Chiasma pattern in a carrier of a 14; 14 Robertsonian translocation. Spermatocyte at the Diakinesis/Metaphase I from a human male carrier of a 14; 14 Robertsonian translocation, stained with C-banding (left) and orcein (right) where the univalent 14; 14 is arrowed. Note the parallel centromeres, showing that synapsis has occurred between chromatids from the two different homologs, and the occurrence of a single chiasma very near the telomere. Reproduced from [23].
