Distribution of 5-methylcytosine-rich regions in the metaphase chromosomes ofVicia faba

Abstract

The DNA methylation pattern ofVicia faba metaphase chromosomes was examined with a specific monoclonal antibody. 5-methylcytosine (5-mC) residues are present in different chromosomal sites, and are particularly abundant in telomeric and/or subtelomeric regions and in certain intercalary bands. Chromosomal localization of methylated regions enables a better… (More)
