Chromosome numbers of two sucking louse species (Insecta, Phthiraptera, Anoplura).
Sper ma to gen esis is of unique type with sev eralmitoti c divisions afte r the first meiot ic division result-ing in the fo rm ation of cysts with functio nal and non-functia nal OOter tiary. Expand
Holocentric chromosomes of psocids (Insecta, Psocoptera) analysed by C-banding, silver impregnation and sequence specific fluorochromes CMA3 and DAPI.
The pattern of nucleolus attachment and C-heterochromatin distribution and molecular composition in the karyotypes of psocid species Psococerastis gibbosa (2n = 16+X), Blaste conspurcata (2n = 16+X)Expand
Chromosome numbers in eight species of Palaearctic Psocoptera (Insecta)
Karyotypes of eight Psocoptera species are reported for the first time and all the data available on psocopteran karyotypes are tabulated and shortly reviewed. Expand
First karyotype data on the family Myerslopiidae (Hemiptera, Auchenorrhyncha, Cicadomorpha)
Abstract In the first cytogenetic study of the recently proposed family Myerslopiidae the male karyotype of Mapuchea chilensis (Nielson, 1996) was analyzed using conventional chromosome staining,Expand
Automictic and apomictic parthenogenesis in psocids (Insecta: Psocoptera).
Karyotypes and meiosis patterns in three obligatory thelytokous Psocoptera species have been studied for the first time and it is found that meiosis in these species is of the apomictic type. Expand
Karyotypes, B-chromosomes and meiotic abnormalities in 13 populations of Alebra albostriella and A. wahlbergi (Hemiptera, Auchenorrhyncha, Cicadellidae) from Greece
This study represents the first chromosomal record for the genus Alebra and one of the few population-cytogenetic studies in the Auchenorrhyncha. Expand
Cytogenetic characterization of periodical cicadas (Hemiptera: Cicadidae: Magicicada)
Comparative cytogenetic study of all seven Magicicada species, and 6 of them were explored for the first time, confirmed to contain the "insect type" motif of telomeres (TTAGG)n. Expand
Fabrication of oxidized bacterial cellulose by nitrogen dioxide in chloroform/cyclohexane as a highly loaded drug carrier for sustained release of cisplatin.
The unique structure and properties of OBC make it a great candidate as drug delivery carrier and the cytotoxicity of CDDP-loaded OBC was evaluated with HeLa cells. Expand
Variability of 18rDNA loci in four lace bug species (Hemiptera, Tingidae) with the same chromosome number
Tingidae share absence of the (TTAGG)n telomeric sequence with all so far studied taxa of the advanced true bug infraorders Cimicomorpha and Pentatomomorspha. Expand
Biodegradable pH-sensitive prospidine-loaded dextran phosphate based hydrogels for local tumor therapy.
Investigations of antitumor efficiency in vivo showed that administration of DP-Pr hydrogels in comparison with an aqueous solution of Pr results in the increase of antitUMor activity, prolongation of therapeutic action and growth of a number of animals cured. Expand
