Identification of the pattern of heterochromatin distribution in Passiflora species with C-banding

A. J. C. Viana and Souza, M. M., Identification of the pattern of heterochromatin distribution in Passiflora species with C-banding, vol. 9, pp. 1908-1913, 2010.

We tested four C-banding protocols to obtain heterochromatic bands in the passion fruit species Passiflora edulis and P. cacaoensis (Passifloraceae). Three of these protocols had been previously described. The three published protocols were not adequate to obtain C-bands in these species. An adapted protocol demonstrated heterochromatin distribution in metaphasic chromosomes of species of Passiflora for the first time.
