The presence of methemoglobin in the blood, resulting in cyanosis. A small amount of methemoglobin is present in the blood normally, but injury or toxic agents convert a larger proportion of hemoglobin into methemoglobin, which does not function reversibly as an oxygen carrier. Methemoglobinemia may be due to a defect in the enzyme NADH methemoglobin reductase (an autosomal recessive trait) or to an abnormality in hemoglobin M (an autosomal dominant trait).

Assaying potential carcinogens with Drosophila. (1/2914)

Drosophila offers many advantages for the detection of mutagenic activity of carcinogenic agents. It provides the quickest assay system for detecting mutations in animals today. Its generation time is short, and Drosophila is cheap and easy to breed in large numbers. The simple genetic testing methods give unequivocal answers about the whole spectrum of relevant genetic damage. A comparison of the detection capacity of assays sampling different kinds of genetic damage revealed that various substances are highly effective in inducing mutations but do not produce chromosome breakage effects at all, or only at much higher concentrations than those required for mutation induction. Of the different assay systems available, the classical sex-linked recessive lethal test deserves priority, in view of its superior capacity to detect mutagens. Of practical importance is also its high sensitivity, because a large number of loci in one fifth of the genome is tested for newly induced forward mutations, including small deletions. The recent findings that Drosophila is capable of carrying out the same metabolic activation reactions as the mammalian liver makes the organism eminently suitable for verifying results obtained in prescreening with fast microbial assay systems. An additional advantage in this respect is the capacity of Drosophila for detecting short-lived activation products, because intracellular metabolic activation appears to occur within the spermatids and spermatocytes.  (+info)

Nonbehavioral selection for pawns, mutants of Paramecium aurelia with decreased excitability. (2/2914)

The reversal response in Paramecium aurelia is mediated by calcium which carries the inward current during excitation. Electrophysiological studies indicate that strontium and barium can also carry the inward current. Exposure to high concentrations of barium rapidly paralyzes and later kills wild-type paramecia. Following mutagenesis with nitrosoguanidine, seven mutants which continued to swim in the ;high-barium' solution were selected. All of the mutants show decreased reversal behavior, with phenotypes ranging from extremely non-reversing (;extreme' pawns) to nearly wild-type reversal behavior (;partial' pawns). The mutations fall into three complementation groups, identical to the pwA, pwB, and pwC genes of Kunget al. (1975). All of the pwA and pwB mutants withstand longer exposure to barium, the pwB mutants surviving longer than the pwA mutants. Among mutants of each gene, survival is correlated with loss of reversal behavior. Double mutants (A-B, A-C, B-C), identified in the exautogamous progeny of crosses between ;partial' mutants, exhibited a more extreme non-reversing phenotype than either of their single-mutant (;partial' pawn) parents.---Inability to reverse could be expected from an alteration in the calcium-activated reversal mechanism or in excitation. A normal calcium-activated structure was demonstrated in all pawns by chlorpromazine treatment. In a separate report (Schein, Bennett and Katz 1976) the results of electrophysiological investigations directly demonstrate decreased excitability in all of the mutants, a decrease due to an altered calcium activation. The studies of the genetics, the survival in barium and the electro-physiology of the pawns demonstrate that the pwA and pwB genes have different effects on calcium activation.  (+info)

The muscle chloride channel ClC-1 has a double-barreled appearance that is differentially affected in dominant and recessive myotonia. (3/2914)

Single-channel recordings of the currents mediated by the muscle Cl- channel, ClC-1, expressed in Xenopus oocytes, provide the first direct evidence that this channel has two equidistant open conductance levels like the Torpedo ClC-0 prototype. As for the case of ClC-0, the probabilities and dwell times of the closed and conducting states are consistent with the presence of two independently gated pathways with approximately 1.2 pS conductance enabled in parallel via a common gate. However, the voltage dependence of the common gate is different and the kinetics are much faster than for ClC-0. Estimates of single-channel parameters from the analysis of macroscopic current fluctuations agree with those from single-channel recordings. Fluctuation analysis was used to characterize changes in the apparent double-gate behavior of the ClC-1 mutations I290M and I556N causing, respectively, a dominant and a recessive form of myotonia. We find that both mutations reduce about equally the open probability of single protopores and that mutation I290M yields a stronger reduction of the common gate open probability than mutation I556N. Our results suggest that the mammalian ClC-homologues have the same structure and mechanism proposed for the Torpedo channel ClC-0. Differential effects on the two gates that appear to modulate the activation of ClC-1 channels may be important determinants for the different patterns of inheritance of dominant and recessive ClC-1 mutations.  (+info)

