Heterochromatic differentiation in barley chromosomes revealed by C- and N-banding techniques

  title={Heterochromatic differentiation in barley chromosomes revealed by C- and N-banding techniques},
  author={Katsuyuki Kakeda and Kiichi Fukui and Harumi Yamagata},
  journal={Theoretical and Applied Genetics},
Heterochromatin distribution in barley chromosomes was investigated by analyzing the C- and N-banding patterns of four cultivars. Enzymatic maceration and air drying were employed for the preparation of the chromosome slides. Although the two banding patterns were generally similar to each other, a clear difference was observed between them at the centromeric sites on all chromosomes. Every centromeric site consisted of N-banding positive and C-banding negative (N+ C−) heterochromatin in every… CONTINUE READING
