Endocytosis mediated siderophore uptake as a strategy for Fe acquisition in diatoms

Sci Adv
PMCID: 5955625
PMID: 29774236
DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aar4536
call_split See protocol

[…] The ISIP1 protein sequence (Phatr3_J55031) was used as the seed sequence for BLASTp analysis against a curated library comprising all protein sequences in UniRef, the MMETSP (), and all additional sequences hosted on the JGI portal. This composite database, described by Dorrell et al. (), is more extensive than any individual resource. Sequences retrieved with a th […]


Gene refashioning through innovative shifting of reading frames in mosses

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5908804
PMID: 29674719
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-04025-x

[…] charophytes Nitella hyalina and Closterium peracerosum–strigosum–littorale complex in NCBI, as well as the over 650 transcriptomes in the Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP) ( BLAST search of 1KP database using Marchantia and Sphagnum Hr protein sequences (JGI IDs: Mapoly0112s0056.1 and Sphfalx0048s0034.1) as query ident […]


Recurrent acquisition of cytosine methyltransferases into eukaryotic retrotransposons

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5890265
PMID: 29632298
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03724-9

[…] the complete domain architecture using Hmmscan with PfamA database as obtained in March 2015. For the dinoflagellate species without reference genome, we downloaded transcriptome assemblies from the MMETSP project and we used Transdecoder to obtain coding sequences. Reference retrotransposons sequences were obtained from RepBase (download February 2014). Viral sequences were obtained from NCBI no […]


Multispecies reconstructions uncover widespread conservation, and lineage specific elaborations in eukaryotic mRNA metabolism

PLoS One
PMCID: 5862402
PMID: 29561870
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0192633

[…] ity (Table B in ). Where no such sequences were available (for example, within dinoflagellates, and bodonids), combined transcriptome datasets were retrieved from a previously modified version of the MMETSP database that had previously been cleaned of potential contaminant sequences [, , ]. Other transcriptome datasets, which include, Trypanoplasma borreli, Trypanosoma theileri, Trypanosoma carass […]


A tale of two mixotrophic chrysophytes: Insights into the metabolisms of two Ochromonas species (Chrysophyceae) through a comparison of gene expression

PLoS One
PMCID: 5811012
PMID: 29438384
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0192439

[…] ies supplemented with additional chrysophytes and synurophytes was constructed using 18S rRNA gene sequences retrieved from GenBank or the Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP) database. A segment of 1,677 positions on the 18S rRNA gene was selected through a combination of Gblocks [] and manual editing to use for tree building using MUSCLE []. Approximate maximum li […]


A global ocean atlas of eukaryotic genes

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5785536
PMID: 29371626
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-02342-1

[…] p:// Unigenes without Pfam domains are excluded from analyses presented in Figs. , and Supplementary Figs. , , , . The Pfam domain PF01036 was searched in unigenes and the MMETSP collection using hmmscan (from HMMer 3.1b2). NCBI sequences carrying the Pfam motif were retrieved through the PFAM portal (, May 2017). All-vs.-all BLAST comparisons were […]
