Abstract
    Chromosomes of Perna viridis were characterized by karyotype analysis, C-banding and nucleolus organizer regions (NORs). The diploid chromosome number was confirmed as 30 and the karyotype is composed of ten metacentric and five submetacentric chromosome pairs. Constitutive heterochromatin blocks were found on all chromosomal pairs except chromosomal pair 15, which showed uniform staining throughout the entire chromosomes. Silver staining revealed nucleolus organizer regions on telomeric region of four chromosomal pairs, viz. 1, 3, 7 and 11. This is the first comprehensive study undertaken on chromosomes of Perna viridis.
