Abstract

The results obtained after restriction enzymes digestion of Mus domesticus and Mus musculus chromosomes, showed regional chromosomal staining differences suitable for distinguishing between trypsin Giemsa homosequential banding patterns. These differences are particularly clear at the pericentromeric level where the satellite DNA is located. These data support the idea that major differences exist in the DNA composition and organization of the satellite DNA between domesticus and musculus genomes.
