SummaryThe living hominoid primates are Man, the chimpanzees, the Gorilla, the Orangutan, and the gibbons. The cercopithecoids (Old World monkeys) are the sister group of the hominoids. The composition of the Hominoidea is not in dispute, but a consensus has not yet been reached concerning the phylogenetic branching pattern and the dating of divergence nodes. We have compared the single-copy nuclear DNA sequences of the hominoid genera using DNA-DNA hybridization to produce a complete matrix of… Expand
DNA hybridization evidence of hominoid phylogeny: Results from an expanded data set
TLDR
An expanded data set totaling 514 DNA hybrids supports the branching order given above for the phylogeny of the hominoids, and the possible effects of differences in age at first breeding are discussed. Expand
DNA hybridization evidence of hominoid phylogeny: A reanalysis of the data
TLDR
A reanalysis of the Sibley and Ahlquist data is presented, including a description of the corrections applied to the “raw counts”, to indicate that Pan is genetically closer to Homo than toGorilla, but that Gorilla may be genetically close toPan than toHomo. Expand
Primate evolution at the DNA level and a classification of hominoids
TLDR
The genetic distances among primate lineages estimated from orthologous noncoding nucleotide sequences of β-type globin loci and their flanking and intergenic DNA agree closely with the distances estimated by cross hybridization of total genomic single-copy DNAs. Expand
Man's place in hominoidea revealed by mitochondrial DNA genealogy
SummaryMolecular biology has resurrected C. Darwin and T.H. Huxley's question about the origin of humans, but the precise branching pattern and dating remain controversial. To settle this issue, aExpand
Man's place in Hominoidea as inferred from molecular clocks of DNA
TLDR
The ratio of the dates of orangutan splitting to chimpanzee is larger for the mtDNA clock than that for the η-globin clock, suggesting the possibilities of mt-DNA introgression among the early hominids and the early African apes, and/or of mtDNA polymorphism within the common ancestral species of Orangutan and the African apes that obscures the date of the true species separation ofOrangutans.

Evolution of the second orangutan: phylogeny and biogeography of hominid origins
Aim To resolve the phylogeny of humans and their fossil relatives (collectively, hominids), orangutans (Pongo) and various Miocene great apes and to present a biogeographical model for theirExpand
Analysis of GC-rich repetitive nucleotide sequences in great apes
TLDR
In the chimpanzee and gorilla, as in man, βSat sequences showed a 68-bp Sau3A periodicity and were preferentially organized in large clusters, whereas in the orangutan, they were organized in DNA fragments of 550 bp, which did not seem to be characterized by a tandem organization. Expand
Improved dating of the human/chimpanzee separation in the mitochondrial DNA tree: Heterogeneity among amino acid sites
TLDR
This analysis suggests that humans separated from chimpanzees some 4–5 Myr ago, and the variable-invariable model for site heterogeneity fits the amino acid sequence data encoded by the mitochondrial DNA from Hominoidea remarkably well. Expand
Dating of the human-ape splitting by a molecular clock of mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
A new statistical method for estimating divergence dates of species from DNA sequence data by a molecular clock approach is developed, and this dating may pose a problem for the widely believed hypothesis that the bipedal creatureAustralopithecus afarensis, which lived some 3.7 million years ago, was ancestral to man and evolved after the human-ape splitting.

Mitochondrial DNA evolution in primates: Transition rate has been extremely low in the lemur
TLDR
It appears that the transition rate of mtDNA evolution in the lemur has been extremely low, only about 1/10 that in other primate lines, whereas the transversion rate does not differ significantly from that of other primates. Expand

Examination of hominid evolution by DNA sequence homology
TLDR
The results indicate that chimpanzee and gorilla are cladistically closer to Man than to orangutan and other primates, and that gorilla DNA may have diverged slightly more from the ancestral state than chimpanzee or human DNA. Expand
Evidence on human origins from haemoglobins of African apes
TLDR
R rigorously determined α- and β-haemoglobin amino acid sequences not only of chimpanzee and Gorilla gorilla but also pygmy chimpanzee (Pan paniscus) are reported, which favour the explanation of decelerated evolution and point to selection preserving perfected haemoglobin molecules. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA sequences of primates: Tempo and mode of evolution
TLDR
Genealogical analysis of the sequence differences supports the view that the human lineage branched off only slightly before the gorilla and chimpanzee lineages diverged and strengthens the hypothesis that humans are more related to gorillas and chimpanzees than is the orangutan. Expand
Evolutionary tree for apes and humans based on cleavage maps of mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
Although this study has given a magnified view of the genetic differences among humans and apes, the possibility of a three-way split among the lineages leading to humans, gorillas, and chimpanzees still deserves serious consideration. Expand

Phylogeny was traditionally the subject matter of paleontology and comparative anatomy, but in recent years it has become apparent that proteins and nucleic acids store a wealth of information concerning evolutionary history. Expand

It is shown that concordance exists between the hemoglobin and albumin results and that both support the suggestion that the human lineage diverged from that leading to the African apes far more recently than is generally supposed. Expand
THE RELATIONSHIPS OF THE WRENTIT AS INDICATED BY DNA-DNA HYBRIDIZATION
TLDR
DNA-DNA hy- bridization comparisons between the homologous nucleotide sequences of the single-copy DNAs of the Wrentit and other passerines indicate that Chamaea is most closely related to the babblers and the Old World warblers, and that the latter two groups are ecotypes of a single, varied, monophyletic assemblage.

TLDR
The rate of evolution of the mitochondrial genome appears to exceed that of the single-copy fraction of the nuclear genome by a factor of about 10 and is likely to be an extremely useful molecule to employ for high-resolution analysis of the evolutionary process. Expand

A comparative analysis of high-resolution chromosomes from orangutan, gorilla, chimpanzee, and man suggests that 18 or 23 pairs of chromosomes of modern man are virtually identical to those of the authors' "common hominoid ancestor", with the remaining pairs slightly different. Expand
