aPositions correspond to chromosomal regions depicted in Figure 1a. bMissense mutations with drastic change of biochemical property of amino acid (polarity or charge), and those in bold represent sites that are highly conserved in other eutherian mammals with published sequences. We defined 'shared mutations' as those mutations detected in neo-Y alleles in both male black muntjacs, whereas 'polymorphic mutation' are those detected in only one male black muntjac.
