The same C-banded human polymorphic chromosomes were observed in the light microscope (LM) and then in the scanning electron microscope (SEM) to investigate the structural changes produced by the C-banding technique. C-banded regions, which stained positively in LM, were highly condensed with tightly packed chromatin fibres, resembling non-banded chromosomes. In striking contrast, adjacent non-C-banded regions were represented by loosely arranged fibres, resembling G-banded chromosomes. The significance of these observations in relation to current theories on the effects of C-banding on chromosome structure is discussed.
