Abstract

Here we present information on the assignment of 7 genes, ACADVL, ADORA3, ATP7A, MTMR4, MYH2, HBB, TSPAN-3, and 4 common shrew microsatellites to chromosomes of the common shrew (Sorex araneus) and on the current status of its cytogenetic map. Comparative mapping data were used for the analysis of evolutionary chromosomal rearrangements in the common shrew genome.
