karyotypic evolution and phylogenetic relationships in the order chiroptera as revealed by g-banding comparison and chromosome painting.bats are a unique but enigmatic group of mammals and have a world-wide distribution. the phylogenetic relationships of extant bats are far from being resolved. here, we investigated the karyotypic relationships of representative species from four families of the order chiroptera by comparative chromosome painting and banding. a complete set of painting probes derived from flow-sorted chromosomes of myotis myotis (family vespertilionidae) were hybridized onto metaphases of cynopterus sphinx (2n = ...200717310301
karyotype evolution in rhinolophus bats (rhinolophidae, chiroptera) illuminated by cross-species chromosome painting and g-banding comparison.rhinolophus (rhinolophidae) is the second most speciose genus in chiroptera and has extensively diversified diploid chromosome numbers (from 2n = 28 to 62). in spite of many attempts to explore the karyotypic evolution of this genus, most studies have been based on conventional giemsa staining rather than g-banding. here we have made a whole set of chromosome-specific painting probes from flow-sorted chromosomes of aselliscus stoliczkanus (hipposideridae). these probes have been utilized to esta ...200717899409
comparative chromosome painting of four siberian vespertilionidae species with aselliscus stoliczkanus and human probes.vespertilionidae is the largest chiropteran family that comprises species of different specialization and wide geographic distribution. up to now, only a few vespertilionid species have been studied by molecular cytogenetic approaches. here, we have investigated the karyotypic relationships of 4 vespertilionidae species from siberia by g-banding and comparative chromosome painting. painting probes from aselliscus stoliczkanus were used to establish interspecific homologous chromosomal segments i ...201121709413
prevalence and genetic characterization of toxoplasma gondii infection in bats in southern china.toxoplasma gondii can infect a wide variety of warm-blooded animals, including bats. limited information on t. gondii infection in bats is available in china. the objective of the present study was to determine prevalence and genetic diversity of t. gondii infection in bats in southern china. a total of 608 bats representing 12 species, including 120 aselliscus stoliczkanus, 59 myotis chinensis, 11 miniopterus schreibersii, 53 rhinolophus affinis, 32 rhinolophus pusillus, 81 hipposideros armiger ...201424813744
parallel sites implicate functional convergence of the hearing gene prestin among echolocating mammals.echolocation is a sensory system whereby certain mammals navigate and forage using sound waves, usually in environments where visibility is limited. curiously, echolocation has evolved independently in bats and whales, which occupy entirely different environments. based on this phenotypic convergence, recent studies identified several echolocation-related genes with parallel sites at the protein sequence level among different echolocating mammals, and among these, prestin seems the most promisin ...201424951728
molecular characterization of cryptosporidium in bats from yunnan province, southwestern china.the present study was conducted to investigate the prevalence and genotypes of cryptosporidium in bats. a total of 247 bats, belonging to rhinolophus sinicus , rousettus leschenaultia, aselliscus stoliczkanus , and hipposideros fulvus , were collected in yunnan province, southwestern china, and the intestinal tissues were examined for cryptosporidium infection by pcr amplification of the small subunit ribosomal rna (ssu rrna). the overall infection rate was 7.7% (95% ci, 4.5 to 11.0%), with r. s ...201323886252
molecular characteristics and evolution of the mitochondrial control region in three genera (hipposideridae: hipposideros aselliscus and coelops) of leaf-nosed bats.the mitochondrial control region (cr) was sequenced for three genera of hipposideridae to give a detailed overview of its features. the cr of leaf-nosed bats (1288-1560 bp) was divided into three domains like that of other mammals. in addition to the common conserved blocks (etas1, etas2, f-b boxes, csb1, csb2, and csb3) found in all species, a csb1-like element was also detected in the conserved sequence blocks (csb). repeated motifs were examined in the etas of aselliscus stoliczkanus (26 bp) ...201323406568
karyotypic evolution in family hipposideridae (chiroptera, mammalia) revealed by comparative chromosome painting, g- and c-banding.comparing to its sister-family (rhinolophidae), hipposideridae was less studied by cytogenetic approaches. only a few high-resolution g-banded karyotypes have been reported so far, and most of the conclusions on the karyotypic evolution in hipposideridae were based on conventional giemsa-staining. in this study, we applied comparative chromosome painting, a method of choice for genome-wide comparison at the molecular level, and g- and c-banding to establish comparative map between five hipposide ...201020979246
genetic evolution analysis of 2019 novel coronavirus and coronavirus from other species.the corona virus disease 2019 (covid-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (sars-cov-2) is a public health emergency of international concern. however, so far, there are still controversies about the source of the virus and its intermediate host. here, we found the novel coronavirus was closely related to coronaviruses derived from five wild animals, including paguma larvata, paradoxurus hermaphroditus, civet, aselliscus stoliczkanus and rhinolophus sinicus, and was in th ...202032169673

đakrông virus, a novel mobatvirus (hantaviridae) harbored by the stoliczka's asian trident bat (aselliscus stoliczkanus) in vietnam.the recent discovery of genetically distinct shrew- and mole-borne viruses belonging to the newly defined family hantaviridae (order bunyavirales) has spurred an extended search for hantaviruses in rnalater®-preserved lung tissues from 215 bats (order chiroptera) representing five families (hipposideridae, megadermatidae, pteropodidae, rhinolophidae and vespertilionidae), collected in vietnam during 2012 to 2014. a newly identified hantavirus, designated đakrông virus (dkgv), was detected in one ...201931308502
