McKenna and Farrell (2010) used DNA sequences from 9 nuclear genes (elongation factor-1[alpha] (EF-1[alpha]), alanyl-tRNA synthetase (AATS), CAD, 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (PGD), sans fille (SNF), triosephosphate isomerase (TPI), RNA Pol II, 28S, and 18S) to reconstruct the phylogeny of Holometabola with a focus on determining the phylogenetic placement of Strepsiptera.
Apart from ALAD, (G6PD), an thiol containing first enzyme of the pentose phosphate pathway, that provides extra mitochondrial NADPH to the cells through the oxidation of glucose-6-phosphate to 6-phosphogluconate, which in turn provide the NADPH to maintain constant levels of GSH to GR, mediates the conversion of GSSG to GSH.
Eight enzymes (9 loci) were tested for polymorphism: fumarate hydratase (FUM), aspartate minotransferase (GOT1, GOT2), isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH),lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), mannose phosphate isomerase (MPI), phosphoglucose isomerase (PGI), phosphoglucomutase (PGM), and 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6PGDH).
Enzyme systems utilized for this examination are acid phosphatase, alcohol dehydrogenase, aldehyde oxidase, alodolase, alkaline phosphatase, esterase, alpha glycerophosphate dehydrogenase, lactate dehydrogenase, malate dehydrogenase, malic enzyme, octanol dehydrogenase, 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, 1-pyrroline dehydrogenase, peroxidase, sorbitol dehydrogenase and tetrazolium oxidase.
The 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6PGDH) gene was chosen because it shows a high degree of sequence polymorphism among Leishmania species (12), is well represented in sequence databases, and is known to differentiate the main zymodeme from L.
