- Molecular adaptation and the origin of land plantsElizabeth R Waters
Department of Biology, San Diego State University, 5500 Campanile Dr, San Diego, CA 92182 4614, USA
Mol Phylogenet Evol 29:456-63. 2003..In this review I summarize the current knowledge of a variety of physiological and biochemical adaptations to land including plant growth hormones, isoprene, phenolics, and heat shock proteins...
- The Arabidopsis ClpB/Hsp100 family of proteins: chaperones for stress and chloroplast developmentUng Lee
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA
Plant J 49:115-27. 2007..Thus, in plants, the function of ClpB/Hsp100 proteins is not restricted to heat stress, but a specific member of the family provides housekeeping functions that are essential to chloroplast development...
- Evolutionary analysis of the small heat shock proteins in five complete algal genomesElizabeth R Waters
Department of Biology, San Diego State University, 5500 Campanile Drive, San Diego, CA 92182 4614, USA
J Mol Evol 65:162-74. 2007..Finally, our analysis of the algal sHSPs sequences in light of the known sHSP crystal structures and functional data suggests that the sHSPs possess considerable structural and functional diversity...
- The recent evolution of a pseudogene: diversity and divergence of a mitochondria-localized small heat shock protein in Arabidopsis thalianaElizabeth R Waters
Department of Biology, San Diego State University, San Diego, CA 92122, USA
Genome 51:177-86. 2008..By capturing a pseudogene in the making our study provides important information on how pseudogenes are formed...
- Comparative analysis of the small heat shock proteins in three angiosperm genomes identifies new subfamilies and reveals diverse evolutionary patternsElizabeth R Waters
Department of Biology, San Diego State University, 5500 Campanile Drive, San Diego, CA 92182, USA
Cell Stress Chaperones 13:127-42. 2008..This was due to an expansion of the cytosolic I sHSPs that was not seen in the other two species. Our analysis indicates that the sHSPs are a dynamic protein family in angiosperms with unexpected levels of diversity...
- Comparative genomic analysis of the Hsp70s from five diverse photosynthetic eukaryotesTanya Renner
Biology Department, San Diego State University, 5500 Campanile Drive, San Diego, CA 92182 4614, USA
Cell Stress Chaperones 12:172-85. 2007..The evolutionary and functional implications of these differences are discussed...
- Positive natural selection has driven the evolution of the Hsp70s in Diguetia spidersJames Starrett
Department of Biology, San Diego State University, San Diego, CA 92182, USA
Biol Lett 3:439-44. 2007..These spiders are a small family restricted to deserts. They display heat-tolerant behaviours not seen in their closest relatives, the Pholcidae and Plectreuridae...
- Evolutionarily assembled cis-regulatory module at a human ciliopathy locusJeong Ho Lee
Neurogenetics Laboratory, Howard Hughes Medical Institute HHMI, Department of Neurosciences, University of California, San Diego, CA, USA
Science 335:966-9. 2012..Hence, during vertebrate evolution of genes involved in ciliogenesis, nonparalogous genes were arranged to a functional gene cluster with shared regulatory elements...
- A comparative genomic analysis of the small heat shock proteins in Caenorhabditis elegans and briggsaeBrian D Aevermann
Oregon Health Sciences University, MMI Core Facility, 3181 S W Sam Jackson Park Road, Portland, OR 97239 3098, USA
Genetica 133:307-19. 2008..elegans and C. briggsae sHSPs. However, the evolutionary patterns do suggest that functional divergence has occurred between the sHSPs in C. elegans and C. briggsae and the sHSPs in more distantly related invertebrates...