A wide variety of mutations in the parkin gene are responsible for autosomal recessive parkinsonism in Europe. French Parkinson's Disease Genetics Study Group and the European Consortium on Genetic Susceptibility in Parkinson's Disease. (4/2914)

Autosomal recessive juvenile parkinsonism (AR-JP, PARK2; OMIM 602544), one of the monogenic forms of Parkinson's disease (PD), was initially described in Japan. It is characterized by early onset (before age 40), marked response to levodopa treatment and levodopa-induced dyskinesias. The gene responsible for AR-JP was recently identified and designated parkin. We have analysed the 12 coding exons of the parkin gene in 35 mostly European families with early onset autosomal recessive parkinsonism. In one family, a homozygous deletion of exon 4 could be demonstrated. By direct sequencing of the exons in the index patients of the remaining 34 families, eight previously undescribed point mutations (homozygous or heterozygous) were detected in eight families that included 20 patients. The mutations segregated with the disease in the families and were not detected on 110-166 control chromosomes. Four mutations caused truncation of the parkin protein. Three were frameshifts (202-203delAG, 255delA and 321-322insGT) and one a nonsense mutation (Trp453Stop). The other four were missense mutations (Lys161Asn, Arg256Cys, Arg275Trp and Thr415Asn) that probably affect amino acids that are important for the function of the parkin protein, since they result in the same phenotype as truncating mutations or homozygous exon deletions. Mean age at onset was 38 +/- 12 years, but onset up to age 58 was observed. Mutations in the parkin gene are therefore not invariably associated with early onset parkinsonism. In many patients, the phenotype is indistinguishable from that of idiopathic PD. This study has shown that a wide variety of different mutations in the parkin gene are a common cause of autosomal recessive parkinsonism in Europe and that different types of point mutations seem to be more frequently responsible for the disease phenotype than are deletions.  (+info)

Characterization of a new form of inherited hypercholesterolemia: familial recessive hypercholesterolemia. (5/2914)

We previously described a Sardinian family in which the probands had a severe form of hypercholesterolemia, suggestive of familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). However, low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor activity in fibroblasts from these subjects and LDL binding ability were normal. The characteristics of the pedigree were consistent with an autosomal recessive trait. Sitosterolemia and pseudohomozygous hyperlipidemia were ruled out. A second Sardinian kindred with similar characteristics was identified. Probands showed severe hypercholesterolemia, whereas their parents and grandparents were normolipidemic. FH, familial defective apoprotein (apo) B, sitosterolemia, and cholesteryl ester storage disease were excluded by in vitro studies. We addressed the metabolic basis of this inherited disorder by studying the in vivo metabolism of LDL in 3 probands from these 2 families. 125I-LDL turnover studies disclosed a marked reduction in the fractional catabolic rate (0.19+/-0.01 versus 0.36+/-0.03 pools per day, respectively; P<0.001) and a significant increase in the production rate [20.7+/-4.4 versus 14. 0+/-2.4 mg. kg-1. d-1, respectively; P<0.01] of LDL apoB in the probands compared with normolipidemic controls. We then studied the in vivo biodistribution and tissue uptake of 99mtechnetium-labeled LDL in the probands and compared them with those in normal controls and 1 FH homozygote. The probands showed a significant reduction in hepatic LDL uptake, similar to that observed in the FH homozygote. A reduced uptake of LDL by the kidney and spleen was also observed in all patients. Our findings suggest that this recessive form of hypercholesterolemia is due to a marked reduction of in vivo LDL catabolism. This appears to be caused by a selective reduction in hepatic LDL uptake. We propose that in this new lipid disorder, a recessive defect causes a selective impairment of LDL receptor function in the liver.  (+info)

Homozygous deletion in KVLQT1 associated with Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome. (6/2914)

