Examples of FISH results in the prairie vole. FISH was performed using pairs of prairie vole BAC clones orthologous to the same mouse chromosome hybridized to male vole metaphase spreads. Partial metaphase spreads are shown in both images. A) A pair of prairie vole BAC clones orthologous to the mouse X chromosome [CH232-3K03 (red signal) and CH232-1A13 (green signal)] are linked to the X chromosome in prairie vole. B) A pair of prairie vole clones orthologous to mouse chromosome 10 are unlinked in prairie vole and mapped to chromosome 3 (CH232-4H10, red signal) and chromosome 24 (CH232-4I13, green signal).
