Early and late replicating chromosomal banding patterns of Gallus domesticus were investigated by cell synchronization and incorporation of 5'-bromodeoxyuridine during early and late DNA synthesis. The early replicating chromosomal banding patterns observed, as revealed by either acridine orange or Hoechst 33258/propidium iodide staining, were similar to the structural G-banding patterns obtained by trypsin di-gestion and Giemsa staining. Late replicating chromosomal banding showed extensive reverse band complementarity to the G-banding pattern. Cell synchronization increased the number of prometaphase and metaphase plates available for analysis. G-banding obtained by Hoechst 33258/propidium iodide staining was investigated due to the fact that it is compatible with chromosomal in situ hybridization procedures that use nonisotopically-labeled DNA probes. Standard replicative G-banded and R-banded idiograms, as obtained after cell synchronization, are proposed.
