Cultural Evolution: The continuous developmental process of a culture from simple to complex forms and from homogeneous to heterogeneous qualities.Biological Evolution: The process of cumulative change over successive generations through which organisms acquire their distinguishing morphological and physiological characteristics.Models, Theoretical: Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of systems, processes, or phenomena. They include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.Evolution, Molecular: The process of cumulative change at the level of DNA; RNA; and PROTEINS, over successive generations.Phylogeny: The relationships of groups of organisms as reflected by their genetic makeup.Directed Molecular Evolution: The techniques used to produce molecules exhibiting properties that conform to the demands of the experimenter. These techniques combine methods of generating structural changes with methods of selection. They are also used to examine proposed mechanisms of evolution under in vitro selection conditions.Models, Biological: Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of biological processes or diseases. For disease models in living animals, DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL is available. Biological models include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.Molecular Sequence Data: Descriptions of specific amino acid, carbohydrate, or nucleotide sequences which have appeared in the published literature and/or are deposited in and maintained by databanks such as GENBANK, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), National Biomedical Research Foundation (NBRF), or other sequence repositories.Selection, Genetic: Differential and non-random reproduction of different genotypes, operating to alter the gene frequencies within a population.Amino Acid Sequence: The order of amino acids as they occur in a polypeptide chain. This is referred to as the primary structure of proteins. It is of fundamental importance in determining PROTEIN CONFORMATION.Models, Genetic: Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of genetic processes or phenomena. They include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.Base Sequence: The sequence of PURINES and PYRIMIDINES in nucleic acids and polynucleotides. It is also called nucleotide sequence.Species Specificity: The restriction of a characteristic behavior, anatomical structure or physical system, such as immune response; metabolic response, or gene or gene variant to the members of one species. It refers to that property which differentiates one species from another but it is also used for phylogenetic levels higher or lower than the species.Genetic Variation: Genotypic differences observed among individuals in a population.Sequence Analysis, DNA: A multistage process that includes cloning, physical mapping, subcloning, determination of the DNA SEQUENCE, and information analysis.Sequence Alignment: The arrangement of two or more amino acid or base sequences from an organism or organisms in such a way as to align areas of the sequences sharing common properties. The degree of relatedness or homology between the sequences is predicted computationally or statistically based on weights assigned to the elements aligned between the sequences. This in turn can serve as a potential indicator of the genetic relatedness between the organisms.Adaptation, Biological: Changes in biological features that help an organism cope with its ENVIRONMENT. These changes include physiological (ADAPTATION, PHYSIOLOGICAL), phenotypic and genetic changes.Biological Products: Complex pharmaceutical substances, preparations, or matter derived from organisms usually obtained by biological methods or assay.

The rate of human papillomavirus infection has risen substantially among white Americans during the past couple of generations, with survival rates worse for African Americans. A quickly rising incidence of throat and mouth cancers among young American adults may be caused by the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus HPV. government health data shows that cancers of the base of the tongue, tonsils, soft palate, and pharynx rose by 60 percent among adults 45 years of age and younger during the past couple of generations. These oropharyngeal cancers struck increasingly more Americans during their vital years between 1973 and 2009, according t...

*  Proto-Greek language
... The 'Proto-Greek language' is the assumed last common ancestor of all known varieties of Greek, including Mycenaean, the classical Greek dialects Attic - Ionic, Aeolic, Doric and Arcado-Cypriot, and ultimately Koine, Byzantine and modern Greek. Other Post-Proto-Greek changes. Proto-Greek changes. Vocalization of laryngeals between consonants and initially before consonants to /e/, /a/, /o/ from h₁, h₂, h₃ respectively unlike all other Indo-European languages. For example PIE '*h₁éḱwos' > PG '*íkkʷos' > Mycenaean 'i-qo', Attic 'híppos', Aeolic 'íkkos'. Most Indo-European languages can be traced back to a dialectal variety of late Proto-Indo-European PIE where all three laryngeals had merged after coloring adjacent short /e/ vowels but Greek clearly cannot. All other Indo-European languages reflect the same vowel from all three laryngeals usually /a/, but /i/ or other vowels in Indo-Iranian. Other Indo-European languages again have the same reflex for all three laryngeals, e.g. Cf. This change appears to b...

