Question: how can i tell the difference visually between acentric fragments and dicentric fragments.
A dicentric fragment will have two centromeres, while an acentric fragment will have no centromere. You can typically see the difference visually by using microscopy on chromosomes during metaphase. Dicentric fragments will appear as a "U" shape or two chromatids stuck together at the middle, while acentric fragments will appear as a single chromatid without a centromere. It's important to note that identifying these fragments is usually done by trained professionals in a laboratory setting, as it requires a high level of expertise and specialized equipment.
