the complete mitochondrial genome of the sexual oribatid mite steganacarus magnus: genome rearrangements and loss of trnas.complete mitochondrial (mt) genomes and the gene rearrangements therein are increasingly used as molecular markers for investigating phylogenetic relationships, especially for elucidating deep splits. contributing to the complete mt genomes of arthropods, especially arachnida, available so far, we provide the first complete mt genome of a sarcoptiform mite species, the sexually reproducing oribatid mite steganacarus magnus (acari, oribatida) which was determined by sequencing of long pcr product ...200818992147
the complete mitochondrial genome of the house dust mite dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (trouessart): a novel gene arrangement among arthropods.the apparent scarcity of available sequence data has greatly impeded evolutionary studies in acari (mites and ticks). this subclass encompasses over 48,000 species and forms the largest group within the arachnida. although mitochondrial genomes are widely utilised for phylogenetic and population genetic studies, only 20 mitochondrial genomes of acari have been determined, of which only one belongs to the diverse order of the sarcoptiformes. in this study, we describe the mitochondrial genome of ...200919284646
the complete mitochondrial genome of the scab mite psoroptes cuniculi (arthropoda: arachnida) provides insights into acari available sequence information has greatly impeded population genetics, phylogenetics and systematics studies in the subclass acari (mites and ticks). mitochondrial (mt) dna is well known to provide genetic markers for investigations in these areas, but complete mt genomic data have been lacking for many acari species. herein, we present the complete mt genome of the scab mite psoroptes cuniculi.201425052180
no evidence for the 'meselson effect' in parthenogenetic oribatid mites (oribatida, acari).it has been hypothesized that in ancient apomictic, nonrecombining lineages the two alleles of a single copy gene will become highly divergent as a result of the independent accumulation of mutations (meselson effect). we used a partial sequence of the elongation factor-1alpha (ef-1alpha) and the heat shock protein 82 (hsp82) genes to test this hypothesis for putative ancient parthenogenetic oribatid mite lineages. in addition, we tested if the hsp82 gene is fully transcribed by sequencing the c ...200616405590
investigation on the taxonomic status of steganacarus magnus and steganacarus anomalus (acari:oribatida) using mitochondrial dna test the previously suggested synonymization of s. anomalus with the older s. magnus, a fragment of the mitochondrial coi gene was amplified via the polymerase chain reaction and sequenced. the sequence variation was examined in a total of 327 base pairs for four steganacarid mite populations, two of which belong to s. anomalus, one to s. magnus and one to s. hirsutus. the sequence variation suggests that s. magnus and s. anomalus are not distinct species and that the population from fioreta ...19969022265
