  1. ncbi Assessing the microsporidia-fungi relationship: Combined phylogenetic analysis of eight genes
    Erin E Gill
    Department of Botany, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    Gene 375:103-9. 2006
    ..These trees place microsporidia as a sister to a combined ascomycete+basidiomycete clade. AU tests determined that this branching pattern is the most likely, but failed to reject two alternatives...
  2. pmc Stripped-down DNA repair in a highly reduced parasite
    Erin E Gill
    Department of Botany, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    BMC Mol Biol 8:24. 2007
    ..cuniculi were compared to those of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to ascertain how the process of genome reduction has affected the DNA repair pathways...
  3. pmc ESTs from the microsporidian Edhazardia aedis
    Erin E Gill
    Department of Botany, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, V6T 1Z4, Canada
    BMC Genomics 9:296. 2008
    ..The only other microsporidian EST project is from A. locustae, and serves as a basis for comparison with E. aedis...
  4. ncbi Splicing and transcription differ between spore and intracellular life stages in the parasitic microsporidia
    Erin E Gill
    Biodiversity Research Centre and Department of Botany, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
    Mol Biol Evol 27:1579-84. 2010
    ..We hypothesize that at least some transcripts in spores are a product of the cell's transition into a dormant state and that these unusual mRNAs could play a structural role rather than an informational one...
  5. pmc The proportional lack of archaeal pathogens: Do viruses/phages hold the key?
    Erin E Gill
    Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada
    Bioessays 33:248-54. 2011
    ..If phage and virus populations are indeed exclusive to their respective host Domains, this has important implications for both the evolution of pathogens and approaches to infectious disease control...
  6. ncbi Early evolution within kinetoplastids (euglenozoa), and the late emergence of trypanosomatids
    Alastair G B Simpson
    Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, and Department of Biology, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada
    Protist 155:407-22. 2004
    ..These protein trees with improved taxon sampling provide the best evidence to date for a 'late' emergence of trypanosomatids, contradicting recent SSUrRNA-based proposals for a relatively early divergence of this group...
  7. ncbi Novel mitochondrion-related organelles in the anaerobic amoeba Mastigamoeba balamuthi
    Erin E Gill
    Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, Program in Integrated Microbial Biodiversity, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Dalhousie University, B3H 1X5, Canada
    Mol Microbiol 66:1306-20. 2007
    ..These data indicate that the loss of classical aerobic mitochondrial functions and acquisition of anaerobic enzymes and Fe-S cluster assembly proteins occurred in a free-living member of the eukaryote super-kingdom Amoebozoa...
