Chromosomal homologies have been established between cattle (Bos taurus, 2n = 60) and eight species of spiral-horned antelope, Tribe Tragelaphini: Nyala (Tragelaphus angasii, 2n = 55♂/56♀), Lesser kudu (T. imberbis, 2n = 38♂,♀), Bongo (T. eurycerus, 2n = 33♂/34♀), Bushbuck (T. scriptus, 2n = 33♂/34♀), Greater kudu (T. strepsiceros, 2n = 31♂/32♀), Sitatunga (T. spekei, 2n = 30♂,♀) Derby eland (Taurotragus derbianus 2n = 31♂/32♀) and Common eland (T. oryx 2n = 31♂/32♀).

Nanger, Eudorcas, Gazella, and Antilope form a well-supported chromosomal clade within Antilopini (Bovidae, Cetartiodactyla)
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis of the chromosomal data supports monophyly of Nanger and Eudorcas and suggests an affiliation between A. cervicapra and some of the Gazella species, and renders Gazella paraphyletic and emphasizes a closer relationship between Antilope and Gazella than what has previously been considered. Expand
Chromosome evolution in the subtribe Bovina (Mammalia, Bovidae): The karyotype of the Cambodian banteng (Bos javanicus birmanicus) suggests that Robertsonian translocations are related to interspecific hybridization
TLDR
It is suggested that Robertsonian translocations have been fixed in the common ancestor of Cambodian banteng as a consequence of hybridization with the kouprey (Bos sauveli) during the Pleistocene epoch. Expand
Chromosome Homologies between Tsessebe (Damaliscus lunatus) and Chinese muntjac (Muntiacus reevesi) Facilitate Tracing the Evolutionary History of Damaliscus (Bovidae, Antilopinae, Alcelaphini)
TLDR
The phylogenomic relationships of 3 species reflected by specific chromosomal rearrangements were consistent with published phylogenies based on morphology, suggesting that chromosomal upheavals have played an important role in speciation within the Alcelaphini, and that karyotype characters are valuable phylogenetic markers in this group. Expand
Chromosome Rearrangements in the Tribe Antilopini ( Bovidae )
For a clade that includes Antilope, Gazella, Nanger and Eudorcas (Antilopinae), X;BTA5 translocation is a synapomorphy. Using a combination of fluorescence in situ hybridi zation (FISH) probes andExpand
Karyotypic relationships in Asiatic asses (kulan and kiang) as defined using horse chromosome arm-specific and region-specific probes
TLDR
Comparative chromosome painting in kiang completed the efforts to establish chromosomal homologies in all representatives of the family Equidae. Expand
Molecular Insights into X;BTA5 Chromosome Rearrangements in the Tribe Antilopini (Bovidae)
TLDR
The present study provides the first insight into the X;BTA5 architecture which differs in the species under study, and emphasizes the importance of chromosomal rearrangement verification, particularly, if they are used for phylogenetic analysis. Expand
Multi-locus phylogeny of the tribe Tragelaphini (Mammalia, Bovidae) and species delimitation in bushbuck: Evidence for chromosomal speciation mediated by interspecific hybridization.
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses show that the Scriptus lineage is a sister-group of Sylvaticus in the nuclear tree, whereas it is related to Tragelaphus angasii in the mitochondrial tree, which indicates that the mitochondrial genome of Scriptus was acquired by introgression after one or several past events of hybridization between bushbuck and an extinct species closely related to T. angAsii. Expand
Meiotic behaviour of evolutionary sex-autosome translocations in Bovidae
TLDR
Despite intraspecies differences, the evolutionary fixation of sex-autosome translocations among bovids appears to involve general mechanisms ensuring sex chromosome pairing, synapsis, recombination and inactivation. Expand
A paradox revealed: karyotype evolution in the four-horned antelope occurs by tandem fusion (Mammalia, Bovidae, Tetracerus quadricornis)
TLDR
It is concluded that the attendant result of each fusion is an enlarged acrocentric fusion element comprising a single functional centromere and two terminal telomeres that, collectively, led to a reduction of the 2n’= 58 bovid ancestral ac rocentric chromosomal complement to the 2 n’s detected in the four-horned antelope. Expand
Centric fusion polymorphism in captive animals of family Bovidae
TLDR
The study showed that 13% of investigated individuals were polymorphic for the centric fusion and demonstrated the important role of cytogenetic screening in captive animals at zoological gardens. Expand

A molecular cytogenetic analysis of X chromosome repatterning in the Bovidae: transpositions, inversions, and phylogenetic inference
TLDR
A paucity of comparative mapping data precludes the assignment of the sequences contained in cattle Xp to either the presumed conserved (XCR) or the recently added (XAR) region of the eutherian X chromosome, and the reasons for the retention of these sequences as an evolutionarily conserved unit in the intrachromosomal restructuring of the bovid X across lineages remain enigmatic.

X chromosome evolution in the suni and eland antelope: detection of homologous regions by fluorescence in situ hybridization and G-banding.
TLDR
It is shown that intrachromosomal rearrangements distinguish the X chromosomes of these species, and it is believed that this approach (combining conventional and molecular cytogenetic studies on the X chromosome) will prove useful for inferring phylogenetic relationships in the family Bovidae, particularly as more probes become available.

A Molecular Cytogenetic Analysis of the Tribe Bovini (Artiodactyla: Bovidae: Bovinae) with an Emphasis on Sex Shromosome Morphology and NOR Distribution
TLDR
Comparisons among representative species of the tribe Bovini and selected outgroup taxa indicate that a knowledge of the chromosomal distribution of NORs among the Bovidae will prove to be phylogenetically informative. Expand
Cytochrome b phylogeny of the family bovidae: resolution within the alcelaphini, antilopini, neotragini, and tragelaphini.
TLDR
All evidence suggests that the Alcelaphini form a monophyletic group; there was no support for the recognition of the Lichtenstein's hartebeest in a separate genus (Sigmoceros), and the acceptance of the previously suggested Al Celaphus is recommended for this species. Expand
Chromosomal evolution in gazelles.
TLDR
A phylogenetic reconstruction confirms most of the taxonomic relationships obtained by morphological analyses for this group of species, and the main novelties are the proximity of G. rufifrons and G. thomsoni and the inclusion of Antilope cervicapra in the gazelle group. Expand
Molecular and morphological phylogenies of ruminantia and the alternative position of the moschidae.
TLDR
A Bayesian relaxed molecular clock approach based on the continuous autocorrelation of evolutionary rates along branches was applied to estimate the divergence ages between the major clades of ruminants, confirming the traditional view that separates Tragulina and Pecora. Expand
Complex evolution of X and Y autosomal translocations in the giant mole-rat, Cryptomys mechowi (Bathyergidae)
TLDR
The likely sequence of evolutionary events that has led to the contemporary composition of the C. mechowi sex chromosomes are discussed, and these are considered in the light of prevailing views on the genesis of sex chromosomes in mammals. Expand

TLDR
The conservation of banding patterns in chromosome arms strongly indicates that Robertsonian translocation type rearrangements have provided the major source of interspecies karyotype differences, with inversions and reciprocal and tandem translocations providing relatively minor contributions.
