The establishment of the photosynthetic organelle (plastid) in eukaryotes and the diversification of algae and plants were landmark evolutionary events because these taxa form the base of the food chain for many ecosystems on our planet. The plastid originated via a putative single, ancient primary endosymbiosis in which a heterotrophic protist engulfed and retained a cyanobacterium in its cytoplasm. Once successfully established, this plastid spread into other protist lineages through… Expand

TLDR
The magnitude and potential impact of nucleus-to-nucleus endosymbiotic gene transfer in the evolution of complex algae, and the extent to which such transfers compromise the ability to infer the deep structure of the eukaryotic tree of life is explored. Expand
The Evolution of Algae by Secondary and Tertiary Endosymbiosis
TLDR
This chapter summarizes the known diversity of secondary plastid-bearing algae and provides an overview of the current state of knowledge of how their plastids have evolved and many fundamental questions about the tempo and mode of secondary Plastid diversification remain remain. Expand
Plastid Origin and Evolution
TLDR
Deciphering plastid origin provides general insights into the evolution of eukaryote lineages as well as highlighting key aspects of algal evolution that have decisive impacts on inference of their phylogenetic positions in the tree of life. Expand
Origin, Evolution and Division of Plastids
TLDR
It is shown that the chloroplast division machinery is an evolutionary hybrid, which has retained the activity of several prokaryotically-derived proteins together with components that have evolved from proteins present in the eukaryotic ancestor. Expand
Plastid Origins
The evolution of oxygenic photosynthesis in the ancestors of present-day cyanobacteria transformed the biosphere of our planet (Blankenship 1994; ReyesPrieto et al. 2007). This landmark event wasExpand
The Algal Tree of Life from a Genomics Perspective
TLDR
The approach is to rely on the analysis of ortholog groups identified in recently generated genomic and transcriptomic data to infer the ETOL, rather than using a subset of manually chosen and curated genes. Expand

PRIMARY AND SECONDARY ENDOSYMBIOSIS AND THE ORIGIN OF PLASTIDS
TLDR
The theory of endosymbiosis describes the origin of plastids from cyanobacterial‐like prokaryotes living within eukaryotic host cells, and morphological, biochemical, and molecular studies provide clear evidence of a proKaryotic ancestry for plastid ancestry. Expand

TLDR
The eukaryotic crown group Alveolata has a particularly complex history of plastid acquisition, and may or may not be descended from a single endosymbiotic event. Expand
Photosynthetic eukaryotes unite: endosymbiosis connects the dots.
TLDR
Algal diversity is examined and endosymbiosis is shown to be a major force in algal evolution, with long-standing issues such as the chromalveolate hypothesis and the extent of endOSymbiotic gene transfer clarified. Expand
The single, ancient origin of chromist plastids
TLDR
A taxonomically diverse group of chlorophyll c2-containing protists comprising cryptophyte, haptophyte and stramenopiles algae (Chromista) share a common plastid that most likely arose from a single, ancient secondary endosymbiosis involving a red alga, consistent with Chromista monophyly and implicates secondary endOSymbiotic as an important force in generating eukaryotic biodiversity.

Phylogeny of Calvin cycle enzymes supports Plantae monophyly.
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses suggest that land plants and red algae acquired at least a subset of the CC enzymes via intracellular (endosymbiotic) gene transfer (EGT) from the captured cyanobacterium prior to the divergence of green andRed algae. Expand
A molecular timeline for the origin of photosynthetic eukaryotes.
TLDR
An ancient (late Paleoproterozoic) origin of photosynthetic eukaryotes with the primary endosymbiosis that gave rise to the first alga having occurred after the split of the Plantae from the opisthokonts sometime before 1,558 MYA is supported. Expand
Cyanobacterial Contribution to Algal Nuclear Genomes Is Primarily Limited to Plastid Functions
TLDR
Whether the level of cyanobacterial gene recruitment proposed for Arabidopsis is of the same magnitude in the algal sisters of plants is determined by analyzing expressed-sequence tag (EST) data from the glaucophyte alga Cyanophora paradoxa. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that the periplastid membrane (PPM, the former algal plasma membrane) of chromalveolates, and possibly chlorarachneans, grows by fusion of vesicles emanating from the NM envelope or PPR, which is a potentially novel target for drugs against alveolate Sporozoa such as malaria parasites and Toxoplasma.

TLDR
Analysis of all possible pair-wise comparisons among the three plastids and mitochondrion indicate that genomic similarities are most consistent with convergent evolution due to constraints on gene loss, rather than with hypothesized shared evolutionary histories. Expand
