Congenital conditions in individuals with a female karyotype, in which the development of the gonadal or anatomical sex is atypical.
Congenital conditions in individuals with a male karyotype, in which the development of the gonadal or anatomical sex is atypical.
In gonochoristic organisms, congenital conditions in which development of chromosomal, gonadal, or anatomical sex is atypical. Effects from exposure to abnormal levels of GONADAL HORMONES in the maternal environment, or disruption of the function of those hormones by ENDOCRINE DISRUPTORS are included.
The processes of anatomical and physiological changes related to sexual or reproductive functions during the life span of a human or an animal, from FERTILIZATION to DEATH. These include SEX DETERMINATION PROCESSES; SEX DIFFERENTIATION; SEXUAL MATURATION; and changes during AGING.
Defects in the SEX DETERMINATION PROCESS in 46, XY individuals that result in abnormal gonadal development and deficiencies in TESTOSTERONE and subsequently ANTIMULLERIAN HORMONE or other factors required for normal male sex development. This leads to the development of female phenotypes (male to female sex reversal), normal to tall stature, and bilateral streak or dysgenic gonads which are susceptible to GONADAL TISSUE NEOPLASMS. An XY gonadal dysgenesis is associated with structural abnormalities on the Y CHROMOSOME, a mutation in the GENE, SRY, or a mutation in other autosomal genes that are involved in sex determination.
The 46,XX gonadal dysgenesis may be sporadic or familial. Familial XX gonadal dysgenesis is transmitted as an autosomal recessive trait and its locus was mapped to chromosome 2. Mutation in the gene for the FSH receptor (RECEPTORS, FSH) was detected. Sporadic XX gonadal dysgenesis is heterogeneous and has been associated with trisomy-13 and trisomy-18. These phenotypic females are characterized by a normal stature, sexual infantilism, bilateral streak gonads, amenorrhea, elevated plasma LUTEINIZING HORMONE and FSH concentration.
Clinical treatments used to change the physiological sexual characteristics of an individual.
Congenital conditions in individuals in which male GONADS develop in a genetic female (female to male sex reversal).
Development of male secondary SEX CHARACTERISTICS in the FEMALE. It is due to the effects of androgenic metabolites of precursors from endogenous or exogenous sources, such as ADRENAL GLANDS or therapeutic drugs.
A complex neoplasm composed of a mixture of gonadal elements, such as large primordial GERM CELLS, immature SERTOLI CELLS or GRANULOSA CELLS of the sex cord, and gonadal stromal cells. Gonadoblastomas are most often associated with gonadal dysgenesis, 46, XY.
A transcription factor and member of the nuclear receptor family NR5 that is expressed throughout the adrenal and reproductive axes during development. It plays an important role in sexual differentiation, formation of primary steroidogenic tissues, and their functions in post-natal and adult life. It regulates the expression of key steroidogenic enzymes.
Conditions of sexual ambiguity in which the individual possesses gonadal tissues of both sexes, tissues from the OVARY and the TESTIS. There can be a testis on one side and an ovary on the other (lateral), or there may be combined ovarian and testicular tissue (ovotestes) on each side (bilateral). The karyotype may be 46,XX; 46,XY; or a mosaic of 46,XX/46,XY. These disorders have historically been called true hermaphroditism.
An inherited condition characterized by multiple malformations of CARTILAGE and bone including CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS; midface hypoplasia; radiohumeral SYNOSTOSIS; CHOANAL ATRESIA; femoral bowing; neonatal fractures; and multiple joint CONTRACTURES and, occasionally, urogenital, gastrointestinal or cardiac defects. In utero exposure to FLUCONAZOLE, as well as mutations in at least two separate genes are associated with this condition - POR (encoding P450 (cytochrome) oxidoreductase (NADPH-FERRIHEMOPROTEIN REDUCTASE)) and FGFR2 (encoding FIBROBLAST GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR 2).
A disorder of sexual development transmitted as an X-linked recessive trait. These patients have a karyotype of 46,XY with end-organ resistance to androgen due to mutations in the androgen receptor (RECEPTORS, ANDROGEN) gene. Severity of the defect in receptor quantity or quality correlates with their phenotypes. In these genetic males, the phenotypic spectrum ranges from those with normal female external genitalia, through those with genital ambiguity as in Reifenstein Syndrome, to that of a normal male with INFERTILITY.
Validation of the SEX of an individual by inspection of the GONADS and/or by genetic tests.
A transcription factor that plays an essential role in the development of the TESTES. It is encoded by a gene on the Y chromosome and contains a specific HMG-BOX DOMAIN that is found within members of the SOX family of transcription factors.
The stages of development of the psychological aspects of sexuality from birth to adulthood; i.e., oral, anal, genital, and latent periods.
The external and internal organs related to reproduction.
Congenital conditions of atypical sexual development associated with abnormal sex chromosome constitutions including MONOSOMY; TRISOMY; and MOSAICISM.
A group of inherited disorders of the ADRENAL GLANDS, caused by enzyme defects in the synthesis of cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) and/or ALDOSTERONE leading to accumulation of precursors for ANDROGENS. Depending on the hormone imbalance, congenital adrenal hyperplasia can be classified as salt-wasting, hypertensive, virilizing, or feminizing. Defects in STEROID 21-HYDROXYLASE; STEROID 11-BETA-HYDROXYLASE; STEROID 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYLASE; 3-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3-HYDROXYSTEROID DEHYDROGENASES); TESTOSTERONE 5-ALPHA-REDUCTASE; or steroidogenic acute regulatory protein; among others, underlie these disorders.
A microsomal cytochrome P450 enzyme that catalyzes the 17-alpha-hydroxylation of progesterone or pregnenolone and subsequent cleavage of the residual two carbons at C17 in the presence of molecular oxygen and NADPH-FERRIHEMOPROTEIN REDUCTASE. This enzyme, encoded by CYP17 gene, generates precursors for glucocorticoid, androgen, and estrogen synthesis. Defects in CYP17 gene cause congenital adrenal hyperplasia (ADRENAL HYPERPLASIA, CONGENITAL) and abnormal sexual differentiation.
The male gonad containing two functional parts: the SEMINIFEROUS TUBULES for the production and transport of male germ cells (SPERMATOGENESIS) and the interstitial compartment containing LEYDIG CELLS that produce ANDROGENS.
A major affective disorder marked by severe mood swings (manic or major depressive episodes) and a tendency to remission and recurrence.
Mapping of the KARYOTYPE of a cell.
Maleness or femaleness as a constituent element or influence contributing to the production of a result. It may be applicable to the cause or effect of a circumstance. It is used with human or animal concepts but should be differentiated from SEX CHARACTERISTICS, anatomical or physiological manifestations of sex, and from SEX DISTRIBUTION, the number of males and females in given circumstances.
