If the centromere is included in the inverted segment, it is called a pericentric inversion. If the centromere is not involved, then the inversion is called a paracentric inversion. Chromosome inversions are generally considered balanced and usually do not confer an abnormal phenotype unless one of the breakpoints disrupts a critical gene. Inversions, however, do interfere with pairing at meiosis and can result in gametes with chromosome abnormalities. 33 34 Part I B A SI C SC I E N C E Carrier of a balanced reciprocal translocation Pairing of chromosomes at meiosis leads to 6 potential gametes Adjacent (North-South) separation plane 1 3 + der(1) der(3) Unbalanced Unbalanced Alternate(Diagonal) Adjacent (East-West) + Normal + Balanced UnbalancedUnbalanced Figure 2-19 Schematic representation of segregation patterns of a diploid gamete with a reciprocal balanced translocation.
