- The two tempos of nuclear pore complex evolution: highly adapting proteins in an ancient frozen structureEric Bapteste
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, B3H 1X5, Canada
Genome Biol 6:R85. 2005..Until recently, too little phylogenetic information was available to address this issue by using multiple characters for many lineages...

- Archaeal phylogeny based on proteins of the transcription and translation machineries: tackling the Methanopyrus kandleri paradoxCeline Brochier
Equipe Phylogénomique, Université Aix Marseille I, Centre Saint Charles, 13331 Marseille Cedex 3, France
Genome Biol 5:R17. 2004..We analyzed archaeal phylogeny using two concatenated datasets consisting of 14 proteins involved in transcription and 53 ribosomal proteins (3,275 and 6,377 positions, respectively)...
- Nanoarchaea: representatives of a novel archaeal phylum or a fast-evolving euryarchaeal lineage related to Thermococcales?Celine Brochier
EA EGEE Evolution, Genomique, Environnement Université Aix Marseille I, Centre Saint Charles, 3 Place Victor Hugo, 13331 Marseille, Cedex 3, France
Genome Biol 6:R42. 2005..Confirming the phylogenetic position of N. equitans is thus crucial for deciphering the history of the archaeal domain...
- An emerging phylogenetic core of Archaea: phylogenies of transcription and translation machineries converge following addition of new genome sequencesCeline Brochier
Laboratoire Evolution, Genomique, Environnement, Université Aix Marseille I, Centre Saint Charles, Case 36, 3 Place Victor Hugo, 13331 Marseille, Cedex 3, France
BMC Evol Biol 5:36. 2005..However, some incongruence remained between the two phylogenies. This may be due either to undetected LGT and/or to a lack of sufficient phylogenetic signal in the datasets...
- Widespread distribution of archaeal reverse gyrase in thermophilic bacteria suggests a complex history of vertical inheritance and lateral gene transfersCeline Brochier-Armanet
EA 3781 EGEE Evolution Génome Environnement, Université de Provence Aix Marseille I, Centre Saint Charles, 3 Place Victor Hugo 13331, Marseille Cedex 3, France
Archaea 2:83-93. 2007..However, it also questions the role of this enzyme in thermophilic bacteria and the selective advantage its presence could provide...
- Horizontal gene transfer and archaeal origin of deoxyhypusine synthase homologous genes in bacteriaCeline Brochier
Equipe Phylogénomique, Université Aix Marseille I, 3 Place Victor Hugo, 13331 Marseille Cedex 3, France
Gene 330:169-76. 2004..This is exemplified by the fact that, in archaea, the complex evolutionary history of the DHS is not paralleled by that of the IF-5A, indicating that these proteins do not follow a perfect co-evolution...
