Karyotype derived from mitotic cells of Atractolytocestus huronensis. a Giemsa staining. b C-banded chromosomes showing AT-rich bands (labelled in light blue), counterstained with DAPI (blue). c FISH with telomeric probe (TTAGGG)n (red) counterstained with DAPI (blue); Interstitial telomeric signals are located on of the chromosomes of triplets nos 2, 4, 6, 7 and 8. d FISH with 18S rDNA probe (red) counterstained with DAPI (blue); two loci for 18S rDNA (NORs) are located on each chromosome of the triplet no. 2. Scale-bar: 10 µm
