Figure 11

Karyotype array of the cervical carcinoma CaSki. The CaSki array with the attached table shows that the total chromosome number is quasi-clonal at 75±3. The copy numbers of 65-100% 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 19 of 20 cells. Comparison of the karyotype array of CaSki with five carcinomas shown above in Figures 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 shows at a glance that all six carcinomas have distinct individual and clonal karyotypes. Note, about 60 non-clonal marker chromosomes of the 20 karyotypes of CaSki listed in the table are not shown in the graph to allow sufficient resolution for the clonal chromosomes.
