Llama, guanaco, vicuna and alpaca show similar diploid numbers, gross chromosomal morphology and homologous G, C and NOR banding patterns. This chromosomal homology is also found in the two-humped camel and very probably in the one-humped camel as well. These findings indicate that the camelid karyotype can probably be traced back to early Miocene times. This probably represents the most extreme case of chromosomal conservatism among mammals. 

X Chromosome Evolution in Cetartiodactyla

The recently described phenomenon of the evolutionary new centromere emergence has taken place in the X chromosome evolution of Cetartiodactyla at least five times and the structure of the putative ancestral cetartodactyl X chromosome is proposed by reconstructing the order of syntenic segments and centreromere position for key groups.

Restriction site patterns in the ribosomal DNA of Camelidae

The study showed that the two groups differ in the length of the internal transcribed spacer and showed the existence of two regions of fast evolution on the opposite termini of the external spacer.

Cross-species chromosome painting among camel, cattle, pig and human: further insights into the putative Cetartiodactyla ancestral karyotype

A Cetartiodactyla ancestral karyotype is proposed and a genome-wide comparative chromosome map of human/pig/cattle is constructed to facilitate the positional cloning of genes by aiding the cross-species transfer of mapping information.

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.

9-2017 X Chromosome Evolution in Cetartiodactyla

The recently described phenomenon of the evolutionary new centromere emergence has taken place in the X chromosome evolution of Cetartiodactyla at least five times and the structure of the putative ancestral cetartodactyl X chromosome is proposed by reconstructing the order of syntenic segments and centreromere position for key groups.

DNA composition in South American camelids I. Characterization and in situ hybridization of satellite DNA fractions

The analysis of the in situ hybridization patterns allowed to conclude that most or all C-banded chromosome regions comprise several satellite DNA fractions, and it is proposed that there is an ample interspecies variation in the number of chromosomes that cross-react with a given satellite fraction.

Chromosome-Level Alpaca Reference Genome VicPac3.1 Improves Genomic Insight Into the Biology of New World Camelids

A chromosome-level improved reference assembly for the alpaca genome VicPac3.1 presents a significant improvement in completeness, contiguity and accuracy over VicPac2 and is an important tool for the advancement of genomics research in all New World camelids.

Doing the Karyotype Shuffle: A Survey of Intrabaraminic Variation in Karyotypes and Chromosome Numbers

A critical look at diploid variations within a baramin and the findings are connected to the current creation model of diversification and to baraminology, showing that chromosome number change within this sampling of nine baramins seems to be the rule rather than the exception.

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.

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.
