Glossary Term Robertsonian Translocation
Definition A particular type of translocation in which the breakpoints in the two chromosomes occur at or near the centromere, followed by centric fusion such that the long arms now form a metacentric chromosome with a single centromere. Any small fragments generated in the exchange are usually lost.
