The total relative probability, expressed on a logarithmic scale, that a linkage relationship exists among selected loci. Lod is an acronym for "logarithmic odds."
A class of statistical methods applicable to a large set of probability distributions used to test for correlation, location, independence, etc. In most nonparametric statistical tests, the original scores or observations are replaced by another variable containing less information. An important class of nonparametric tests employs the ordinal properties of the data. Another class of tests uses information about whether an observation is above or below some fixed value such as the median, and a third class is based on the frequency of the occurrence of runs in the data.

Mutations in the organic cation/carnitine transporter OCTN2 in primary carnitine deficiency. (1/1003)

Primary carnitine deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder of fatty acid oxidation caused by defective carnitine transport. This disease presents early in life with hypoketotic hypoglycemia or later in life with skeletal myopathy or cardiomyopathy. The gene for this condition maps to 5q31.2-32 and OCTN2, an organic cation/carnitine transporter, also maps to the same chromosomal region. Here we test the causative role of OCTN2 in primary carnitine deficiency by searching for mutations in this gene in affected patients. Fibroblasts from patients with primary carnitine deficiency lacked mediated carnitine transport. Transfection of patient's fibroblasts with the OCTN2 cDNA partially restored carnitine transport. Sequencing of the OCTN2 gene revealed different mutations in two unrelated patients. The first patient was homozygous (and both parents heterozygous) for a single base pair substitution converting the codon for Arg-282 to a STOP codon (R282X). The second patient was a compound heterozygote for a paternal 1-bp insertion producing a STOP codon (Y401X) and a maternal 1-bp deletion that produced a frameshift creating a subsequent STOP codon (458X). These mutations decreased the levels of mature OCTN2 mRNA and resulted in nonfunctional transporters, confirming that defects in the organic cation/carnitine transporter OCTN2 are responsible for primary carnitine deficiency.  (+info)

Multipoint oligogenic analysis of age-at-onset data with applications to Alzheimer disease pedigrees. (2/1003)

It is usually difficult to localize genes that cause diseases with late ages at onset. These diseases frequently exhibit complex modes of inheritance, and only recent generations are available to be genotyped and phenotyped. In this situation, multipoint analysis using traditional exact linkage analysis methods, with many markers and full pedigree information, is a computationally intractable problem. Fortunately, Monte Carlo Markov chain sampling provides a tool to address this issue. By treating age at onset as a right-censored quantitative trait, we expand the methods used by Heath (1997) and illustrate them using an Alzheimer disease (AD) data set. This approach estimates the number, sizes, allele frequencies, and positions of quantitative trait loci (QTLs). In this simultaneous multipoint linkage and segregation analysis method, the QTLs are assumed to be diallelic and to interact additively. In the AD data set, we were able to localize correctly, quickly, and accurately two known genes, despite the existence of substantial genetic heterogeneity, thus demonstrating the great promise of these methods for the dissection of late-onset oligogenic diseases.  (+info)

Full results of the genome-wide scan which localises a locus controlling the intensity of infection by Schistosoma mansoni on chromosome 5q31-q33. (3/1003)

Three hundred million individuals are at risk of infection by schistosomes, and thousands die each year of severe hepatic disease. Previous studies have shown that the intensity of infection by Schistosoma mansoni in a Brazilian population is controlled by a major gene, denoted as SM1. We report here the full results of a genome-wide search that was performed on this population to localise SM1. Two hundred and forty-six microsatellites were used for the primary map, and only one region in 5q31-q33 provided significant evidence of linkage. SM1 was subsequently mapped to this region, which contains several genes encoding cytokines or cytokine receptors which are involved in protection against schistosomes. Three additional regions, 1p22.2, 7q36 and 21q22-22-qter, yielded promising, although not significant, lod-score values. These regions contain candidate genes encoding cytokines or molecules relevant to anti-schistosome immunity.  (+info)

Frequent loss of heterozygosity at the DNA mismatch-repair loci hMLH1 and hMSH3 in sporadic breast cancer. (4/1003)

