Table 5 Summary of differences observed in radial positioning observed in familial RCT cases. Results presented in details in Table 3 and Fig. 4. ‘+’ means the difference in topology of particular centromere in cell nucleus of spermatozoa between father and son (p < 0.01)

  1. S-c: positions of centromeres localized more central in spermatozoa of son when compared to father
  2. S-a: positions of centromeres localized more acrosomal in spermatozoa of son when compared to father
  3. F-p: positions of centromeres localized more peripheral in spermatozoa of father when compared to son
  4. F-c: positions of centromeres localized more central in spermatozoa of father when compared to son
