A simple and rapid technique is described whereby the nucleolus organizer regions (NORs) of human chromosomes can be differentially stained with silver. This staining is followed by trypsin-Giemsa banding on the same metaphase chromosomes. The metaphases simultaneously exhibit silver-stained NORs and G bands, allowing for the unequivocal identification of all chromosomes and greatly facilitating studies involving the NOR-bearing acrocentrics.
