Karyotype and spermatogenesis in Triatoma lenti (Hemiptera: Triatominae), a potential Chagas vector
(Genetics and Molecular Research, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
All species of Triatominae are susceptible to infection by Trypanosoma cruzi (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatidae) and consequently, potential insect vectors of Chagas disease. Currently, there are 140 known species of ...
Karyotype of Triatoma melanocephala Neiva and Pinto (1923). Does this species fit in the Brasiliensis subcomplex?
(Infection, Genetics and Evolution, 2012-12-01) [Artigo]
Triatoma melanocephala is a rare species of Hemiptera that belongs to the Brasiliensis subcomplex. This subcomplex is composed of cryptic species, and the basic number of chromosomes for triatomines of this subcomplex is ...
Spermatogenesis in Triatoma melanocephala (Hemiptera: Triatominae)
(Genetics and Molecular Research, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
Triatoma melanocephala is a rare species of Hemiptera. It belonged to the Brasiliensis subcomplex and presents morphological characteristics very close to those of Triatoma vitticeps. We investigated spermatogenesis of T. ...
Spermatogenesis in Triatoma williami Galvao, Souza and Lima (1965) (Hemiptera, Triatominae)
(Invertebrate Reproduction & Development, 2014-04-03) [Artigo]
Cytogenetics has proven to be an important tool in the study of triatomine taxonomy. Triatoma williami is a triatomine that has been classified within the Matogrossensis subcomplex. In this study, the cytogenetic technique ...
Heteropyknotic filament in spermatids of Triatoma melanocephala and T. vitticeps (Hemiptera, Triatominae)
(Invertebrate Reproduction & Development, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
The species Triatoma melanocephala and T. vitticeps are vectors of Chagas disease in Brazil. An analysis of the number of chromosomes has led to the proposal of the exclusion of both these species and T. tibiamaculata from ...
Cytotaxonomy of the Brasiliensis subcomplex and the Triatoma brasiliensis complex (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae)
(Zootaxa, 2014-07-22) [Artigo]
We analyzed the classical cytotaxonomy of the Brasiliensis subcomplex (Triatoma brasiliensis Neiva, T. juazeirensis Costa & Felix, T. melanica Costa, Argolo & Felix, T. melanocephala Neiva & Pinto, T. petrochiae Pinto & ...
