A chromosome deletion is a mutation in which a part of the chromosome is lost. In individuals heterozygous for a deletion, the normal chromosome loops out during prophase I of meiosis. Deletions do not undergo reverse mutation. They cause recessive genes on the undeleted chromosome to be expressed and cause imbalances in gene products.
