PMID:  6192554     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Refinements to a simple, one-step silver staining technique for nucleolar organizing regions are described. These include fixation of silver stained material with sodium thiosulfate and standardization of silver development conditions for different groups of vertebrates. The central advantages to the method are that it is rapid, reliable, simple, and inexpensive. Additional benefits include (i) consistent and uniform silver staining of nucleolar organizing regions, (ii) few reduced silver deposits elsewhere on the chromosomes or on the slides, (iii) generally unaltered chromosome morphology after silver treatment, and (iv) relative permanence of Permounted preparations. The method works equally well on chromosomes made from cell cultures and from solid tissues of live specimens.