To study the involvement of DNA mismatch-repair genes in sporadic breast cancer, matched normal and tumoral DNA samples of 22 patients were analysed for genetic instability and loss of heterozygosity (LOH) with 42 microsatellites at or linked to hMLH1 (3p21), hMSH2 (2p16), hMSH3 (5q11-q13), hMSH6 (2p16), hPMS1 (2q32) and hPMS2 (7p22) loci. Chromosomal regions 3p21 and 5q11-q13 were found hemizygously deleted in 46% and 23% of patients respectively. Half of the patients deleted at hMLH1 were also deleted at hMSH3. The shortest regions of overlapping (SRO) deletions were delimited by markers D3S1298 and D3S1266 at 3p21 and by D5S647 and D5S418 at 5q11-q13. Currently, the genes hMLH1 (3p21) and hMSH3 (5q11-q13) are the only known candidates located within these regions. The consequence of these allelic losses is still unclear because none of the breast cancers examined displayed microsatellite instability, a hallmark of mismatch-repair defect during replication error correction. We suggest that hMLH1 and hMSH3 could be involved in breast tumorigenesis through cellular functions other than replication error correction.  (+info)

New reciprocal translocation t(5;10)(q33;q22) associated with atypical chronic myeloid leukemia. (5/1003)

We report a new chromosomal reciprocal translocation t(5;10)(q33;q22) in a 49-year-old man with atypical chronic myeloid leukemia (a-CML) and history of occupational exposure to petroleum products including benzene and other hydrocarbons. The t(5;10) (q33;q22) was found in 94% and 84% of metaphases in peripheral blood and bone marrow cells, respectively. Cytogenetic analysis of single colonies derived from granulocyte-macrophage (CFU-GM), and erythroid (BFU-E) hematopoietic progenitors showed that 88% and 40% of CFU-GM and BFU-E, respectively, had the t(5;10)(q33;q22). In contrast, peripheral blood T-lymphocytes, and cutaneous fibroblasts had normal 46,XY karyotype. Molecular analysis of the t(5;10)(q33;q22) translocation breakpoint is currently underway in order to identify genes located in this region which might provide insights into the pathogenesis of atypical myeloproliferative disorders.  (+info)

Adverse effects of activated cytotoxic T lymphocytes on the clinical outcome of nodal anaplastic large cell lymphoma. (6/1003)

Systemic (nodal) anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a subgroup of T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas with a relatively favorable clinical outcome. Part of systemic ALCLs harbor a genetic aberration (usually the t(2;5)(p23;q35) translocation) containing the anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene at 2p23, which results in aberrant expression of the ALK protein. Recently, we have shown that the presence of high percentages of activated cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) in tumor biopsy specimens of Hodgkin's disease (HD) is associated with a poor prognosis. In the present study, we investigated the prognostic value of percentages of activated CTLs in combination with ALK expression in primary nodal ALCL. Primary nodal biopsies of 42 patients with ALCL were investigated for the percentage of activated CTLs (quantified using Q-PRODIT) and the expression of ALK by immunohistochemistry using monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) directed against T-cell antigen granzyme B (GrB) and ALK, respectively. These parameters were evaluated for their predictive value regarding progression-free and overall survival time. The presence of a high percentage of activated CTLs (ie, >/=15%) was found to be an unfavorable prognostic marker. In combination with a lack of ALK expression, it was possible to identify a group of patients with a very poor prognosis. In this group, 13 of 16 patients died within 2 years as a result of the disease. Of the remaining 26 patients, only three (all ALK negative) died (P <.0001). Furthermore, the percentage of activated CTLs combined with ALK status appeared to be of stronger prognostic value than the International Prognostic Index (IPI). We conclude that a high percentage of activated CTLs present in biopsy material of patients with primary nodal ALCL is a strong indicator for an unfavorable clinical outcome. The combination of ALK expression and percentage of activated CTLs appears to be more sensitive than the IPI in identifying a group of patients with a highly unfavorable clinical outcome who may be eligible for alternative (high dose) therapy schemes.  (+info)

Association and linkage analysis of candidate chromosomal regions in multiple sclerosis: indication of disease genes in 12q23 and 7ptr-15. (7/1003)

