Homologous pairs of chromosomes with an inversion may have a greater chance of generating a gamete with an unbalanced chromosome by misalignment at the inverted segment in meiosis followed by recombination within the inverted segments. Molecular Mechanism of Genomic Disorders Molecular mechanisms for interstitial chromosomal rearrangements (deletions, duplications, and inversions) are perhaps the best characterized inherited chromosomal disorders to date. 34 De novo genomic rearrangements often observed in patients with genomic disorders are highly recurrent and frequent (approximately 1 Ã 10-4).
