Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.

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 ...
Cri Du Chat syndrome results from the loss or deletion of a significant portion of the genetic material from the short arm of one of the pair of number five chromosomes. It is a relatively rare genetic condition with an estimated incidence of between around 1:25000 to 1:50000 births. There are more children being diagnosed now that genetic testing is carried out more frequently and is more accurate. The incidence appears to be the same in most countries, ethnic groups and regions. To date, there is no single environmental factor implicated in the incidence of this syndrome. The most distinctive characteristic, and the one for which the syndrome was originally named in 1963 by geneticist Jerome Lejeune, is the distinctive high-pitched, monotone, cat-like cry. Cri du Chat is French for cats cry. The cry is thought to be the result of structural abnormality and low muscle tone. Although the voice will naturally lower as the child grows, the characteristic high pitch often persists into ...

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

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.

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.

  • 2. identify examples of inversion in homologous chromosomes. (
  • This is different from the pair of homologous chromosomes, which represents the chromosomes inherited from the father and the mother. (
  • Mendel's first principle, segregation , is the direct result of the separation of homologous chromosomes during anaphase I of meiosis. (
  • Mendel's second principle, independent assortment , occurs because each pair of homologous chromosomes line up at the metaphase plate in meiosis I independently of all other pairs of homologous chromosomes. (
  • Prophase I begins with pairing of both homologues, resulting in a tetrad containing 4 homologous chromosomes. (
  • Through a "homology searching" mechanism that is still unknown, the ends of homologous chromosomes migrate together on the nuclear membrane, making it possible for synapsis to begin at the termini. (
  • Zygotene is characterized by the synapsis of homologous chromosomes. (
  • Remember, each chromosome has two identical chromatids, so at synapsis there are 4 homologous chromatids. (
  • Pairing can only take place at the PAR, because only those sequences are homologous, between the X and Y chromosomes. (
  • A genetic locus is the place on homologous chromosome pairs where genes are located. (
  • 1. Prophase I--homologous chromosomes (each is composed of 2 chromatids) come together as pairs, a complex of 4 chromosomes known as a tetrad. (
  • The dad places one set of the homologous pairs (ex: that longer set) behind his back, with a chromosome in each hand. (
  • Repeat this procedure for the other homologous pair (ex: shorter set) and for the sex chromosomes. (
  • Now the 'mom' places one set of the homologous pairs behind her back and the male chooses. (
  • Arrange the chromosomes into homologous pairs and figure out what phenotypes (appearance or trait) the offspring has. (
  • Several patches of sequences are found in the 5'-flanking region of the human IL-4 gene which are homologous to sequence in the 5'-flanking regions of the IL-2, IL-3, IL-5, and granulocyte-macrophage (GM)-CSF genes. (
  • what are homologous chromosomes? (
  • 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. (
  • Without it, homologous chromosomes do not pair up and then segregate properly. (
  • Further, homologous recombination allows for alleles to be shuffled between the corresponding chromosomes, providing for an incredible number of different combinations that underlies much of the diversity we see today. (
  • Of the 46 chromosomes in each human cell except sperm and egg cells (which have only half that number), 44 are non-sex chromosomes or "autosomes. (
  • The X and Y chromosomes are thought to have evolved from a pair of identical chromosomes, [10] [11] termed autosomes , when an ancestral animal developed an allelic variation, a so-called "sex locus" - simply possessing this allele caused the organism to be male. (
  • Both males and females have 22 pairs of chromosomes, called the autosomes, that are numbered one to twenty-two in order of decreasing size. (
  • Human cells have 22 pairs of autosomes. (
  • Chromosomes come in pairs, and a normal human cell contains 46 chromosomes, 22 pairs of autosomes and two sex chromosomes. (
  • Humans have two copies of chromosome 1, as they do with all of the autosomes , which are the non- sex chromosomes . (
  • Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, 46 in all: 44 autosomes and two sex chromosomes . (
  • The point the two sister chromatids join together is called centromere, and the ends of chromosomes are called telomere. (
  • 2. Nondisjunction is the failure of chromosome pairs or sister chromatids to separate properly during cell division. (
  • The familiar X shape actually refers to 2 identical chromosomes referred to as sister chromatids. (
  • 99.9%) of these sites are small differences, either single nucleotide polymorphisms or brief insertions or deletions ( indels ) in the genetic sequence, but structural variations account for a greater number of base-pairs than the SNPs and indels. (
  • Association of single nucleotide polymorphisms on chromosome 9p21.3 with platelet reactivity: a potential mechanism for increased vascular disease. (
  • The region the CGEMS study identified on chromosome 8 is marked by a number of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), including rs6983267. (
  • Background and Purpose- Recently independent studies reported an association between coronary heart disease and single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) located at chromosome 9p21, near CDKN2A and CDKN2B genes. (
  • Using HapMap data, he proposed that a significant proportion of common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) found in humans were probably created alleles. (
  • The human βIII spectrin gene ( SPTBN2 ) maps to chromosome 11q13 and the mouse gene ( Spnb3 ) maps to a syntenic region close to the centromere on chromosome 19. (
  • the centrioles move to the poles, chromosomes move to equator, centrioles form mitotic spindles by shooting microtubrials and connecting to centromere. (
  • During the anaphase, the chromosomes divide at the centromere and start moving towards opposite poles. (
  • Each chromosome has a constriction point called the centromere , which divides the chromosome into two sections, or "arms. (
  • The location of the centromere on each chromosome gives the chromosome its characteristic shape, and can be used to help describe the location of specific genes. (
  • [4] There is also a telomere region within the human chromosome two, as well as a non-functional second centromere. (
  • A chromosome (one of the microscopically visible carriers of the genetic material DNA) with its centromere (the "waist" of the chromosome) located quite near one end of the chromosome. (
  • A chromosome with a centromere near one end. (
  • A chromosome having the centromere close to one end. (
  • During mitosis, DNA is packaged into chromosomes. (
  • All chromosomes normally appear as an amorphous blob under the microscope and only take on a well-defined shape during mitosis . (
  • It is entirely coincidental that the Y chromosome, during mitosis , has two very short branches which can look merged under the microscope and appear as the descender of a Y-shape. (
  • As in mitosis, chromosomes are aligned between the centrosomes in metaphase I. One kinetochore forms per chromosome pair, rather than one per chromatid. (
  • 3)If a fly has a diploid number of 12, how many chromosomes would there be in each cell at the end of telophase of mitosis? (
  • Over the next several decades, scientists peering deeper into the cell discovered mitosis and meiosis, the two types of cell division, and chromosomes , the long strands of DNA and protein in cell nuclei. (
