Thoracoscopic sympathectomy for palmar hyperhidrosis and Raynaud's phenomenon of the upper limb and excessive facial blushing: a five year experience. (1/6)

Primary hyperhidrosis of the palms, face, and axillae has a strong negative impact on social and professional life. A retrospective analysis of 40 laparoscopic transaxillary thoracic sympathectomies performed in a district general hospital over a five year period was undertaken in order to determine the effectiveness of this procedure. A postal questionnaire was sent to all patients to assess the benefit from the operation; postoperative pain and time off work were collated. Immediate failure was noted in three patients, of whom two later underwent successful reoperation. Recurrence was noted in three patients (8%). Though immediate complications were minimal, the major long term postoperative morbidity was compensatory hyperhidrosis on the back, chest, and thigh (77%) along with gustatory sweating over the face (22%). Thoracoscopic sympathectomy is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive surgical treatment for hyperhidrosis, Raynaud's phenomenon of the upper limb, and excessive facial blushing; however, the chance of long term compensatory hyperhidrosis is high.  (+info)

Endoscopic sympathectomy in the treatment of facial blushing. (2/6)

INTRODUCTION: Bilateral endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (BETS) has been shown to be an effective, permanent, and safe treatment for severe upper limb hyperhydrosis. More recently, the possibility of using BETS to treat facial blushing, a redness of the face bought on by emotional or social stress, has been raised. This followed incidental reports from patients of relief from their blushing following this procedure for hyperhydrosis. At King's College Hospital, 120 patients underwent BETS over a 3-year period for both upper limb hyperhydrosis and facial blushing. In this study we report our results in relation to facial blushing. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The outcome was evaluated by questionnaire and symptoms assessed using the visual analogue scale. Questions on postoperative complications and overall quality of life were included. RESULTS: A total of 80 patients responded to our questionnaire of whom 59 (74%) experienced facial blushing. In 12 patients, this was their only symptom. Severity of facial blushing was reduced from a mean score of 78 before operation to 26 after BETS (P < 0.001); 29% reported complete resolution of their facial blushing. There was no mortality or conversion to open surgery. Quality of life was reported to be much better in 63% of facial blushers following the procedure. CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates both a statistically significant reduction in severity of facial blushing as well as a clear improvement in quality of life following a safe procedure with few complication rates. Facial blushing can, therefore, be considered as an indication for BETS on its own merit when not associated with hyperhydrosis.  (+info)

Chlorpropamide-alcohol flushing: a dominantly inherited trait associated with diabetes. (5/6)

A simple test was devised to identify people susceptible to chlorpropamide-alcohol flushing (CPAF). Subjects were given a placebo tablet, followed by sherry 12 and 36 hours later. They then received a chlorpropamide tablet and sherry again after 12 and 36 hours. This single-dose challenge test was given to non-insulin-dependent diabetics, insulin-dependent diabetics, and normal subjects. CPAF was common in the non-insulin-dependent diabetics but rare in the other groups. When the test was used in identical twins and families of affected subjects CPAF appeared to be a dominantly inherited trait. We conclude that facial flushing after alcohol in people taking chlorpropamide is related to non-insulin-dependent diabetes, especially when there is a strong family history of diabetes, but not to insulin-dependent diabetes. It is a dominantly inherited trait.  (+info)

Chlorpropamide-alcohol flushing: a definition of its relation to non-insulin-dependent diabetes. (6/6)

The single-challenge test for chlorpropamide-alcohol flushing (CPAF) was used to study two groups of patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes and a family history of the disease who were distinguished only by their age at diagnosis (under and over 30). Their relatives were also studied. The proportions of patients showing CPAF in both groups were similar, and the family histories suggested dominant inheritance. When offspring of diabetics in whom the disease was diagnosed early were studied CPAF seemed to precede the appearance of diabetes. We conclude that the patients in both groups had the same, distinct syndrome, which is characterised by diabetes diagnosed at any age that is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait and associated with CPAF. This syndrome, which constitutes about one-fifth of all cases of non-insulin-dependent diabetes, may be detected with a single-challenge CPAF test before the onset of glucose intolerance. CPAF therefore acts as a genetic marker for the syndrome.  (+info)

