Multidirectional cross-species painting illuminates the history of karyotypic evolution in Perissodactyla
TLDR
The first genome-wide comparative chromosome maps of African rhinoceroses, four tapir species, four equine species, and humans are reported, revealing a striking switch between the slowly evolving ceratomorphs and extremely rapidly evolving equids.
Comparative analysis of mammalian Y chromosomes illuminates ancestral structure and lineage-specific evolution.
TLDR
This work presents the first MSY (male-specific region of the Y chromosome) sequences from two carnivores, the domestic dog and cat, and identifies multiple conserved noncoding elements that potentially regulate eutherian MSY genes.
Cross-species chromosome painting among camel, cattle, pig and human: further insights into the putative Cetartiodactyla ancestral karyotype
TLDR
A Cetartiodactyla ancestral karyotype is proposed and a genome-wide comparative chromosome map of human/pig/cattle is constructed to facilitate the positional cloning of genes by aiding the cross-species transfer of mapping information.
Phylogenomics of the genus Mus (Rodentia; Muridae): extensive genome repatterning is not restricted to the house mouse
TLDR
By integrating closely related species within Mus, this study unambiguously resolve for the first time the long-standing controversial phylogeny and trace the evolution of genome organization in the house mouse.
Refined genome-wide comparative map of the domestic horse, donkey and human based on cross-species chromosome painting: insight into the occasional fertility of mules
TLDR
Based on the hybridization results, genome-wide comparative chromosome maps involving the domestic horse, donkey and human are generated that define the overall distribution and boundaries of evolutionarily conserved chromosomal segments in the three genomes.
Karyotype evolution and phylogenetic relationships of hamsters (Cricetidae, Muroidea, Rodentia) inferred from chromosomal painting and banding comparison
TLDR
Based on results of chromosome painting and G-banding, comparative maps between 20 rodent species have been established and demonstrate a high level of karyotype conservation among species in the Cricetus group with Tscherskia as its sister group.
A time- and cost-effective strategy to sequence mammalian Y Chromosomes: an application to the de novo assembly of gorilla Y.
TLDR
A much faster and more affordable strategy for sequencing and assembling mammalian Y Chromosomes of sufficient quality for most comparative genomics analyses and for conservation genetics applications is presented and is used to reconstruct sex chromosomes in a heterogametic sex of any species.
Chromosome homologies of the highly rearranged karyotypes of four Akodon species (Rodentia, Cricetidae) resolved by reciprocal chromosome painting: the evolution of the lowest diploid number in
TLDR
The results indicate that all those closely related species have experienced a recent extensive process of autosomal rearrangement in which, except for ASP, there is still complete conservation of sex chromosomes homologies.
Reassessment of genome size in turtle and crocodile based on chromosome measurement by flow karyotyping: close similarity to chicken
TLDR
The data suggest that a common ancestor of birds, turtles and crocodiles had a small genome size and a chromosomal size-dependent GC bias, distinct from the squamate lineage.
Chromosomal evolution of Arvicolinae (Cricetidae, Rodentia). III. Karyotype relationships of ten Microtus species
TLDR
It is proposed that the ancestral Microtus species had a 2n = 54 karyotype, including two associations of field vole chromosomal segments (MAG 1/17 and 2/8) and further mapping of the chromosome rearrangements onto a molecular phylogenetic tree allows the reconstruction of a karyotypes evolution pathway in the MicroTus genus.
