Inversions are well-known structural chromosomal rearrangements in humans and pigs. Such rearrangements generally have no effect on the carriers' phenotype. However, the presence of an inversion can lead to spermatogenesis impairments and to the production of unbalanced (recombinant) gametes, responsible for early miscarriages, stillbirth, or congenital abnormalities. Sperm samples from boars heterozygote for pericentric inv(2)(p1.1;q1.1), inv(2) (p1.1;q2.1), inv(1)(p2.1;q2.10), or inv(1)(p2.4… CONTINUE READING
