Phylogenetic Analysis Indicates Bacteria-to- Apicoplast Lateral Gene Transfer

ZHU Xin-Yu(Department of Life and Technology,Nantong Normal College,Nantong 226007,China)  
Apicomplexan protozoa contains a highly reduced plastid-like organelle termed apicoplast.Data from clpC gene in apicoplast and their homologs in other plastids and bacteria were used to reconstruct phylogeny of apicoplast.Trees were reconstructed using neighbor-joining,minimum evolution,maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood.The reconstructions robustly support the monophyly of apicoplast and B.burgdorferi.This result underpins the mixture-genome hypotheses of apicoplast,furthermore,provides a new insight into the origin of this mixture genome.
