Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Previous cytogenetic studies in triatomines have described the occurrence of holokinetic chromosomes, heterochromatin distribution and the location of rDNA sites, but few aspects of nuclear organization in this group have been discussed. In this study, we focused on ultrastructural and cytogenetic features and differences in cystic cells of seminiferous tubules between five species of Triatoma. We noted that cystic cells show evidence of polyploidy events and that heterochromatic blocks appear predominantly in the central region of the nuclei. Cytogenetic analyses have shown that there is variation in chromocenter number between species and that the central regions are AT-rich (DAPI+) and the periphery CG-rich (CMA+). Another characteristic is the distribution of 45S rDNA, which differs according to the chromosomal location of this sequence. We compared aspects of nuclear organization, polyploidy, heterochromatin, rDNA sites distribution, and methylation levels, as well as the relationships between five species of Triatoma from a cystic cell perspective.