Atlanta Soto Zen Center. Atlantic Soto Zen Center. Falmouth Soto Zen Sangha. Iqaluit Soto Zen Group. Jacksonville Soto Zen Meditation Group. Wiregrass Soto Zen Group. About Soto Zen. ZEN AND CULTURAL EVOLUTION. As a quest for the understanding of meaning, Zen suggests that the only real and dependable answers to this dilemma will derive from our own direct experience, rather than speculation of a conceptual nature. We claim that it is the essential practice of buddhas and ancestors, the central process by which Shakyamuni Buddha came to enter into realization. In Zen Buddhism, we regard Buddha’s transformational insight as the apex of evolution of the human mind. But we emphasize that the nature of the mind realized by Buddha was at one and the same time the same mind that Buddha was born with, and yet had fundamentally changed in the process of realization. When mind and object merge in realization, the long-lost, original nature of mind is recovered. To teach this to others, as Shakyamuni decided to attempt...

*  The Indian Heritage: The Myth of the Aryan Invasion Theory
... skip to main. skip to sidebar. Meditation Musics. Thursday, September 2, 2010. The Myth of the Aryan Invasion Theory. LORD MACAULAY'S ADDRESS TO THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT, 2 FEBRUARY, 1835. The Myth of the Aryan Invasion Theory By. Shyam Narayan Shukla, Ph.D. Before mid-nineteenth century no one had heard of Aryans coming to India from out side. One had also not heard that foreign people of Aryan race invaded India, conquered the indigenous people of Dravidian race and pushed them to southern part of India. However, now all this is part of the Indian history written by the British rulers of India. Europeans were exposed to Sanskrit and the Hindu scriptures sometime in the seventeenth century. They discovered that Sanskrit and the European languages had many common words. Thus the western scholars arrived at a conclusion that the Indo-European languages must have had a common origin. Their hypothesis was that from Central Asia a section of Sanskrit speaking Aryans came to India and another section of the sam...

*  .. Galloping human evolution .. About linsee
Cultural evolution diversifies the physical environments where humans live, creating a multitude of places where useful mutations can thrive. When people began domesticating animals, planting crops, and living in settled communities, they created environments for themselves quite different from any environments the human species had occupied before, and natural selection proceeded, as it always does, to favor survival and reproductive success for individuals who were, by chance, better adapted to those environments. I’m gonna make you a star!” And – for a quick glimpse into how biology and culture drive each other – if the spear-carrier proves to be bankable, he’ll get more roles, the director will get more movies, the studio will tilt toward making more epics and the extras with good spear-carrying traits will be more likely to succeed in that environment. But if they and their children could not digest milk much past the average age of weaning, it wouldn’t do them any good. Accelerated biological evol...

*  Adaptive bias
'Adaptive bias' is the idea that the human brain has evolved to reason adaptively, rather than truthfully or even rationally, and that cognitive bias may have evolved as a mechanism to reduce the overall 'cost' of cognitive errors as opposed to merely reducing the 'number' of cognitive errors, when faced with making a decision under conditions of uncertainty. Error Management Theory The costly information hypothesis See also References. According to Error Management Theory, when making decisions under conditions of uncertainty, two kinds of errors need to be taken into account—" false positive s", i.e. False positives are also commonly called "Type I errors", and false negatives are called "Type II errors". Conversely, where a false positive is much less costly than a false negative blood tests, smoke detectors, it makes sense to bias the system towards maximising the probability that a particular very costly situation will be recognised, even if this often leads to the relatively un-costly event of noticing ...

*  Behavioral immune system
The 'behavioral immune system' is a phrase coined by the psychological scientist Mark Schaller to refer to a suite of psychological mechanisms that allow individual organisms to detect the potential presence of disease-causing parasite s in their immediate environment, and to engage in behaviors that prevent contact with those objects and individuals. These mechanisms include sensory processes through which cues connoting the presence of parasitic infections are perceived e.g., the smell of a foul odor, the sight of pox or pustules, as well as stimulus–response systems through which these sensory cues trigger a cascade of aversive affective, cognitive, and behavioral reactions e.g., arousal of disgust, automatic activation of cognitions that connote the threat of disease, behavioral avoidance. Implications for human behavior Implications for human culture Implications for immunology References External links. Within the psychological sciences, there is extensive research linking the behavioral immune system t...

*  Metasystem transition
A 'metasystem transition' is the emergence, through evolution, of a higher level of organization or control. This metasystem is more complex, more intelligent, and more flexible in its actions than the initial component systems. The concept of metasystem transition was introduced by the cybernetician Valentin Turchin in his 1970 book "The Phenomenon of Science", and developed among others by Francis Heylighen in the Principia Cybernetica Project. The related notion of evolutionary transition was proposed by the biologists John Maynard Smith and Eörs Szathmáry, in their 1995 book ' The Major Transitions in Evolution '. The following is the classical sequence of metasystem transitions in the history of animal evolution according to Turchin, from the origin of animate life to sapient culture:. ' Control of Position = Motion ': the animal or agent develops the ability to control its position in space 'Control of Motion = Irritability ': the movement of the agent is no longer given, but a reaction to elementary se...

