ABSTRACT The small‐subunit rRNA sequence of a species of Amoebophrya infecting Gymnodinium sanguineum in Chesapeake Bay was obtained and compared to the small subunit rRNA sequences of other protists. Phylogenetic trees constructed with the new sequence place Amoebophrya between the remaining dinoflagellates and other protists. 
Multiple Strains of the Parasitic Dinoflagellate Amoebophrya Exist in Chesapeake Bay
Abstract Small subunit rRNA sequences were amplified from Amoebophrya strains infecting Karlodinium micrum, Gymnodinium instriatum and an unidentified Scrippsiella species in Chesapeake Bay. TheExpand
Phylogenetic Relationships among Diverse Dinoflagellate Species Occurring in Coastal Waters off Korea Inferred from Large Subunit Ribosomal DNA Sequence Data
We analyzed the nuclear-encoded large subunit ribosomal RNA gene (LSU rDNA) sequences of 19 dinoflagellates occurring in costal waters off Korea and reconstructed a phylogenetic tree containing 74Expand
Genetic Diversity of Parasitic Dinoflagellates in the Genus Amoebophrya and Its Relationship to Parasite Biology and Biogeography
TLDR
The results imply that genetic diversity in Amoebophrya strains does not always reflect parasite biology or biogeography, and host specificity varied from moderately to extremely species‐specific within groups, including Group II. Expand
INFECTION OF PROROCENTRUM MINIMUM (DINOPHYCEAE) BY THE PARASITE AMOEBOPHRYA SP. (DINOFLAGELLEA)
TLDR
The parasite was observed live, both within its deformed host as a trophont and outside its host, either as a swimming mass of flagellated cells, the vermiform, or as individual sporonts. Expand
Multiple species of the dinophagous dinoflagellate genus Amoebophrya infect the same host species.
TLDR
The results indicate that D. norvegica is released from one parasite when entering the Baltic Sea, and become less infected by an alternative parasite species, indicating that the hosts have not evolved independently. Expand
Phylogenetic position of the copepod-infesting parasite Syndinium turbo (Dinoflagellata, Syndinea).
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses placed Syndinium as a sister taxon to the blue crab parasite Hematodinium sp. Expand
Expressed Sequence Tags from Amoebophrya sp. Infecting Karlodinium veneficum: Comparing Host and Parasite Sequences
ABSTRACT. Parasitic dinoflagellates of the genus Amoebophrya play important roles in the ecology of estuaries and open ocean environments. Little is known of the cell and molecular biology ofExpand
Solenicola setigera is the first characterized member of the abundant and cosmopolitan uncultured marine stramenopile group MAST-3.
TLDR
It is shown that Solenicola setigera, a distinctive widespread colonial marine protist, is a member of the environmental clade MArine STramenopile 3 (MAST-3), the first identified member of this abundant marine clade and the name Solenicolida is proposed for the Mast-3 phylogenetic group. Expand
Molecular Diversity of the Syndinean Genus Euduboscquella Based on Single-Cell PCR Analysis
TLDR
Comparisons between host and parasite phylogenies do not suggest a simple pattern of host or parasite specificity, and the genus Euduboscquella consistently formed a supported monophyletic clade within a single subclade of group I sequences. Expand
EARLY EVOLUTIONARY HISTORY OF DINOFLAGELLATES AND APICOMPLEXANS (ALVEOLATA) AS INFERRED FROM HSP90 AND ACTIN PHYLOGENIES 1
TLDR
This work addressed the earliest stages of alveolate evolution by sequencing heat shock protein 90 genes from several ciliates, apicomplexans, and dinoflagellates, including key species thought to represent early diverging lineages: Oxyrrhis marina, Perkinsus marinus, Cryptosporidium parvum, and the eugregarine Monocystis agilis.

Small-subunit ribosomal RNA sequences from selected dinoflagellates: testing classical evolutionary hypotheses with molecular systematic methods
TLDR
A number of molecular phylogenies have emerged that challenge the more traditional perspectives of dinoflagellates classification and phylogeny and are presented with comparative reference to the long-standing traditional views. Expand

TLDR
Surprisingly, small ribosomal subunit RNA diversity within the genus Symbiodinium is comparable to that observed among different orders of nonsymbiotic dinoflagellates and reinforces the conclusion that Symbiod inium-like zooxanthellae represent a collection of distinct species. Expand
ANALYSIS OF ALEXANDRIUM (DINOPHYCEAE) SPECIES USING SEQUENCES OF THE 5.8S RIBOSOMAL DNA AND INTERNAL TRANSCRIBED SPACER REGIONS 1
TLDR
Sequence comparisons revealed seven divergent “ITS types” designated as follows: 1) catenella type, 2) tamarense type, 3) WKS‐1 type, 4) Thai type, 5) affine type, 6) insuetum type, and 7) pseudogonyaulax type. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of symbiotic dinoflagellates from planktonic foraminifera and radiolaria.
TLDR
Although the dinoflagellate symbionts of foraminifera appear to be a sister taxon of the Symbiodinium clade, the symbiont of radiolaria are distinct and arose from an independent lineage of dinof lagellates that shares common ancestry with the symbions of at least one pelagic metazoan, suggesting that coevolution of host and symbionT has not occurred.

Occurrence of the Parasitic Dinoflagellate Amoebophrya ceratii in Chesapeake Bay Populations of Gymnodinium sanguineum
TLDR
Parasitism by A. ceratii does not appear to be a major factor regulating G. sanguineum bloom in the main stem of Chesapeake Bay, and integrated station values for parasite prevalence were low. Expand
Phylogeny of Trichomonads Inferred from Small‐Subunit rRNA Sequences
TLDR
Molecular trees inferred by distance, parsimony and likelihood techniques consistently show the Devescovinidae and Calonymphidae are the earliest diverging lineages within the Trichomonadida, however bootstrap values do not strongly support a particular branching order. Expand
SMALL‐SUBUNIT RIBOSOMAL DNA SEQUENCE ANALYSES AND A RECONSTRUCTION OF THE INFERRED PHYLOGENY AMONG SYMBIOTIC DINOFLAGELLATES (PYRROPHYTA) 1
TLDR
The inferred “across Kingdom” phylogeny reemphasizes previous reports that show that the dinoflagellates, the apicomplexans, and the ciliates share a common ancestry and that the dinerates are distantly related to the chromophyte‐oömycete lineage, and supports the concept of a polyphyletic origin of dinof lagellate‐invertebrate symbioses. Expand
Parasitism of photosynthetic dinoflagellates in a shallow subestuary of Chesapeake Bay, USA
TLDR
Estimates for parasite induced mortality indicate that A. ceratii is capable of removing a significant fraction of dinoflagellate biomass, with epidemics in the upper estuary cropping up to 54 % of the dominant bloom-forming species, G. uncatenum, daily, but epidemics were usually geographically restricted and of short duration.
