Radiographic evaluation of cardiac silhouette using vertebral heart size method in squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciureus)
Background: The Saimiri sciureus represents a valuable resource for biomedical research, due to its large number on primate centers and similarity to human anatomy and physiology. The aim of this study was to apply the ...
Proposed chromosomal phylogeny for the South American primates of the Callitrichidae family (Platyrrhini)
Cytogenetic and cytotaxonomic studies (G, C, sequential G/C, and NOR banding) were performed on 110 specimens representing the four genera of South American primates of the family Callitrichidae: Cebuella (C. pygmaea), ...
Model for the fetal recruitment of simian γ‐globin genes based on findings from two new world monkeys Cebus apella and Callithrix jacchus (Platyrrhini, Primates)
The originally embryonic γ‐globin locus duplicated and acquired a novel (fetal) pattern of expression in a defined time period (55–40 million years ago) during primate phylogeny. The objective of this study was to determine ...
Uterine evaluation and gestation diagnosis in owl monkey (Aotus azarai infulatus) using the B mode ultrasound
BACKGROUND: Gynecological and obstetrical ultrasonography has become an indispensable tool in the routine management, health evaluation and research on captive non-human primates. METHODS: Ultrasound was used to evaluate ...
Ultrasonographic imaging of the reproductive tract and surgical recovery of oocytes in Cebus apella (capuchin monkeys)
Two-dimensional real-time and Doppler ultrasonography are valuable non-invasive methods to assess reproductive anatomy and physiology. In adult, postpubertal female Cebus apella (capuchin monkeys), the objectives were to ...
Biochemistry, Doppler echocardiography, and electrocardiography evaluation in captive owl monkeys (Aotus sp)
Background: The cardiovascular system of owl monkeys has been studied due to frequent postmortem findings of heart disease in asymptomatic animals. The silent aspect and the difficulty of early diagnosis intensify the ...
