These “mutations’ are sources of novelty, create variation within the species that selection can act on (here, when the mitochondrial from the dog enters the CTVT line). A lot of novelty in organisms that HGT is from such events, they can acquire entirely novel functional abilities in one step. Translocations: Large The words are mistaken, ignore them. You have a heterozygote, one parent gives you 2 acrocentric chromosomes, but the other parent has metacentric arrangements. Typically what we see in species is mostly one or the other arrangements. An interesting mechanism produces this pattern, at a...
