Ring Chromosomes

Prsten Chromozomy se tvoří, když se dva konce chromozomu spojí nebo „splynou“. To způsobí, že chromozom je spíše kruhová struktura (prstenec) než struktura podobná dlouhé struně.

A ring can form in this way and not have any deleted (missing) chromosomal material. All of the DNA a genes are there, they are just arranged or packaged in a different structure. A ring chromosome can also be formed when there is a “break” on one or both ends of the Chromozomy, and then the ends of the chromosome become joined or “fused.” In this kind of ring, some chromosomal material is deleted or missing.
