C-banding analysis with 47 gibbons of the subgenus Hylobates (Hylobates) (44-chromosome gibbons) uncovered that the gibbons had a characteristic complicated C-banding pattern. The C-band pattern also revealed that a whole-arm translocation (WAT) between chromosomes 8 and 9 existed only in the species H. agilis (agile gibbon). Comprehensive consideration allows postulation that the translocation seemed to be restricted to two subspecies: H. agilis agilis (mountain agile gibbon) and H. agilis… CONTINUE READING
