Abstract

Leucopternis albicollis is a diurnal bird of prey with extensive karyotype reorganization. Chromosome-specific probes from this species have been used successfully to detect intrachromosomal rearrangements in different species of bird since 2010. However, some gaps were detected in this first set of probes. Here, we have obtained a new set of whole chromosome probes in order to improve the previous one; also, we have performed experiments using bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) from chicken microchromosomes. Our results demonstrated that the microchromosomes were involved in fusion events. In addition, a new nomenclature has been proposed for the new set of probes and some inaccurate data were corrected.
