Table 4 Orientation of normal chromosomes 8, 15, 16, 18 and 19 to each other in cells with and without an sSMC.

From: Centromeric association of small supernumerary marker chromosomes with their sister-chromosomes detected by three dimensional molecular cytogenetics

  T - together [%] N - nearby [%] O - opposite [%] number of nuclei
