Herein, we report the results of a comparative genomic analyses of the [beta]-globin gene in 11 different taxa; nine eutherian [Homo sapiens (human), Macaca mulatta (rhesus monkey), Pan troglodytes (chimpanzee), Rattus norvegicus (mouse), Mus musculus (rat), Canis familiaris (dog), Bos taurus (cow), Equus caballus (horse), Oryctolagus cuniculus (rabbit)], one dinosaurian (avian) Gallus gallus (chicken) and a neopterygii (marine) Danio rerio (fish), describing fundamental similarities and differences among taxa to enable better evolutionary understanding of functional [beta]-globin gene (Fig.

In eutherian mammals, with a standard XY/XX system, a few cases of derived multiple-sex chromosomes are known and are usually of the XY1Y2/XX type; but some, as in the black muntjac, reveal an extremely complex origin (White 1960, Zhou et al.
This leaves open the question whether the eutherian XY evolved 310 million years ago, shortly after the common ancestor of mammals and birds/reptiles, or less than 166 million years ago, at the time of the common ancestor of monotremes and eutherians (Figure 5).
