  • The karyotypes of two closely related species of mustelids, the Japanese ermine (Mustela erminea nippon) and the least weasel (M, nivalis namiyei), were compared by means of the G-and C-banding methods. A high degree of G-band homology was observed between the chromosome arms of the two species, except for the faintly stained (G-negative) regions in the short arms of the pairs Nos. 1 to 5 of the least weasel (W1 to W5). These G-negative regions were found to correspond to the deeply stained C… CONTINUE READING
