The case also illustrates how one possible way of understanding Global History--through Michel Hogan's denationalization of subjects and Tony Smith's pericentric perspective--allows us to build a broader interpretation of the Cold War in Latin America.
For MDS and AML with jumping translocations of 1q induced by hypomethylation at 1q pericentric heterochromatin, the treatment by azanucleosides may rely on the cytotoxicity effect.

Akodon cursor (ACU) presents variation in diploid numbers (2n = 14 to 16) due to a complex rearrangement involving chromosomes 1 and 3, in which pericentric inversions followed by a centric fusion gave rise to a karyotype with 2n = 15 when in heterozygosis or 2n = 14 when in homozygosis [6,8].
We found that the fluorescence intensity of the LC3 II protein was increased in AngII-induced cardiomyocytes and abundant in intracellular and pericentric regions.

They also indicated centromeric fusions and additions/deletions of C-heterochromatin, as well as occasional pericentric inversions, euchromatin deletions, missing chromosomes and centromeric shifts, as major mechanisms of chromosomal change.
Meanwhile, one or several chromosomal abnormalities, especially autosomal aberrations (including Robertsonian and balanced translocations) and pericentric and paracentric inversions, have been documented in about 8% of men with severe oligozoospermia (7).

bimaculatus showed the same diploid number (2n=50) but with differences in the karyotype formulas, probably due to rearrangements such as pericentric inversions.
