Original Investigations

Summary

Using buccal mucosal smears from 4 men with Klinefelter's syndrome and 46,XX chromosome complement it was discovered that there was no brightly fluorescent material either in the nuclei or in Barr's body. The small acrocentric chromosomes had a typical G-group fluorescence pattern whilst the C-group chromosomes revealed no brightly fluorescent material.

Zusammenfassung

Bei keinem von 4 Männern mit Klinefelter-Syndrom und 46,XX-Chromosomenberund wurde das stark fluorescierende Material bei Mundschleimhautabstrichen in Zellkernen oder in Chromatinkörperchen festgestellt. Die kleinen akrozentrischen Chromosomen hatten das typische fluorescienrende Kennzeichen der Gruppe G, und auch bei den Chromosomen aus der Gruppe C wurde das stark fluorescierende Material nicht gefunden.