Four recent genome-wide screen studies in multiple sclerosis (MS) identified a number of candidate regions for susceptibility genes in addition to the HLA complex in 6p21. However, none of these regions provided formally significant evidence for genome-wide linkage. We have investigated such regions in 46 Swedish multiplex MS families, 28 singleton families, 190 sporadic MS patients and 148 normal controls by parametric and nonparametric linkage and association analysis. One microsatellite marker, in 12q23, provided evidence for association in addition to suggestive transmission distortion and slightly positive linkage. In addition, a marker in 7ptr-15 showed a significant transmission distortion as well as a highly significant score in affected pedigree member analysis, but not quite significant deviations in association analysis. One of three markers in 5p, a region implicated in all four previous studies, showed a weakly positive lod score, but no other evidence of importance. Markers in 2p23, 5q11-13, 6q25, 7q21-22, 11q21-23, 13q33-34, 16p13.2, 18p11.32-23, Xp21.3 provided little or no evidence of importance for MS. In summary, these data support the importance of genome-wide screens in the identification of new candidate loci in polygenic disorders.  (+info)

Cytogenetic analysis of sperm chromosomes and sperm nuclei in a male heterozygous for a reciprocal translocation t(5;7)(q21;q32) by in situ hybridisation. (8/1003)

We have studied the meiotic segregation of a reciprocal translocation t(5;7)(q21;q32) in a male carrier, using the human sperm-hamster oocyte fusion technique and the whole chromosome painting. A total of 296 sperm complements were analysed by dual chromosome painting. The frequencies of alternate, adjacent-1, adjacent-2 and 3:1 segregation were 49.7%, 32.4%, 16.2% and 1.7% respectively. Aneuploidy frequencies for chromosomes not involved in the translocation were determined by FISH on decondensed sperm heads using probes from chromosomes X, Y, 6, 18 and 21. A total of 20,118 spermatozoa was analysed, 10,201 by two-colour FISH (probes for chromosomes 6 and 21) and 9917 by three-colour FISH (probes for chromosomes X, Y, and 18). There was no evidence of an interchromosomal effect, since disomy frequencies were within the range of normal controls.  (+info)

Cri Du Chat Syndrome Essay, Research Paper Cri Du Chat Syndrome (Cry of the Cat) By Chase Kuntz The Cri du Chat syndrome is the result of the deletion of segment 5p15.2 in the short arm of chromosome number five. No one is quite sure on how this deletion occurs, or even why it occurs. This deletion leads to deformities and mental retardation in the child.
The symptoms of cri du chat syndrome vary from case to case. The characteristic high-pitched, shrill cry associated with cri du chat syndrome is present during the first few weeks of life. The cry, which resembles the mewing of a cat, becomes less pronounced as affected infants grow older.. Affected infants may also display low birth weight, growth deficiencies, diminished muscle tone (hypotonia), and microcephaly, a condition that indicates that head circumference is smaller than would be expected for an infants age and sex.. Distinctive facial features may include an abnormally round or plump (moon) face, a broad nasal bridge, widely spaced eyes (hypertelorism), crossed eyes (strabismus), downwardly slanting eyelid folds (palpebral fissures), vertical skin folds that may cover the eyes inner corners (epicanthal folds), low-set ears, and an abnormally small jaw (micrognathia). Improper alignment of the upper and lower teeth (malocclusion) may also occur.. Additional facial features include an ...

A rare chromosomal disorder that is apparent at birth, is characterized by a distinctive high, shrill, mewing, kitten-like cry during infancy.
The 5q- syndrome is the most distinct of the myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and patients with this disorder have a deletion of chromosome 5q [del(5q)] as the sole karyotypic abnormality. Several genes mapping to the commonly deleted region of the 5q- syndrome have been implicated in disease pathogenesis in recent years. Haploinsufficiency of the ribosomal gene RPS14 has been shown to cause the erythroid defect in the 5q- syndrome. Loss of the microRNA genes miR-145 and miR-146a has been associated with the thrombocytosis observed in 5q- syndrome patients. Haploinsufficiency of CSNK1A1 leads to hematopoietic stem cell expansion in mice and may play a role in the initial clonal expansion in patients with 5q- syndrome. Moreover, a subset of patients harbor mutation of the remaining CSNK1A1 allele. Mouse models of the 5q- syndrome, which recapitulate the key features of the human disease, indicate that a p53-dependent mechanism underlies the pathophysiology of this disorder. Importantly, activation of p53

