubacteria, and Eukaryotes
TLDR
Using pairs of duplicated genes, elongation factors Tu and G and the catalytic and noncatalytic subunits of ATPase, a composite phylogenetic tree is inferred from which the evolutionary relationship among the urkingdoms is determined uniquely. Expand
Evolutionary relationship of archaebacteria, eubacteria, and eukaryotes inferred from phylogenetic trees of duplicated genes.
TLDR
A composite phylogenetic tree with two clusters corresponding to different proteins, from which the evolutionary relationship of the primary kingdoms is determined uniquely is proposed, revealing that archaebacteria are more closely related to eukaryotes than to eubacteria for all the cases. Expand

Archaebacteria and Cellular Origins: An Overview
TLDR
The existence of archaebacteria provides a new and powerful perspective on the origin of the eucaryotic cell, and the conventional endosymbiotic model for eucARYotic origins is no longer a sufficient explanation. Expand
Archaebacteria and the origin of the eukaryotic cytoplasm.
TLDR
The recognition of a third urkingdom of life, the archaebacteria, resulted in the division of the prokaryotic domain, and they appear to be as isolated from each other as from the rest of the kingdom. Expand
Protozoa as Hosts for Endosymbioses and the Conversion of Symbionts into Organelles1,2
TLDR
The ways by which (present-day) chloroplasts and mitochondria may have been derived from early endosymbionts are discussed: a single ancestral cyanobacterium, in the first case, and asingle ancestral purple-nonsulfur bacterium,In this paper, numerous foraminifera appear to have characteristics making them very favorable as hosts for certain algae.

The Archaebacteria and eukaryotic origins
TLDR
This work presents an alternative view, that the Archaebacteria were derived from other bacteria and contain the ancestor of a cell which engulfed others, eventually to become the first eukaryote. Expand
Eukaryote kingdoms: seven or nine?
TLDR
It is suggested that the best one for general scientific use is a system of seven kingdoms in which the Eufungi and Ciliofungi become subkingdoms of the Kingdom Fungi, and the Cryptophyta andChromophyta subkingdom of th Kingdom Chromista. Expand

TLDR
The data indicate that together the eubacteria and the halobacteria form a monophyletic group for which the name "photocytes" is proposed, and if other techniques of phylogenetic analysis confirm this evolutionary tree, it is proposed that the photocytes be given urkingdom status. Expand
An intron in the 23S ribosomal RNA gene of the archaebacterium Desulfurococcus mobilis
TLDR
The first evidence for the occurrence of an intron within any prokaryotic ribosomal RNA was found within the 23S rRNA gene of the sulphur-dependent and anaerobic Thermoproteale Desulfurococcus mobilis, which was isolated from hot acidic springs in Iceland at temperatures up to 97°C. Expand
A phylogenetic definition of the major eubacterial taxa.
TLDR
Through oligonucleotide signature analysis of 16S ribosomal RNAs, it is possible to define ten major groups of eubacteria that are appropriately termed eubacterial Phyla or Divisions. Expand
