Genetic differentiation of six subspecies of the house mouse Mus musculus (Mus musculus musculus, M. m. domesticus, M. m. castaneus, M. m. gansuensis, M. m. wagneri, and M. m. ssp. (bactrianus?) was examined using RAPD-PCR analysis. In all, 373 loci of total length of about 530 kb were identified. Taxonspecific molecular markers were detected and the levels(More)
'Robertsonian fan' is a term, introduced by R. Matthey (1970), for characterizing species with broad variation o f the diploid number (2n) but constant fundamental number (NF), as a result o f Robertsonian translocations. Until recently, a Robertsonian fan was known for African mice of the genus Mus, subgenus Leggada in which variation of the diploid number(More)
Genetic differentiation and gene geographic variation of house mouse from the territory of Russia and neighboring countries was examined based on the allozyme analysis of samples from natural, semisynanthropic, and obligate synanthropic populations. The results of analysis of genetic differentiation, performed using 22 interpreted loci, as well as the data(More)
Genetic diversity and geographic distribution of taxon-specific RAPD markers was examined in ten local populations of the house mouse Mus musculus (n = 42). The house mice were generally characterized by moderate genetic variation: polymorphism P 99 = 60%, P 95 = 32.57%; heterozygosity H = 0.12; the observed allele number n a = 1.6; the effective allele(More)
The genetic structure of eight Mus musculus L. populations in Primorskii krai was studied with the use of taxon-specific markers of different inheritance systems: nDNA (RAPD), mtDNA (D-loop), and chromosomes. The results obtained demonstrate that although the compared nuclear marker characteristics (nDNA and chromosomes) have the same basis they are not(More)
The intraspecific and interspecific differentiations of voles of the Russian Far East with respect to allozymic and karyotypic characteristics have been studied. The morphologically similar but karyotypically different species Microtus oeconomus, M. fortis, M. maximowiczii, and M. sachaliensis are characterized by considerable allozymic differentiation. In(More)
Recently a great amount of factual material in the field of mammalian karyology has accumulated. From the descriptions of karyotypes of several specimens modern cytogeneticists proceeded to study chromosomal variability at the population level. This direction was first stimulated by the discovery of chromosomal polymorphism in Sorex araneus (Ford et al.,(More)
Cytogenetic and allozyme differentiation of house mice Mus musculus L. was studied in 21 samples of Primorskii krai (region) from 1984 to 1998. The use of Q-H- and C-banding made it possible to reveal a high variation in the content and distribution of pericentromeric heterochromatin and high frequencies of marker autosomes 5, 7, 10, 12, 15, and 17-19 in(More)
House mice carrying aberrant chromosome 1 with an insertion of homogeneously stained regions (HSR) have been studied. The mice were collected in the North Caucasus, Chita and Amur oblasts, Spitzbergen and Kunashir Islands, Altai krai, Khabarovsk krai, Primorye, Sakhalin, Kamchatka, Turkmenistan, and Kazakhstan. In these mice, the aberrant chromosomes were(More)
