Random single chromatid and nonrandom double chromatid type segregation of human acrocentric chromosomes in BrdU-labeled mitoses


Random single chromatid and nonrandom double chromatid type segregation of human acrocentric chromosomes in BrdU-labeled mitoses

Chromatid segregation was analyzed using satellite association of 5-bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) differentially stained acrocentric chromosomes of human leukocytes. Data were classified into cis and trans configurations in second and third division cycles. It was found that single chromatid types have random segregation (1:1) while nonrandom segregation was noted for double chromatid types. The nonrandom segregation hypothesis of earlier investigators needs to be reexamined.
