The reproductive features of wild all-acrocentric and 2n = 22 Robertsonian (Rb) house mice (M. m. domesticus) from Tunisia were studied. The aim was to examine the possibility of a reproductive selective advantage associated with chromosomal change as well as to measure the effect of heterozygosity for a large number of Rb fusions on the fertility of hybrids. Results showed that litter sizes were significantly smaller in Rb than in all-acrocentric mice. This difference, which may represent a… CONTINUE READING
