Chromosome numbers, sex determining systems, and patterns of the C-heterochromatin distribution in 13 species of lace bugs (Heteroptera, Tingidae).
The karyotypes, sex chromosome systems, and male meiotic patterns in 13 species belonging to 10 genera of the family Tingidae were studied. Data on eleven species, one subgenus, and 5 genera areExpand

Bed bug cytogenetics: karyotype, sex chromosome system, FISH mapping of 18S rDNA, and male meiosis in Cimex lectularius Linnaeus, 1758 (Heteroptera: Cimicidae)
Bugs (Insecta: Heteroptera) are frequently used as examples of unusual cy- togenetic characters, and the family Cimicidae is one of most interest in this respect. We have performed a cytogeneticExpand

Karyotypes, male meiosis and comparative FISH mapping of 18S ribosomal DNA and telomeric (TTAGG) n repeat in eight species of true bugs (Hemiptera, Heteroptera)
Abstract Eight species belonging to five true bug families were analyzed using DAPI/CMA3-staining and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) with telomeric (TTAGG)n and 18S rDNA probes. StandardExpand

Patterns of chromosome banding in four nabid species (Heteroptera, Cimicomorpha, Nabidae) with high chromosome number karyotypes.
Male Nabis (Aspilaspis) indicus (Stål), N. (A.) viridulus Spinola, Himacerus (Himacerus) mirmicoides (O. Costa) (2n=32+XY) and Prostemma guttula (Fabricius) (2n=26+XY) were studied using C-banding,Expand

Cytogenetics of the true bug infraorder Cimicomorpha (Hemiptera, Heteroptera): a review
Abstract The Cimicomorpha is one of the largest and highly diversified infraorders of the Heteroptera. This group is also highly diversified cytogenetically and demonstrates a number of unusualExpand

Achiasmatic male meiosis in Myrmedobia coleoptrata(Fn.) (Heteroptera, Microphysidae)
Abstract Mitosis and male meiosis were studied in Myrmedobia coleoptrata (Fn.), (Heteroptera,Microphysidae). Spermatogonial metaphase revealed 14 chromosomes (2n=12 + XY).The nucleolar organizingExpand

First evidence for (TTAGG)n telomeric sequence and sex chromosome post-reduction in Coleorrhyncha (Insecta, Hemiptera)
Abstract Telomeric repeats are general and significant structures of eukaryotic chromosomes. However, nothing is known about the molecular structure of telomeres in the enigmatic hemipteran suborderExpand

The first finding of (TTAGG)n telomeric repeat in chromosomes of true bugs (Heteroptera, Belostomatidae)
Abstract Using the fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), the presence of (TTAGG)n telomeric sequence was detected in the chromosomes of Lethocerus patruelis (Stål, 1854) belonging to the familyExpand

Cytogenetic characterization of the Trinidad endemic, Arachnocoris trinitatus Bergroth: the first data for the tribe Arachnocorini (Heteroptera: Cimicomorpha: Nabidae).
As an extension of the ongoing cytogenetic studies of the bug family Nabidae (Heteroptera: Cimicomorpha), the first evidence for the tribe Arachnocorini (the subfamily Nabinae), with reference to theExpand

First evidence of sex chromosome pre-reduction in male meiosis in the Miridae bugs (Heteroptera).
The karyotype and male meiosis of Macrolophus costalis Fieber (Insecta, Heteroptera, Miridae) were studied using C-banding, AgNOR-banding and DNA sequence specific fluorochrome staining. TheExpand
