The Suidae and the Dicotylidae (or Tayassuidae) are related mammalian families, both belonging to the artiodactyl suborder Suiformes, which diverged more than 37 million years ago. Cross-species chromosome painting was performed between the domestic pig (Sus scrofa; 2n = 38), a representative of the Suidae, and two species of the Dicotylidae: the collared peccary (Tayassu tajacu; 2n = 30) and the white-lipped peccary (T. pecari; 2n = 26). G-banded metaphase chromosomes of the two peccaries were… CONTINUE READING

For this difference between the Dicotylidae and the Suidae , a number of explanations are being postulated : 1 ) the extant peccaries are phylogenetically less closely related than is usually assumed ; 2 ) the peccary genome is less stable than the genome of the pigs ; and 3 ) special ( e.g. biogeographical or biosocial ) circumstances have facilitated the fixation of chromosome rearrangements in ancestral dicotylid populations .
