Chinese hamster metaphase chromosomes, subjected to prolonged hypotonic pretreatment and subsequently stained with ammoniacal silver, contained a darkly-stained core-like structure in each chromatid, surrounded by a halo of dispersed chromatin which was pale yellow to brown in color. The core was variable in its appearance, ranging from a continuous linear configuration to a spiral structure or a discontinuous, particulate structure. Within the centromeric regions, the cores frequently appeared more intensely stained than elsewhere in the chromosome. The nucleolus organizers also stained darkly and appeared to be attached to the core-like structures. It remains to be determined whether the cores represent a real component of metaphase chromosome structure, or whether they are artifacts resulting from abnormal chromatin aggregation arising at the time of chromosome preparation.
