The whitefly Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) is a cryptic species complex that contains some of the most damaging pests in tropical and subtropical regions. Recent studies suggested that this complex is composed of at least 24 distinct species. We use the approach from these studies to consider the identity of B. tabaci in Argentina.(More)
Most evidence about nonrandom association of alleles at different loci, or gametic disequilibrium, across extensive anonymous regions of the human genome is based on the analysis of overall disequilibrium between pairs of microsatellites. However, analysis of interallelic associations is also necessary for a more complete description of disequilibrium.(More)
The development of the theory of estimation of gametic disequilibrium for multiallelic systems is particularly necessary, since a large number of the genetic markers available at present are highly polymorphic multiallelic systems. The D' coefficient is one of the most commonly used measures of the extent of overall disequilibrium between all possible pairs(More)
Thorny-headed acanthocephalan worms of the genus Profilicollis are widely distributed in the oceans of the world and present complex life cycles with intermediate and definitive hosts. The genus is still poorly known, with an unstable taxonomy and, for most species, incompletely characterized geographical distributions. In this study, based on molecular and(More)
This study shows that consideration of minor bands (heteroduplex, shadow, and faint bands) associated with allele bands in nondenaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) after polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is effective for detecting PCR processing errors that lead to mistyping of heterozygotes as homozygotes. Notably, we show that minor bands in(More)
High Plains wheat mosaic virus (HPWMoV) has recently been assigned to genus Emaravirus and is the causal agent of High Plains disease. In this work the geographical distribution and first molecular detection of HPWMoV in Argentina are reported. The virus was detected in six provinces and nine hosts, including wheat, corn, oat and barley, as well as weeds,(More)
The synthesis of simple imidazolium-based ligand precursors containing a 1,3-alkylidene-2,4,6-trimethylbenzene spacer was examined and different synthetic protocols were applied depending on the nature of the alkylidene arm. For a methylene arm, simple dications 5a,b.2CI were obtained directly. The higher homologue counterparts were conveniently prepared by(More)
Resolving complex life cycles of parasites is a major goal of parasitological research. The aim of this study was to analyse the life cycle of two species of the genus Profilicollis, the taxonomy of which is still unstable and life cycles unclear. We extracted individuals of Profilicollis from two species of crustaceans (intermediate hosts) and four species(More)
The direct chemical functionalization of poly(spirophosphazene) [NP(O2 C12 H8 )]n (1) can be performed by the lithiation of the aromatic rings at low temperature using Schlosser's base (Lit Bu/KOt Bu or "superbase"), and the subsequent reaction with various electrophiles such as ClSiMe3 , ClPPh2 , or MeOB(O2 C6 H12 ) (MeOBpin). The functionalized(More)
