Composition of chromosomes in hybrids revealed by carbol fuchsin staining and GISH. a, b, c, d represents chromosome counts of wf9, MM30, Twf9, and Z. perennis. e + f and g + h represent chromosomal composition of MP30 and MP40, respectively. Yellow and pink signals represent maize and Z. perennis genome, respectively. All bars = 10 ┬Ám. The blue terminal ends of maize chromosomes represent maize knobs (intensely stained with DAPI).
