A karyotype analysis was carried out on the European Atlantic sturgeon, Acipenser sturio (2n=121 ± 3). The telomeric sequence repeat (TTAGGG)n detected by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) was mostly localized at the telomeres of all chromosomes. Ribosomal DNA (rDNA) genes were detected by silver staining techniques and by FISH with digoxigenin-labelled probe for 28S rDNA. Silver staining detected active NORs in the telomeric regions of six chromosomes, and by FISH one or two additional… CONTINUE READING
