Studies on G-Banding Karyotype in Barley (Hordeum vulgare)

Ding Yi and Song Yun-chun   

Abstract: G-banding karyotypes of three cultivars in barley were analyzed. Multiple closely adjacent G-bands were able to be observed in each early metaphase or metaphase chromosome treatted by an ASG method. The more concentrated the chromosome, the less was the number of G-bands during mitosis. The position of band distribution, staining degree and band numbers between homologous chromosomes were basically identical. Chromosome pairing for karyotype analysis could be carried out more accurately. G-banding patterns of different chromosome pairs were not the same, they could be used as the markers to distinguish one from another chromosome pair. During the same mitotic stage the banding patterns including number, relative position and staining degree of the bands between different cultivars were basically the same, but they had differences in the size and staining degree of some bands near centromeres. G-banding technique and G-banding of metaphase chromosomes were discussed.

Key words: Barley, Chromosome, G-banding
