Abstract Tandem arrays of TTAGG repeats show a highly conserved location at the telomeres across the phylogenetic tree of arthropods. In giant water bugs Belostoma, the chromosome number changed during speciation by fragmentation of the single ancestral X chromosome, resulting in a multiple sex chromosome system. Several autosome–autosome fusions and a fusion between the sex chromosome pair and an autosome pair resulted in the reduced number in several species. We mapped the distribution of… Expand
Detection of telomeric sequences and ribosomal RNA genes in holokinetic chromosomes of five jumping plant-lice species: First data on the superfamily Psylloidea (Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha)
TLDR
It is found that the chromosomes of all studied species contain the insect-type telomere motif, (TTAGG)n, and is speculated, based on the obtained FISH markers, on the mechanisms of karyotype evolution of psylloid species differing in chromosome numbers and sex chromosome systems. Expand
New evidence for the presence of the telomere motif (TTAGG) n in the family Reduviidae and its absence in the families Nabidae and Miridae (Hemiptera, Cimicomorpha).
TLDR
Increasing evidence reinforces the hypothesis of the loss of the canonical "insect" telomere motif (TTAGG)n by at least four cimicomorphan families, Nabidae, Miridae, Tingidae, and Cimicidae, for which data are currently available. Expand
A chromosomal analysis of Nepa cinerea Linnaeus, 1758 and Ranatra linearis (Linnaeus, 1758) (Heteroptera, Nepidae)
TLDR
The presence of the canonical “insect” (TTAGG)n telomeric repeat in chromosomes of these species is detected and the first application of C-banding and FISH in the family Nepidae is applied. Expand
Cytogenetic Characterization of Eight Odonata Species Originating from the Curonian Spit (the Baltic Sea, Russia) Using C-Banding and FISH with 18S rDNA and Telomeric (TTAGG)n Probes
TLDR
More work needs to be done to answer questions about the organization of telomeres in this very ancient and thus phylogenetically important insect order, and the possibility that in Odonata the canonical “insect” telomeric repeat is in fact present but in very low copy number and is consequently difficult to detect by in situ hybridization is raised. Expand
Peaceful revolution in genome size: polyploidy in the Nabidae (Heteroptera); autosomes and nuclear DNA content doubling
Genome size and the position of 18S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) were analysed in two Himacerus, eight Nabis and two Prostemma species from the family Nabidae using flow cytometry and fluorescence in situExpand
Rapid chromosomal evolution in the bush-cricket Gonatoxia helleri Hemp, 2016 (Orthoptera, Phaneropterinae).
TLDR
It is suggested that chromosomal translocations lead to diversification and speciation in this species and could be the driving force of adaptive radiation. Expand
New data on karyotypes of lace bugs (Tingidae, Cimicomorpha, Hemiptera) with analysis of the 18S rDNA clusters distribution
TLDR
The results obtained provide additional evidence for the karyotype conservatism, at least regarding the number of autosomes, for variation in chromosomal distribution of rDNA loci between species and for the lack of the ancestral insect telomeric sequence TTAGG in lace bugs. Expand
Chromosomal evolution in the bush-cricket Gonatoxia helleri
Gonatoxia helleri Hemp, 2016 is one of the most widespread bush-crickets of the genus Gonatoxia Karsch, 1889 in East Africa. This species with seven large chromosomes (2n♂ = 7) differs from otherExpand
Population-Based Cytogenetic Banding Analysis and Phylogenetic Relationships of the Neotropical Fungus-Farming Ant Trachymyrmex holmgreni Wheeler, 1925
TLDR
This study cytogenetically and genetically examines Trachymyrmex holmgreni populations from southern and northern Brazil to identify intraspecific chromosomal variations that support incipient speciation and reveal the species' position in a molecular phylogeny, and clarifies some phylogenetic uncertainties within the genus.

