  1. Chr: Chromosome, CTO: Cercocebus torquatus, N: number of cells analyzed, SC: synaptonemal complex, Inv: inverted region. CTO6p: inversion simulated in the small chromosome arm. CTO6q: inversion simulated in the long chromosome arm. # CTO6 density (expressed as MLH1 foci /μm) inside and outside the inversion refers to the simulated region for the comparison in each case. *indicates statistical significance (p-value < 0.05) when comparing reorganized region with simulated inversion in the collinear chromosome CTO6 (Mann Whitney U test).
