In freeze fracture of the Tetrahymena fusion rosetts, the fracture can pass to either side of an intercalated particle by a stochastic process, dependent only on relative bond strength to either side of the intercalation. Any given freeze fracture particle can be found on either the A or B fracture face, with a chance measured by the particle partition co-efficient (Kp).
