Abstract:Fluorescence in situ hybridization o­n human metaphase chromosomes is detected by near-field scanning optical microscopy. This combination of cytochemical and scanning probe techniques enables the localization and identification of several fluorescently labelled genomic DNA fragments o­n a single chromosome with an unprecedented resolution. Three nucleic acid probes are used: pUC1.77, p1-79 and the plasmid probe alpha-spectrin. The hybridization signals are very well resolved in the near-field fluorescence images, while the exact location of the probes can be correlated accurately with the chromosome topography as afforded by the shear force image.
