Abstract

Electron microscopic analysis was carried out on the synaptonemal complexes of 10 male common voles (Microtus arvalis) caught in 1990 in Belorussia. In the early pachytene stage of spermatocytes of four males, a heteromorphic bivalent has been found in one of five large autosomes. In the central region of the bivalent one of the lateral elements is in the form of a D-loop, characteristic of insertion/deletion heterozygotes. However, high-resolution G-band staining of mitotic chromosomes from fibroblasts shows no significant differences in the G-band pattern between homologs.
