The DA/DAPI technique has been found to be useful in the identification of specific chromosomal regions on human chromosomes. The realization that distamycin A (DA) is no longer commercially available has necessitated the development of an alternative technique. We describe a technique, MG/DAPI, which substitutes the AT-specific dye methyl green for distamycin A and gives results identical to those of the DA/DAPI technique.