Distribution of the Major rDNA Loci among Four Hemipteran Species of the Family Tingidae (Heteroptera, Cimicomorpha)
TLDR
Male karyotypes of four lace bug species were analyzed for the first time using both conventional chromosome staining and FISH with 18S rDNA and telomeric (TTAGG)n probes. Expand

Karyotypes, male meiosis and comparative FISH mapping of 18S ribosomal DNA and telomeric (TTAGG) n repeat in eight species of true bugs (Hemiptera, Heteroptera)
TLDR
The insect consensus telomeric pentanucleotide (TTAGG)n was demonstrated to be absent in all the species studied in this respect, supporting the hypothesis that this motif was lost in early evolution of the Heteroptera and secondarily replaced with another motif (yet unknown) or the alternative telomerase-independent mechanisms of telomere maintenance.

First evidence for (TTAGG)n telomeric sequence and sex chromosome post-reduction in Coleorrhyncha (Insecta, Hemiptera)
TLDR
It is shown that Peloridium pomponorum displays 2n = 31 (30A + X) in males, the classical insect (TTAGG)n telomere organization and sex chromosome post-reduction during spermatocyte meiosis. Expand
Telomeric and interstitial telomeric sequences in holokinetic chromosomes of Lepidoptera: Telomeric DNA mediates association between postpachytene bivalents in achiasmatic meiosis of females
TLDR
Surprisingly, in early postpachytene nuclei the telomeric associations also involved ITS, whereas later postpachy Tenne nuclei displayed chains of bivalents interconnected only by true telomeres, which favours a hypothesis that telomersic associations between bivalent play a role in chromosome segregation in the achiasmatic meiosis of female Lepidoptera. Expand
Karyotype evolution in progress: A new diploid number in Belostoma candidulum (Heteroptera: Belostomatidae) from Argentina leading to new insights into its ecology and evolution
TLDR
The results obtained support the hypothesis that karyotype of B. candidulum originated through autosomal fusions and the fusion of the X and Y chromosomes with the ancestral NOR ­ autosomal pair and represent an excellent model for assessing the main mechanisms involved in the karyotypes evolution in organisms with holokinetic chromosomes. Expand
The presence of the ancestral insect telomeric motif in kissing bugs (Triatominae) rules out the hypothesis of its loss in evolutionarily advanced Heteroptera (Cimicomorpha)
TLDR
Next-generation sequencing data analysis on Triatoma infestans Klug, 1834 revealed the presence of the ancestral insect (TTAGG)n telomeric motif in its genome, contradicting the currently accepted hypothesis that evolutionarily recent heteropterans lack this ancestral insect telomersic sequence. Expand
Karyotype stability in the family Issidae (Hemiptera, Auchenorrhyncha) revealed by chromosome techniques and FISH with telomeric (TTAGG)n and 18S rDNA probes
TLDR
Several chromosomal traits in 11 species from 8 genera of the planthopper family Issidae, the tribes Issini, Parahiraciini and Hemisphaeriini are reported, suggesting that chromosomal rearrangements involving the rDNA segments occurred in the evolution of the family. Expand
Interstitial Telomeric Sequences (ITS) and major rDNA mapping reveal insights into the karyotypical evolution of Neotropical leaf frogs species (Phyllomedusa, Hylidae, Anura)
TLDR
It is proposed that the ITSs originated independently during the chromosomal evolution of these species and may provide important insights into the role of these repeats in vertebrate karyotype diversification. Expand
A New Approach to Chromosomal Evolution in the Giant Water Bug (Heteroptera: Belostomatidae)
TLDR
A new evolutionary hypothesis for the genus Belostoma is proposed, with an ancestral karyotype with a low diploid number, simple sex determination system, and nucleolus organizer regions (NORs) on the sex chromosomes. Expand
The significance of cytogenetics for the study of karyotype evolution and taxonomy of water bugs (Heteroptera, Belostomatidae) native to Argentina
TLDR
The hypothesis that all species of Belostoma with multiple sex chromosome systems preserve NORs in autosomal bivalents is supported and the karyotype analyses allow the cytogenetic characterization and identification of these species belonging to a difficult taxonomic group. Expand
TTAGG Telomeric Repeats in Chromosomes of Some Insects and Other Arthropods
TLDR
The results, which confirm and extend earlier observations, suggest that (TTAGG)n was a phylogenetically ancestral telomere motif in the insect lineage but was lost independently in different groups, being replaced probably by other telomeres motifs. Expand
