Abstract

In the last few decades, there have been great efforts to reconstruct the phylogeny of Neoaves based mainly on DNA sequencing. Despite the importance of karyotype data in phylogenetic studies, especially with the advent of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) techniques using different types...

Abstract

Here, for the first time, we describe the karyotype of Myiopsitta monachus (Psittacidae, Arini). We found 2n=48, corresponding to the lowest diploid number observed in Neotropical Psittaciformes so far, with an uncommonly large W chromosome homomorphic to the Z. In order to better understand the...

Abstract

Canid species (dogs and foxes) have highly rearranged karyotypes and thus represent a challenge for conventional comparative cytogenetic studies. Among them, the domestic dog is one of the best-mapped species in mammals, constituting an ideal reference genome for comparative genomic study. Here we...

Abstract

Avian genome organisation is characterised, in part, by a set of microchromosomes that are unusually small in size and unusually large in number. Although containing about a quarter of the genome, they contain around half the genes and three quarters of the total chromosome number. Nonetheless,...

Abstract

Evolutionary cytogenetics can take confidence from methodological and analytical advances that promise to speed up data acquisition and analysis. Drastic chromosomal reshuffling has been documented in birds of prey by FISH. However, the available probes, derived from chicken, have the limitation of ...

Abstract

Genome-wide homology maps among stone marten (Martes foina, 2n=38), domestic cat (Felis catus, 2n=38), American mink (Mustela vison, 2n=30), yellow-throated marten (Martes flavigula, 2n=40), Old World badger (Meles meles, 2n=44), ferret badger (Melogale moschata, 2n=38) and red panda (Ailurus...

Abstract

In order to deduce the ancestral genome arrangement in the karyotypically diverse marsupial family Macropodidae, and to assess chromosome change in this family, chromosome-specific paints from the tammar wallaby (2n=16) were hybridized to metaphase spreads from the two species proposed to represent ...

Abstract

The Rattini (Muridae, Murinae) includes the biologically important model species Rattus norvegicus (RNO) and represents a group of rodents that are of clinical, agricultural and epidemiological importance. We present a comparative molecular cytogenetic investigation of ten Rattini species...

Abstract

Complete sets of chromosome-specific painting probes, derived from flow-sorted chromosomes of human (HSA), Equus caballus (ECA) and Equus burchelli (EBU) were used to delineate conserved chromosomal segments between human and Equus burchelli, and among four equid species, E. przewalskii (EPR), E....

Abstract

Chromosome-specific paints from macrochromosomes 1-9 and Z of the chicken were hybridised to metaphases of the red-legged partridge and revealed no inter-chromosomal rearrangements. The results from chromosome painting are similar to previous studies on the Japanese quail but different from...
