We have studied fixed chromosomes and purified DNA of Anguilla anguilla L. after digestion with HaeIII, AluI, MboI, and DdeI restriction endonucleases. Our data demonstrated (i) confirmation of the heteromorphic nature of NORs, (ii) absence of detectable sex chromosomes, and (iii) presence of discrete intercalary domains in this species. Our data also permitted us to hypothesize the existence of highly repetitive DNAs, localized in specific heterochromatic regions of A. anguilla chromosomes.

Abstract

We have studied fixed chromosomes and purified DNA of Anguilla anguilla L. after digestion with HaeIII, AluI, MboI, and DdeI restriction endonucleases. Our data demonstrated (i) confirmation of the heteromorphic nature of NORs, (ii) absence of detectable sex chromosomes, and (iii) presence of discrete intercalary domains in this species. Our data also permitted us to hypothesize the existence of highly repetitive DNAs, localized in specific heterochromatic regions of A. anguilla chromosomes.
