The analysis of the distribution of repetitive DNA of the B chromosomes of Podisma sapporensis in the A and B chromosomes of the natural populations and in A chromosomes of three other species of the Podismini grasshoppers were made. DNA-libraries of the B chromosome and the euchromatic segment of the A chromosome of P. sapporensis were generated by meiotic chromosome microdissection followed by degenerated oligonucleotide primed polymerase chain reaction (DOP-PCR). Paints based on these DNA… 
Chromosomal Localization of Ribosomal and Telomeric DNA Provides New Insights on the Evolution of Gomphocerinae Grasshoppers
TLDR
Most remarkably, Chorthippus jacobsoni showed the presence of telomeric repeats in the pericentric regions of the 3 biarmed chromosome pairs originated by centric fusion, thus suggesting that these rearrangements were not of the Robertsonian type but true centic fusion with a probable generation of dicentric chromosomes.
Comparative FISH analysis of distribution ofB chromosome repetitive DNA in A an d B chromosomes in two subspecies of Podisma sapporensis (Orthoptera, Acrididae)
TLDR
FISH analysis of B chromosome repetitive DNA distribution in A and B chromosomes of two subspecies of Podisma sapporensis was performed and the only common region enriched with these B chromosome repeats in both subspecies was the X chromosome pericentromeric region.
B Chromosomes in Free-Living Flatworms of the Genus Macrostomum (Platyhelminthes, Macrostomorpha)
TLDR
The cytogenetic analysis revealed the divergence and high variation in large metacentric chromosomes (LMs) containing numerous regions enriched for repeats in species of the Macrostomum genus that underwent a recent whole-genome duplication (WGD).
Sex chromosome diversity in Armenian toad grasshoppers (Orthoptera, Acridoidea, Pamphagidae)
TLDR
It is concluded that the different stages of neo-Y degradation revealed in the Pamphagidae species studied make the family a very promising and useful model for studying sex chromosome evolution.
Cytogenetic markers reveal a reinforcement of variation in the tension zone between chromosome races in the brachypterous grasshopper Podisma sapporensis Shir. on Hokkaido Island
TLDR
It was concluded that the physical mapping of rDNA sequences and heterochromatin are useful as additional markers for understanding the phylogeographic patterns of cytogenetic differentiation in P. sapporensis populations.
B Chromosomes in Grasshoppers: Different Origins and Pathways to the Modern Bs
TLDR
It is suggested that Bs in grasshoppers could arise through different mechanisms and from different chromosomes of the main set, based on the findings of the Eyprepocnemis plorans specimens with autosome containing numerous intercalary repeat clusters.
Exploring Supernumeraries - A New Marker for Screening of B-Chromosomes Presence in the Yellow Necked Mouse Apodemus flavicollis
TLDR
The B-marker showed 98% sequence identity with the serine/threonine protein kinase VRK1 gene, similarly to findings reported for Bs from phylogenetically highly distant mammalian species, which substantiate the origin ofBs from the standard chromosomal complement.
Meiotic study of Acrida turrita (Linnaeus 1758), Paracinema luculenta Karsch 1896 and Morphacris fasciata (Thunberg 1815) (Orthoptera: Acrididae)
TLDR
The lacto-propionic orcein squash technique was used to prepare chromosome smears from the testes of specimens collected in May 2009 from the premises of the Institute for Rural Development Batoke, Limbe, in the South West Region of Cameroon, and revealed that the three species have the basic Acrididae complement consisting of 23 acrocentric chromosomes.
How Next-Generation Sequencing Has Aided Our Understanding of the Sequence Composition and Origin of B Chromosomes
TLDR
This review summarizes the progress in understanding B chromosome biology enabled by the application of next-generation sequencing technology and state-of-the-art bioinformatics and draws a contrast between a direct sequencing approach and a strategy based on a comparative genomics as alternative routes that can be taken towards the identification of B chromosome sequences.
