Mitotic chromosomes from C. sativus (A, B), C. melo (C, D), C. lanatus (E, F), B. hispida (G, H), M. charantia (I, J), L. cylindrica (K, L), L. siceraria var. hispida (M, N) and C. moschata (O, P) stained using CPD staining and sequential FISH with biotin-labelled 45S rDNA probe. A, C, E, G, I, K, M and O are the chromosomes stained using CPD. The chromosome numbers are designated by karyotyping. B, D, F, H, J, L, N and P are the chromosomes displaying 45S rDNA signals (green). The total DNA was counterstained using DAPI (blue). Scale bars: 10 ┬Ám.