BACKGROUND: Long-QT (LQT) syndrome is a cardiac disorder that causes syncope, seizures, and sudden death from ventricular arrhythmias, specifically torsade de pointes. Both autosomal dominant LQT (Romano-Ward syndrome) and autosomal recessive LQT (Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome, JLNS) have been reported. Heterozygous mutations in 3 potassium channel genes, KVLQT1, KCNE1 (minK), and HERG, and the cardiac sodium channel gene SCN5A cause autosomal dominant LQT. Autosomal recessive LQT, which is associated with deafness, has been found to occur with homozygous mutations in KVLQT1 and KCNE1 in JLNS families in which QTc prolongation was inherited as a dominant trait. METHODS AND RESULTS: An Amish family with clinical evidence of JLNS was analyzed for mutations by use of single-strand conformation polymorphism and DNA sequencing analyses for mutations in all known LQT genes. A novel homozygous 2-bp deletion in the S2 transmembrane segment of KVLQT1 was identified in affected members of this Amish family in which both QTc prolongation and deafness were inherited as recessive traits. This deletion represents a new JLNS-associated mutation in KVLQT1 and has deleterious effects on the KVLQT1 potassium channel, causing a frameshift and the truncation of the KVLQT1 protein. In contrast to previous reports in which LQT was inherited as a clear dominant trait, 2 parents in the JLNS family described here have normal QTc intervals (0.43 and 0.44 seconds, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: A novel homozygous KVLQT1 mutation causes JLNS in an Amish family with deafness that is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait.  (+info)

High-resolution physical and genetic mapping of the critical region for Meckel syndrome and Mulibrey Nanism on chromosome 17q22-q23. (7/2914)

Previously, we assigned the genes for two autosomal recessive disorders, Meckel syndrome (MKS; MIM 249000) and Mulibrey Nanism [MUL (muscle-liver-brain-eye Nanism); MIM 253250] that are enriched in the Finnish population, to overlapping genomic regions on chromosome 17q. Now, we report the construction of a bacterial clone contig over the critical region for both disorders. Several novel CA-repeat markers were isolated from these clones, which allowed refined mapping of the MKS and MUL loci using haplotype and linkage disequilibrium analysis. The localization of the MKS locus was narrowed to <1 cM between markers D17S1290 and 132-CA, within an approximately 800-kb region. The MUL locus was refined into an approximately 1400-kb interval between markers D17S1290 and 52-CA. The whole MKS region falls within the MUL region. In the common critical region, the conserved haplotypes were different in MKS and MUL patients. A trancript map was constructed by assigning expressed sequence tags (ESTs) and genes, derived from the human gene map, to the bacterial clone contig. Altogether, four genes and a total of 20 ESTs were precisely localized. These data provide the molecular tools for the final identification of the MKS and the MUL genes.  (+info)

An arrested late endosome-lysosome intermediate aggregate observed in a Chinese hamster ovary cell mutant isolated by novel three-step screening. (8/2914)

Chinese hamster ovary cell mutants defective in the post-uptake degradation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in lysosomes were selected from mutagenized cells by novel three-step screening. First, in the presence of LDL, clones sensitive to an inhibitor of the rate-limiting enzyme of the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway, 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase, were isolated. Second, from the selected clones, those lacking in the degradation of a constituent of a fluorescent LDL were qualitatively screened by microscopy. Third, the clones were further screened by previously established quantitative analytical flow cytometry that detects the early-phase disintegration of LDL by lysosomal acid hydrolases. One of the isolated mutant clones, LEX1 (Lysosome-Endosome X 1), was a recessive mutant, and exhibited a specific disorder in the late endocytic pathway. LEX1 cells showed an unusual perinuclear aggregate of vesicles, heterogeneously positive for lysosomal glycoprotein-B/cathepsin D and rab7, yet negative for the cation-independent mannose 6-phosphate receptor. The aggregate was formed around the microtubule organizing center, and was disrupted by nocodazole treatment. Internalized octadecyl rhodamine B-labeled LDL (R18-LDL) was accumulated in the perinuclear rab7-positive vesicles. In a Percoll density gradient, neither internalized R18-LDL nor internalized horseradish peroxidase was efficiently chased into heavy lysosomal fractions positive for beta-hexosaminidase. LEX1 cells showed differences in the activity and subcellular distribution of lysosomal enzymes. These characteristics of LEX1 cells are consistent with the ideas that the perinuclear vesicle aggregate is an arrested intermediate of direct fusion or divergence between lysosomes and rab7-positive, cation-independent mannose 6-phosphate receptor-negative late endosomes, and that equilibrium between the lysosomes and the late endosomes is shifted towards the late endosomes in LEX1 cells. Such fusion or divergence between the late endosomes and the lysosomes would determine an appropriate equilibrium between them, and might thereby play an important role for proper lysosomal digestive functions. LEX1 mutant cells would be helpful for the dissection of the as yet unrevealed details of the late endocytic membrane dynamics and for the identification of factors involved in the process arrested by the mutation.  (+info)

