Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization (FISH) Do chromosomes occupy distinct domains in nucleus? P. Lichter et al., 1988, Hum Genet. 80: 224 How could you test this? Fix cells Hybridize with mixture of fluorescent DNA probes specific for sequences along an entire chromo- some Visualize by fluorescence microscopy

How do we know that chromatin forms loops in vivo ? FISH with fluorescently labeled DNA probes complementary to specific DNA sites located at known distances along a chromosome Expected results if chromatin forms loops? Does not form loops? What control DNA could you compare your results to? Fig. 10-25 Lodish et al., 2004
