Banded staining of the chromosomes of the NK/Ly ascites lymphoma cells can be achieved by the technique described by Schnedl, and the individual identification of the single chromosomes is possible. With the method used, the centromeres are heavily stained with Giemsa dye. In the tumor cells studied the pale staining of the centromeres and pericentric regions of the chromosomes N° 4, 5, 7 and 12 suggest the polymorphism of the heterochromat located in that region. This has been reported by other authors too. To prove this phenomenon, further comparative studies on other ascites tumor cells are needed.
