Angles between chromosome territories. (a) Scheme of fixed chromosomal angles between
two pairs of chromosomes as predicted by the model of genome separation with antiparallel
orientation [36]. In this example, specific angles are assumed to be about 60° and
120°. A cumulative distribution plot of homologous angles in this model has a steep
increase from 0 to 100% near 180° (not shown). (b) Cumulative distribution of heterologous
angles in this model example. For other chromosome pairs, angles and respective sharp
increases of cumulative graphs would be at other values. Cumulative plots are shown
for the indicated cell types. (c-j) Experimentally observed cumulative distributions
of angles between homologous (c,e,g,i) or heterologous (d,f,h,j) chromosome territories
in the indicated cell types.