Purpose: : To identify the molecular defect responsible for autosomal recessive cone-rod dystrophy segregating in a large multiplex and consanguineous family of Christian-Arab ancestry. Methods: : This pedigree was made of six nuclear families gathering ten affected members and six healthy relatives. All family members underwent general and ophthalmologic examinations. Among affected patients, 7/10 displayed typical signs of the so-called cone-rod dystrophy, 1/10 was affected with a typical Stargardt disease. In 2/10 affected patients the exact diagnosis could not be definitely carried with regard to their young age. Each family members blood was collected in Afula, Israel,and analyzed in France.A linkage analysis was performed in this pedigree using polymorphic markers flanking each of the three hitherto known arCRD loci: CORD3, CORD8 and CORD9, respectively. Subsequently, all 50 exons of the ABCA4 gene at the CORD3 locus were screened for mutations by direct sequencing. Results: : Linkage ...
Objective Autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing loss (ARNSHL) is a genetically heterogeneous sensorineural disorder. Alpha-tectorin, which is encoded by the TECTA gene, is a non-collagenous component of the tectorial membrane in the inner ear defect of which leads to moderate to severe hearing loss (HL). Methods 25 unrelated Iranian multiplex ARNSHL families, negative for GJB2 mutations, were recruited in this study. Clinical inspections including audiometric and otologic examinations ruled out syndromic forms. Genetic linkage analysis was performed using six short tandem repeat markers closely linked to DFNB21. Haplotype and LOD score analysis were used to confirm possible linkage. All coding exons of TECTA were subject to DNA sequencing in the linked family. Results A novel homozygous variant (c.734G , A) was found in exon 5 of the TECTA gene in one family leading to a nonsense mutation (p.W245×). It co-segregated with HL in the family. This variant was not detected in 50 controls. All ...

The protocol of the study adhered to the provisions of the Declaration of Helsinki. After informed consent was obtained, blood samples were taken and molecular analysis on the ABCA4 gene was performed as described by Maugeri et al. 14 The charts of patients with ABCA4 mutations who originally had received diagnoses of isolated or autosomal recessive CRD were reviewed. All patients originated from the University Medical Centre Nijmegen (Nijmegen, The Netherlands) and the University of Heidelberg (Heidelberg, Germany). In this study the diagnosis of CRD was based on the following criteria: initial symptoms of blurred central vision without a history of night blindness, impairment of color vision, and fundoscopic evidence of maculopathy without or with mild peripheral retinopathy. 3 4 5 7 8 In patients with recordable ERGs a cone-rod pattern of degeneration had to be present (i.e., the photopic b-wave impairment had to be greater than or equal to the scotopic b-wave amplitude impairment).

This report describes the development of obesity syndromes in mice caused by two autosomal recessive mutations, fat (fat), located on chromosome 8, and tubby (tub), located on chromosome 7. Both mutations cause slowly developing but ultimately severe obesity conditions. Although hyperinsulinemia, hyperactivity of the beta cell of the islets of Langerhans, and beta-cell degranulation are consistent features, these obesity syndromes do not progress to severe diabetes. The many different single-gene mutations in the mouse that produce obesity-diabetes syndromes of varying degrees of severity make the mutant mouse a powerful tool for analyzing the number and nature of the primary defects than can cause obesity states.

