Comparative analysis of a group of closely related Drosophila species (D. virilis, D. lummei, D. novamexicana, D. americana texana, D. flavomontana, D. montana, D. borealis, D. lacicola, D. littoralis, D. kanekoi, and D. ezoana) was conducted based on an incomplete sequence of gene Ras1. The pattern of the relationships among the species corresponded to… (More)
The polymorphism of nuclear ribosomal DNA has been studied in male German cockroaches. The RFLP analysis has been used to identify seven types of HindIII fragments, the variation of which may serve as the basis for the differentiation of laboratory strains with respect to some population indices, including the average number of fragments per animal (N), the… (More)
Species-specific characteristics of nuclear ribosomal DNA (rDNA) have been determined for the first time for six insect species of order Blattaria (Insecta, Dictyoptera) with the use of restriction analysis and Southern blotting. Probes containing highly conserved fragments of 18 S- and 28 S-like genes of the ribosomal RNA (rRNA) of Tetrahymena pyriformis… (More)
Southern-blot hybridization studies have revealed structural differences within the ribosomal DNA clusters of two sibling species, Drosophila melanogaster and Drosophila simulans. The approach used was shown to be suitable for taxonomic identification of the species examined.
The genetic structure of the Yakutian cattle breed was studied using the following genes: bPRL (RsaI site in exon 3), bGH (AluI site in exon 5), and bPit-1 (HinfI site in exon 6). The values of observed heterozygosity were 0.36 for bPRL, 0.29 for bGH, and 0.16 for bPit-1. These values are within the range of values for this parameter established for a… (More)
Intraspecific HindIII restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) for the structural organization of the ribosomal gene cluster was described in Blattella germanica. In this species, homologous chromosomes were shown to contain ribosomal DNA (rDNA) repeats that differ in structure. The pattern of inheritance was determined for various structural… (More)
Structural polymorphism of rDNA from Blattella germanica was analyzed in six colonies of Moscow city different regions. Two electrophoretic variants of HindIII fragments of rDNA were detected by using 28S-like rDNA probe.
General estimation of ribosomal DNA variation within the Insecta class is presented. It is shown that, using blot-hybridization, one can detect differences in the structure of the ribosomal gene cluster not only between genera within an order, but also between species within a genera, including sibling species. Structure of the ribosomal gene cluster of the… (More)
