A genus in the subfamily CALLITRICHINAE, comprising a single species with the common name Goeldi's monkey.
Method to determine the occurrence of OVULATION by direct or indirect means. Indirect methods examine the effects of PROGESTERONE on cervical mucus (CERVIX MUCUS), or basal body temperature. Direct ovulation detection, generally used in fertility treatment, involves analyses of circulating hormones in blood and ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
A subfamily in the family CEBIDAE that consists of four genera: CALLITHRIX (marmosets), CALLIMICO (Goeldi's monkey), LEONTOPITHECUS (lion tamarins), and SAGUINUS (long-tusked tamarins). The members of this family inhabit the tropical forests of South and Central America.

Centromere repositioning. (1/3)

Primate pericentromeric regions recently have been shown to exhibit extraordinary evolutionary plasticity. In this paper we report an additional peculiar feature of these regions that we discovered while analyzing, by FISH, the evolutionary conservation of primate phylogenetic chromosome IX. If the position of the centromere is not taken into account, a relatively small number of rearrangements must be invoked to account for interspecific differences. Conversely, if the centromere is included, a paradox emerges: The position of the centromere seems to have undergone, in some species, an evolutionary history independent from the surrounding markers. A significant number of additional rearrangements must be proposed to reconcile the order of the markers with centromere position. Alternatively, the evolutionary emergence of neocentromeres can be postulated.  (+info)

First outbreak of callitrichid hepatitis in Germany: genetic characterization of the causative lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus strains. (2/3)

Callitrichid hepatitis (CH) is a highly fatal, rodent-borne zoonosis of New World primates (family Callitrichidae) caused by lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV). It is unclear whether virulence in Callitrichidae is associated with specific genetic or phylogenetic markers of the virus as only a partial S RNA sequence of a single CH-associated isolate is known. In a period of 10 months, three pygmy marmosets (Cebuella pygmaea) and one Goeldi's monkey (Callimico goeldii) died from CH in a German zoo. LCMV was most likely transmitted by wild mice. Infection was associated with characteristic histopathological lesions in liver, brain, and lymphoid tissue. Virus sequences from all callitrichids and a captured mouse were > or =99.2% identical. LCMV strains from a pygmy marmoset and the Goeldi's monkey were isolated in cell culture and the 3.4-kb S RNA was completely sequenced. Both strains differed considerably in their genetic and phylogenetic characteristics from known LCMV strains, including the previously described CH-associated strain. These data show that CH is widespread and can be caused by distantly related LCMV strains.  (+info)

Determination of ovarian cycle in Goeldi's monkey (Callimico goeldii) via the measurement of steroids and peptides in plasma and urine. (3/3)

Goeldi's monkey (Callimico goeldii) is an endangered species of New World primate. The present study provides the first description of the non-conception ovarian cycle in this species based on circulating reproductive steroid and peptide hormones. The data obtained were used to validate a non-invasive system for monitoring cyclicity based on urinary reproductive steroid metabolites. Nine sexually mature females were studied. In three females, matched blood and urine samples were collected once every 2-3 days for 90-120 days; in three other females, matched blood and urine samples were collected daily for 14-20 days for one peri-ovulatory period; and in the remaining three females, urine samples only were collected once every 1-3 days for 40-60 days. Plasma progesterone, oestrone-3-conjugates and bioactive LH were measured, in addition to urinary pregnanediol-3 alpha-glucuronide and oestrone-3-conjugates. The mean maximum concentration of plasma LH occurred 1-2 days before a significant rise in plasma progesterone, which was considered to occur 1 day after ovulation. On the basis of plasma progesterone titres, the duration of the ovarian cycle was estimated as 23.9 +/- 0.4 days (n = 9), and constituted a follicular phase of 10.7 +/- 0.3 days and a luteal phase of 13.5 +/- 0.3 days. Urinary pregnanediol-3 alpha-glucuronide demonstrated a high correlation with plasma progesterone (r = 0.8), and demonstrated a significant rise at the same time as plasma progesterone.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)  (+info)

"Callimico" is a genus name in the family Callitrichidae, which includes various species of small, New World monkeys. The specific species that falls under this genus is "Callimico goeldii," also known as Goeldi's marmoset or Goeldi's monkey.

Goeldi's marmosets are native to the western Amazon Basin in South America, particularly in regions of Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. They have a distinctive appearance with a body size of about 8-12 inches long and weighing around 10-14 ounces. They have a brownish or grayish fur coat, with a naked face that has a white stripe running from the corner of their eyes to the corners of their mouths.

Goeldi's marmosets are omnivorous and feed on fruits, insects, small vertebrates, and exudates from trees. They are known for their highly social behavior, living in groups of 2-15 individuals. They have a complex communication system that includes vocalizations, facial expressions, and body postures.

In summary, "Callimico" is the genus name for Goeldi's marmoset, a small New World monkey species native to the western Amazon Basin in South America.

Ovulation detection refers to the process of identifying the time period during which an ovary releases an oocyte (mature egg) from its follicle, ready for fertilization. This is a crucial aspect of reproductive health and assisted reproduction technologies (ART), such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).

There are several methods to detect ovulation, including:

1. Ovulation Predictor Kits (OPKs): These are home-use test kits that detect the surge of luteinizing hormone (LH) in urine, which occurs 24-36 hours prior to ovulation.
2. Basal Body Temperature (BBT) Charting: This involves tracking and recording daily basal body temperature (the lowest temperature attained by the body during rest), as it tends to rise slightly after ovulation due to increased progesterone levels.
3. Hormonal Monitoring: Blood tests can be used to measure hormone levels, such as estrogen and progesterone, throughout a menstrual cycle to detect ovulation.
4. Transvaginal Ultrasound: This imaging technique is often used in clinical settings to monitor follicular development and determine the exact time of ovulation by observing changes in the ovarian follicle and endometrial lining.
5. Saliva Ferning Tests: A microscope is used to examine the patterns formed by dried saliva, which can indicate increased estrogen levels prior to ovulation.

Accurate ovulation detection helps individuals or couples trying to conceive optimize their chances of success and provides valuable information for healthcare providers in managing reproductive health issues.

Callitrichinae is a subfamily of New World monkeys that includes marmosets and tamarins. These small primates are known for their claw-like nails (called "tegulae"), which they use for grooming and climbing, as well as their small size and social behavior. They are native to the forests of Central and South America. Some notable species in this subfamily include the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) and the golden lion tamarin (Leontopithecus rosalia).