Genome-wide association (GWA) has been used as a tool for dissecting the genetic architecture of quantitatively inherited traits. We demonstrate here that GWA can also be highly useful for detecting many major genes governing categorically defined phenotype variants that exist for qualitatively inherited traits in a germplasm collection. Genome-wide association mapping was applied to categorical phenotypic data available for 10 descriptive traits in a collection of ∼13,000 soybean [ (L.) Merr.] accessions that had been genotyped with a 50,000 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) chip. A GWA on a panel of accessions of this magnitude can offer substantial statistical power and mapping resolution, and we found that GWA mapping resulted in the identification of strong SNP signals for 24 classical genes as well as several heretofore unknown genes controlling the phenotypic variants in those traits. Because some of these genes had been cloned, we were able to show that the narrow GWA mapping SNP ...
Every person (except for an identical twin) has a unique set of inherited traits that makes him or her identifiable as an individual. This is true of all organisms that reproduce sexually. However, have you ever tried to distinguish one bean plant from another bean plant? Or one corn plant from another corn plant? Plants grown as crops have been selected to minimize trait variation because it is easier for farmers to manage a more uniform crop. In this activity, students germinate two types of corn seeds: popcorn and Indian corn. As a result of their observations, students will see that seedlings of the popcorn variety (which have been bred for uniformity) are very similar, while more variation can be observed among the Indian corn seedlings.. Understanding heredity in plants-especially crop plants-can be complicated. Many crop plants are propagated asexually, making it easy to grow a uniform crop. Crops like potatoes, garlic, and raspberries can reproduce simply by being split into pieces from ...

Risk-taking is a character or personality trait that exists in everyone across a continuum, like extroversion or neuroticism. People are more or less risk-taking and open to new experience. Theres a biological basis for many personality traits, and risk taking does seem to be heritable. Risk-taking or sensation-seeking tendencies may co-exist with impulsivity, but not always. Non-impulsive risk-takers take the time to plan their risks---to take reasonable precautions or safety measures and to weigh out the odds (or in the case of rock-climbing, make sure the rope is anchored soundly) to maximize the chance of success. If youve grown up in a disadvantaged neighborhood where the school drinking fountains are laced with lead, youre more likely to be an impulsive risk-taker (or one of my patients). Thus, environmental factors can influence the way an inherited trait is expressed ...
But because malignant growths can also begin with the healthy process of cell division and genetic mutations, they will never be entirely eliminated. In addition, cancer rates rise with age. In fact, aging may be one of the strongest risk factors, so as life expectancies go up, so does the number of cancer cases. About 40 percent of Americans born today will be diagnosed with cancer at some time during their lives, according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The more remarkable statistic, though, is the increase in survival rates.

In the mid-1800s, a mild Augustinian friar named Gregor Mendel crossbred pea plants and pioneered the beginnings of understanding inherited traits. Genetics has come a long way since then.. Neither Mendel nor Charles Darwin knew anything about the incredible molecule of life, DNA. Today, papers are published daily in science journals describing new discoveries of DNAs role as a regulator and repairman.. Scientists have known for decades that DNA can be damaged by too much sun (UV radiation) or exposure to harmful chemicals and carcinogens. Upon examination of damaged DNA, the researchers discovered that whole families of submicroscopic repair enzymes (tiny machines) were constantly restoring the damaged DNA.1 It has been estimated that as many as one million individual molecular lesions (trauma) of DNA occur per cell per day that need repair.2 Since we are designed with trillions of cells, you can imagine the sheer number of tiny repair enzymes hard at work in each person!. Now a U.S.C. ...
Many women may be surprised to learn that the risk of developing osteoporosis can be an inherited trait. This question just came up when my wife visited her sister. My wife is 66 and her sister is 89, but they hadnt had the opportunity to see each other for over 25 years. My wifes mom developed osteoporosis and lost 6 inches in height in her later years. The loss of height was due to her vertebra compressing down and numerous broken ribs that would not heal. Her loss of height caused her esophagus to fold back and forth, making it impossible for her to swallow food or liquids. She spent the last two years of her life taking her nourishment through a feeding tube that had been surgically inserted through her side and into her stomach. At 89-years of age, she fell and fractured her hip. It was surgically repaired but while recuperating in the hospital, her heart gave out and she passed away.. While visiting her sister, my wife found out that her sister too had lost 6 inches in height due to ...

Splitting Up Cells 12.1: Cell division results in genetically identical daughter cells Cellular Organization of the Genetic Material A cells genetic information is called its genome. A prokaryotic genome has a single DNA molecule, eukaryotic genomes have multiple DNA molecules. DNA molecules are packaged into structures called chromosomes. Each eukaryotic chromosome consists of one very long, linear DNA molecule with many proteins. Genes are the units of information that specify an organisms inherited traits. Chromatin is the entire complex of DNA and proteins- the building material of chromosomes. Somatic cells refer to all cells except the reproductive cells. Gametes refer to reproductive cells. Each organism has 46 chromosomes - 23 from each parent. Distribution of Chromosomes During Cell Division When a cell is not dividing, each chromosome is in the form of a long, thin chromatin fiber; after DNA duplication, the chromosomes
It was not exactly news to breeders that speed is an inherited trait: whippets were developed in the late 1800s specifically for racing. But knowing that one of her dogs was sired by a carrier of the gene, said Jen Jensen, a whippet owner in Fair Oaks, Calif., makes its championships seem less earned. Ms. Jensens suggestion that a DNA test be required for all dogs and that the fastest ones without the mutation be judged and raced separately, however, has not gone over well ...

