Cytogenetic characterization of Metynnis maculatus (Teleostei; Characiformes): the description in Serrasalminae of a small B chromosome bearing inactive NOR-like sequences
(UNIV FLORENCE BOTANY INST, 2009)
Mitotic chromosomes of Metynnis maculatus (KNER 1860) (Teleostei, Characiformes), a fish species that occurs in the Amazon and Parana-Paraguay river basins, were analyzed for the first time by Giemsa and Ag-NOR staining, ...
High chromosome variability and the presence of multivalent associations in buthid scorpions
In this study, we investigated the mitotic and meiotic chromosomes of 11 Buthidae scorpion species, belonging to three genera (Ananteris, Rhopalurus and Tityus), to obtain detailed knowledge regarding the mechanisms ...
A new karyotype of oligoryzomys (sigmodontinae, rodentia) from central Brazil
A new karyotype of the genus Oligoryzomys was described for specimens collected in Brazilian Cerrado in Tocantins and Goias States. Conventional staining, G-, C-banding, and Ag-NOR staining techniques were used for describe ...
Chromosomal painting and ZW sex chromosomes differentiation in Characidium (Characiformes, Crenuchidae)
(Biomed Central Ltd., 2011-07-25)
Background: The Characidium (a Neotropical fish group) have a conserved diploid number (2n = 50), but show remarkable differences among species and populations in relation to sex chromosome systems and location of nucleolus ...
New occurrence of a macro B-chromosome in Astyanax scabripinnis paranae (Pisces, Characiformes, Characidae)
Cytogenetic studies performed on 17 specimens (11 females and six males) of Astyanax scabripinnis paranae from the Cascatinha stream showed that this population has 2n = 50 chromosomes (8M + 22SM + 10ST + 10A), two chromosome ...
Evidence of an XX/XY sex chromosome system in the fish Dormitator maculatus (Teleostei, Eleotrididae)
(Sociedade Brasileira de Genética, 2006-01-01)
The fish Dormitator maculatus has a chromosomes number of 2n = 46, females having a karyotype of 14 M, 28 SM, 2 ST and 2A and males 13 M, 28 SM, 3 ST and 2A. The presence of a heteromorphic pair in the males and a corresponding ...
Cytogenetic analysis of five Hypostomus species (Siluriformes, Loricariidae)
(Sociedade Brasileira de Genética, 2014)
Extensive polymorphism and chromosomal characteristics of ribosomal DNA in the characid fish Triportheus venezuelensis (Characiformes, Characidae)
(Sociedade Brasileira de Genética, 2007-01-01)
The karyotype and chromosomal characteristics of the characid fish Triportheus venezuelensis were investigated using differential staining techniques (C-banding, Ag-NOR staining) and fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) ...