Psychiatric illness or diseases manifested by breakdowns in the adaptational process expressed primarily as abnormalities of thought, feeling, and behavior producing either distress or impairment of function.
Those characteristics that distinguish one SEX from the other. The primary sex characteristics are the OVARIES and TESTES and their related hormones. Secondary sex characteristics are those which are masculine or feminine but not directly related to reproduction.
Persistent and disabling ANXIETY.
Those disorders that have a disturbance in mood as their predominant feature.
A potent androgenic steroid and major product secreted by the LEYDIG CELLS of the TESTIS. Its production is stimulated by LUTEINIZING HORMONE from the PITUITARY GLAND. In turn, testosterone exerts feedback control of the pituitary LH and FSH secretion. Depending on the tissues, testosterone can be further converted to DIHYDROTESTOSTERONE or ESTRADIOL.
Any detectable and heritable change in the genetic material that causes a change in the GENOTYPE and which is transmitted to daughter cells and to succeeding generations.
An infant during the first month after birth.
An approach of practicing medicine with the goal to improve and evaluate patient care. It requires the judicious integration of best research evidence with the patient's values to make decisions about medical care. This method is to help physicians make proper diagnosis, devise best testing plan, choose best treatment and methods of disease prevention, as well as develop guidelines for large groups of patients with the same disease. (from JAMA 296 (9), 2006)
Tumors or cancer of the TESTIS. Germ cell tumors (GERMINOMA) of the testis constitute 95% of all testicular neoplasms.
A radiosensitive, malignant neoplasm of the testis, thought to be derived from primordial germ cells of the sexually undifferentiated embryonic gonad. There are three variants: classical (typical), the most common type; anaplastic; and spermatocytic. The classical seminoma is composed of fairly well differentiated sheets or cords of uniform polygonal or round cells (seminoma cells), each cell having abundant clear cytoplasm, distinct cell membranes, a centrally placed round nucleus, and one or more nucleoli. In the female, a grossly and histologically identical neoplasm, known as dysgerminoma, occurs. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Neoplasms composed of primordial GERM CELLS of embryonic GONADS or of elements of the germ layers of the EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in the gonads or present in an embryo or FETUS.
A malignant ovarian neoplasm, thought to be derived from primordial germ cells of the sexually undifferentiated embryonic gonad. It is the counterpart of the classical seminoma of the testis, to which it is both grossly and histologically identical. Dysgerminomas comprise 16% of all germ cell tumors but are rare before the age of 10, although nearly 50% occur before the age of 20. They are generally considered of low-grade malignancy but may spread if the tumor extends through its capsule and involves lymph nodes or blood vessels. (Dorland, 27th ed; DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1646)
Branch of medicine concerned with the prevention and control of disease and disability, and the promotion of physical and mental health of the population on the international, national, state, or municipal level.
A developmental defect in which a TESTIS or both TESTES failed to descend from high in the ABDOMEN to the bottom of the SCROTUM. Testicular descent is essential to normal SPERMATOGENESIS which requires temperature lower than the BODY TEMPERATURE. Cryptorchidism can be subclassified by the location of the maldescended testis.
A condition caused by the excessive secretion of ANDROGENS from the ADRENAL CORTEX; the OVARIES; or the TESTES. The clinical significance in males is negligible. In women, the common manifestations are HIRSUTISM and VIRILISM as seen in patients with POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME and ADRENOCORTICAL HYPERFUNCTION.
A complex disorder characterized by infertility, HIRSUTISM; OBESITY; and various menstrual disturbances such as OLIGOMENORRHEA; AMENORRHEA; ANOVULATION. Polycystic ovary syndrome is usually associated with bilateral enlarged ovaries studded with atretic follicles, not with cysts. The term, polycystic ovary, is misleading.
Diminished effectiveness of INSULIN in lowering blood sugar levels: requiring the use of 200 units or more of insulin per day to prevent HYPERGLYCEMIA or KETOSIS.
A condition observed in WOMEN and CHILDREN when there is excess coarse body hair of an adult male distribution pattern, such as facial and chest areas. It is the result of elevated ANDROGENS from the OVARIES, the ADRENAL GLANDS, or exogenous sources. The concept does not include HYPERTRICHOSIS, which is an androgen-independent excessive hair growth.
A 51-amino acid pancreatic hormone that plays a major role in the regulation of glucose metabolism, directly by suppressing endogenous glucose production (GLYCOGENOLYSIS; GLUCONEOGENESIS) and indirectly by suppressing GLUCAGON secretion and LIPOLYSIS. Native insulin is a globular protein comprised of a zinc-coordinated hexamer. Each insulin monomer containing two chains, A (21 residues) and B (30 residues), linked by two disulfide bonds. Insulin is used as a drug to control insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 1).
Compounds that interact with ANDROGEN RECEPTORS in target tissues to bring about the effects similar to those of TESTOSTERONE. Depending on the target tissues, androgenic effects can be on SEX DIFFERENTIATION; male reproductive organs, SPERMATOGENESIS; secondary male SEX CHARACTERISTICS; LIBIDO; development of muscle mass, strength, and power.
Abnormally infrequent menstruation.
The occupational discipline of the traditional Chinese methods of ACUPUNCTURE THERAPY for treating disease by inserting needles along specific pathways or meridians.
Gait abnormalities that are a manifestation of nervous system dysfunction. These conditions may be caused by a wide variety of disorders which affect motor control, sensory feedback, and muscle strength including: CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; or MUSCULAR DISEASES.
Manner or style of walking.
Incorrect diagnoses after clinical examination or technical diagnostic procedures.
Impaired ambulation not attributed to sensory impairment or motor weakness. FRONTAL LOBE disorders; BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES (e.g., PARKINSONIAN DISORDERS); DEMENTIA, MULTI-INFARCT; ALZHEIMER DISEASE; and other conditions may be associated with gait apraxia.
Planning, organizing, and administering activities in an office.
A term used in Eastern European research literature on brain and behavior physiology for cortical functions. It refers to the highest level of integrative function of the brain, centered in the CEREBRAL CORTEX, regulating language, thought, and behavior via sensory, motor, and cognitive processes.

Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome consists of vaginal aplasia with other müllerian (ie, paramesonephric) duct abnormalities. Its penetrance varies, as does the involvement of other organ systems.
The clinical presentation, imaging, treatment, and pathology of a case of neuroglial heterotopia in the nasopharynx causing airway obstruction in a newborn are reported from Columbus Childrens Hospital, OH. MRI and CT showed a cystic mass filling the nasopharynx with a midline bony defect in the sphenoid bone above the clivus. Posterior nasal endoscopy visualized the cystic lesion prior to surgical removal. Connection with CSF and subarachnoid space was excluded. At 6-month follow-up, developmental miletones were normal, and repeat CT showed no evidence of recurrence of the mass. Histopathology of the lesion showed choroid plexus, glial, and respiratory-like epithelial cells. [1]. COMMENT. Reviewing the literature, the authors found reports of 30 cases of pharyngeal neuroglial heterotopia. Both CT and MRI are recommended in the assessment of nasopharyngeal masses. CT visualizes any bony deformities of the skull base, and MRI detects intracranial connections through the skull defect. ...
In the current study, we mapped the molecular breakpoints in an MRKH female with a de novo 46,XX,t(3;16)(p22.3;p13.3)dn. A chromosomal microarray was used to narrow down the breakpoints of both derivative chromosomes to within 13.6 kb on der(3) and within 1.9 kb on der(16). No deletions/insertions were identified, which could have been potential confounders in this patient. No gene was directly disrupted, but the genes closest on either side of the breakpoint became prime positional candidate genes. We did not amplify and clone the breakpoints in this patient since the breakpoint region is not contained within a structural gene. TRIM71 (tripartite motif-containing 71) on the centromeric side of the breakpoint (Fig. 2) has been reported to be involved in the timing of organ formation during development [28], while CNOT10 on the telomeric side of the breakpoint is involved in transcription [29]. We did not identify mutations in our available sample of 51 MRKH patients in these genes, which ...

