C-band polymorphisms in exotic inbred strains of mice: a method for mapping centromeric ends of chromosomes.


The major satellite DNA of Mus musculus appears as a pericentromeric heterochromatin block in all chromosomes but the Y. While C-banding readily reveals the presence of this heterochromatin block, there is considerable polymorphism in C-band size among the chromosomes and among different subspecies. We have studied the distribution of C-band size… (More)
