The genus Phyllomedusa has been the target of regular taxonomic investigations. The species Phyllomedusa nordestina was recently separated from P. hypochondrialis. Morphological variations in the P. rohdei interpopulation have already been reported, suggesting the existence of more than one taxon under that name. In the present study, we have(More)
Scinax species are still underrepresented in cytogenetic studies, mainly with respect to populations from northeastern and northern Brazil. In this study, we provide new chromosomal information on Scinax boesemani, S. camposseabrai, S. garbei, S. pachycrus, S. trilineatus and S. x-signatus, all belonging to clade S. ruber. They were collected at two(More)
Scinax Wagler, 1830 is a species-rich genus of amphibians with relatively few detailed chromosomal reports. In this work, cytogenetic analyses of Scinaxauratus (Wied-Neuwied, 1821) and Scinaxeurydice (Bokermann, 1968) were carried out based on conventional (Giemsa staining, Ag-NOR and C-banding) and cytomolecular (base-specific fluorochrome staining and(More)
Hylidae is one of the most species-rich families of anurans, and 40% of representatives in this group occur in Brazil. In spite of such remarkable diversity, little is known about this family and its taxonomical and systematic features. Most hylids have 2n = 24, even though most of the cytogenetic data are mainly obtained based on the conventional(More)
Clinical success of ceramic laminate veneers depends on material selection, bonding procedures, controlled laboratory steps, and enamel preservation. Enamel preservation is the most critical because excessive tooth preparation can expose dentin reducing bond strength, which is a factor that can cause a decrease in long-term clinical success. The proposed(More)
We report a cytogenetic analysis of three Pristimantis fenestratus frog populations of the Amazon region in Brazil. The specimens were sampled in Borba and Manaus, Amazonas State, and in Rio Branco, Acre State. They were analyzed using Giemsa, silver staining, C-banding and FISH with rDNA probes. The karyotypes of the three populations revealed 2n = 34(More)
A recent substantial rearrangement of the 882 described eleutherodactyline frog species has considerably improved the understanding of their systematics. Nevertheless, many taxonomic aspects of the South American eleutherodactyline species remain unknown and require further investigation using morphological, cytogenetic and molecular approaches. In this(More)
Aggressive periodontitis (AgP) is an inflammatory disease characterized by rapid attachment loss and bone destruction. This case report presents the 10-year results in a subject with generalized AgP treated by a regenerative periodontal therapeutic approach and the adjunctive use of antibiotics, following a systematic maintenance periodontal therapy. The(More)
BACKGROUND The presence of interproximal papilla depends on the distance between the contact point to the bone crest, as well as the mesio-distal distance between implants or between implants and teeth. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of buccal-palatal bone width on the presence of the interproximal papilla between adjacent implants in(More)
Ten polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated for Physalaemus cuvieri from a GA—CA enriched library. In 160 P. cuvieri individuals, the number of alleles per locus ranged to 2–9 and the expected heterozygosity ranged from 0.30 to 0.85. The primers were successfully cross-amplified in the congeneric species P. albonotatus, P. ephippifer and Physalaemus(More)
