Safety in numbers: multiple occurrences of highly similar homologs among Azotobacter vinelandii carbohydrate metabolism proteins probably confer adaptive benefits
TLDR
It is shown that large numbers of highly similar synologs among carbohydrate metabolism genes are very rare in bacterial and archaeal genomes, and that the A. vinelandii DJ genome contains an unusually large amount of suchsynologs. Expand
The Evolutionary Origins of Extreme Halophilic Archaeal Lineages
TLDR
A robust taxonomic sampling of Archaeal genomes that spans the Asgardarchaea, TACK Group, euryarchaeota, and the DPANN superphylum is provided, andylogenies derived from these data imply that the highly conserved ATP synthase catalytic/noncatalytic subunits of Nanohaloarchaea share a sisterhood relationship with the Haloarchaea. Expand
Multi fragment melting analysis system (MFMAS) for one-step identification of lactobacilli.
TLDR
In this study, a total of 254 isolates, which were recovered from fermented foods and probiotic supplements, were subjected to MFMAS analysis, and the results were confirmed by a combination of different molecular techniques. Expand
Phage-Phage, Phage-Bacteria, and Phage-Environment Communication
TLDR
In this chapter, phage-associated communication is explored including, particularly, in terms of its impact on phage ecology. Expand
The evolutionary origins of extreme halophilic Archaeal lineages
TLDR
This work presents and evaluates data that argue for and against the monophyly of the DPANN superphylum, in particular, the inclusion of the Nanohaloarchaea in DPANN, and presents a novel gene family distance clustering strategy which shows this sisterhood relationship is not likely the result of a recent gene transfer. Expand
Intrinsic protein disorder reduces small-scale gene duplicability
TLDR
It is shown that, in general, proteins encoded by duplicated genes tend to be less disordered than those encoded by singletons, and that IDRs facilitate retention of duplicates in the context of WGD. Expand
Calcium-dependent Protein Kinases: Understanding Functional Diversification and Specificity of Plant Signalling Hubs Using the Most Conserved Members
TLDR
This chapter discusses the literature review of gene function in plants, which focused on transgenic plants, and the structure of CPKs, a type ofopolymer found inopolymer-like structures found iniary tissue ofiary plants. Expand
Distribution and evolution of the mobile vma-1b intein.
TLDR
It is shown that the vma-1b intein is present in more lineages than previously annotated, including a bacterial lineage, Mahella australiensis 50-1 BON, and evidence is presented, through ancestral character state reconstruction and substitution ratios between host genes and inteins, for several transfers of this Intein between divergent species, including an interdomain transfer between the archaea and bacteria. Expand
Orthologues, Paralogues and Horizontal Gene Transfer in the Human Holobiont
TLDR
The human is considered as a holobiont, a complex ecosystem whose evolutionary fitness is determined by interactions of the host, the symbionts and their interactions, and changes in the number of paralogues in humans reveal genomic regions under selective pressures. Expand
The tree of life: metaphor, model, and heuristic device.
TLDR
As biologists identify more entities and events to describe—including species, organisms, cells, genomes, gene families, extra-chromosomal genetic elements, endosymbioses, hybridizations, recombination types, and lateral gene transfer events—the tree of life strains under the weight of multiple uses and expectations.

Evolution of antibiotic resistance genes: the DNA sequence of a kanamycin resistance gene from Staphylococcus aureus.
TLDR
The kanamycin resistance gene from Staphylococcus aureus has been sequenced and its structure compared with similar genes isolated from Streptomyces fradiae and from two transposons, originally isolated from Klebsiella pneumoniae and Salmonella typhimurium, respectively, suggest that homologous genes of this type be called xenologous. Expand
Evolution of HSP70 gene and its implications regarding relationships between archaebacteria, eubacteria, and eukaryotes
TLDR
Detailed phylogenetic analyses of HSP70 sequence data provide evidence that archaebacteria are not monophyletic and show a close evolutionary linkage with the gram-positive eubacteria, and results do not support the traditionalarchaebacterial tree, where a close relationship between arch aebacterial and eukaryotic homologs is observed. Expand
Evolution of glutamate dehydrogenase genes: Evidence for two paralogous protein families and unusual branching patterns of the archaebacteria in the universal tree of life
TLDR
The results reinforced the previously proposed hypothesis that two close but already different gdh genes were present in the last common ancestor to the three Ur-kingdoms (eubacteria, archaebacteria, and eukaryotes) and questions the firmness of the presently accepted interpretation of previous protein trees. Expand
Cloning and sequencing of the gene encoding glutamine synthetase I from the archaeum Pyrococcus woesei: anomalous phylogenies inferred from analysis of archaeal and bacterial glutamine synthetase I sequences
TLDR
The possibility is presented that the GSI gene arose among the archaea and was then laterally transferred from some early methanogen to a Thermotoga-like organism. Expand
Evolution of the glutamine synthetase gene, one of the oldest existing and functioning genes.
TLDR
It is suggested that GS genes are one of the oldest existing and functioning genes in the history of gene evolution and that GSI genes should also exist in eukaryotes. Expand
Horizontal transfer of ATPase genes--the tree of life becomes a net of life.
TLDR
It is shown that a phylogenetic analysis of these ATPase subunits indicates that this conclusion that both types of ATPases may have been already present in the last common ancestor is premature and that horizontal gene transfer can explain the data. Expand
A DNA fragment homologous to F1‐ATPase β subunit was amplified from genomic DNA of Methanosarcina barkeri Indication of an archaebacterial F‐type ATPase
TLDR
A 490 bp DNA fragment was amplified from Methanosarcina barkeri genomic DNA by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using oligonucleotide primers designed based on conserved amino acid sequences of the F1‐ATPase β subunits, indicating that this archaebacterium has a gene of F‐type ATPase in addition to a genes of V‐ type ATPase.

A model of the early evolution of organisms: The arisal of the three domains of life from the common ancestor
  • (World Scientific,
  • 1992
The nature of the last universal ancestor and the root of the tree of life, still open questions.
TLDR
The last universal ancestor was a member of the DNA world already containing several DNA polymerases and DNA topoisomerases, according to new data on the evolution of DNA metabolizing enzymes and of contradictions between different protein phylogenies. Expand
