S Vani, K Sakunthala Devi, M Kalyan Chakravarthy and V Manasa
Eleven Murrah buffaloes were utilized to study the basic chromosomal characteristics using Short term lymphocyte culture technique. The karyotypes were studied to find out numerical chromosomal abnormalities by measuring relative length (%) as well as centromeric index of each chromosome. Diploid chromosomal number were found to be 50 including XY in males and XX chromosomes in females. Each karyotype consisted of 5 pairs of submetacentric and 19 pairs of acrocentric chromosomes. X chromosome was found to be the largest acrocentric chromosome. The relative length of chromosome no. 1 was found to be highest in both males and females, while that of Y chromosome was found to be least in males.
