  • Annotation This advanced course follows Methods in plant cytogenetics I. Aim of the course is to make students familiar with the principles and applications of DNA-DNA fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and immuno-localisation as tools for studying the chromatin and nuclear organization of higher plants. Students will get acquainted with preparation of extended DNA fibres (fibre FISH), immuno-localization of modified histones, immuno-labeling of 5-methyl cytosine, and FISH to immuno-preparations. Advanced methods of fluorescence microscopy and digital photomicrography will be practised. Syllabus Day 1 - introduction in theoretical and practical principles of nuclei isolation and DNA fibre FISH - nuclei isolation from leaves - nuclei extension and fibre FISH hybridization with probes corresponding to ribosomal DNA repeats Day 2 - introduction in multilayer detection of the fluorescence signals and immuno-localisation of modified histones and methylated DNA - fibre FISH multilayer detection - immuno-localisation of modified histones H3metK4 and H3metK9: PART I - immuno-labelling of 5-methyl cytosine on mitotic and meiotic chromosomes - fluorescence microscopy of fibre FISH and immuno-labelled methylcytosine Day 3 - immuno-localisation of modified histones H3metK4 and H3metK9: PART II - fluorescence microscopy of modified histones - advanced analysis using fluorescence microscopy, image capture - computer processing of microscope images (Adobe Photoshop) - conclusions