An increasing number of familial cases suggest that MRKH syndrome can be inherited as an autosomal dominant incompletely penetrant trait, either due to single gene mutation or chromosomal imbalances [1]. Clinical features are consistent with a developmental defect attributable to an initial affection of the intermediate mesoderm leading to an alteration of the blastema of the cervicothoracic somites and the pronephric ducts [6], but developmental genes investigated, such as WT1, HOXA7, HOXA13 and PBX1, did not reveal any pathogenic mutation [7, 8]. Among chromosome causes, an identical t(12;14)(q14;q31) detected in two unrelated Indian females, a maternally inherited terminal deletion of 4q and 22q11.21 deletion, overlapping the DiGeorge syndrome region, have been described in females with syndromic MRKH. However, so far no candidate gene was identified in the unbalanced regions [9-11].. Array-CGH technique has offered in the last years new opportunities to discover cryptic chromosome imbalances ...

Some authors divide this syndrome into a typical or isolated form, consisting of symmetrical nonfunctioning muscular buds (müllerian duct remnants) and normal fallopian tubes, and an atypical,more generalized form consisting of aplasia of one or both buds and with or without fallopian tube dysplasia. Some duct remnants are cystic. Differentiation between the two forms is made on the basis of laparoscopic findings, although MRI can often suggests a diagnosis. The atypical form is associated with skeletal, renal, and ovarian abnormalities ...
Introduction: Spinal Koch involving posterior elements of the neural arch is one of the atypical presentations which are often missed. Case presentation: A 40-year-old female presented with radiculopathy and bilateral lower limb claudication for 5 months. Radiological investigations showed compressive lesion resembling flavum hypertrophy and a degenerative etiology was thus suspected. However, histopathology report pointed toward tuberculosis (TB) of the posterior elements (atypical form). Management with surgical decompression and anti-Koch treatment gave a successful outcome. Conclusion: TB affecting posterior elements of spine is a rare entity and needs a high degree of suspicion for accurate diagnosis. Newer radiological interventions such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging along with histopathological evidence will help to clinch the diagnosis of Kochs spine early before neurological problems or deformity sets in. Keeping a high index of suspicion will help to avoid missing the
They took some blood and will be testing her thyroid levels and for a genetic disorder called Rhetts Syndrome. From my own research on the Internet, I found that Rhetts Syndrome is caused by a genetic mutation error that typically affects only girls who begin to develop normally but then suddenly regress to the point of losing skills such as walking, talking and eating. Some of the typical characteristics of a girl with Rhetts are one with attractive features, uncontrolled seizures, and they do not use their hands. Jenelle does not fit the profile of the typical girl with Rhetts Syndrome, but they are finding as they test more kids like Jenelle that there is a type of atypical form of Rhetts that would fit Jenelles characteristics. It is something we have suspected for a while, but never actually tested. We will have those results in 4 weeks. We go back on Thursday to see Dr. Shields for a routine follow up and should have the thyroid results at that time. If the test for Rhetts is ...
A significant number of children with ALL are thought to inherit a rare PRDM9 gene variant responsible for the abnormal sex cells-a gene variant that puts their own children at risk of having ALL-predisposed offspring.. Our findings indicate ALL susceptibility to be partially hereditary. However, it is not classic heredity in the sense that the abnormal genetic variant does not need to be passed from parent to child for offspring to have the disease, explains Julie Hussin, a doctoral student in Genomics under the direction of Dr. Philip Awadalla, a genetics researcher.. Instead, the genetic defect in the egg or sperm from which the children developed is thought to predispose them to leukemia, continues Julie Hussin. However, only the children who inherit the genetic variant run the risk of transmitting ALL predispositions to their offspring. According to the study, more than three quarters of families with affected children have an atypical form of the PRDM9 gene, with half the patients ...