*  Pictish language
'Pictish' is the extinct language, or dialect, spoken by the Picts, the people of northern and central Scotland in the Early Middle Ages. A minority view held by a few scholars claims that Pictish was at least partially non-Indo-European or that a non-Indo-European and Brittonic language coexisted. A number of competing theories have been advanced regarding the nature of the Pictish language: Pictish was an Insular Celtic language allied to the P-Celtic language Brittonic descendants Welsh, Cornish, Cumbric, Breton. Pictish was an Insular Celtic language allied to the Q-Celtic Goidelic languages Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Manx. This theory, while favoured by some in the 19th century is now rejected. This theory, advanced in the 18th century, has long been rejected. Pictish was a Pre-Indo-European language, a relic of the Bronze Age. The evidence of place names and personal names demonstrates that an Insular Celtic language related to the more southerly Brittonic languages was formerly spoken in the Pictish ar...

And when someone affected by the translation circuits speaks to a native in the native's own language, the translation circuits render it as another language of the period and place.

Example one: 'in'excusable'. Here the prefix is a privative and the word means the opposite of 'excusable' that is, "unable to be excused, not excusable". This is also a privative but it does not mean "not valuable, not precious". The meaning of 'invaluable' hinges upon this original meaning and thus means "of very great value" or literally "v...

Evolutionary Conflict: HIV-Like Viruses and the Primate Immune System. Britannica Blog. . Home About us Britannica.com. Evolutionary Conflict: HIV-Like Viruses and the Primate Immune System. Kara Rogers - January 28, 2013. Tracking down the evolutionary origin of HIV is an important part of AIDS research, particularly because of its potential to shed light on how the virus so effectively weakens the human immune system. That ability, it turns out, is the product of at least five million years of evolutionary conflict between HIV-related viruses and the primate genome, according to a study published recently in the journal PLOS Pathogens. Human immunodeficiency virus HIV infects a type of white blood cell known as a helper T cell, which plays a central role in mediating normal immune responses. Bright yellow particles are HIV, and purple is epithelial tissue. Credit: Visuals Unlimited/Corbis. The authors examined the genomes of different species of Old World monkeys, looking specifically for natural variation ...

*  The Mystery of Childhood Leukemia: An Evolutionary Approach
... This website was created by Shannon McGlauflin, Jolene Munger, and Rebecca Nelson as a class project for ANTP 347: “Humans, Disease, and Death,” a class focusing on evolutionary medicine. This approach applies the principles of biological evolution to the diseases and conditions that affect people today, viewing them as the products of natural selection. Each disease has a proximate explanation, which explains why a particular person as opposed to others has come down with it, as well as an evolutionary explanation, which explains why the human population is subject to this disease at all. Evolutionary medicine seeks to understand why diseases are still present in the human population, why natural selection has not eliminated them. It is a cancer of the bone marrow and blood, which occurs when bone marrow creates excess, malformed white blood cells. The chronic forms of the disease are less severe, and the prognosis for patients with chronic leukemia is better than for those with acute leukemia. Acute My...

Such an anchor is also used to transport certain membrane proteins. The oily tail anchors the proteins to an internal membrane. Eventually these proteins disassociate from the cell membrane, have their oily tail detached by yet another protein , and make their way back to the internal membrane where they have a new tail attached and are transported back to the cell outer membrane for more duty. Incredibly evolutionists describe this process as simple:. So having a cysteine available on the surface could be a way to tag these proteins that should be sent to the membrane:. It would then be transported automatically to the cell membrane. This simple rule would require that a cysteine end up on the surface of these proteins after they fold. And likewise, the rule would require that there be no cysteines on the surface of other proteins, which are not suppos...

Using the latest sequencing technologies, GIS researchers showed that many transcription factors, the master proteins that control the expression of other genes, bind specific repeat elements. Over evolutionary time, these repeats were dispersed within different species, creating new regulatory sites throughout these genomes. “Because a lot of the biomedical research use model organisms such as mice and primates, it is important to have a detailed understanding of the differences between these model organisms and humans in order to explain our findings,” said Guillaume Bourque, Ph.D., GIS Senior Group Leader and lead author of the Genome Research paper. “Our research findings imply that these surveys must also include repeats, as they are likely to be the source of important differences between model organisms and humans,” added Dr. “The better our understanding of the particularities of the human ge...

