The risk of producing unbalanced gametes in heterozygous inversion carriers mostly depends on the occurrence of recombination events within the inverted segment. Recombination determines the possibility of producing chromosomes with duplications/deficiencies (pericentric inversions) or with duplications/deficiencies which furthermore appear as dicentric and acentric fragments (paracentric inversions). In this work, a general description of the close relationship between the occurrence of… CONTINUE READING