The spectrum of HIV-associated opportunistic diseases occurring in the oral cavity propelled dental health care providers to the forefront of patient care. Infection control issues soon became important in oral health care for patients infected with HIV, and for the first decade these two issues overshadowed the concerns about appropriate management of the dental needs of HIV-infected patients. Several concerns need to be considered in the management of dental care for patients infected with HIV. These include decreased salivary flow and increased sugar intake, prevention and management of routine inflammatory gingival and periodontal disease as well as the atypical forms of gingival and periodontal disease associated with HIV ...

Using mice bred to lack specific subunits of the PI3K pathway, the researchers discovered that mice that could not activate the protein kinase Akt had increased glucose production in the liver, impaired glucose tolerance, and increased levels of insulin in the blood, all contributors to type 2 diabetes. On the other hand, those mice with defects in the atypical forms of the enzyme protein kinase C (PKC) had decreased lipids in the blood and reduced levels of a protein called SREBP, which is critical for regulating fatty acid and cholesterol in the blood. (This particular form of the PKC enzyme is distinct from the form known as PKC-beta, which is activated by high blood glucose and is linked to many diabetic complications, including those of the eye and the blood vessels ...

So I got the phone call yesterday afternoon from my neurosurgeons office - insurance APPROVED my surgery!!!. While I maintained my composure (barely) while talking with the woman in the office and asking a few questions, as soon as I hung up the phone, I lost it. I know, I know - I cry about everything! But I was holding a tremendous amount of tension over the pending approval - so getting that call was monumental to me!! I knew that it had set in motion a whole lot of things needing to be done in a short amount of time. But lets back up a few steps…. If you dont already know, I was born with MRKH - 4 letters that would define much of my adult life. I was born without a uterus and would never be able to carry a child. I have MRKH Type 2 which means that I also have a pelvic kidney, a mild curvature in my spine, and apparently - I tend to wear out my joints and connective tissues in them much sooner than most people. As I get older, the spine and joint issues tend to come into my awareness ...

BACKGROUND: Parathyroid hormone increases bone strength primarily by stimulating bone formation, whereas antiresorptive drugs reduce bone resorption. We conducted a randomized, double-blind clinical study of parathyroid hormone and alendronate to test the hypothesis that the concurrent administration of the two agents would increase bone density more than the use of either one alone. METHODS: A total of 238 postmenopausal women (who were not using bisphosphonates) with low bone mineral density at the hip or spine (a T score of less than -2.5, or a T score of less than -2.0 with an additional risk factor for osteoporosis) were randomly assigned to daily treatment with parathyroid hormone (1-84) (100 microg; 119 women), alendronate (10 mg; 60 women), or both (59 women) and were followed for 12 months. Bone mineral density at the spine and hip was assessed by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry and quantitative computed tomography. Markers of bone turnover were measured in fasting blood samples.