Forging evolutionary links to underlying mechanisms. Many important principles underlying how protein molecular machines work lie beyond the pale of direct experimental observation. CHAIN analysis is a statistical solution to this problem that follows Mendels example: Just as Mendel inferred principles underlying genetic mechanisms from observed patterns of inherited traits, CHAIN analysis seeks to infer principles underlying molecular mechanisms from observed patterns in protein sequences-the cells own language for encoding those mechanisms. Sequence patterns that have been conserved for a billion years or more reflect strong selective pressures maintaining mechanistic similarities. Divergent patterns that are conserved in descendent proteins maintaining a particular divergent function likewise reflect mechanistic differences. Thus, non-random patterns of sequence conservation and divergence correspond to conservation and divergence of underlying mechanisms, which we define broadly to include ...
Our brains are what make us fat, not just our eating habits. A variation in a single gene is associated with an increased risk for obesity, because it influences our appetite.. People who have inherited the gene variant NRXN3 have a 10-15% increased risk of being obese compared with people who do not have the variant. This is the third obesity-associated gene to be identified.. Researcher Robert Kaplan says, Weve known for a long time that obesity is an inherited trait, but specific genes linked to it have been difficult to find. A lot of factors (such as the types and quantity of foods you eat, how much you exercise, and how you metabolize foods) affect your body shape and size. So we are looking for genes that may have a small role to play in a complex situation. Alas, our brains are also the only thing we can use to SOLVE the problem, by going on Anne Striebers diet which is FREE on our website.

Periorbital dark circles (also known as dark circles) are dark blemishes around the eyes. There are many causes of this symptom, including heredity , pigmentation and bruising. In most cases, the dark circles under the eyes are blood vessels that can be seen through the skin. The skin around the eyelids (periorbital skin) is the thinnest skin in the body (around 0.5 mm thick compared with 2mm in other areas). Like varicose veins, dark circles under the eyes are usually an inherited trait. When blood passes through the large veins close to the surface of the skin, it can produce a bluish tint. The more transparent the skin-also an inherited trait-the darker the circles appear. In people with a deep-set bone structure, shadowing can also contribute to the dark color under the eyes. ...

BACKGROUND: Genetic association studies are conducted to discover genetic loci that contribute to an inherited trait, identify the variants behind these associations and ascertain their functional role in determining the phenotype. To date, functional annotations of the genetic variants have rarely played more than an indirect role in assessing evidence for association. Here, we demonstrate how these data can be systematically integrated into an association studys analysis plan. RESULTS: We developed a Bayesian statistical model for the prior probability of phenotype-genotype association that incorporates data from past association studies and publicly available functional annotation data regarding the susceptibility variants under study. The model takes the form of a binary regression of association status on a set of annotation variables whose coefficients were estimated through an analysis of associated SNPs in the GWAS Catalog (GC). The functional predictors examined included measures that ...

The study, published online in Leadership Quarterly, is the first to identify a specific DNA sequence associated with the tendency for individuals to occupy a leadership position. Using a large twin sample, the international research team, which included academics from Harvard, NYU, and the University of California, estimate that a quarter of the observed variation in leadership behaviour between individuals can be explained by genes passed down from their parents.. We have identified a genotype, called rs4950, which appears to be associated with the passing of leadership ability down through generations, said lead author Dr Jan-Emmanuel De Neve (UCL School of Public Policy). The conventional wisdom - that leadership is a skill - remains largely true, but we show it is also, in part, a genetic trait. To find the genotype, Dr De Neve and his colleagues analysed data from two large-scale samples in the United States, available through the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add ...

The genetic material of bacteria and plasmids is DNA. Bacterial viruses (bacteriophages or phages) have DNA or RNA as genetic material. The two essential functions of genetic material are replication and expression. Genetic material must replicate accurately so that progeny inherit all of the specific genetic determinants (the genotype) of the parental organism. Expression of specific genetic material under a particular set of growth conditions determines the observable characteristics (phenotype) of the organism. Bacteria have few structural or developmental features that can be observed easily, but they have a vast array of biochemical capabilities and patterns of susceptibility to antimicrobial agents or bacteriophages. These latter characteristics are often selected as the inherited traits to be analyzed in studies of bacterial genetics.

