Results of a lot of investigations, which are done in lab animals and men, testify that the location of some chromosomes in spread metaphase plate is not random and keeps definite pattern of chromosome space distribution in interphase nucleus (e.g.: Zakharov et al., 1982; Prokofyeva-Belgovskaya, 1986). Now chromosome ability is well recognized to form associations in many Mammalian species. It is supposed, that the associations of acrocentric chromosomes can account for a chromosome nondisjunction in mitosis and meiosis and translocations formation. In this connection, it is very important to investigate the phenomenon of acrocentric chromosome associations and their correlation with somatic mutation frequencies in normal or pathological cattle
