Synonyms for sSMC

 

Unfortunately sSMC are reported in the literature under a lot of synonyms, which makes finding of all relevant reports not that easy. Here a collection of designations given during the last years:

 

  • sSMC = small supernumerary marker chromosome
  • s-SMC = small supernumerary marker chromosome {167}
  • SMC = supernumerary marker chromosome (e.g. {3})
  • AC / ACH = accessory chromosome {58; 73}
  • SAC = small accessory chromosome {74}
  • ESAC = extra structurally abnormal chromosome {14}
  • extra marker chromosome {7}
  • additional marker chromosome {2}
  • supernumerary micro chromosome {9}
  • accessory marker chromosome {10}
  • extra micro chromosome (e.g. {11})
  • additional chromosome fragments {32}
  • minute (centric) fragment {33}
  • bisatellited marker chromosomes {102}
  • metacentric chromosome fragment {103}
  • SRC = supernumerary ring chromosome (e.g. {16})
  • SBAC = small bisatellited additional chromosomes {93}
  • NMC = neocentric marker chromosome {150}
  • SMRC = supernumerary minute ring chromosome {161}
  • MC = marker chromosome {166}
  • CaNC = cancer associated neochromosomes {170} - exceptionally sSMC can be acquired in neoplasia
