Metaphase chromosomes were obtained from kidney cells. The diploid chromosome number was 2n=100, consisting of 7 pairs of metacentric, 22 pairs of submetacentric and 21 pairs of subteloacrocentric chromosomes. The arm number (NF) was 158. Constitutive heterochromatin regions with C-banding were determined on the centromeres of chromosomes. NOR was observed on the short arms of 2 pairs of submetacentric chromosomes. This study is a contribution to cytogenetics of Anatolian cyprinids. Keywords : Cyprinidae, karyotype, C-banding, NOR
