A developmental study of constitutive heterochromatin in Microtus agrestis

Abstract

In the vole, Microtus agrestis, the constitutive heterochromatin is largely restricted to the giant sex chromosomes but varies in its degree of condensation in various cell types. In the cleavage embryos and fibroblasts it formed one or two long and extended heterochromatic fibers, in hepatocytes it formed two large and diffuse masses and in neurons… (More)
