Mini Review: Presence of Cytoplasmic Organelle Chromatoid Body in Class Insecta

Kaio Cesar Chaboli Alevi, Nayara Fernanda da Costa Castro and Maria Tercília Vilela de Azeredo Oliveira

In the present work we made a review on the cytoplasmic organelle chromatoid body (CB) in the Insecta class. We note that the CB has been described in 14 orders of insects. However, we emphasize the importance of new orders should be analyzed, since the detailed knowledge of the reproductive biology of insects may help in understanding taxonomic, evolutionary and mainly contribute to the development of tools that minimize the populations of vectors and insect pests, contributing directly to human welfare.
