• The observed triploidy was 38.4%, because tiploid individuals are comprised of fewer cells, with DNA content of triploids being 1.5 times the diploid level. (usgs.gov)
  • This same problem has been extensively experienced in diploid bivalve molluscs, where triploidy has since been applied as a means to prevent sexual maturation from occurring, thereby speeding up the growth process and shortening the time to marketing. (sun.ac.za)
  • Borkin L. J., Shabanov D. A., Brandler O. V., Kukushkin O. V., Litvinchuk S. N., Mazepa G.A., Rosanov J. M. A case of natural triploidy in European diploid green toad (Bufo viridis), with some distributional records of diploid and tetraploid toads // Russian Journal of Herpetology, 2007. (kharkov.ua)
  • This test also includes a limited 5 cell chromosome analysis to rule out triploidy, tetraploidy and rearrangements not detected by microarray such as balanced translocations and inversions. (bcm.edu)
  • Here we review the different types of triploidy following conventional in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection, as well as the mechanisms giving rise to digynic and dispermic fertilization. (ehu.es)
  • The signs and symptoms associated with triploidy vary but may include a variety of birth defects and an unusually small size. (cdc.gov)
  • The majority of fetuses that have triploidy die before birth and those that make it to term rarely survive the first six months of life. (verywellfamily.com)
  • Hydatidiform mole and triploidy: the role of genomic imprinting in placental development. (cngb.org)
  • Quadratic equations for predicting the actual triploidy percentage of a spawn using a pool of either 20 or 50 larvae. (usgs.gov)
  • In conclusion, additional treatments will allow to refine the protocols to obtain 100% of triploidy in tambaqui, particularly those from heat shocks. (medcrave.com)
  • Now that our research has further highlighted a reproductive threat from escaped farm salmon, perhaps it's time to put serious effort into developing triploidy as standard practice for salmon aquaculture, so that one of the many pressures facing wild Atlantic salmon stocks can be removed.
