The Biology of Biodiversity

Organic variety, or biodiversity, refers back to the common characteristic of all residing organisms that every person being is exclusive - that's, no organisms are exact. The biology of biodiversity needs to comprise all of the elements of evolutionary and ecological sciences interpreting the starting place, adjustments, and upkeep of the di­ versity of dwelling organisms.

1987), a T cell differentiation marker contact site A (cs-A), a cell adhesion molecule from aggregating slime mold (Matsunaga and Mori, 1987), and adenoviral E3 glycoprotein (Chatterjee and Maizel, 1984). We cannot argue that these are not distantly diverged members of the IgGSF. However, none of them meet many of our criteria of membership so we are not convinced it is appropriate to include them as members of the IgGSF. We also believe that the arguments for including the CD2, LFA-3, and Blast-1 molecules are inconclusive as of now.

Note that these categories are not meant to imply necessarily functional or evolutionary relationships. A. , 1973). It is probably divergently related to the MHC class I1 CY chain (McNicholas et a l . , 1983) and may be considered functionally an orphan MHC gene. It is encoded by a single, nonpolymorphic gene (Parnes and Seidman, 1982). Besides t h e antigen-presenting class I sequences, P2-microglobulinis also found in association with the Qa and Tla MHC molecules and the CD1 family of antigens.

However, they are not linked to the MHC and they are no more similar to class I than to class I1 sequences (Calabi and Milstein, 1986). This family has at least five members that may be clustered. , 1986). The role of these molecules is unknown, but their interspecies conservation, dissimilarity to MHC genes, and differential expression imply an independent protein function, possibly morphogenic in nature. The T6 molecule is expressed on all epidermal Langerhans cells. These are the only epidermal cells that express MHC class I1 molecules and are believed to be specialized antigen presenting cells (see Wolff and Stingl, 1983).
