The Giemsa banding patterns of the chromosomes of 4 species of Procyonidae, 13 of Viverridae, and 6 of Felidae have been studied. The patterns have all been related to the basic felid karyotype. Each procyonid and viverrid has a distinctive karyotype, whereas some felids have indistinguishable karyotypes even when banded. Extensive interfamilial G-banding conservatism has been demonstrated, with many chromosomes being "shared" by all three families. A chromosome identification and karyotyping… CONTINUE READING
