The authors have declared that no competing interests exist. Further analysis shows that such localization corresponds to tandem and end-to-end arrangement of chromosomes within the nuclei. However, microinjected DNA molecules readily recombine with each other through a homologous mechanism.
Sex cells and chromosomes
She covers animals, health and other general science topics. The first sperm cells are formed only from puberty on, before that they are not produced. From a primordial spermcell four sperm cells develop. One is polar to millions. For those compartments of irregular outline, such as the chromosome territories shown here, the intensity gravity centre is often used to approximate territory position.

It is not unlikely that seemingly independent nuclear processes may have unforeseen influences on one another. An alternative method is to use relative spatial positioning of compartments using either the normalised distance between compartment centres right panel or the orbital angle formed by a line connecting compartment centres and the nucleus centre left panel. Manuelidis L Different central nervous system cell types display distinct and nonrandom arrangements of satellite DNA sequences. There are some instances where the importance of considering the full 3D image can be convincingly demonstrated. In addition, the majority of studies have so far been conducted on static, fixed cells. You may find it helpful to search within the site to see how similar or related subjects are covered.

One recent variation on radial analysis has been to fit the smallest possible convex set of polygons around the data of interest. Histochem Cell Biol Using this method, semi-quantitative colocalisation assessments can be made by plotting the signal intensities of the two fluorescent channels from a set of arbitrarily chosen lines drawn through the image. For a conception an egg cell and many sperm are needed. The location of a compartment is random if it cannot be precisely specified prior to observing the nucleus. For more accurate volumes, image segmentation methods such as the Voronoi tessellation procedure have to be applied [ 73 ]. When first learning microinjection, one should try several different degrees of filling and record the results.
