Electron microscopic investigations of surface spread synaptonemal complexes in spermatocytes from a 37-year-old man ascertained for infertility detected a pericentric inv(1), and subsequent lymphocyte analysis placed the breakpoints at p32 and q42. Most spermatocytes showed a maturation arrest at mid-pachytene explaining the azoospermia. As in two other comparatively large loop-forming pericentric inversions, initiation of synapsis took place in the middle of the inverted segment. Thus there… CONTINUE READING
