Biochemical Society Transactions The chromosomal distribution of the C bands cava similar in the karyotypes of the two species, being located preferentially in the centromeres and the short arms of the chromosomes Fig. Article Tools How to cite item.

Redford 15 May National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.

In Argentina it lives in burrows with several entrances. The differences in the number of AgNOR bands found between the two Cavia species analyzed here and among the individuals in each of them, confirmed the tendency to variability in NOR expression usually described for mammals. By contrast, the crosses between Cavia porcellus and Cavia aperea sensu Erxleben, Pictet and FerreroRood and between Cavia porcellus and Cavia cutleri Tschudi, sensu Bennet, Castle produced hybrids which were fertile in both sexes.

Abstract Cavia tschudii Fitzinger, is a wild guinea pig species living in South America that according to the analysis of mitochondrial genes is the closest wild form of the domestic guinea pig.

The polymorphism for chromosome 1 short arms detected previously for Cavia cobaya Pallas,a synonym of Cavia porcellusOhno et al. However, the amount of constitutive heterochromatin was appreciably greater in Cavia tschudii than in Cavia porcellusspreading over most of the short arms in several subtelocentric tscyudii Fig. Comparative Cytogenetics 8 2: It is even more difficult to obtain descendants from crosses between different chromosomal races or species in tschudiu laboratory Walker et al.

By contrast, other wild specimens from Ica, Peru that also received the name Cavia cutleri by Tschudi inwere finally renamed as Cavia tschudii by Fitzinger in see Weir ; the latter is now the usually accepted name for the wild montane guinea pig Woods and Kilpatrick Fertility and segregation in laboratory-reared and wild mice heterozygous for multiple Robertsonian rearrangements. Genetics and Molecular Biology Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London part 3, no.

Comparison of the Tchudii karyotypes of the two Cavia species included in this study revealed that most of the autosomal pairs and the X chromosomes showed total G band correspondence, suggesting that these chromosomes constitute large syntenic blocks present in the common ancestor of both species and conserved over time.

Montane guinea pig

An update of the taxonomy, systematics, and distribution of the mammals of Salta Province, Argentina. The montane guinea pig is the likely ancestor of Cavia porcellusthe cavy or domestic guinea pig.

Caiva, the fertility of the heterozygotes for the pericentric inversions described here should be further investigated to evaluate the contribution of those chromosomal changes to the divergence of the two Caavia species. Correspondence of Cavia tschudii and Cavia porcellus chromosomes according to their G band patterns 1.

Cytogenetic and Cell Genetics Using a double-staining procedure they could identify those chromosomes as numbers 1, 3, 9, 12 and 14 of the quinacrine banded stained karyotype.

Peruvian wild guinea pigs were first cavla by E. The montane guinea pig is native to the high Andes in South America. Vuilleumier F, Monasterio M. Cavia tschudii Fitzinger, is a wild guinea pig species living in South America that according to the analysis of mitochondrial genes is the closest wild form of the domestic guinea pig.


Based on these molecular results and on the analysis of mummified guinea pig remains found in archeological sites, Spotorno et al. Rock Cavy Kerodon rupestris Acrobatic cavy Kerodon acrobata. The greater number of AgNOR bands found in the Cavia porcellus karyotype than in the Cavia tschudii one would reveal a greater transcriptional activity of the ribosomal genes cacia the genome of the domestic form. Familia Caviidae Waterhouse, ; p.

Cavia tschudii

At least 10 good-quality metaphases for each of the staining methods per taxon were selected under a light microscope and tscjudii captured and stored.

This page was last edited on 15 Februaryat According to the environmental continuity along the Ambato range, we suggest that the presence of C. Submetacentric Cavia tschudii chromosomes Cts, first column at tschudii left that originate the subtelocentric Cavia porcellus chromosomes Cpo, last column at the right: Differences in the C bands size and the mean number of AgNOR bands between the karyotypes of the two species were detected.

The role of the chromosomal and genomic differences in the divergence of these two Cavia species is discussed.
