A new population of Mus musculus domesticus showing Robertsonian translocations (2n = 22) has been identified in Tunisia. Mice carried 9 pairs of Robertsonian translocations: Rb(1.11), Rb(2.16), Rb(3.12), Rb(4.6), Rb(5.14), Rb(7.18), Rb(8.9), Rb(10.17) and Rb(13.15). Five of the nine translocations are not known to occur elsewhere. In two populations only 2n = 22 mice were present, whereas in a third one a mixture of karyotypes (2n = 22, 38, 39, 40) was found. The slight electrophoretic… CONTINUE READING
