In general however, the problem with translocations occurs during meiosis and is manifest as reductions in fertility.
Note that this animal is a translocation heterozygote, having a normal chromosome 1 and 2 in addition to the translocation chromsomes.
A centric fusion is a translocation in which the centromeres of two acrocentric chromosomes fuse to generate one large metacentric chromosome.

  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Chromosomal translocation
Chromosomal translocation of the 4th and 20th chromosome.
In genetics, a chromosome translocation is an abnormal chromosomal rearrangement caused by the interchange of parts between nonhomologous chromosomes.
Also, translocations can be balanced (in an even exchange of material with no genetic information extra or missing) or unbalanced (where the exchange of chromosome material is unequal resulting in extra or missing genes).

 Medical Genetics - Translocation Down Syndrome
In translocation Down syndrome, the extra 21 chromosome may be attached to the #14 chromosome, or to #s13, 15, or 22.
Whenever a translocation is found in a child, the parents' chromosomes are studied to determine whether the translocation was inherited or not.
For example, if the translocation is between #14 and 21, there is a 10 percent to 15 percent chance for Down syndrome in a pregnancy if the mother is the translocation carrier, and a 3 to 5 percent chance if the father is the translocation carrier.

 Robertsonian Translocation
This karyotype is from a woman with 45 chromosomes and a balanced Robertsonian translocation of material between chromosome 13 and 14.
A Robertsonian translocation results when the long arms of two acrocentric chromosomes fuse at the centromere and the two short arms are lost.
Although people with these translocations have only 45 chromosomes in each of their cells, all essential genetic material is present, and they appear normal.

 ABNORMALITIES IN CHROMOSOME STRUCTURE
Individuals and families have been described with a translocation chromosome abnormality and a concurrent genetic condition; the genetic condition occurring because the chromosome breakpoint is in the midst of a gene.
If the translocation is familial (one of the parents is a normal translocation carrier), then it is safe to assume that the fetus carrying a similar translocation is going to be normal.
A Robertsonian translocation is a particular type of translocation involving the reciprocal transfer of the long arms of two of the acrocentric chromosomes: 13, 14, 15, 21 or 22.

 BBC - Health - Conditions - Chromosomal translocation
A translocation is a condition where a fragment of one chromosome is broken off and is then attached to another.
For example, imagine a translocation of part of chromosome 21 onto chromosome 14 (this is the situation in about 4 per cent of people with Down's Syndrome).
In a balanced translocation (found in the parent of an affected child, the person doesn't have any additional genetic material - they simply have a smaller than normal chromosome 21 with a piece broken off, a normal second chromosome 21, a chromosome 14 with the broken piece of 21 attached, and a normal chromosome 14.

 Translocation Down Syndrome - Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
In translocation Down syndrome, the extra #21 chromosome may be attached to the #14 chromosome, or to #13, 15 or 22.
The parent will actually have 45 total chromosomes in each cell of his or her body, but will still be normal and healthy because he or she still has only two copies of each chromosome.
For example, if the translocation is between #14 and 21, there is a 10 to 15 percent chance for Down syndrome in a pregnancy if the mother is the translocation carrier, and a 3 to 5 percent chance if the father is the translocation carrier.

 MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia: Translocation
Usually refers to genetic translocations, in which part of a chromosome is transferred to another chromosome. This type of translocation can result in a bigger, flawed, chromosome; in other cases, the two chromosomes will trade pieces with each other.
Genetic translocations can cause serious disorders, such as Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia.

 University of Manitoba: Tillage Translocation and Tillage Erosion - Department of Soil Science   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The distributions of tracer before and after tillage are used to calculate translocation, forward translocation from the distribution parallel to the direction of tillage and lateral translocation from the distribution perpendicular to the direction of tillage (see Figure 1).
For the less common method, a summation curve is generated from a tracer distribution by employing convolution, and translocation per unit width of tillage is calculated from this curve.
The calculation of tillage erosion from translocation measurements is simply the difference in translocation between two points divided by the separating distance.

 Translocation Bibliography; All - 1989-early96
This translocation was to assist in recovery of the endangered Selkirk population.
On average, 26% of translocations released captive-reared animals, 29% of releases were to areas on the periphery or outside of historic species ranges, only 32% were soft releases that provided opportunity for postrelease monitoring, and, in 24% of translocations, there was no professional examination of animals for parasites, disease, or injury prior to release.
Translocated wild animals also succumb to endemic disease: heartwater in the Transvaal bushveld prevents the translocation of springbok into this area because this species is susceptible to this disease, and babesiosis has been reported in naive sable antelope (Hippotragus niger) imported into the RSA from Europe.

 Translocation of DNA through Synthetic Nanopores
To shorten the translocation times to a practical duration, the simulations were done at 1.3 V. As a reference point for DNA movement through a pore, we use the DNA center of mass (CoM).
To ascertain if the translocation halted at the same cross section in both pores, we plot in the inset of the figure the local radius of the pore around the first DNA base pair.
In addition to the driving electric force, three types of interactions affect the duration of the translocation: (i) mechanical friction between DNA and the pore; (ii) reduction of the driving force by the counter ion condensation, decreasing the DNA effective charge; and (iii) the hydrophobic adhesion of bases to the pore surface.

One factor thought to be important in the aetiology of SIRS is failure of the intestinal barrier resulting in bacterial translocation and subsequent sepsis.
Factors, which detrimentally affect intestinal barrier function, are discussed, as are methods that may attenuate bacterial translocation in the critically ill patient.
A better understanding of factors that influence translocation could result in the implementation of interventions which contribute to improved patient outcomes.