Well, they are not a health problem and the experts call this skin disorder in male orange cats lentigo. They become noticeable when cats are under one year of age. The spots vary in size and shape. The books that I have say there is no medical treatment but then again there is no need to apply medical treatment because this is not a health concern.. Lentigo does not cause discomfort in any way. It is NOT a form of cancer but is a cosmetic condition. It is believed to be an inherited trait. It is possibly sex-linked and associated with the gene for orange hair (reference: page 112 Consultations in Feline Internal Medicine by John R August). The gene for orange is, in fact, sex-linked which means the gene is carried on one of the sex chromosomes.. The symbol for the gene is O. It eliminates all eumelanistic pigment (black, blue, chocolate etc.) from the hair fibres. ...
Every biological organism, whether human, animal, plant, bacterium or virus, is not only a morphological, but also an energetic being, and in this form an information receiver, information carrier, information processor and information transmitter. Every communicative exchange between individuals, every health disorder, every inherited trait - they all have an informative character. Information can interfere with each other and lead to unexpected effects. Infectious diseases, for example, are triggered by information from microorganisms that damage humans. Even after the destruction of microorganisms, this information can further burden or even damage the organism. The same applies to the informational effect of experiences, which can lead to mental disorders or psychological characteristics, which may even manifest themselves as psychosomatic complaints. Psychology speaks here of so-called indirect psychotraumas. Informational disorders can be inherited epigenetically in subsequent generations ...

Mitochondrial genomes encode only a fraction of the genetic information required for their biogenesis and function. Consequently, a large number of genetic and biochemical features present in plant mitochondria arose in the context of coevolution and coordinated gene functions between the mitochondrial and nuclear genomes (Mackenzie and McIntosh, 1999). Cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) is a widespread phenomenon observed in ,150 flowering plant species (Laser and Lersten, 1972). CMS is a maternally inherited trait and is often associated with unusual open reading frames (ORFs) found in mitochondrial genomes, and in many instances, male fertility can be restored specifically by nuclear-encoded, fertility restorer (Rf) genes (Schnable and Wise, 1998). Therefore, CMS/Rf systems are ideal models for studying the genetic interaction and cooperative function of mitochondrial and nuclear genomes in plants.. CMS/Rf systems have long been exploited for hybrid breeding to enhance the productivity of ...
In 1859, Charles Darwins (1859) work On the Origin of Species brought the new theories of evolution by natural selection to a wide audience, leading to the overwhelming acceptance of evolution among scientists. Douglas Futuyma (2005), in his book Evolution, defines the term (evolution) as the change in the inherited traits of a population of organisms through successive generations. After a population splits into smaller groups, these groups evolve independently and may eventually diversify into new species. Within the understanding of natural selection and evolution, the human being (as an animal) is driven by the base instinct to propagate its genome. This means that not only is the survival of the individual important, but also the survival of the genome itself.. In The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins (1976), the contention is made that the genes that get passed on are the ones whose consequences serve their own implicit interests (to continue being replicated), but not only those of the ...
Evolutionary baggage is the part of the genome of a population that was advantageous in past individuals but is disadvantageous under the pressures exerted by natural selection today. Genes that may have been advantageous in the past may be critically unfit for individuals in todays environment. Natural selection is not a perfect process; if an organism is fit enough to survive a particular environment and reproduce, its genes are passed on to the next generation. Some of these genes may increase an organisms fitness while some may even be slightly disadvantageous. This seeming paradox is the origin of evolutionary baggage, which is the collectively inherited traits that evolved in a different environment from the present. In the case of humans, the result is a Paleolithic genome, which is not adapted to todays environment and is contributing to diseases of civilization, including atherosclerosis and obesity. Other hypotheses link evolutionary baggage to genetic diseases. Since all ...
Hip dysplasia is an inherited trait involving multiple gene pairs - it is not congenital (meaning an animal is not born with it). The condition develops over time from instability in the hip joint which results from an improper fit of the femoral head (ball-like structure) into the acetabalum (hip socket). This instability, called hip joint laxity, results in abnormal weight bearing within the hip joint. From this, secondary changes and remodeling occur in an effort to stabilize the joint or avoid bone-on-bone contact. When cartilage disintegrates from abnormal wear, the femoral head and acetabalum rub together with every step causing pain and eventual osteoarthritis.
Landsteiner subsequently discovered three of the four genetically determined blood groups or types, O, A and B. A couple of years later, Alfred von Decastello and Adriano Sturli, Landsteiners colleagues in Vienna, identified a fourth blood group, AB. While about 30 blood types have been discovered, the original four essentially cover everyone.. In 1910, at the Heidelberg Institute for Experimental Cancer Research in Germany, Ludwig Hirszfeld and Emil von Dungern demonstrated that blood type is an inherited trait.. In the speech he made when he accepted the Nobel Prize in 1930 for his work, Landsteiner described the mystery blood presented, and how he and his fellow researchers unraveled its secrets.. In 1922, Landsteiner moved to the Rockefeller Institute of Medical Research in New York, where he discovered an extremely powerful blood antigen he called the Rh factor.. Today, hospital personnel make sure they know a mothers blood type in case she needs a transfusion. She will also be tested ...