PMID: 23019574 Owner: NLM Status: Publisher. Abstract/OtherAbstract:. Optimal control theory and optimal control experiments are state-of-the-art tools to control quantum systems. Both methods have been demonstrated successfully for numerous applications in molecular physics, chemistry and biology. Modulated light pulses could be realized, driving these various control processes. Next to the control efficiency, a key issue is the understanding of the control mechanism. However, the underlying search strategies in theory and experiment towards the optimal laser field differ. While the optimal control theory operates in the time domain, optimal control experiments optimize the laser fields in the frequency domain. In this perspective we review our recent developments in optimal control theory and their applications. Es...

AS Cohen Macaulay algebras and dualizing complexes. One can define a torsion functor with respect to the ideal $\mathfrak m = \bigoplus_{i \geq 1} A_i$, setting for any graded $A$ module $M$ $$\Gamma_{\mathfrak m} M = \{m \in M. A_{\geq i}m = 0 \mbox{ for } i \gg 0 \} \cong \varinjlim_i Hom_A A/A_{\geq i},M .$$ The derived functors of $\Gamma_{\mathfrak m}$ are the local cohomology functors with respect to $\mathfrak m$, and are denoted by $H i_\mathfrak m$. AS Cohen Macaulay if there is a natural number $n$ such that $H_\mathfrak m i A = H_\mathfrak m A {op} = 0$. By Groethendick's vanishing theorem, if $A$ is a noetherian Cohen Macaulay algebra of local dimension $n$, then $H i_\mathfrak m \equiv 0$ for $i n$.

... Darwin's God. De Novo Genes: The Evolutionary Explanation. The T-urf13 gene produces another transmembrane protein URF13. It appears that T-urf13 is a de novo gene, having been constructed mostly from two segments in or around a ribosomal RNA gene. Does this not suggest that the vast genome is a source of de novo genes. Even a random DNA sequence the length of the entire corn genome does not contain a single gene that likely would code for a functioning gene. One study, for instance, found that more than a million million random sequences were needed to find a single functioning protein. We may not be able to compute precisely the probability of evolution s explanation for de novo genes such as T-urf13, but we do know the chances are not very good. Cornelius Hunter.

Proto-Greek language: The Proto-Greek language is the assumed last common ancestor of all known varieties of Greek, including Mycenaean, the classical Greek dialects (Attic-Ionic, Aeolic, Doric and Arcado-Cypriot), and ultimately Koine, Byzantine and modern Greek. The unity of Proto-Greek would have ended as Hellenic migrants, speaking the predecessor of the Mycenaean language, entered the Greek peninsula sometime in the Neolithic era or the Bronze Age.Von Neumann regular ring: In mathematics, a von Neumann regular ring is a ring R such that for every a in R there exists an x in R such that . To avoid the possible confusion with the regular rings and regular local rings of commutative algebra (which are unrelated notions), von Neumann regular rings are also called absolutely flat rings, because these rings are characterized by the fact that every left module is flat.Molecular evolution: Molecular evolution is a change in the sequence composition of cellular molecules such as DNA, RNA, and proteins across generations.

(1/15569) The developmental basis for allometry in insects.

Within all species of animals, the size of each organ bears a specific relationship to overall body size. These patterns of organ size relative to total body size are called static allometry and have enchanted biologists for centuries, yet the mechanisms generating these patterns have attracted little experimental study. We review recent and older work on holometabolous insect development that sheds light on these mechanisms. In insects, static allometry can be divided into at least two processes: (1) the autonomous specification of organ identity, perhaps including the approximate size of the organ, and (2) the determination of the final size of organs based on total body size. We present three models to explain the second process: (1) all organs autonomously absorb nutrients and grow at organ-specific rates, (2) a centralized system measures a close correlate of total body size and distributes this information to all organs, and (3) autonomous organ growth is combined with feedback between growing organs to modulate final sizes. We provide evidence supporting models 2 and 3 and also suggest that hormones are the messengers of size information. Advances in our understanding of the mechanisms of allometry will come through the integrated study of whole tissues using techniques from development, genetics, endocrinology and population biology.  (+info)

(2/15569) Novel regulation of the homeotic gene Scr associated with a crustacean leg-to-maxilliped appendage transformation.

