The sequence of centromere separation in human chorionic cells was analyzed in two laboratories. Despite of certain interexaminer variations, in both series chromosomes 18, 2, 12, 4, 5, 17 and X proved to be early dividing and the acrocentrics were the last to separate. The pattern was very similar to those observed in other human tissues, which reflects a species-specific sequence of centromere separation.
