  Satellite sequences in anaphase nuclei
In a wildtype embryo (top) fluorescent in situ hybridization of the 356 satellite sequence near the centromere is visible near the spindle pole
(DNA in blue; satellite in pink)
In embryos carrying the inversion (bottom) the 356 sequence is at the metaphase plate, at the distal end of the chromosome
