1.  Extreme bilateral polydactyly in a wild-caught western grey kangaroo.LinkIT

Anatomical record (Hoboken, N.J. : 2007)Anat Rec (Hoboken)Extreme bilateral polydactyly in a wild-caught western grey kangaroo.1361-137410.1002/ar.24530Polydactyly is a congenital malformation resulting from an autosomal dominant mutation manifesting as supernumerary digits of the hands or feet. It is most commonly reported in humans and domestic mammals, though there have also been isolated examples across a range of wild vertebrate species. Here we report a case of extremely unusual bilateral preaxial polydactyly on the pectoral limbs of a male western grey kangaroo (Macropus fuliginosus) from the South West region of Western Australia, in which two supernumerary digits were present on each manus. A supernumerary digit I on each manus was rudimentary in morphology without extrinsic muscular connections. However, supernumerary digit II present on each manus had fully developed extrinsic and intrinsic muscular connections, suggesting that these digits possessed normal function in flexion and extension. An alternative hypothesis is that the two supernumerary digits are both representatives of the most radial digit I, though this would then require the true digit I to have taken on the appearance of digit II by acquiring an additional phalanx and modified muscular attachments. The carpal bones exhibited a number of subtle differences in morphology when compared to normal pentadactyl individuals. The presence of a distal, rather than proximal, epiphysis on the first metacarpal was unexpected but further investigation suggested that this characteristic is perhaps more variable (in this species at least) than has been previously recognized. This case provides an unusual example to be considered within the broader context of limb development.© 2020 American Association for Anatomy.WarburtonNatalie MNM0000-0002-8498-3053Medical, Molecular and Forensic Science, Murdoch University, Murdoch, Western Australia, Australia.Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Western Australian Museum, Welshpool, Western Australia, Australia.CakeMartin AMASchool of Veterinary Medicine, Murdoch University, Murdoch, Western Australia, Australia.KelmanKhama RKRSchool of Veterinary Medicine, Murdoch University, Murdoch, Western Australia, Australia.engJournal ArticleResearch Support, Non-U.S. Gov't20201016United StatesAnat Rec (Hoboken)1012927751932-8486IMMacropodinaehand myologyintrinsic muscles of the Manuspectoral limbsupernumerary digits202007282020022420200810202010106020201010602020109542ppublish3303411510.1002/ar.24530REFERENCES, 2021</i></font><br><font color=#008000><br></font></span><br>2.  <a href= class=title>Late pleistocene Australian marsupial DNA clarifies the affinities of extinct megafaunal kangaroos and wallabies.</a><a href=><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Llamas B, Brotherton P, Mitchell KJ, Templeton JE, Thomson VA, Metcalf JL, Armstrong KN, Kasper M, Richards SM, Camens AB, Lee MS, Cooper A<br><font color=gray><i>Molecular biology and evolution, 2015</i></font><br><font color=#008000><br></font></span><br>3.  <a href= class=title>Cytogenetic and molecular evaluation of centromere-associated DNA sequences from a marsupial (Macropodidae: Macropus rufogriseus) X chromosome.</a><a href=><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Bulazel K, Metcalfe C, Ferreri GC, Yu J, Eldridge MD, O'Neill RJ<br><font color=gray><i>Genetics, 2006</i></font><br><font color=#008000><br></font></span><br>4.  <a href= class=title>A centromere-specific retroviral element associated with breaks of synteny in macropodine marsupials.</a><a href=><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Ferreri GC, Marzelli M, Rens W, O'Neill RJ<br><font color=gray><i>Cytogenetic and genome research, 2004</i></font><br><font color=#008000><br></font></span><br>5.  <a href= class=title>The phylogenetic position of the musky rat-kangaroo and the evolution of bipedal hopping in kangaroos (Macropodidae: Diprotodontia).</a><a href=><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Burk A, Westerman M, Springer M<br><font color=gray><i>Systematic biology, 1998</i></font><br><font color=#008000><br></font></span><br>6.  <a href= class=title>On the nature of the opaque and translucent enamel regions of some <b>macropodinae</b> (Macropus giganteus, Wallabia bicolor and Peradorcas concinna).</a><a href=><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Palamara J, Phakey PP, Rachinger WA, Sanson GD, Orams HJ<br><font color=gray><i>Cell and tissue research, 1984</i></font><br><font color=#008000><br></font></span><br>7.  <a href= class=title>[Ethology and phylogeny of the family Belontiidae (Anabantoidei, pisces)].</a><a href=><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Vierke J<br><font color=gray><i>Zeitschrift fur Tierpsychologie, 1975</i></font><br><font color=#008000><br></font></span><br></table></tr></table></td><script src="" type="text/javascript"> </script> <script type="text/javascript"> _uacct = "UA-634822-1"; urchinTracker(); </script> </BODY> </HTML>
