Chromosome study of peled (Coregonus peled, Salmoniformes).


Chromosomes of Coregonus peled were examined by Giemsa, CMA3, Ag-NOR and C-banding. The karyotype of peled had a diploid number 2n=76, arm number NF=96 and consisted of twenty meta-submeta chromosomes and 56 subtelo-acrocentric chromosomes. C-positive blocks of heterochromatin were observed on the telomeric regions of meta- and submetacentric chromosomes. Pairs no. 1 and 11 had short arms, completely heterochromatic. The NOR was observed at one acrocentric pair, no. 11. Arm length polymorphism was observed on the NOR-bearing pair.