Strip loins and eye of rounds were obtained from heifers genotyped with variations of the myostatin gene; 19 homozygous dominant (Angus), 20 heterozygous dominant (Angus x Piedmontese), and 20 homozygous recessive (Piedmontese). Steaks were aged for 14 days, cooked fresh (never frozen), and nutrient steaks were frozen three days postmortem. Meat from homozygous recessive heifers was equal in tenderness to homozygous dominant and heterozygous dominant heifers. Fat content of meat from homozygous recessive heifers decreased while moisture and protein increased compared to homozygous dominant and heterozygous dominant. Calorie content decreased with increasing copies of the recessive gene. Thus, meat from the homozygous recessive cattle was leaner, yet equal in tenderness, to the meat from homozygous dominant cattle.

One advantage, I will say, that goes along with breeding for a dominant phenotype is there is little to no inbreeding required to get the gene to be fairly consistent. In contrast, the easiest way to get a recessive gene to be consistently produced is very heavy inbreeding. For example, if there is a single dog that appears with a recessively inherited color that a breeder is interested in, and they are the only one of their kind, inbreeding is the only way to guarantee the reappearance of the gene. Lets say a female puppy is born who is an unusual color. As an experiment, shes bred to a male and all of the puppies dont look like her. This means the trait is recessive, and all of the puppies are guaranteed to be carriers. Breeding two of them together would lead to a litter that would likely contain 25% homozygous recessive puppies. If two of those recessive phenotype puppies happen to be opposite genders, then breeding them together would produce an entire litter of recessives! Or, if only a ...

FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is a component of the acellular membranes of the inner ear. Disruption of the orthologous mouse gene shows that it plays a role in auditory and vestibular functions. It is involved in fibrillar network organization, the anchoring of otoconial membranes and cupulae to the neuroepithelia, and likely in sound stimulation resistance. Mutations in this gene cause autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness, type 18B. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2014 ...

Together these account for the majority of hereditary causes of end-stage renal disease in children and young adults.

One is also almost certain to be surprised by the results: the genetics of Schlumbergera flower color are complicated and not fully understood. You can cross a salmon with a salmon and wind up with 200 white seedlings, or cross a pink with a yellow and get purples. Spontaneous mutations also sometimes happen, though since spontaneous mutations tend to be recessive, it can take years to get them to show up: you have to get two copies of a recessive gene in a plant before you can see what it does, and Schlumbergera self-incompatibility means that you cant just cross a plant with itself, or a close relative, to get the two recessive genes together. In fact, Schlumbergera breeding in general sounds like a frustrating business: anytime you get a trait you like, no matter how you got it (induced mutation by irradiation, hybridization with another species, good old-fashioned random crossings followed by selection of the most interesting ones), you have to cross it with something that doesnt have that ...

Breeding. All procedures were approved by the University of Virginia Animal Research Committee. Female animals were placed in the home cage of a male animal at 5 P.M. and removed the following morning at 9 A.M. The tish phenotype is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern (Lee et al., 1997), but this phenotype cannot be recognized easily by visual inspection of the brain until approximately embryonic day 17 (E17). Consequently, experiments in which animals were killed before E18 involved the pairing of (1) two homozygous tish animals to ensure all homozygous (tish/tish) affected offspring or (2) a tish animal and a wild-type (+/+) animal to ensure all heterozygous (tish/+) unaffected offspring. Homozygous breeders were identified by either magnetic resonance imaging of the brain to verify the tish phenotype (Lee et al., 1997) or by histological verification of the tish phenotype in both parents of both of the breeders. In experiments in which animals were killed at later stages of ...

Autosomal recessive disorders are more likely to be seen when closely related animals are bred, such as in the case of purebred dogs and cats. This occurs due to similarities in the genetic makeup of closely related animals. Additionally, autosomal recessive traits are hard to eradicate from the breeding pool. Many carriers show no outward signs of disease, making them difficult to detect. When bred with another carrier, the appearance of genetic disorders in offspring may appear random without an understanding of the factors that result in the expression of a recessive genetic disorder.. One example of a recessive genetic disorder in dogs is progressive retinal atrophy (PRA). A dog who is affected with PRA may have parents who did not develop PRA, but instead served as carriers of the disease.

