Chromosomalin situ hybridization ofCyprinus carpio genomic DNA repetitive sequence CR1

  • Zequn Wang
  • Zuoyan Zhu


Common carpCyprinus carpio genomic DNA repetitive sequence CR1 has been DIG-labeled and hybridizedin situ against chromosomes of red common carp (Cyprinus carpio L. Xingguo red var. ). It is found that the repetitive sequence CR1 is mainly localized at the centromeric regions of chromosomes of the red common carp. The application of the chromosomalin situ hybridization technique on fish and the relationship between CR1 repetitive sequence distribution and its function have been discussed.
