A comparative chromosome map of birds and mammals inferred human homologies (right numbers) on chromosome idiograms. a. Reconstructed karyotype of the ancestral Eutherian genome [61]. Each chromosome is assigned a specific color. These colors are used for mark homologies in idiograms of chromosomes of other species (Figure 5b-5i) b. Idiogram of chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus, 2n = 78) chromosomes. The reconstruction is based on alignments of chicken and human genome sequences [100]. c. Idiogram of short-tailed opossum (Monodelphis domestica, 2n = 18) chromosomes. The reconstruction is based on alignments of opossum and human genome sequences [100]. d. Idiogram of aardvark (Orycteropus afer, 2n = 20) chromosomes. The reconstruction is based on painting data [61] e. Idiogram of mink (Mustela vison, 2n = 30) chromosomes. The reconstruction is based on painting data [101][97] f. Idiogram of the Red fox (Vulpes vulpes vison, 2n = 34 + 0-8 B's) chromosomes. The reconstruction is based on painting and mapping data [77][48] g. Reconstructed karyotype of the ancestral Sciuridae (Rodentia) genome, based on painting data (Li et al., 2004). h. Idiogram of the House mouse (Mus musculus, 2n = 40) chromosomes. The reconstruction is based on alignments of Mus and human genome sequences [100]. i. Idiogram of human (Homo sapiens, 2n = 46) chromosomes.
