We hybridized whole human chromosome-specific DNA libraries to chromosomes of two supposed subspecies ofAlouatta seniculus: Alouatta seniculus sara andAlouatta seniculus arctoidea. The number of hybridization signals per haploid set is 42 inA. s. sara and 43 inA. s. arctoidea; the two karyotypes differ by at least 16 chromosomal rearrangements, including numerous translocations. An unusual sex chromosome system is shared by both taxa. The sex chromosome system results from a Y translocation… CONTINUE READING
