Gene recognition in eukaryotic DNA by comparison of genomic sequences

P. S. Novichkov, M. S. Gelfand, A. A. Mironov
2001 Bioinformatics  
Motivation: Sequencing of complete eukaryotic genomes and large syntenic fragments of genomes makes it possible to apply genomic comparison for gene recognition.  ...  This is caused by a large amount of sequence conservation in non-coding regions of the human and mouse genes probably due to regulatory elements.  ...  This study was partially supported by grants from the Russian State Scientific Program 'Human Genome ', INTAS (99-1476), the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (55000309), and the Ludwig Institute for Cancer  ...

Brice Felden, Luc Paillard
2016 RNA: A publication of the RNA Society

Gene Families: The Taxonomy of Protein Paralogs and Chimeras

S. Henikoff
1997 Science  
Ancient duplications and rearrangements of protein-coding segments have resulted in complex gene family relationships.  ...  As a result, gene products may acquire new specificities, altered recognition properties, or modified functions.  ...  This relationship was not detected by pairwise sequence comparisons, but rather by recognition of a tubulin motif in FtsZ.  ...

Two Types of ftsZ Genes Isolated from the Unicellular Primitive Red Alga Galdieria sulphuraria

M. Takahara, H. Takahashi, S. Matsunaga, A. Sakai, S. Kawano, T. Kuroiwa
1999 Plant and Cell Physiology  
A comparison of the FtsZs of G. sulphuraria and other organisms shows that FtsZ is highly and universally conserved among prokaryotes, primitive eukaryotic algae, and higher plants.  ...  FtsZ plays a crucial role in bacterial cell division, and may be involved in plastid division in eukaryotes.  ...  This work was supported by a Grant for Special Promoted Research (project no. 06101002) to T.K. from the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Japan.  ...

Did DNA replication evolve twice independently?

D. D. Leipe, L. Aravind, E. V. Koonin
1999 Nucleic Acids Research  
We performed detailed sequence comparisons of the proteins that fulfill indispensable functions in DNA replication and classified them into four main categories with respect to the conservation in bacteria  ...  Consequently, the moderntype system for double-stranded DNA replication likely evolved independently in the bacterial and archaeal/eukaryotic lineages.  ...  The recognition of homology between other replication proteins where sequence similarity was initially hard to detect has been made possible by structural comparisons.  ...
