Satellite DNAs between selfishness and functionality: structure, genomics and evolution of tandem repeats in centromeric (hetero)chromatin.
Satellite DNAs (tandemly repeated, non-coding DNA sequences) stretch over almost all native centromeres and surrounding pericentromeric heterochromatin. Once considered as inert by-products of genomeExpand

Molecular relationships among European samples of Reticulitermes (Isoptera, Rhinotermitidae).
Taxonomy and phyletic relationships of the European termites of the holarctic genus Reticulitermes are highly debated and poorly known. Sequencing analyses of the complete cytochrome oxidase subunitExpand

Lysosomal enzyme release from polymorphonuclear leukocytes induced by immune complexes of IgM and of IgG.
Lysosomal enzyme release by rabbit polymorphonuclear leukocytes induced by immune complexes of IgM or IgG antibodies and ovalbumin was studied by in vitro experiments. It was shown that IgM immuneExpand

The mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase II gene in Bacillus stick insects: ancestry of hybrids, androgenesis, and phylogenetic relationships.
Sequencing of a cytochrome oxidase II (COII) gene fragment in Bacillus taxa provided evidence that the bisexual B. rossius is the maternal ancestor of the hybridogenetic B. rossius-grandii strainsExpand

Historical biogeography of Reticulitermes termites (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) inferred from analyses of mitochondrial and nuclear loci.
Termites of the genus Reticulitermes are ecologically and economically important wood-feeding social insects that are widespread in the Holarctic region. Despite their importance, no study has yetExpand
