Microdissection of the pericentromeric/centromeric region of the Indian muntjac chromosome X + 3. (a) The metaphase spread of a female Indian muntjac. Chromosomes 1, 2, and X + 3 are indicated. (b) The centromeric/pericentromeric region of an Indian muntjac chromosome X + 3 is shown before microdissection. (c) The same chromosome as in panel (b) is shown after the centromeric/pericentromeric region is scraped by microdissection. Scale bar = 10 μm.
