It seems probable that there are more species (in the sense of sharply diagnosable entities) than hitherto recognized among small Asian primates, and contrasting to some degree with larger-sized taxa. This presumably relates to their lesser vagility and consequent reduced potential for gene-flow. Even where some gene-flow can be demonstrated, as betweenNycticebus coucang andN. bengalensis, this appears to be very limited and does not affect the essential homogeneity and diagnosability of the… Expand
Taxonomy of the Bornean Slow Loris, With New Species Nycticebus kayan (Primates, Lorisidae)
TLDR
Differing facemask patterns, particularly influenced by the amount of white on the face, significantly clustered together by geographic regions, separated by notable geographic boundaries support the recognition of four species of Bornean lorises. Expand
Unexpected diversity of slow lorises (Nycticebus spp.) within the Javan pet trade: implications for slow loris taxonomy
Since the 1950s, Sundaland (Borneo, Java, Sumatra and their surrounding islands) was thought to be inhabited by a single slow loris species, the greater slow loris Nycticebus coucang. EarlyExpand
The Genera and Species of Tarsiidae
TLDR
The taxonomy of the primate family Tarsiidae is revised, and neither Cephalopachus nor Carlito has been the subject of anywhere near as much field research as has Tarsius; thus it is questioned if the currently accepted α taxonomy for these genera is based on knowledge or ignorance. Expand
Elucidating geological and biological processes underlying the diversification of Sulawesi tarsiers
TLDR
This study exemplifies that the distribution of tarsier acoustic forms on Sulawesi is consistent with the allocation of genetic variability and that plate-tectonic and glacial events have left traceable marks in the biogeography of this island's unique fauna. Expand
Molecular Phylogenetics and Chronometrics of Tarsiidae Based on 12S mtDNA Haplotypes: Evidence for Miocene Origins of Crown Tarsiers and Numerous Species within the Sulawesian Clade
TLDR
This work reports new mitochondrial DNA sequence data from tarsiers sampled from several populations, including the extreme northeast and southwest of the range of the Tarsius tarsier species complex, the most extensive sampling ever reported for this taxon, and produces the first ever molecular chronometric analysis of Tarsiidae. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny of Nycticebus Inferred from Mitochondrial Genes
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny covering all recognized taxa in Nycticebus was established to provide information for further evaluation and provided good evidence for regarding N. c. Expand
Tarsius wallacei: A New Tarsier Species from Central Sulawesi Occupies a Discontinuous Range
TLDR
Morphologically, the new species is similar to other Sulawesi lowland tarsiers and can be distinguished from its congeners via a characteristic duet song and its yellow-brown pelage coloration and a copper-colored throat. Expand
Phylogenetic relationship among slender loris species (Primates, Lorisidae: Loris) in Sri Lanka based on mtDNA CO1 barcoding
TLDR
The results of the study have provided the first DNA barcoding analysis on slender lorises in Sri Lanka to resolve phylogenetic relationships and revealed 2 clades with high branch supports (>60%), consistent with the 2 slender loris species. Expand
Potential Rediscovery of a Distinct Slow Loris Nycticebus (Mammalia: Strepsirrhini: Lorisidae) from Pulau Tioman
TLDR
It is recommended that future studies consider the taxonomic status of remote and isolated Nycticebus populations given the possibility that they may represent distinct and unrecognised taxa. Expand
Conservation implications of low encounter rates of five nocturnal primate species (Nycticebus spp.) in Asia
TLDR
The data suggest that slow lorises occur at low abundances throughout much of their range, and some in larger social groups than previously assumed. Expand

Epidermal type I transglutaminase (TGM1) is assigned to human chromosome 14.
TLDR
It is demonstrated using somatic cell hybrids that the human epidermal type I transglutaminase gene (gene symbol is designated TGM1) is located on human chromosome 14, providing evidence that at least two human transglUTaminases are encoded by separate genes. Expand
