Supplementary Material

The information of supplementary materials are as follows: Supplementary Table 1 - Schematic representation of genomic comparisons through fluorescent in situ hybridization with total genomic DNA (GISH). Supplementary Fig. 1 Correspondence between the GTG-banded chromosomes of Akodontini. Akodon cursor (ACU, 2n=14), on the left, A. montensis (AMO, 2n=24), in the middle, and Necromys lasiurus (NLA, 2n=34), on the right. Supplementary Fig. 2 Control GISH experiments of: (a) Akodon cursor (2n=14, FN=19), (b) A. montensis (2n=24, FN=42), and (c) Necromys lasiurus (2n=34, FN=34). Control suppression experiments of: (d) A. cursor, (e) A. montensis, and (f) N. lasiurus. Chromosomes were counterstained with propidium iodide. Bar = 10 µm.
