Chromosome specific nondisjunction rates were quantified by dual-colour FISH in spermatocytes II of Robertsonian heterozygous mice with different trivalent combinations or, alternatively, with different genetic backgrounds. We found that such factors do not influence the proneness to nondisjunction of specific chromosomes. Copyright © 2006 S. Karger AG.
