Abstract

SUMMARY: Conditions for obtaining colchicine-induced metaphase arrest of the chromosomes of the cellular slime mould are described. Using this technique, which increases the mitotic index of exponentially growing amoebae from 1·5 to 11%, it has been demonstrated conclusively that has a haploid chromosome number of seven and that strain (24397) is not highly aneuploid as has recently been suggested. Each of the seven chromosomes can be identified by a characteristic banding pattern seen after staining with Giemsa.
