H3K4me2 distribution on the macaque metaphase Xi. (a) Female rhesus macaque metaphase chromosomes (blue) showing the distribution of H3K4me2 (green) and H3K27me3 (red) by indirect immunofluorescence. The location of the Xi is indicated by the white arrow. (b) Female rhesus macaque metaphase Xi (blue) showing the distribution of H3K4me2 (green) and H3K27me3 (red) by indirect immunofluorescence. The tip of the p-arm including the pseudoautosomal region is indicated by the white square bracket. Additional H3K4me2 bands on the Xi are indicated by the white arrowheads. (c) Further examples of H3K4me2 band distribution on the Xi to demonstrate reproducibility of the pattern. Signals indicated as for (b). (d) Human female telomerase immortalized retinal pigment epithelial cell (hTERT-RPE1) Xi showing the location of H3K4me2 (red) signals, as indicated by the white arrowheads and white bracket.
