Figure 10

Karyotype array of the cervical carcinoma ME-180. The ME-180 array with the attached table shows that the total chromosome number is quasi-clonal at 63±2. The copy numbers of 60-100% of the chromosomes were clonal forming parallel lines in the array. The non-clonal chromosomes included intact chromosomes with near-clonal copy numbers and new non-clonal marker chromosomes found in 16 of 20 cells. Comparison of the karyotype array of ME-180 with those of the four carcinomas shown above in Figures 6, 7, 8 and 9 reveals again at a glance that all five carcinomas have distinct individual and clonal karyotypes.