Homeotic genes are known to be involved in patterning morphological structures along the antero-posterior axis of insects and vertebrates. Because of their important roles in development, changes in the function and expression patterns of homeotic genes may have played a major role in the evolution of different body plans. For example, it has been proposed that during the evolution of several crustacean lineages, changes in the expression patterns of the homeotic genes Ultrabithorax and abdominal-A have played a role in transformation of the anterior thoracic appendages into mouthparts termed maxillipeds. This homeotic-like transformation is recapitulated at the late stages of the direct embryonic development of the crustacean Porcellio scaber (Oniscidea, Isopoda). Interestingly, this morphological change is associated with apparent novelties both in the transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of the Porcellio scaber ortholog of the Drosophila homeotic gene, Sex combs reduced (Scr). Specifically, we find that Scr mRNA is present in the second maxillary segment and the first pair of thoracic legs (T1) in early embryos, whereas protein accumulates only in the second maxillae. In later stages, however, high levels of SCR appear in the T1 legs, which correlates temporally with the transformation of these appendages into maxillipeds. Our observations provide further insight into the process of the homeotic leg-to-maxilliped transformation in the evolution of crustaceans and suggest a novel regulatory mechanism for this process in this group of arthropods.  (+info)

(3/15569) An overview of the evolution of overproduced esterases in the mosquito Culex pipiens.

Insecticide resistance genes have developed in a wide variety of insects in response to heavy chemical application. Few of these examples of adaptation in response to rapid environmental change have been studied both at the population level and at the gene level. One of these is the evolution of the overproduced esterases that are involved in resistance to organophosphate insecticides in the mosquito Culex pipiens. At the gene level, two genetic mechanisms are involved in esterase overproduction, namely gene amplification and gene regulation. At the population level, the co-occurrence of the same amplified allele in distinct geographic areas is best explained by the importance of passive transportation at the worldwide scale. The long-term monitoring of a population of mosquitoes in southern France has enabled a detailed study to be made of the evolution of resistance genes on a local scale, and has shown that a resistance gene with a lower cost has replaced a former resistance allele with a higher cost.  (+info)

(4/15569) The expiry date of man: a synthesis of evolutionary biology and public health.

In industrialised countries, mortality and morbidity are dominated by age related chronic degenerative diseases. The health and health care needs of future populations will be heavily determined by these conditions of old age. Two opposite scenarios of future morbidity exist: morbidity might decrease ("compress"), because life span is limited, and the incidence of disease is postponed. Or morbidity might increase ("expand"), because death is delayed more than disease incidence. Optimality theory in evolutionary biology explains senescence as a by product of an optimised life history. The theory clarifies how senescence is timed by the competing needs for reproduction and survival, and why this leads to a generalised deterioration of many functions at many levels. As death and disease are not independent, future morbidity will depend on duration and severity of the process of senescence, partly determined by health care, palliating the disease severity but increasing the disease duration by postponing death. Even if morbidity might be compressed, health care needs will surely expand.  (+info)

(5/15569) Molecular and evolutionary analysis of Borrelia burgdorferi 297 circular plasmid-encoded lipoproteins with OspE- and OspF-like leader peptides.

We previously described two OspE and three OspF homologs in Borrelia burgdorferi 297 (D. R. Akins, S. F. Porcella, T. G. Popova, D. Shevchenko, S. I. Baker, M. Li, M. V. Norgard, and J. D. Radolf, Mol. Microbiol. 18:507-520, 1995; D. R. Akins, K. W. Bourell, M. J. Caimano, M. V. Norgard, and J. D. Radolf, J. Clin. Investig. 101:2240-2250, 1998). In this study, we characterized four additional lipoproteins with OspE/F-like leader peptides (Elps) and demonstrated that all are encoded on plasmids homologous to cp32 and cp18 from the B31 and N40 strains, respectively. Statistical analysis of sequence similarities using the binary comparison algorithm revealed that the nine lipoproteins from strain 297, as well as the OspE, OspF, and Erp proteins from the N40 and B31 strains, fall into three distinct families. Based upon the observation that these lipoproteins all contain highly conserved leader peptides, we now propose that the ancestors of each of the three families arose from gene fusion events which joined a common N terminus to unrelated proteins. Additionally, further sequence analysis of the strain 297 circular plasmids revealed that rearrangements appear to have played an important role in generating sequence diversity among the members of these three families and that recombinational events in the downstream flanking regions appear to have occurred independently of those within the lipoprotein-encoding genes. The association of hypervariable regions with genes which are differentially expressed and/or subject to immunological pressures suggests that the Lyme disease spirochete has exploited recombinatorial processes to foster its parasitic strategy and enhance its immunoevasiveness.  (+info)

(6/15569) A family of S-methylmethionine-dependent thiol/selenol methyltransferases. Role in selenium tolerance and evolutionary relation.

