In order to investigate the genomic compatibility between allopatric rodent species, Phyllotis darwini and Phyllotis magister, we have studied several cytogenetic and reproductive features of their laboratory hybrids. Of thirty-one pairings between species, only five were successful, producing eleven newborns. Like parents, hybrids had 38 metacentric chromosomes, except for the subtelocentric Y chromosome inherited from P. magister. There was almost total C and G band correspondence between… CONTINUE READING
