Southern blotting, C-banding, base-specific fluorochrome staining, and fluorescence in situ hybridization were used to analyze the constitutive heterochromatin in eight species and subspecies of arvicolid rodents (genus Microtus). Autosomal centromeric regions portrayed considerable variability between species in the amount of C-band-positive material present; e.g., M. chrotorrhinus showed relatively little, whereas M. cabrerae exhibited extensive centromeric staining. Autosomal interstitial C… CONTINUE READING