Changes in RPS14 expression levels during lenalidomide treatment in Low- and Intermediate-1-risk myelodysplastic syndromes with chromosome 5q deletion.
Cri-du-chat syndrome is a genetic condition. Also called cats cry or 5P- (5P minus) syndrome, its a deletion on the short arm of chromosome 5. Its a rare condition, occurring in only about 1 in 20,000 to 1 in 50,000 newborns, according to the Genetics Home Reference. But its one of the more common syndromes caused by chromosomal deletion.. Cri-du-chat means cry of the cat in French. Infants with the syndrome produce a high-pitched cry that sounds like a cat. The larynx develops abnormally due to the chromosome deletion, which affects the sound of the childs cry. The syndrome is more noticeable as the child ages, but becomes difficult to diagnose past age 2.. Cri-du-chat also carries many disabilities and abnormalities. A small percentage of infants with cri-du-chat syndrome are born with serious organ defects (especially heart or kidney defects) or other life-threatening complications that can result in death. Most fatal complications occur before the childs first birthday.. Children ...

It is well documented that mothers of children with challenging behavior (CB) experience elevated levels of stress and that this persists over time, but less is known about the experience of mothers of children with rare genetic syndromes. This article describes 2 studies, 1 cross-sectional and 1 longitudinal, comparing well-being in mothers of children with Angelman, Cornelia de Lange and Cri du Chat syndrome who have either shown chronic CB ( n = 18) or low/no CB ( n = 26) in the preceding 7 years. The presence of chronic, long-term CB increased maternal stress but not depression or anxiety, and did not influence positive well-being. Stress relating specifically to their childs genetic syndrome reduced with age, highlighting the need for further exploration in this area. ...
In recent years we have gained great insight into the molecular pathogenesis of the 5q- syndrome, a distinct subtype of myelodysplasia. The demonstration of haploinsufficiency of the ribosomal gene RPS14 (mapping to the commonly deleted region) and the finding that this is the cause of the erythroid defect in the 5qsyndrome represent major advances. A mouse model of the human 5q- syndrome generated by large-scale deletion of the Cd74-Nid67 interval (containing RPS14) further supports a critical role for RPS14 haploinsufficiency. It is widely accepted that ribosomal deficiency results in p53 activation and defective erythropoiesis and the crossing of the 5q- mice with p53 deficient mice ameliorated the erythroid progenitor defect. Emerging data suggests that the p53 activation observed in the mouse model may also apply to the human 5q- syndrome.
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if SGI-110 can help to control MDS. The safety of this drug will also be studied.

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the interleukin 1 cytokine family. Protein structure modeling indicated that this cytokine may contain a 12-stranded beta-trefoil structure that is conserved between IL1A (IL-A alpha) and IL1B (IL-1 beta). This gene and eight other interleukin 1 family genes form a cytokine gene cluster on chromosome 2. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported.[8]. ... bersyukur lah selalu karena di lahirkan sempurna.

Hello, My daughter, Siobhan, has severe developmental delays. Shell be four in July, learned to walk unaided two months ago, and cannot speak. She can vocalize, but is unable to make consonants. She is able to approximate a few words and can use them correctly. After years of searching for the cause of her condition Siobhan has been diagnosed by Dr. Barbara Crandall, geneticist, at UCLA Medical Center. Dr. Crandall has demonstrated that in 40 to 60 percent of Siobhans blood cells there is a deletion at the tip of the P5 (P5.3) chromosome. The syndrome in which this particular deletion appears is named cri-du-chat because the infant will cry like a cat. I downloaded an .au file from a web site on which there is a mention of this syndrome and the cry is eerily like that of a cat. I first heard the sound in that file because Siobhan never had that distinctive cry. Dr. Crandall theorizes that perhaps Siobhan does not have severe effects because the deletion does not happen in all cells, but ...

