The assumption of simple fusion in a group showing a constant number of chromosome arms was tested by comparison of the G-band patterns of chromosomes of three Phyllotis species. The karyotypes, each of which has 40 chromosome arms, have a 2n of 38, 38, and 40 and are made up of mostly metacentric chromosomes. Operational concepts describing the amount of matching in G-band patterns are proposed, separating chromosomes or arms into those with total correspondence, partial correspondence, or… CONTINUE READING
