Chromosomal homologies revealed by BAC-FISH. The figure summarizes the results of the comparative FISH mapping of LG1, 3, 5, and 7 markers in nine Pseudocrenilabrinae species. For more details see Additional file 2. The different colors indicate the mapped markers (detailed on the left), and the orange bordering highlights the large metacentric chromosome carrying LG5 in A. burtoni and the duplicated marker (UNH115) in the LG3 of M. lombardoi . The asterisks (*) in the LG3 markers indicate the presence of repetitive DNA sequences. Linkage group 7 was not analyzed in L. trewavasae. Scale bar 5μm.
