  1. *Pairwise absolute measurements of distances between the closest pair of non-homologous chromosomes are expressed as relative distances normalized to the nuclear diameter to account for differences in nuclear size. The nuclear area in an equatorial image plane was used as an indicator of nuclear size. n = number of cells analyzed.
