Heterochromatin diversity and cyclic responses to selective silver staining in Aedes aegypti (L.)

Abstract

In interphase cells of Aedes aegypti (L.) (2n=4+ XX/XY), only the nucleolus responded to selective silver staining. The secondary constriction on chromosome 3 remained unresponsive at all times but the six centromeres were identified throughout mitosis from early prophase as well as those stages of meiosis subsequent to diplotene. The centromeric blocks… (More)
