X-linked deafness-2 (DFNX2) phenotype associated with a paracentric
inversion upstream of POU3F4.

The aforementioned rearrangements are intrachromosomal paracentric
inversions and account for the vast majority of variants found in PTC.
The structural changes involving the long arm of chromosome 3 at bands 3q21 and 3q26.2 in the forms of inversion and translocation--namely, paracentric
inversion [inv(3)(q21q26.2), referred to as inv(3) hereafter] and homologous translocations [t(3;3)(q21;q26.2), referred to as t(3;3) hereafter]--in myeloid neoplasms have long been recognized.
Meanwhile, one or several chromosomal abnormalities, especially autosomal aberrations (including Robertsonian and balanced translocations) and pericentric and paracentric
inversions, have been documented in about 8% of men with severe oligozoospermia (7).
However, Rothfels (1989) hypothesized the possibility of "mating trials" within sympatric populations of black flies (Simuliidae) between taxa differentiated by paracentric
chromosomal inversions in males.

A different fundamental arm number, which may be attributed to the intra-chromosomal changes involving pericentric and paracentric
inversion, suggests an origin from the same primitive ancestor.
labrosus from the Capivara Reservoir (Carvalho and Dias, 2007) and from the Tibagi River (this study), but in terminal and interstitial positions, respectively, it is possible that there was a paracentric
inversion in a subtelocentric pair bearing 5S ribosomal genes.
In mammalian sex chromosomes, a series of Y inversions disrupting X-Y recombination have been reported (Lahn & Page 1999); in plants such as Silene latifolia, Y chromosome evolution involved two large inversions, one paracentric
and one pericentric (Hobza et al.
Though the 'paracentric
' theme might sound suspiciously nebulous, like the dread parametric, it loosely means 'away from the centre'.
