Comparison of isozymic and muscle protein in three taxa of Leuciscus from northern Italy
TLDR
This study confirms that L. lucumonis is a valid species that inhabits also Adriatic drainage basins and provides conclusive evidence that it is not originated by hybridization, and genetic data fully support the hypothesis of a sharp divergence of L. souffia from congeneric taxa.
The chromosome complement of the hybrid Bacillus whitei complex (Insecta phasmatodea). I : The paleo- and neo-standard karyotypes
TLDR
C-positive satellites and corresponding Ag-NOR, are found on a wide array of chromosomes, mostly reflecting those of both parental species, but also on new locations, but rather useful in short-term comparisons.
The Chromosome Complement of the Hybrid Bacillus whitei Complex (Insecta Phasmatodea)
TLDR
This study analyzes cytotypes of the hybrid Bacillus whitei complex and suggests their derivation from the standard “paleo” -karyotype mainly through Robertsonian fissions of the largest chromosomes and a few heterozygous translocations.
Ag-detected NOR and C-banding patterns in Bacillus rossius (Insecta Phasmatodea) from Sicily
TLDR
The Giemsa karyotype of Sicilian Bacillus rossius, belonging to both bisexual and unisexual demes, has been defined and comparative Ag-NOR and C-banding pattern analyses have revealed that in bisexuals NOR sites are fewer, have constant localizations and always are heterozygous for their activity, while in unisexuals NORs and the associated C-bands are more numerous, variably localized and always homozygous.
The trihybrid genome constitution of Bacillus lynceorum (Insecta Phasmatodea) and its karyotypic variations.
TLDR
The present study substantially amends the first karyotype description of the double-allotriploid thelytokous Bacillus lynceorum and analyzes in detail the chromosomal rearrangements to trace their most likely derivation.
Egg to adult identification of 13 freshwater fishes from Italy: a biochemical-genetic key
TLDR
It is reported on the occurrence of species-specific allozymic patterns, consistent from eggs to adults, which allowed the construction of a biochemical-genetic key for the identification of all stages of 13 freshwater fishes, mainly cyprinids native to the North Mediterranean region.
First Description of Two Genetic Loci in Leuciscus cephalus (Cyprinidae) from Italy
TLDR
The electromorphs of mitochondrial aspartate aminotransferase (mAAT) and fumarate hydratase (FH) in larvae and in different adult tissues of Leuciscus cephalus suggest that these enzymes are coded by two loci each, at variance of available literature data on cyprinids, in which a single structural locus is known to code the mAAT and FH enzymes.
Comparative Analysis of Glucosephosphate Isomerase, Lactate Dehydrogenase and Malate Dehydrogenase Isozymes in 9 Cyprinid Species from Italy
TLDR
Genetic structure comparisons support a high genetic divergence of T. tinca from all other species and patterns of expression obtained generally agree with literature data.
