Quantitative aspects of DNA losses during fixation and pararosaniline(SO2)-Feulgen staining of microscopic preparations were studied. The preparation of a new cytochemical model, consisting of DNA-protein layers (with thicknesses between 0.1 and 5.0 μm) on microscopic glass slides is described and potentialities and limitations of this model are discussed.(More)
The properties of aminoalkylsilane-treated glass slides for the preparation of metaphase spreads and their staining quality have been studied and compared with those of slides which had only been cleaned in ethanol/ether. The parameters investigated were: (1) the average area of metaphases from cultures of blood from both healthy donors and haematology(More)
A new hypothesis is proposed on the involvement of nucleosomes in Giemsa banding of chromosomes. Giemsa staining as well as the concomitant swelling can be explained as an insertion of the triple charged hydrophobic dye complex between the negatively-charged supercoiled helical DNA and the denatured histone cores of the nucleosomes still present in the(More)
