Chromosome painting in the African four-striped mouse Rhabdomys pumilio: Detection of possible murid specific contiguous segment combinations
Fluorescence in-situ hybridization was used to construct a comparative chromosome map between the laboratory mouse, Mus musculus and the African four-striped mouse, Rhabdomys pumilio. A high degree of homology between the ...
African 1, an epidemiologically important clonal complex of mycobacterium bovis dominant in Mali, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Chad
We have identified a clonal complex of Mycobacterium bovis present at high frequency in cattle in population samples from several sub-Saharan west-central African countries. This closely related group of bacteria is defined ...
Reciprocal chromosome painting among human, aardvark, and elephant (superorder Afrotheria) reveals the likely eutherian ancestral karyotype
The Afrotheria, a supraordinal grouping of mammals whose radiation is rooted in Africa, is strongly supported by DNA sequence data but not by their disparate anatomical features. We have used flow-sorted human, aardvark, ...
A phylogenetic review of the African leaf chameleons: Genus Rhampholeon (Chamaeleonidae): The role of vicariance and climate change in speciation
The phylogenetic associations among 13 currently recognized African leaf chameleon species were investigated by making use of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA sequence data (44 taxa and 4145 characters). The gene tree indicates ...
Molecular systematics of dormice (Rodentia: Gliridae) and the radiation of Graphiurus in Africa
The phylogenetic relationships among the Gliridae (order Rodentia) were assessed using 3430 nucleotides derived from three nuclear fragments (β-spectrin non-erythrocytic 1, thyrotropin and lecithin cholesterol acyl ...