Several plant species can tolerate high concentrations of selenium in the environment, and they accumulate organoselenium compounds. One of these compounds is Se-methylselenocysteine, synthesized by a number of species from the genus Astragalus (Fabaceae), like A. bisulcatus. An enzyme has been previously isolated from this organism that catalyzes methyl transfer from S-adenosylmethionine to selenocysteine. To elucidate the role of the enzyme in selenium tolerance, the cDNA coding for selenocysteine methyltransferase from A. bisulcatus was cloned and sequenced. Data base searches revealed the existence of several apparent homologs of hitherto unassigned function. The gene for one of them, yagD from Escherichia coli, was cloned, and the protein was overproduced and purified. A functional analysis showed that the YagD protein catalyzes methylation of homocysteine, selenohomocysteine, and selenocysteine with S-adenosylmethionine and S-methylmethionine as methyl group donors. S-Methylmethionine was now shown to be also the physiological methyl group donor for the A. bisulcatus selenocysteine methyltransferase. A model system was set up in E. coli which demonstrated that expression of the plant and, although to a much lesser degree, of the bacterial methyltransferase gene increases selenium tolerance and strongly reduces unspecific selenium incorporation into proteins, provided that S-methylmethionine is present in the medium. It is postulated that the selenocysteine methyltransferase under selective pressure developed from an S-methylmethionine-dependent thiol/selenol methyltransferase.  (+info)

(7/15569) Kodamaea nitidulidarum, Candida restingae and Kodamaea anthophila, three new related yeast species from ephemeral flowers.

Three new yeast species were discovered during studies of yeasts associated with ephemeral flowers in Brazil, Australia and Hawaii. Their physiological and morphological similarity to Kodamaea (Pichia) ohmeri suggested a possible relationship to that species, which was confirmed by rDNA sequencing. Kodamaea nitidulidarum and Candida restingae were found in cactus flowers and associated nitidulid beetles in sand dune ecosystems (restinga) of South-eastern Brazil. Over 350 strains of Kodamaea anthophila were isolated from Hibiscus and morning glory flowers (Ipomoea spp.) in Australia, and from associated nitidulid beetles and Drosophila hibisci. A single isolate came from a beach morning glory in Hawaii. Expansion of the genus Kodamaea to three species modified the existing definition of the genus only slightly. The type and isotype strains are as follows: K. nitidulidarum strains UFMG96-272T (h+; CBS 8491T) and UFMG96-394I (h-; CBS 8492I); Candida restingae UFMG96-276T (CBS 8493T); K. anthophila strains UWO(PS)95-602.1T (h+; CBS 8494T), UWO(PS)91-893.2I (h-; CBS 8495I) and UWO(PS)95-725.1I (h-; CBS 8496I).  (+info)

(8/15569) Reticulate evolution and the origins of ribosomal internal transcribed spacer diversity in apomictic Meloidogyne.

Among root knot nematodes of the genus Meloidogyne, the polyploid obligate mitotic parthenogens M. arenaria, M. javanica, and M. incognita are widespread and common agricultural pests. Although these named forms are distinguishable by closely related mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplotypes, detailed sequence analyses of internal transcribed spacers (ITSs) of nuclear ribosomal genes reveal extremely high diversity, even within individual nematodes. This ITS diversity is broadly structured into two very different groups that are 12%-18% divergent: one with low diversity (< 1.0%) and one with high diversity (6%-7%). In both of these groups, identical sequences can be found within individual nematodes of different mtDNA haplotypes (i.e., among species). Analysis of genetic variance indicates that more than 90% of ITS diversity can be found within an individual nematode, with small but statistically significant (5%-10%; P < 0.05) variance distributed among mtDNA lineages. The evolutionarily distinct parthenogen M. hapla shows a similar pattern of ITS diversity, with two divergent groups of ITSs within each individual. In contrast, two diploid amphimictic species have only one lineage of ITSs with low diversity (< 0.2%). The presence of divergent lineages of rDNA in the apomictic taxa is unlikely to be due to differences among pseudogenes. Instead, we suggest that the diversity of ITSs in M. arenaria, M. javanica, and M. incognita is due to hybrid origins from closely related females (as inferred from mtDNA) and combinations of more diverse paternal lineages.  (+info)
