Karyological characterization of the butterfly lizard (Leiolepis reevesii rubritaeniata) was performed by conventional Giemsa staining, Ag-NOR banding, FISH with the 18S-28S and 5S rRNA genes and telomeric (TTAGGG)n sequences, and CGH. The karyotype was composed of 2 distinct components, macrochromosomes and microchromosomes, and the chromosomal(More)
The butterfly lizard (Leiolepis reevesii rubritaeniata) has the diploid chromosome number of 2n = 36, comprising two distinctive components, macrochromosomes and microchromosomes. To clarify the conserved linkage homology between lizard and snake chromosomes and to delineate the process of karyotypic evolution in Squamata, we constructed a cytogenetic map(More)
We investigated the histology and histochemistry (of carbohydrates and proteins) of the digestive tract of the freshwater stingray Himantura signifier. The alimentary tract consists of a mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach (with a descending cardiac and ascending pyloric part), anterior intestine (with an initial portion and a spiral intestine) and posterior(More)
Chromosomal mapping of the butterfly lizards Leiolepis belliana belliana and L. boehmei was done using the 18S-28S and 5S rRNA genes and telomeric (TTAGGG)n sequences. The karyotype of L. b. belliana was 2n = 36, whereas that of L. boehmei was 2n = 34. The 18S-28S rRNA genes were located at the secondary constriction of the long arm of chromosome 1, while(More)
Our aim has been to determine whether carbohydrate distribution in the oviducts of progesterone-treated animals is comparable with that of seasonal breeders in Rana tigrina. Like many other anurans, R. tigrina oviduct exhibits a short straight portion (pars recta, pr) at the beginning followed by a long, highly coiled portion (pars convoluta, pc).(More)
Based on molecular phylogeny of available complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) genome sequences reveals that Crocodylus siamensis and C. porosus are closely related species. Yet, the sequence divergence of their mtDNA showed only a few values under conspecific level. In this study, a new haplotype (haplotype2, EF581859) of the complete mtDNA genome of Siamese(More)

The Kasetsart Journal is a publication of Kasetsart University intended to make available the results of technical work in the natural and the social sciences. Articles are contributed by Kasetsart University faculty members as well as by those from other institutions. edition is issued twice a year in June and December. ABSTRACT Weed flora and yield(More)
Three chalcone synthase (CHS) genes were isolated from Curcuma longa Linn. using TAIL-PCR. ClCHS1 and ClCHS2 were 1,460 and 1,407 bp in length, respectively, containing 1,191 bp open reading frame (ORF) that encodes 396 amino acids, whereas ClCHS3 was 1,394 bp in length containing 1,170 bp ORF that encodes 389 amino acids. The structure of all three genes(More)
