Alu elements are powerful phylogenetic markers. The combination of a recently-developed computational pipeline, polyDetect, with high copy number Alu insertions has previously been utilized to help resolve the Papio baboon phylogeny with high statistical support. Here, the polyDetect method was applied to the highly contentious Cebidae phylogeny within New World monkeys (NWM). The polyDetect method relies on conserved homology/identity of short read sequence data among the species being compared to accurately map predicted shared Alu insertions to each unique flanking sequence. The results of this comprehensive assessment indicate that there were insufficient sequence homology/identity stretches in non-repeated DNA sequences among the four Cebidae genera analyzed in this study to make this strategy phylogenetically viable. The ∼20 million years of evolutionary divergence of the Cebidae genera has resulted in random sequence decay within the short read data, obscuring potentially orthologous elements in the species tested. These analyses suggest that the polyDetect pipeline is best suited to resolving phylogenies of more recently diverged lineages when high-quality assembled genomes are not available for the taxa of interest.

An serine-threonine protein kinase that requires the presence of physiological concentrations of CALCIUM and membrane PHOSPHOLIPIDS. The additional presence of DIACYLGLYCEROLS markedly increases its sensitivity to both calcium and phospholipids. The sensitivity of the enzyme can also be increased by PHORBOL ESTERS and it is believed that protein kinase C is the receptor protein of tumor-promoting phorbol esters.
