Abstract

Hybridization of radioactive nucleic acids with the DNA of cytological preparations shows that the sequences of mouse satellite DNA are located in the centromeric heterochromatin of the mouse chromosomes. Other types of heterochromatin in the cytological preparations do not contain satellite DNA.
