Mammalian karyotype evolution

Of the 14 carnivore families, 8 (indicated by an asterisk) are arranged into a phylogeny using human-chromosome-specific probes from which a putative ancestral carnivore karyotype (ACK) can be resolved. Plus and minus signs indicate characteristic fusions and fissions of corresponding human segments, respectively. Question marks indicate putative syntenies that need to be verified. Composed from various data from Refs 66–75.
