Comparative analysis of noncoding sequences of orthologous bovine and human gene pairs
Genomic sequence comparison across species has enabled the elucidation of important coding and regulatory sequences encoded within DNA. Of particular interest are the noncoding regulatory sequences, which influence gene ...
Nuclear mitochondrial-like sequences in ants: Evidence from Atta cephalotes (Formicidae: Attini)
Nuclear mitochondrial-like sequences (numts) are copies of mitochondrial DNA that have migrated to the genomic DNA. We present the first characterization of numts in ants, these numts being homologues to a mitochondrial ...
Taxonomic and phylogenetic relationships between neotropical species of ticks from genus Amblyomma (Acari: Ixodidae) inferred from second internal transcribed spacer sequences of rDNA
The accurate specific identification of ticks is essential for the study, control and prevention of tick-borne diseases. Herein, we determined ribosomal nucleotide sequences of the second internal transcribed spacer (ITS2) ...
Identification and complete sequencing of novel human transcripts through the use of mouse orthologs and testis cDNA sequences
The correct identification of all human genes, and their derived transcripts, has not yet been achieved, and it remains one of the major aims of the worldwide genomics community. Computational programs suggest the existence ...
Characterization and genome organization of a repetitive element associated with the nucleolus organizer region in leporinuselongatus (anostomidae: Characiformes)
Chromosome mapping and studies of the genomic organization of repetitive DNA sequences provide valuable insights that enhance our evolutionary and structural understanding of these sequences, as well as identifying chromosomal ...
