The pioneering use of ISSR (Inter Simple Sequence Repeat) in Neotropical anurans: Preliminary assessment of genetic diversity in populations of Physalaemus cuvieri (Amphibia, Leiuperidae)
(Biological Research, 2013-06-17) [Artigo]
The greatest diversity of anurans in the world is in Brazil and one of the major challenges is to reconcile the accelerated economic development with strategies that aim to maintain this diversity in forest fragments, often ...
The advertisement call of dendropsophus tritaeniatus (Bokermann, 1965) (Anura: Hylidae)

Genetic and biochemical markers of hydroxyurea therapeutic response in sickle cell anemia
(Bmc Medical Genetics, 2013-10-09) [Artigo]
Background: Sickle cell anemia (SCA) presents a complex pathophysiology which can be affected by a number of modifying factors, including genetic and biochemical ones. In Brazil, there have been no studies verifying ...
Spermatogenesis of Zaprionus indianus and Zaprionus sepsoides (Diptera, Drosophilidae): Cytochemical, structural and ultrastructural characterization
(Genetics and Molecular Biology, 2013-03-18) [Artigo]
Zaprionus indianus is a drosophilid native to the Afrotropical region that has colonized South America and exhibits a wide geographical distribution. In contrast, Z. sepsoides is restricted to certain African regions. The ...
Heteropterys tomentosa (A. Juss.) infusion counteracts Cyclosporin a side effects on the ventral prostate
(BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 2013-02-13) [Artigo]
Background: Cyclosporin A (CsA) is an immunosuppressive drug widely used in treatment of auto-immune diseases or after organ transplants. However, several side effects are commonly associated with CsA long term intake, ...
New species of Tenuipalpus (Acari: Tenuipalpidae) from Semidecidual Forest remnants in the State of São Paulo, Brazil
(Zootaxa, 2013-09-24) [Artigo]
Three new species of the genus Tenuipalpus (Acariformes: Tenuipalpidae), T. tapiae sp. nov., T. apichai sp. nov., and T. nambii sp. nov. collected in Semidecidual Forest native plants in the northwest of the state of São ...
Maternal obesity disturbs the postnatal development of gonocytes in the rat without impairment of testis structure at prepubertal age
(Reproduction, 2013-12-01) [Artigo]
In this study, we evaluated whether maternal obesity (MO) affects testis development and gonocyte differentiation in the rat from 0.5 to 14.5 postnatal days. Male Wistar rats were used at 0.5, 4.5, 7.5, and 14.5 days post ...
True branched nostocalean cyanobacteria from tropical aerophytic habitats and molecular assessment of two species from field samples
(Revista de Biologia Tropical, 2013-03-01) [Artigo]
Aerophytic cyanobacteria are commonly found growing on rocks, tree trunks and soil, but the diversity of these organisms is still poorly known. This complex group is very problematic considering the taxonomic arrangement ...
Community structure of mites (Arachnida: Acari) in six rubber tree clones
(International Journal of Acarology, 2013-12-01) [Artigo]
Host plant cultivar may determine the occurrence and abundance of both herbivorous arthropods and of other species that interact with them. We analysed the acarofauna in six rubber tree clones to identify the effect of ...
Morphometric and bioacoustic data on three species of Pseudopaludicola Miranda-Ribeiro, 1926 (Anura: Leptodactylidae: Leiuperinae) described from chapada dos guimarães, mato Grosso, Brazil, with the revalidation of pseudopaludicola ameghini (Cope, 1887)
(Zootaxa, 2013-03-05) [Resenha]
Due to minute size, overall morphological similarities, scarcity of diagnostic characters after preservation, and usual sympatric or even syntopic occurrence of two or more species of Pseudopaludicola, the taxonomy of the ...
