Alpha and beta-tubulin genes from Chlorarachnion and an alpha-tubulin gene from Cercomonas have been characterised. We found the Cercomonas and Chlorarachnion alpha tubulins to be closely related to one another, confirming the proposed relationship of these genera. In addition, the Chlorarachnion host and Cercomonas also appear to be more distantly related to Heterolobosea, Euglenozoa, chlorophytes, heterokonts, and alveolates. Chlorarachnion was also found to have two distinctly different… CONTINUE READING
