We performed multidirectional chromosome painting in a comparative cytogenetic study of the three howler monkey species Alouatta fusca, A. caraya and A. seniculus macconnelli (Atelinae, Platyrrhini) in order to reconstruct phylogenetic relationships within this genus. Comparative genome maps between these species were established by multicolor fluorescence(More)
We established chromosome homology maps between Mus musculus (MMU) and five species of the Akodontini tribe, Akodon cursor (2n = 14, 15 and 16), A. montensis (2n = 24), A. paranaensis (2n = 44), A. serrensis (2n = 46) and Oligoryzomys flavescens (2n = 66) by Zoo-FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridization) using mouse chromosome-specific probes. The aims of(More)
Like various other diurnal birds of prey, the world's largest eagle, the Harpy (Harpia harpyja), presents an atypical bird karyotype with 2n=58 chromosomes. There is little knowledge about the dramatic changes in the genomic reorganization of these species compared to other birds. Since recently, the chicken provides a “default map” for various birds(More)
Sixteen species of ectoparasites were collected from 50 wild rodents, from August 1990 to August 1991, in an area of Araucaria augustifolia forest, in the municipality of Tijucas do Sul, State of Paraná, Brazil. Ectoparasites infested 98% of the rodents, with the highest indices of infestation found in the drycool season. Species that occurred in single or(More)
This work presents chromosome homology maps between Mus musculus (MMU) and 2 South American rodent species from the Cricetidae group: Necromys lasiurus (NLA, 2n = 34) and Thaptomys nigrita (TNI, 2n = 52), established by ZOO-FISH using mouse chromosome-specific painting probes. Extending previous molecular cytogenetic studies in Neotropical rodents, the(More)
We performed multi-directional chromosome painting in a comparative cytogenetic study of the three Atelinae species Brachyteles arachnoides, Ateles paniscus paniscus and Ateles belzebuth marginatus, in order to reconstruct phylogenetic relationships within this Platyrrhini subfamily. Comparative chromosome maps between these species were established by(More)
Chromosomes were analyzed in 91 specimens ofNectomys squamipes, collected in three distinct geographic regions of Brazil. Chromosomal polymorphism due to supernumerary chromosomes, Robertsonian rearrangement and variation of sex chromosomes is reported. Samples collected in the northeastern region had 2n=52, FN=52; 2n=53, FN=54; 2n=54, FN=56; 2n=55, FN=56;(More)
A quantitative analysis of C bands by densitometric measurements in chromosomes 1, 9, 16, and Y was conducted in Caucasians and Japanese living in Brazil. Sixty normal unrelated subjects (30 males and 30 females) were studied in each racial group. Caucasians presented C bands of chromosomes 1, 9, and 16 larger than Japanese, but, on average, only the(More)
Chromosome studies on 14 specimens of Deltamys kempi disclosed six males with 2n = 37, NF = 38, six females with 2n = 38, NF = 38, and two females with 2n = 37, NF = 38. G- and C-band analyses revealed a Y-autosome translocation in the males leading to a multiple chromosome system of sex determination of the type X1X1X2X2/X1X2Y, this being the second case(More)
Leishmaniasis is endemic since last century in Adrianópolis Municipality, Ribeira Valley and is a serious public health. A study carried out during 1993-2003 on epidemiological surveys conducted in rural communities showed 339 new cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) detected from four municipalities (Adrianópolis, Cerro Azul, Doutor Ulysses and Rio Branco(More)
