De novo translocation heterozygote with three reciprocal translocations.
  1. J L Watt,
  2. D A Couzin

These abnormalities have apparently arisen de novo and seem to have only relatively minor phenotypic effects. The meiotic possibilities are discussed and cytogenetic markers suggest that the damage may have occurred in a paternal gamete.
