The heteromorphism of constitutive heterochromatin in chromosomes #1, #9, and #16 was investigated in 44 chronic myelocytic leukemia patients and 44 controls using bone marrow and peripheral blood lymphocyte cultures. A significant increase in the length of C-band region in all the three chromosome pairs as well as a statistically significant difference in the homologs of chromosome #1 was observed in chronic myelocytic leukemia patients when compared with the controls. The frequency of inversions was also greater in the patients than in the controls. A random translocation of 22q was found on either homolog of chromosome #9.
