Differential expression of trypsin-3 and phosrestin II genes in the main malaria vector, Anopheles darlingi, from the Brazilian Amazon region

Authors: Ohse, K.C, Matiolli, C.C, Scarpassa, V.M, Santos, V. S, Tadei, W. P, Rafael, M. S

Anopheles darlingi is the most anthropophilic mosquito related to Plasmodium infection of malaria, causing significant morbidity and mortality in South America. Pyrethroid chemical has been used to control mosquitos. We analyzed the expression of trypsin-3 and phosrestin II genes implicated to feeding and resistance to insecti.. Read More»

Molecular phylogenetic relationships among members of the family Phytolaccaceae sensu lato inferred from internal transcribed spacer sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA

Authors: J. Lee, S.Y. Kim, S.H. Park and M.A. Ali

The phylogeny of a phylogenetically poorly known family, Phytolaccaceae sensu lato (s.l.), was constructed for resolving conflicts concerning taxonomic delimitations. Cladistic analyses were made based on 44 sequences of the internal transcribed spacer of nuclear ribosomal DNA from 11 families (Aizoaceae, Basellaceae, Didiereaceae, Molluginaceae, Nyctagin..

Genetic diversity and relationships among accessions of five crested wheatgrass species (Poaceae: Agropyron) based on gliadin analysis

Authors: S.Y. Chen, X. Ma, X.Q. Zhang, L.K. Huang and J.N. Zhou

Agropyron Gaertn. is the most important genus in Triticeae (Poaceae), which includes many forage grasses with high economic value. The genetic diversity and relationships of 36 accessions from five crested wheatgrass species were analyzed by gliadin markers. A total of 54 product bands were detected after acid polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (A-PAGE), .. Read More»

Application of 16S rRNA, cytochrome b and control region sequences for understanding the phylogenetic relationships in Oryx species

Authors: H.A. Khan, I.A. Arif, A.A. Al Homaidan and A.H. Al Farhan

The present study reports the application of mitochondrial markers for the molecular phylogeny of Oryx species, including the Arabian oryx (AO), scimitar-horned oryx (SHO) and plains oryx (PO), using the Addax as an outgroup. Sequences of three molecular markers, 16S rRNA, cytochrome b and a control region, for the above four taxa were aligned and the top.. Read More»

Genetic relationships among Heliconia (Heliconiaceae) species based on RAPD markers

Authors: L.P. Marouelli, P.W. Inglis, M.A. Ferreira and G.S.C. Buso

The family Heliconiaceae contains a single genus, Heliconia, with approximately 180 species of Neotropical origin. This genus was formerly allocated to the family Musaceae, but today forms its own family, in the order Zingiberales. The combination of inverted flowers, a single staminode and drupe fruits is an exclusive charact.. Read More»

Genetic diversity and classification of Tibetan yak populations based on the mtDNA COIII gene

Authors: Q.Q. Song, Z.X. Chai, J.W. Xin, S.J. Zhao, Q.M. Ji, C.F. Zhang, Z.J. Ma and J.C. Zhong

To determine the level of genetic diversity and phylogenetic relationships among Tibetan yak populations, the mitochondrial DNA cytochrome c oxidase subunit 3 (COIII) genes of 378 yak individuals from 16 populations were analyzed in this study. The results showed that the length of cytochrome c oxidase subunit 3 gene sequences was 781 bp, with nucleotide .. Read More»

Isolation and characterization of microsatellite markers for Dendranthema morifolium (Asteraceae) using next-generation sequencing

Authors: W.J. Yuan, S. Ye, L.-H. Du, S.-M. Li, X. Miao and F.-D. Shang

Dendranthema morifolium (Asteraceae) is a perennial herbaceous plant native to China. A long history of artificial crossings may have resulted in complex genetic background and decreased genetic diversity. To protect the genetic diversity of D. morifolium and enabling breeding of new D. morifolium cultivars, we developed a set.. Read More»

Complete mitochondrial genome of the Cyclemys dentata and phylogenetic analysis of the major family Geoemydidae

Authors: Y.N. Huang, J. Li, Q.Y. Jiang, X.S. Shen, X.Y. Yan, Y.B. Tang, J. Huang, Y.F. Guo, G.Q. Lan and H.S. Jiang

In the present study, the complete mitochondrial (mt) genome of Cyclemys dentata was determined using PCR reactions. The structural organization and gene order of C. dentata were equivalent to those of most other vertebrates. The mt genome was 16,489 bp in length, has rich A+T content, consisting of 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes, 22 trans.. Read More»

Molecular characterization and phylogenetic relationships among species of the genus Brycon (Characiformes: Characidae) from four hydrographic basins in Brazil

Authors: R.S.P. Antunes, V.N. Gomes, S.M.A.P. Prioli , R.A. Prioli, H.F. Júlio Jr., L.M. Prioli, C.S. Agostinho and A.J. Prioli

Brycon is one of the main genera of Neotropical freshwater fish. In Brazil, Brycon species have been found in many hydrographic basins, such as the Amazon, Paraná, Paraguay, and Araguaia-Tocantins basins. We examined the phylogenetic relationships among the species Brycon orbignyanus, B. hilarii, B. cf. pesu, B. cephalu.. Read More»

Use of fluorescent-based amplified fragment length polymorphism to resolve phylogenetic relationships of Colchicum species from Turkey

Authors: Ö. Karakaş Metin, M. Türktaş, F. Ertuğrul and E. Kaya

The study of phylogenetic relationships between 14 Colchicum taxa spread throughout Turkey was performed using a fluorescent-based amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) technique. Five primer pair combinations were used in AFLP reactions. The data set was analyzed statistically using the NTSYS 2.1 software, and the nei.. Read More»
