The great karyotypic differences between camel, cattle and pig, three important domestic animals, have been a challenge for comparative cytogenetic studies based on conventional cytogenetic approaches. To construct a genome-wide comparative chromosome map among these artiodactyls, we made a set of chromosome painting probes from the dromedary camel (Camelus dromedarius) by flow sorting and degenerate oligonucleotide primed-PCR. The painting probes were first used to characterize the karyotypes… 

Sequential Cross-Species Chromosome Painting among River Buffalo, Cattle, Sheep and Goat: A Useful Tool for Chromosome Abnormalities Diagnosis within the Family Bovidae

The successful hybridization on bovine secondary oocytes confirmed the potential use of this set of probes for the simultaneous identification on the same germ cell of 12 chromosome aneuploidies, allowing development of the first comparative M-FISH karyotype within the domestic ruminants.

Comparative Chromosome Mapping of Musk Ox and the X Chromosome among Some Bovidae Species

A detailed chromosome map of musk ox (Ovibos moschatus), a relic species originating from Pleistocene megafauna, is built with dromedary and human probes using chromosome painting to trace chromosomal rearrangements during Bovidae evolution by comparing species already studied by chromosome painting.

Development and application of camelid molecular cytogenetic tools.

This collection of cytogenetically mapped markers represents a new tool for camelid clinical cytogenetics and has applications for the improvement of the alpaca genome map and sequence assembly.

High-resolution chromosome painting reveals the first genetic signature for the chiropteran suborder Pteropodiformes (Mammalia: Chiroptera)

A subsequent survey across all major chiropteran families demonstrated that a paracentric inversion within this HSA 4 homologous segment could represent a synapomorphic character for the suborder Pteropodiformes.

Cross-species chromosome painting in Cetartiodactyla: Reconstructing the karyotype evolution in key phylogenetic lineages

This study demonstrates that the combined use of human and camel paints is highly informative for revealing evolutionary karyotypic rearrangements among cetartiodactyl species and apparently favour a model of non-random breakpoints in chromosome evolution.

A Comprehensive Whole-Genome Integrated Cytogenetic Map for the Alpaca (Lama pacos)

The first comprehensive whole-genome integrated cytogenetic map for the alpaca is developed using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and CHORI-246 BAC library clones and revealed remarkable evolutionary conservation of gene order within many human-camelid HSBs.

A cytogenetic and comparative map of camelid chromosome 36 and the minute in alpacas

A cytogenetic map for chr36 was constructed in the alpaca, llama, and dromedary and showed its homology to human chromosome 7 (HSA7) at 49.8–55.5 Mb, and it was confirmed that the minute chromosome was a derivative of chr 36, but the small size was not a result of a large deletion or a translocation.

Comparative chromosome painting of pronghorn (Antilocapra americana) and saola (Pseudoryx nghetinhensis) karyotypes with human and dromedary camel probes

The establishment of high-resolution comparative maps for pronghorn and saola has shed some new insights into the putative ancestral karyotype, chromosomal evolution and phylogenic relationships in Pecora.

Multidirectional cross-species painting illuminates the history of karyotypic evolution in Perissodactyla

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.

Reconstruction of the Putative Cervidae Ancestral Karyotype by Chromosome Painting of Siberian Roe Deer (Capreolus pygargus) with Dromedary Probes

It is found that 8 chromosomal rearrangements have separated the karyotypes of the cattle and the Siberian roe deer, and the inversion on CPY11 might be an apomorphic trait of cervids, since it was detected in the gray brocket deer.



Comparative chromosome painting defines the high rate of karyotype changes between pigs and bovids

The reanalysis of the pig karyotype with a new generation of human paint probes provides an update of the human/pig comparative genome map and demonstrates two new chromosome homologies.

Karyotypic relationships of horses and zebras: results of cross-species chromosome painting

The comparative maps of equids allow for the unequivocal characterization of chromosomal rearrangements that differentiate the karyotypes of these equid species.

Comparative chromosome painting in mammals: human and the Indian muntjac (Muntiacus muntjak vaginalis).

The results demonstrate that the reshuffling of the muntjac karyotype is mostly due to fusions of huge blocks of entire chromosomes, which is in accordance with previous chromosome painting analyses between various Muntjac species and contrasts the findings for some other mammals that show exceptional chromosome reshufflers.

A Molecular Cytogenetic Analysis of the Tribe Bovini (Artiodactyla: Bovidae: Bovinae) with an Emphasis on Sex Shromosome Morphology and NOR Distribution

Comparisons among representative species of the tribe Bovini and selected outgroup taxa indicate that a knowledge of the chromosomal distribution of NORs among the Bovidae will prove to be phylogenetically informative.

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

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.

Comparative map between the domestic pig and dog

Cross-species chromosome painting with probes derived from flow-sorted dog and human chromosomes was used to construct a high-resolution comparative map for the pig that allows for the conserved syntenies detected in the pig, human, and cat to be aligned against the putative ancestral karyotype of eutherian mammals.

Comparative genome maps of the pangolin, hedgehog, sloth, anteater and human revealed by cross-species chromosome painting: further insight into the ancestral karyotype and genome evolution of eutherian mammals

These maps demonstrate the conservation of such syntenic segment associations as HSA3/21, 4/8, 7/16, 12/22, 14/15 and 16/19 in Eulipotyphla, Pholidota and Xenarthra and thus further consolidate the notion that they form part of the ancestral karyotype of the eutherian mammals.

Tandem chromosome fusions in karyotypic evolution of Muntiacus: evidence from M. feae and M. gongshanensis

A high-resolution comparative map is established between M. reevesi, M. feae, and M. gongshanensis, proving that all tandem fusions underpinning the karyotypic evolution of these two muntjac species are also centromere–telomere fusions.

Cytogenetic aspects of phylogeny in the Bovidae. II. C-banding.

The conservation of banding patterns in chromosome arms strongly indicates that Robertsonian translocation type rearrangements have provided the major source of interspecies karyotype differences, with inversions and reciprocal and tandem translocations providing relatively minor contributions.

A complete comparative chromosome map for the dog, red fox, and human and its integration with canine genetic maps.

The dog-fox map and DAPI banding comparison demonstrate that the remarkable karyotype differences between fox and dog are due to 26 chromosomal fusion events and 4 fission events and are proposed that the more easily karyotyped fox chromosomes can be used as a common reference and control system for future gene mapping in the DogMap project and CGH analysis of canine tumor DNA.
