A method for simultaneously obtaining R-banding and chromosome painting is described. It combines fluorescence in situ hybridization with replication of R-bands by 5-bromo-2′-deoxyuridine incorporation into synchronized cells. Distinctive R-banding induced by a modified fluorochrome-photolysis procedure can be observed on both painted and non-painted chromosomes. This method applied to Lemur chromosomes was developed for further studies of chromosomal changes in the evolution of prosimian… CONTINUE READING
