Karyotype and meiosis analysis of four species of Cameroonian Pyrgomorphidae (Orthoptera)

  In this article, the karyotypic features (chromosome number, morphology, size and length and length of X chromosome), and meiosis in Atractomorpha lata, Dictyophorus griseus,Taphronota thaelephora and Zonocerus variegatus (Orthoptera: Pyrgomorphidae: Pyrgomorphinae) were analysed in order to determine similarities and differences amongst them. All four species were...

Interaction between angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) insertion/deletion and aldosterone synthase (CYP11B2) -344C/T polymorphisms in relation to type 2 diabetes mellitus risk in Emiratis

  Polymorphism in Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System (RAAS) genes have been studied extensively in various ethnic groups and largely with inconsistent findings on relationship with the risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). In this study, we investigated the association of Insertion/Deletion (I/D) polymorphism of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) and -344 C/T polymorphism of aldosterone...