It is important to be aware that spinal tuberculosis may resemble spinal malignancy. ...
a. Agenesis & hypoplasia: Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome is most common. All or part of the müllerian tract fails to form, or is extremely underdeveloped. For example, a cervix may be a tissue-thin membrane rather than a tough, fibrous donut several centimeters thick. Most women suffering from agenesis or extreme hypoplasia have severe fertility problems, simply by lacking sufficient tissue to support a growing pregnancy. A common diagnosis used to be infantile uterus, but it simply means a smaller-than-average uterus and does not refer to the MA described above. The old infantile uterus is typically capable of supporting a pregnancy very well, since a uterus easily grows during pregnancy. The infantile term has fallen by the wayside in recent years.. b. Unicornuate uterus (UU): When one müllerian duct is underdeveloped or fails to develop, a banana-shaped half-uterus is formed. It may or may not be accompanied by a rudimentary horn, and that other horn may or may not have an ...

Unicornuate uterus (UU): When one müllerian duct is underdeveloped or fails to develop, a banana-shaped half-uterus is formed. It may or may not be accompanied by a rudimentary horn, and that other horn may or may not have an ...
Erythrokeratodermia variabilis (EKV) is an autosomal dominant disease that causes skin lesions and thickening. In 2005, a novel mutation was identified in a small group of families with an atypical form of EKV. In addition to erythematous lesions and hyper-keratosis, affected individuals from these families have severe psychomotor retardation, peripheral neuropathy, sensorineural hearing loss and severe diarrhea. In a new study, a team of Canadian researchers report that the atypical form of EKV caused by this mutation is in fact a novel neurocu-taneous syndrome, which they have named MEDNIK (mental retardation, enteropathy, deafness, peripheral neuropathy, ichthyosis and keratodermia). The mutation found in MEDNIK patients creates a premature stop codon in the AP1S1 gene, which encodes a subunit of an adaptor protein complex involved in protein trafficking within cells. The researchers show that knocking down Ap1s1 expression in zebrafish resulted in a phenotype reminiscent of the human ...
Hemolytic uremic syndrome atypical 5 (AHUS5) [MIM:612925]: An atypical form of hemolytic uremic syndrome. It is a complex genetic disease characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, renal failure and absence of episodes of enterocolitis and diarrhea. In contrast to typical hemolytic uremic syndrome, atypical forms have a poorer prognosis, with higher death rates and frequent progression to end-stage renal disease. {ECO:0000269,PubMed:18796626, ECO:0000269,PubMed:20513133}.

Lutzner cells were discovered by Marvin A. Lutzner, Lucien-Marie Pautrier, and Albert Sézary. These cells are also referred to as Pautriers abscess, Sézarys cell, or Sézary-Lutzner cells. They are a form of T-lymphocytes that has been mutated This atypical form of T-lymphocytes contains T-cell receptors on the surface and is found in both the dermis and epidermis layers of the skin. Since Lutzner cells are a mutated form of T-lymphocytes, they develop in bone marrow and are transported to the thymus is order to mature. The production and maturation stages occur before the cell has developed a mutation. Lutzner cells can form cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, which is a form of skin cancer. Lymphocytes are white blood cells that form from a blood stem cell, hemocytoblast, in bone marrow and travel to other parts of the body, normally specific lymphoid tissues, to mature. After being produced, the stem cell differentiates into lymphoid stem cells. Then, T-lymphocytes further mature and differentiate ...
CK (creatine kinase) is an enzyme (protein) found in several tissues, including muscles and the heart. Depending on the tissue, different forms of CK are present: CK-MM is primarily present in skeletal muscles, CK-MB represents 30% of CK from the heart, while CK-BB comes from the brain and smooth muscle, such as the intestinal walls. Atypical forms of CK (macro CK1 and macro CK2) can also be present. CK electrophoresis is most useful when muscular or cardiac disease does not seem to be responsible for the increased level of total CK.
Disabled people- particularly those with developmental and psychiatric impairments, those who are poor, gender-deviant, and/or people of color, those who need atypical forms of assistance to survive-have faces sterilization, segregation, and institutionalization; denial of equitable education, health care and social services; violence and abuse; and the withholding of the rights of citizenship. Too many of these practices continue, and each of them has greatly limited, and often literally shortened, the future of disabled people. It is my loss, our loss, not to cake care of, embrace and desire all of us. We must begin to anticipate presents and to imagine futures that include all of us. We must explore disability in time. ...
To date the OIE/WAHO assumes that the human and animal health standards set out in the BSE chapter for classical BSE (C-Type) applies to all forms of BSE which include the H-type and L-type atypical forms. This assumption is scientifically not completely justified and accumulating evidence suggests that this may in fact not be the case. Molecular characterization and the spatial distribution pattern of histopathologic lesions and immunohistochemistry (IHC) signals are used to identify and characterize atypical BSE. Both the L-type and H-type atypical cases display significant differences in the conformation and spatial accumulation of the disease associated prion protein (PrPSc) in brains of afflicted cattle. Transmission studies in bovine transgenic and wild type mouse models support that the atypical BSE types might be unique strains because they have different incubation times and lesion profiles when compared to C-type BSE. When L-type BSE was inoculated into ovine transgenic mice and Syrian ...

