Journal of Applied Oral Science , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S1678-77572006000500016
Abstract: objective: the purpose of the present pilot study was to describe pain complaints of tmd patients and cervical spine dysfunction. methods: fourteen women with myogenous tmd, cervical motion limitation and rotation of at least one of the three first cervical vertebrae evidenced by radiographic examination participated in this study. the multidimensional pain evaluation was accomplished by a brazilian version of the mcgill pain questionnaire. results: the results showed that the most painful body site mentioned was cervical spine, followed by scapular region and temporomandibular joint. more than half of the volunteers reported temporal pain pattern as rhythmic, periodic and, or still, intermittent. the majority of the patients classified the pain intensity assessed at the moment of the evaluation as mild to discomforting. absolute agreement was not observed among volunteers regarding word dimensions used to describe their pain, although a great number of patients chose the descriptor related to tension as the better expression to describe their painful complaint. conclusion: pain characteristics of tmd patients with cervical spine dysfunction showed cervical spine as a common painful region reported and words related to affective and emotional dimensions of pain perception can be used by these patients to qualify their pain complain.

Interspecific chromosomal divergences in the genus Characidium (Teleostei: Characiformes: Crenuchidae)
Alves, José Carlos Pansonato;Paiva, Luiz Ricardo de Souza;Oliveira, Claudio;Foresti, Fausto;
Neotropical Ichthyology , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1679-62252010000100010
Abstract: karyotypes of seven fish species of the genus characidium, three of them studied for the first time, were characterized using conventional cytogenetic techniques (giemsa staining, ag-nor, and c-banding). all species presented a diploid number of 2n=50, with only metacentric and submetacentric chromosomes, as observed in all characidium species studied. in two species cells with one to three b chromosomes were observed. all species analyzed have a single nor-bearing chromosome pair with morphological differences among them. characidium cf. zebra shows heterochromatic blocks restricted to the pericentromeric regions of all chromosomes denoting the absence of a sex chromosome system. on the other hand, the species characidium lanei, c. pterostictum, c. lauroi, c. oiticicai, c. schubarti, and characidium sp., besides presenting pericentromeric heterochromatic blocks, exhibited large interstitial and/or terminal heterochromatic blocks, and a zz/zw sex chromosome system. the constitutive heterochromatin seems to play a relevant role in the chromosome differentiation process of the studied species, mainly in relation to the sex chromosomes. the geographical isolation of the rivers in which the species were sampled, associated with their way of life restricted to headwaters environments, may have favored the process of fixation of different karyotypes found in each of the analyzed species.
Identification and description of distinct B chromosomes in Cyphocharax modestus (Characiformes, Curimatidae)

Abstract: cytogenetic analyses were performed in cyphocharax modestus, collected at paranapanema river and tietê river (s?o paulo state, brazil). a karyotype with 2n = 54 chromosomes was observed in the animals from both brazilian freshwater river systems. one to four b chromosomes were also detected in individuals from the paranapanema river, which represents the probable first report of more than a single supernumerary element in a species of the curimatidae group. c-banding revealed centromeric and telomeric heterochromatin blocks in several chromosomes of the normal karyotype complement of c. modestus. moreover, while some b chromosomes were characterized by the complete absence of c-bands, others were totally heterochromatic. although there was a prevalence of b chromosomes in males of c. modestus, at least one supernumerary element was found in males and/or females of several other populations of the species, which suggests that the presence of these chromosomes seems to represent a general trait of c. modestus. a possible origin of the described b chromosomes may be related to the occurrence of a chromosome non-disjunction followed by the loss of euchromatic segments, an event that should have occurred in chromosomes that present conspicuous centromeric heterochromatic blocks and even in chromosomes that lack c-bands in this region, resulting in small supernumerary elements.

Abstract: the 5s ribosomal dna (5s rdna) of higher eukaryotes is organized in repeat units of tandem arrays composed of a 5s rdna coding region, conserved even among non-related taxa, and a variable non-transcribed spacer sequence (nts). to contribute to knowledge on the organization and evolution of vertebrate 5s rdna we used pcr, nucleotide sequencing, southern blot hybridization and chromosome fluorescence in situ hybridization (fish) to investigate 5s rdna tandem repeats in the south american curimatidae fish steindachnerina insculpta and cyphocharax modesta. 5s rdna repeats of 180 base pairs (bp) from both species were pcr-generated and sequenced evidencing the shortest 5s rdna monomer so far described in eukaryote species. southern blotting revealed that both species contained two tandem 5s rdna classes, the pcr amplified fragment composed of 180 bp monomers and a class of 1600 bp monomers not detected by pcr. chromosome mapping of the 5s rdna repeats identified a major locus in both species and a second minor locus only in c. modesta. the southern blot and chromosome mapping data indicate the presence of different types of 5s rdna tandem repeats in the curimatidae genome.

Genetics and Molecular Biology , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1415-47572009005000075
Abstract: catfishes of the genus pseudoplatystoma are very important species due to both their high commercial value and their ecological role as voracious predators. they undertake lengthy migratory movements during their life-cycle, this including reproductive migration which occurs from october to december in the rainy season. in the present study, seven microsatellite loci were analyzed to access genetic variability in two samples of p. reticulatum from the upper paraguay basin. the loci were highly polymorphic (mean = 7.28). according to all analysis, the two samples of p. reticulatum revealed pronounced genetic differentiation. fst value was 0.2290, rst value 0.1067 and amova 22.90% (fst) and 10.67% (rst), all being highly significant (p < 0.001). the division of the fishes into two groups was confirmed by microsatellite multi-locus bayesian assignment testing. the results obtained present evidence of genetic structuring in a p. reticulatum population.
