Numbers beside the chromosomes represent homologous chromosomes of Muntiacus reevesi defined by comparative chromosomal painting [21]. Only the proximal region 17b and the distal region below 17a can form homologous pairing and thus recombine with their homologs. Regions spanning from '22a' to '17a' cannot recombine because of a large intrachromosomal inversion. Regions '8', '17a', and '17b' were derived from short arm of autosome 1 (1p) and further experienced rearrangements, forming the current order along 1p+4. We also showed location information for the investigated 23 genes [22,35].
