|Title:||The Effect Of Clupein On Anisotropy And Basophilia Of Polytene Chromosomes|
|Author:||de Campos Vidal B.|
|Abstract:||When polytene chromosomes are subjected to a clupein treatment, their properties of basophilia and anisotropy are affected. The basophilia is deeply reduced, except in the nucleolar zones, puffs and sites of RNA accumulation. On the other hand, the chromosome birefringence increases. The phenomenon of anomalous dispersion of birefringence usually observed on polytene chromosomes stained with toluidine blue solutions turns into a normal negative dispersion of birefringence, when staining is preceded by clupein treatment. It is concluded that the clupein molecules attach orderly and preferentially to sequential DNA phosphates unbound to chromosome proteins, accentuating DNA anisotropic characteristics. The clupein molecules appear not attaching to RNA phosphates.|
