Onychostoma barbatulum and O. alticorpus, two primarily freshwater cyprinid fish, have similar morphological characters and partially overlapping ecological habitats. In order to explore the genetic differences between these two species, chromosomal characteristics and genetic variations were examined by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) of 5S rDNA and cytochrome (Cyt) b gene analysis. Ten specimens of O. barbatulum and O. alticorpus were collected from the Nanzihsian Stream in southern…

5S rDNA Sequence Shows Differences between Diploid and Triploid Prussian Carp Carassius gibelio (Teleostei, Cyprinidae)
The 5S rDNA variability detected in this study indicates the potential usefulness of this sequence for the identification of diploid and triploid individuals of the Prussian carp.
Cytogenetics of Two Onychostoma Species in Taiwan by Ag-NOR and 18S rDNA Profiles.
The results showed that the two Onychostoma species shared the same number of chromosomes, 2n = 50, and karyotypes of both species showed a pair of heteromorphic chromosomes in male fish, suggesting their sex determination should be the XX/XY system.
Analysis of Chromosomal Numbers, Mitochondrial Genome, and Full-Length Transcriptome of Onychostoma brevibarba
This study could provide many new insights into cytology and molecular characteristics of O. brevibarba and laid the foundation for further exploration of the genomic signatures of species of Onychostoma.

The mitochondrial results revealed an obvious differentiation of genetic structure of B. tsinlingensis between populations of Yellow River and Yangtze River, and the estimated diverge time around 0.20 MY was suggested.
Taxonomic Diversity Not Associated with Gross Karyotype Differentiation: The Case of Bighead Carps, Genus Hypophthalmichthys (Teleostei, Cypriniformes, Xenocyprididae)
It is demonstrated that two cytogenetic characters (distribution of constitutive heterochromatin and major rDNA) may be useful for diagnosis of pure species and the universality of these markers must be further verified by analyzing other pure populations of bighead carps.
Comparative Study on Hatching Rate, Survival Rate, and Feminization of Onychostoma barbatulum (Pellegrin, 1908) at Different Temperatures and Examining Sex Change by Gonad and Karyotype Analyses.
Rearing O. barbatulum fry at a proper water temperature can effectively increase the female sex ratio and maintain high hatchability and survival ratios, and can potentially be applied to produce a high proportion of female fry on aquaculture farms.


Chromosomal Location and Nucleotide Sequences of 5S Ribosomal DNA of Two Cyprinid Species (Osteichthyes, Pisces)
The non-transcribed spacer region elucidates the size difference of 5S rDNA between the two species and demonstrates karyotype evolution by tetraploidy seems complex in cyprinid species.
Phylogenetic relationships of silver crucian carp in Carassius auratus complex based on mtDNA analysis
The phylogenetic relationships of Carassius genus subspecies were investigated based on the data of the variability of nucleotide sequences of the mtDNA cytochrome b (cyt b) and control region (CR) and revealed five clusters of the congruent topologies that substantially corresponds to geographical localities and taxonomic conception of the C. auratus complex.
Molecular organization of 5S rDNA in fishes of the genus Brycon.
5S rDNA sequencing and chromosomal localization permitted the characterization of Brycon spp.
Chromosomal Localization of 5S rDNA Genes in Leporinus Fish (Anostomidae, Characiformes)
The large 45S rDNA chromosome sites have often been analyzed in fish. In contrast, little is known about the 5S genes in this animal group. In the genus Leporinus, the NOR chromosomal location has
Chromosomal diversification of reef fishes from genus Centropyge(Perciformes, Pomacanthidae)
It is demonstrated that, even within a group generally characterized by cytogenetical homogeneity as the family Pomacanthidae, diversified karyotypes can be found.
Genetic Diversity of Cyprinus carpio var. communis , Cyprinus carpio var. specularis and Carassius carassius by DNA Based Markers
The study showed RAPD marker efficiently helped in inter- and intra-species variation of the species and PCR- RFLP showed bias in detecting intraspecific variations, however, it was found an efficient tool for inter-specific variation between the species under study.
Karyological study of some cyprinid species from Ethiopia. The ploidy differences between large and small Barbus of Africa
It is believed that large Barbus of Africa constitute a monophyletic group and that this group has no sister-group relationships with any of the small Barbus in Africa.

The karyotype and chromosomal characteristics of the vulnerable species Onychostoma lini (Wu 1939) from China were studied by examining metaphase chromosome spreads obtained from kidney by providing first knowledge on karyotypes in OnyChostomaLini which may facilitate aquaculture, conservation practices of the species.
Environmental Biology of an Endemic Cyprinid, Varicorhinus alticorpus, in a Subtropical Mountain Stream of Taiwan
An endemic freshwater fish, Varicorhinus alticorpus, was studied from 1990 to 1993 in a fast flowing mountain stream in southern Taiwan (22°30'N, 120°30'E). The analysis of environmental conditions
