Molecular Phylogenetics Evidence for a Novel Lineage of Amoebae Within Discosea (Amoebozoa: Lobosa)
Languages of publication
Some amoebae were recovered from freshwater samples on agar plates. Due to a fungal contamination tightly associated with these amoebae, it was impossible to correctly characterize them on a morphological base, but sequences of the small subunit ribosomal RNA gene (SSU rDNA) were successfully obtained from three strains. Phylogenetic analysis performed on these SSU rDNA allowed to identify these amoebae as members of a new lineage, related to the Dermamoebida, which includes also several other environmental SSU sequences.