Vaginoplasty is a procedure which involves the tightening of the loose muscles and tissues which are in the front or back of the vaginal walls, it is specifically done at the entry point to the vagina. Sometimes it is required to remove surfeit vaginal skin in order to decrease the diameter of the vagina. This procedure results in a smaller and tighter vaginal canal. The tightening of the vaginal walls can result in more satisfaction during intercourse due to higher friction. ...

  • The paternal SRY-bearing X chromosome was transmitted to two of his children, a 46 XX true hermaphrodite and a 46,XX male. (nih.gov)
  • The presence of SRY on an X chromosome associated with two sex phenotypes strongly suggests that the phenotypic variability was caused by differential inactivation of the SRY-bearing X chromosome, thereby influencing SRY expression. (nih.gov)
  • SRY is an intronless sex-determining gene on the Y chromosome. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, there are complications to this hypothesis, because WT1 also is responsible for expression of an antagonist of male development, DAX1, which stands for Dosage-sensitive sex reversal, Adrenal hypoplasia critical region, on chromosome X, gene 1. (wikipedia.org)

  • Turner syndrome , also called gonadal dysgenesis , relatively uncommon sex-chromosome disorder that causes aberrant sexual development in human females. (britannica.com)
  • Turner syndrome occurs when one sex chromosome is deleted, so that instead of the normal 46 chromosomes, of which two are sex chromosomes (XX in females and XY in males), the chromosomal complement is 45,X. In genetic terms, these patients are neither male nor female because the second, sex-determining chromosome is absent. (britannica.com)
  • For example, there are mixtures of chromosomes (mosaics), such as a 45,X and 46,XX chromosomal complement or a 45,X and 47,XXX chromosomal complement, and chromosomal translocations, in which a portion of one chromosome is transferred to another chromosome. (britannica.com)

  • Testing must be ordered in conjunction with conventional chromosome studies (CHRCB / Chromosome Analysis, Congenital Disorders, Blood). (mayocliniclabs.com)
  • The SRY (sex-determining region on the Y chromosome) gene is required for normal embryonic wolffian (male) genital development, although numerous other genes are involved in completing the process of normal male development. (mayocliniclabs.com)
  • Thus, a 46,XY individual with an SRY deletion or mutation will develop as a female, and a 46,XX individual with translocation of SRY to 1 X chromosome will develop as a male. (mayocliniclabs.com)
  • We recommend conventional chromosome studies (CHRCB / Chromosome Analysis, Congenital Disorders, Blood) to detect Y chromosome abnormalities and to rule out other chromosome abnormalities or translocations, and FISH studies to detect cryptic translocations involving the SRY region that are not demonstrated by conventional chromosome studies.

  • In 1905, Y chromosome was identified as a sex determining chromosome by Nettie Stevens. (boostuplife.com)
  • Later a protein called SRY (Sex determining Region Y/ Testis Determinig Region) protein located on Y chromosome (Yp 11.3) was discovered to be a DNA binding protein encoded by SRY gene. (boostuplife.com)
  • This Y chromosome that results from this crossing over is now lacking an SRY gene, and can no longer initiate testis development. (boostuplife.com)
  • The X chromosome that results from the crossover mentioned above now has an SRY gene, and therefore the ability to initiate testes development. (boostuplife.com)
