When the heterochromatin and euchromatin of Triatoma infestans are maximally depurinated, their Feulgen-DNA spectral profiles exhibit a shoulder at about lambda = 530 nm. The shoulder is especially prominent in the curves of the heterochromatin. It is assumed that this pattern is related to richness in repetitive DNA in the heterochromatin, favoring(More)
The digitized nuclear images of some Feulgen-stained primary and secondary spermatocytes of Triatoma infestans were analyzed with computer programs. Different cell types could be mathematically discriminated in terms of distance of the condensed chromatin areas from the center of the nucleus, relative circumference of these areas, and staining intensity(More)
