FISH mapping of three satellites on both mitotic and meiotic chromosomes in spinach. a FISH analysis of Spsat1, Spsat2, and Spsat3 on mitotic chromosomes. Arrows indicate the sex chromosomes (Spsat1) or the signals on the sex chromosomes (Spsat2 and Spsat3); b FISH analysis of Spsat1, Spsat2, and Spsat3 on meiotic chromosomes; three typical phases: pachytene, diakinesis, and metaphase I are shown. Arrows indicate the signals of the satellite DNAs. The satellite DNAs were labeled with Texas red (red signal), 45S rDNA was labeled with Chroma Tide Alexa Fluor 488 (green signal), and the chromosomes were counterstained with DAPI (blue). Bars = 10 μm
