Genetic polymorphism, molecular characterization and relatedness of Macrobrachium species (Palaemonidae) based on RAPD-PCR.
The prawn genus Macrobrachium belongs to the family Palaemonidae. Its species are widely distributed in lakes, reservoirs, floodplains, and rivers in tropical and subtropical regions of South America. Globally, the genus ...
Angiotensin converting enzyme polymorphism in type 2 diabetes mellitus
This study was undertaken to assess the frequency of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. A total of 162 patients with type 2 diabetes and 160 ...
Cytogenetic and random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis of Leptodactylus species from rural and urban environments (Anura, Amphibia)
Cytogenetic and random amplified polymorphic DNA analyses carried out in the species Leptodactylus podicipinus, L. ocellatus, L. labyrinthicus, and L. fuscus from rural and urban habitats of the northwest region of São ...
Effects of CSN3 and LGB gene polymorphisms on production traits in beef cattle
The objective of the present study was to estimate the allele and genotype frequencies of the CSN3/Hinfl and LGB/HaeIII gene polymorphisms in beef cattle belonging to different genetic groups, and to determine the effects ...
Genetic variation between several species of sections Extranervosae, Caulorrhizae, Heteranthae, and Triseminatae (genus Arachis) estimated by DNA polymorphism
Genetic variation within and among accessions of the genus Arachis representing sections Extranervosae, Caulorrhizae, Heteranthae, and Triseminatae was evaluated using RFLP and RAPD markers. RAPD markers revealed a higher ...
Genetic markers between Biomphalaria glabrata snails susceptible and resistant to Schistosoma mansoni infection
(Instituto Oswaldo Cruz, Ministério da Saúde, 2002-10-01)
The analysis of the genetic variability related to susceptibility to Schistosoma mansoni infection in the vector of the genus Biomphalaria is important in terms of a better understanding of the epidemiology of schistosomiasis ...