AU - Audlin, S.. AU - Mendelsohn, N. J.. AU - Roggenbuck, J.. AU - Cutting, G. R.. PY - 2009/8/1. Y1 - 2009/8/1. N2 - Interpretation of the pathogenicity of sequence alterations in disease-associated genes is challenging. This is especially true for novel alterations that lack obvious functional consequences. We report here on a patient with Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS) found to carry a previously reported mutation, c.122C , T, which predicts p.A41V, and a novel synonymous mutation, c.3612A , C. Pedigree analysis showed that the c.122C , T mutation segregated with normal phenotypes in multiple family members while the c.3612A , C was de novo in the patient. Analysis of TCOF1 RNA in lymphocytes showed a transcript missing exon 22. These results show that TCS in the patient is due to haploinsufficiency of TCOF1 ...

Talore very quickly picked up on the sound of me picking up the laser pointer (the metal case usually clicks against my desk), the sound it makes when I turn it on, and the sound it makes when I turn it off. Her reactions are, respectively: perk up and look at me, crouch down and start looking for the dot, and look at me and settle down. Of course by the time I turn it off shes usually stopped really chasing it anyway.. In related news, the $10 worth of watch batteries are getting noticeably dimmer 1 week after installation. Ill probably be buying a new laser pointer soon - one that takes reasonably sized batteries. My other option is to go by radio shack and get a battery holder for 4 probably AA batteries and wire it in, but considering my current laser pointer is part of a nice (or at least decent) pen Ill probably just leave it as is.. ...

  • However since females have two X chromosomes, hemophilia is often canceled out, or counteracted, in the creation of the second X chromosome. (
  • While the Lyon hypothesis dictates that the X inactivation process is random, skewing of this process to the point of non-random X chromosome inactivation is a known mechanism associated with the development of X linked genetic diseases in females. (
  • Because females inherit an X chromosome from their fathers, female offspring of affected fathers are never affected. (

  • Having extra copies of multiple genes on the X chromosome affects many aspects of development, including sexual development before birth and at puberty. (
  • Sometimes a small segment of chromosome is amplified, which results in the presence of multiple copies of that section of the chromosome. (
  • People normally have two copies of this chromosome. (
  • Each gene is composed of 2 alternative copies known as alleles, one originating from the maternally derived chromosome and the other originating from the paternally derived chromosome of each chromosome pair. (
  • These individuals have a variable phenotype depending on which chromosome is involved, the size of the duplication and whether there is loss of material from the same or another chromosome. (

  • Tabulation of allele sharing in affected sib pairs with D20S197 and D12S349 suggests that affected sibling pairs may inherit susceptibility genes simultaneously from chromosome 20 and chromosome 12. (
  • Evidence from this and other studies suggests at least two diabetes-susceptibility genes on chromosome 20. (
  • These findings provide little additional evidence for a susceptibility locus for panic disorder either within the CREM gene or in a nearby region of chromosome 10p11 in our sample. (
  • In mammals, the Y chromosome contains a gene, SRY , which triggers embryonic development as a male. (
  • It is expressed in a variety of human tissues and is thought to play a role in actin regulation of ectoplasmic specialization, establishment of sperm polarity and sperm adhesion. (
  • This comes about because of the fertilization of the female egg (with its 23 chromosomes, one of which is an X) with a sperm from the male (with its 23 chromosomes, one of which is either an X or a Y). (
  • The Y chromosomes of humans and other mammals also contain other genes needed for normal sperm production. (
  • This reduction in the number of chromosomes is important so that the original number of chromosomes is restored following fertilization of the egg by the sperm. (
  • So CCDS's gene number prediction represents a lower bound on the total number of human protein-coding genes. (
  • Since these genes lie on the X in marsupials and eutherians, and also on the homologous region of chicken chromosome 4, this represents a loss from the monotreme X rather than an additional evolutionary stratum of the human X. (
