chro·ma·tid

(krō′mə-tĭd)
Either of the two strands formed when a chromosome duplicates itself during cell division. The chromatids are joined together by a single centromere and later separate to become individual chromosomes. See more at meiosis, mitosis.

Induced chromosomal aberrations can be classified into two main classes - chromosome type aberration and chromatids type aberrations.
For example, during egg formation, four chromatids are formed from two chromosomes, but only one makes it into the egg.
An alternative explanation would be the segregation lag of all four chromatids during mitosis and trisomy 8 resulting from the subsequent loss of one of the four chromosome 8 s'.
They can be formed from eccentric chromosomes, chromatid fragments, whole chromosomes, or chromatids that lag behind in anaphase and are left outside the daughter nuclei in telophase.
Sister chromatid exchange (SCE) analysis is a method that allows the physical quantification of exchanged genetic material between sister chromatids during in vitro mitosis.
In the ring model cohesin holds sister chromatids in position--note this is a topological model, not a binding model.
Triploidy owing to a non-disjunction event in meiosis 2 will have a preponderance of similar-sized alleles, as two similar sister chromatids separate during this process.
In this study, the author proposed that the non-repair of the chromosomes that had lost the telomeric region generates cycles of breakage-fusion-bridge, since there is the fusion of sister chromatids with no telomeres, transforming them into a chromosome with two centromeres.
Telophase###Sister chromatids are forming scattered
When male mice carrying the Y chromosome containing inverted loxP sites are mated with females carrying a Cre gene, chromosome loss is induced by recombination which is mediated by Cre present between the loxP sites on sister chromatids during embryogenesis.
