Abstract

Electronmicroscopic study has revealed a dicentric chromosome in the root tip cells of diploid Aloe vera, hitherto unreported in somatic cells of plants. The morphological aspects are described and the implications of such structural features of the dicentric are addressed in a functional perspective. It is also proposed that the presence of two functional kinetochores need not invariably lead to chromosome instability and loss.
