The frequencies of the various segregation patterns were determined at telophase II by the number of maternal chromosome groups present (incomplete united bipolar segregation was identified by the presence of two groups of maternal chromosomes and some isolated chromosomes) (Table I).
Variation in the degree of synapsis in eggs from triploids might influence subsequent meiotic events following inhibition of PBI, though it was [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE I OMITTED] difficult to exactly correlate the completeness of synapsis with subsequent types of chromosome segregation. Chromosome segregation in control groups seemed to be unaffected by completeness of synapsis: most of the eggs completed two meioses in a manner similar to that seen among diploid eggs - the extra set of chromosomes segregating randomly (Longo et al., 1993; Guo and Allen, 1994a).
If united bipolar segregation is the principal mechanism for tetraploid induction in Pacific oyster eggs, there is an important practical implication.
These criteria yielded 358 small companies with segregation of duties material weaknesses disclosed by management, out of approximately 700 smaller companies with ineffective internal controls due to any type of material weakness.
The authors analyzed the management report on internal control for each of the 116 sample companies in order to understand the nature of the segregation of duties weaknesses.
As shown in Exhibit 2, the vast majority of companies described their segregation of duties weaknesses as too few employees (90 companies).
