Abstract: Alu-PRINS was successful in providing positive identification of euchromatin when oligoprimers were used at either extremity of the consensus Alu sequence. This technique was sensitive, as shown by the ability to detect small regions of euchromatin translocated to the short arm of an acrocentric chromosome. Since the Alu-PRINS technique is rapid and relatively simple, it will be useful in the diagnostic cytogenetics laboratory for the assessment of aberrant short arms of acrocentric satellites. This technique was also useful in defining the structure of small accessory marker chromosomes.
