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.

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.

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.

Ag-NOR staining and in situ hybridization of rDNA in the chromosomes of the South American camelids

The location and frequency of Ag-stained NORs and sites of rDNA hybridization were studied in the chromosomes of the South American camelids and the virtual absence of NOR sites on one of the smallest biarmed pairs was observed in vicuña.

Chromosomal Localization of Candidate Genes for Fiber Growth and Color in Alpaca (Vicugna pacos)

This work localizes alpaca candidate genes for fiber growth and color using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and results are concordant with known conserved synteny blocks between camelids and humans, cattle and pigs.

State of the art on the physical mapping of the Y-chromosome in the Bovidae and comparison with other species — A review

The physically mapped genes on the Y chromosome of cattle, buffalo, sheep, goats, pigs, horses and alpacas are reviewed to help elucidate their biological processes, as well as to discover and exploit potentially epistasis effects useful for selection breeding programs.

An Autosomal Translocation 73,XY,t(12;20)(q11;q11) in an Infertile Male Llama (Lama glama) With Teratozoospermia

This is the first case of a translocation and the first autosomal aberration reported in any camelid species and underlines the power of molecular cytogenetics methods over conventional banding-based chromosome analysis for explicit identification of normal and aberrant chromosomes in camelid karyotypes.

The available cytochemical data suggest that the Ag-AS reaction stains chromosomal proteins at the NOR rather than the rDNA itself, and this was critically demonstrated by Ag- AS staining of the nucleolus organizer regions in karyotypes of the same species and cell lines used for locating the ribosomal cistrons by DNA/RNA in situ hybridization.
