Satellite DNA and cytological staining patterns in heterochromatic inversions of human chromosome 9

A series of partial inversions of the heterochromatic C-band of chromosome 9 have been stained with distamycin A plus 4′,6-diamidino-2-phenyl-indol-2 HCl (DA/DAPI) and found to consist of three classes: (a) those in which only the C-band in the long arm fluoresces with DA/DAPI (these are the most frequent), (b) those in which only the C-band in the short… CONTINUE READING
