This paper summarizes the works published by author and his co‐workers in the Russian journal Tsitologiya concerning endopolyploidy in mollusks and appraises this phenomenon in general. Both ontogenetic and phylogenetic aspects of endopolyploidy have been studied. In the snail Succinea lauta, a complex examination of endomitosis has been performed. A regular replacement of the normal (complete) proliferative mitosis by abnormal (incomplete) restitutional mitosis, and then by Geitler's classic… Expand
The distribution pattern of endopolyploidy in maize
TLDR
It is discovered that endopolyploidization is common in various organs and tissues of maize at different development stages, and 8 candidate genes that participate in cell cycle regulation and DNA replication were uncovered in 119 maize inbred lines. Expand
Endoreduplication and fruit growth in tomato: evidence in favour of the karyoplasmic ratio theory.
TLDR
Investigation using tomato fruit development as a model provided new data in favour of the long-standing karyoplasmic ratio theory, stating that cells tend to adjust their cytoplasmic volume to the nuclear DNA content. Expand
Endopolyploidy as a potential driver of animal ecology and evolution
TLDR
It is argued that endopolyploidy is likely to play a central role in key traits such as gene expression, body and cell size, and growth rate and in a variety of cell types, including those responsible for tissue regeneration, nutrient storage, and inducible anti‐predator defences. Expand
Changes in the endopolyploidy pattern of different tissues in diploid and tetraploid Phalaenopsis aphrodite subsp. formosana (Orchidaceae).
TLDR
The relationships between endopolyploidization and several factors related to plant growth are discussed, as well as some practical considerations of these findings. Expand
Mitotic catastrophe and endomitosis in tumour cells: An evolutionary key to a molecular solution
TLDR
The role of endomitosis in the somatic reduction of polyploidy during development and its postulated role in the evolution of meiosis are reviewed and incorporated to help interpret the most recent observations in the tumour cell system. Expand
Hepatic endopolyploidy as a cellular consequence of age-specific selection for rate of development in mice.
TLDR
This work searches for endopolyploidy in the liver in response to age-specific restricted index selection for the rate of development in mice, finding lines selected for divergence in early growth and late growth are divergent in frequency of polyploid cells. Expand
The morphofunctional characterization and ploidy levels of the digestive gland cells in prosobranch gastropod mollusks (Prosobranchia: Gastropoda) with special reference to somatic polyploidy
TLDR
Cases of somatic polyploidy in basophilic cells are considered as adaptive modifications of histogenesis associated with the peculiarities of the environment (intensified metabolism in osmotically tolerant Littorina and Lottia species), the duration of ontogenesis, and a specific diet. Expand
Endoreplication: A Molecular Trick during Animal Neuron Evolution
TLDR
The available data about endoreplication in invertebrate and vertebrate neurons is reviewed, its possible functional significance is discussed, and a sort of molecular trick used by neurons in response to the high functional demands that they experience during evolution is reviewed. Expand
Endocycles: a recurrent evolutionary innovation for post-mitotic cell growth
TLDR
In endoreplication cell cycles, cells successively replicate their genomes without segregating chromosomes during mitosis and thereby become polyploid, which allows for the construction of very large cells or enhance macromolecular secretion. Expand
Cell Cycle Modification in Trophoblast Cell Populations in the Course of Placenta Formation
TLDR
Polyploidy in Vertebrata suggests that propagation of vertebrates is, probably, due to an advantage of the mitotic cycle that involves a machinery of accurate reproduction of diploid cells over other cell reproduction cycles that result in polyploidization. Expand

Investigating the hows and whys of DNA endoreduplication.
TLDR
It is suggested that endoreduplication requires nothing more elaborate than a loss of M-phase cyclin-dependent kinase activity and oscillations in the activity of S-phase cycling kinase. Expand
Endopolyploidy: Towards an understanding of its biological significance
TLDR
The conclusion is that these properties of the endopolyploid state have a potential that opens possibilities for new paths of development and serves as a factor upon which natural selection can operate. Expand
Role of Polyploidy in Reproductive Organs and Tissues
TLDR
After more than 30 years of research on the nuclear cytology of differentiated tissues, it is now clear that the “supernumerary chromonemal reproduction” at interphase, better called “chromosome endoreduplication” (Levan and Hauschka 1953), is the commonest and most widespread process of cell polyploidization in both plants and animals.

Roads to polyploidy: The megakaryocyte example
TLDR
Overall, polyploidy is associated with an orchestrated change in expression of several genes, of which, some may be a result of high ploidy and hence a determinant of a new cell physiology, while others are inducers ofpolyploidization. Expand
Endomitosis: A reappraisal
TLDR
Observations on three organisms show that functionally at least two fundamentally different types of endomitosis exist, although morphologically the stages resemble each other in the three organisms. Expand

TLDR
The insertion of 3H-thymidine and3H-uridine into the nuclei and the light microscopy control of nuclear ploidy allowed to identify glands on early and intensive polyploidization stages and to ignore pseudoendomitotic terminally differentiated cells. Expand

TLDR
The results obtained corroborate once again that endomitosis is a real endoreproductive mechanism, and allow to make distinctions between real endomItosis and pseudoendomitotic nuclei. Expand

TLDR
Endomitosis can be defined as a real phase of the cell cycle and is in agreement with dynamics and speed of DNA and RNA synthesis during cell polyploidization and differentiation. Expand

TLDR
The study of general morphology of chromatin and chromocenters at normal condition and at artificial compactization enabled us to exclude any probability of polyteny in the CNS of lauta. Expand

TLDR
A model is proposed that unifies the aspects of DNA variation, chromatin structure, and diversification in ontogenesis and phylogenesis, seen as evidence supporting the paradigm of a "fluid" or dynamic organization of the eukaryotic genome, as being part of a cybernetic feedback regulation system of gene expression.
