Human peripheral lymphocyte chromosomes were stained simultaneously for sister chromatid exchanges (SCEs) and Q-banding. No effect of treatment with MMS, QM, and Q on the distribution of SCEs in chromosomes was found compared with controls. The SCEs were distributed between chromosomes roughly according to metaphase length, with the shorter chromosomes underrepresented. The majority of SCEs were located to pale bands, while a few occurred in bright bands and at interfaces between pale and bright bands. A greater frequency than expected of SCEs had occurred at identical sites in homologous chromosomes. This frequency was significantly increased after treatment with MMS.
