Mutations - Inversion

An inversion is a chromosome mutation that results when a segment of a chromosome (in this case, the B-C-D region) is cut out of the chromosome, turned 180 degrees, and then placed back in the chromosome. Usually genetic material is not lost when an inversion takes place, although there can be phenotypic consequences when the inversion breakpoints occur within genes or regions that control that gene expression.
