A surface-spreading synaptonemal complex (SC) technique was employed to analyze spermatocytes and oocytes of stickleback, Gasterosteus aculeatus, in order to visualize the process of chromosome synapsis. The mean SC length was 150 ± 18 μm in three males and 143 ± 12 μm in one female analyzed. A representative SC karyotype with 21bivalents was also(More)
A method of preparing two-dimensional surface spreads of plant synaptonemal complexes (SCs) associated with fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) has been applied to analyze the location and organization of five different highly repeated DNA sequences in rye. Our observations indicate that, depending on the type of sequence, the chromatin displays(More)
The anthocyanin-rich extract (ARE) of the fruit from Pourouma cecropiifolia , a tropical plant native to the Amazon region, showed moderate cytotoxicity toward different cancer cell lines when evaluated by MTT assays. This extract was fractionated using Sephadex LH-20 chromatography to obtain three fractions (F1-F3), the composition of which was analyzed by(More)
Volatile extracts from pulp, peels, leaves, and seeds of champa (Campomanesia lineatifolia R. and P.) were obtained by continuous liquid-liquid extraction with pentane/dichloromethane (1:1), and their chemical composition was determined by using HRGC and HRGC-MS. Differences between C. lineatifolia volatile extracts with regard to the identified compounds(More)
Some Alliaceae species have no tandemly repeated TTTAGGG sequences. Instead, at the very end of their chromosomes, there are highly repetitive satellite and (or) rDNA sequences. These sequences apparently replace the canonical plant telomeric sequences in these species. A method of preparing two-dimensional surface spreads of plant synaptonemal complexes(More)
