Madoqua kirkii, a miniature African antelope, is noted for extensive chromosomal variation that has been categorized in four distinct cytotypes (A-D). In this investigation, we analyzed the A cytotype (2n = 46, FN = 48) using a suite of molecular cytogenetic approaches that entailed (i) whole chromosome and subchromosomal painting by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), (ii) the study of Madoqua centromeric-specific DNA derived from pooled DNA obtained from the centromeric regions of the… CONTINUE READING
