Localization of rRNA genes in Phyllostomidae bats reveals silent NORs in Artibeus cinereus.


We analyzed the nucleolus organizer regions (NORs) of thirteen bats from genera Phyllostomus, Phylloderma, Trachops, Tonatia, Sturnira, Platyrrhinus, Artibeus and Glossophaga. We used silver staining and FISH with rDNA probe. Nine species had only one Ag-NOR-bearing chromosome pair. Artibeus lituratus, A. jamaicensis and A. fimbriatus presented multiple Ag… (More)
