Nucleolus organizers in Mus musculus subspecies and in the RAG mouse cell line



Nucleolus organizers in Mus musculus subspecies and in the RAG mouse cell line



Genetics 86(2 Pt. 1): 389-398



Silver staining has been used to detect active nucleolus organizer regions (NOR's). By this criterion six mouse chromosomes, numbers 12, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19, can have an NOR. The number and distribution of chromosomes with NOR's vary among inbred strains of Mus musculus musculus (C57BL/6J, BALB/cJ, C3H/HeJ and C3H/StCpr1BR) and in M. musculus molossinus. In a musculus X molassinus F1 hybrid, nucleolus organizers from each parent are silver stained.--Chromosomes which have NOR's in diploid cells also show them in tetraploid cells and in established cell lines. The BALB/cJ strain shows Ag-staining of NOR's on chromosomes 12, 15, 18 and occasionally 16. In the RAG cell line, which was derived from BALB/c, active NOR's are seen on 12, 15 and 18, even after these chromosomes have undergone structural rearrangements in the cell line. Some correlation exists between the amount of Ag-stain and the size of a secondary construction region, with a large amount of Ag-stain present on a chromosome which has a prominent secondary constriction. There is no correlation between the amount of Ag-stain and the presence or absence of C-band material.