Causes. We each inherit two sets of genes, one from our mother the other from our father. These sets of genes lie in pairs and they determine the many things which make us individuals; such as hair or eye colour. There are two ways a condition can be passed through genes to children (two classifications of inheritance). These are called dominant inheritance traits and recessive inheritance traits. What is the difference between dominant and recessive traits: It is important to remember when discussing the inheritance traits that genes lie in sets of pairs, one set from each parent. A dominant trait is inherited from only one of our parents. With this type of inheritance only one copy of the faulty gene is needed. When it lies in its pair with the gene from our other parent it is the dominant one and switches on the trait. It is dominant over the other gene inherited from the other parent and the child will have the condition. With recessive traits two faulty copies of the gene are needed ...
MPS VI is an autosomal recessive disease this means that both parents must carry the same affected gene and each pass this same affected gene to their child.. People probably carry from 5 to 10 genes with mutations in each of their cells. Problems happen when the particular gene is dominant or when a mutation is present in both copies of a recessive gene pair. Genes are the unique set of instructions inside our bodies that make each of us an individual. They are the blueprint for our growth and development, as well as controlling how our bodies function. Genes are carried on structures called chromosomes and it is usual to have 23 pairs. A child will inherit half of the chromosomes from the mother and the other half from the father resulting in 23 pairs. 22 of these pairs look the same in both males and females. Pair 23 are the sex chromosomes, and this is the pair that differ between females and males. The X chromosome is inherited from the mother and the Y chromosome is inherited from the ...

Lets have a Genetics 101: if there is a gay gene (note that Im not sure too), then itd probably be a recessive trait. Now, what is a recessive trait? In human DNA, there are 2 copies of a single gene, each known as an allele, that is, simplistically speaking, responsible for a particular phenotype (layman: trait or disease). If a trait is recessive, that means both copies of the allele has to be the same before that trait is displayed. On the other hand, if the trait is dominant, that means by having 1 copy of that gene, the trait will be displayed.. If this gay gene is a recessive trait, that means a person may actually have a copy of the gay gene but still not display any gay tendencies. Now, if each of the parents of a child have a copy of the gay gene, then they will not display gay tendencies. However, this means that there is 25% chance that the child would have both copies of the gay gene and hence display gay tendencies. Of course, this child may still grow up and procreate if ...
To make the procedure less computationally demanding one may restricting consideration to a smaller subset of models: those represented in the figure by the dotted lines joining the Mendelian recessive model, at (0,0,1), through the null effect model, at (K,K,K), to the Mendelian dominant model at (0,1,1). It can be seen that these lines pass close to most points within the allowable volume.. If only these models indicated are used, then f0 and f2 both become functions of f1 and transmission model is completely defined by the choice of f1. ...

The most important goal of managing genetic disease is to avoid producing affected individuals. The secondary goal is to reduce the frequency of carriers of defective genes in the population. At the same time, recommendations should allow perpetuation of breeding lines, in order to preserve the genetic diversity of the population. Historically, genetic counseling has ranged from recommendations to not repeat a mating and to outbreed, to recommendations for elimination of all relatives of affected animals from the breeding pool. Neither of these two extremes serves the best long-term interest of specific breeds. Outbreeding may prevent the production of animals affected with rare recessive diseases, but it will propagate and further disperse the detrimental recessive genes ...

Cancer cells differ from their normal cellular counterparts in many important characteristics, including growth factor independence, resistance to apoptotic signals, loss of differentiation, and decreased drug sensitivity. Not surprisingly, genetic alterations occur in most, if not all cancer cells, and are thought to lie at the heart of these phenotypic alterations. The genetic changes found in cancer cells are typically of two types: dominant, thought to occur in proto-oncogenes; and recessive, thought to occur in tumor suppressor genes. The dominant type of alteration typically results in a gain of function, and the recessive type of alteration typically results in loss of function. Furthermore, it has been argued that an underlying genomic instability is present in cancer cells and is required for the generation of the multiple mutations that are thought to underlie cancer. In support of this hypothesis, molecular analysis of individual tumors often identifies multiple genetic changes, ...
The disease is caused by a mutation in the CAPN1 gene. The disease is described as an autosomal recessive condition. This means that a dog must inherit two copies of an abnormal gene (one from its mother and one from its father) before its health is affected. A dog that inherits only one copy of the abnormal gene (from its mother or its father) will have no signs of the disease, but will be a carrier and may pass the gene on to any offspring. ...

Adult heights follow a Gaussian, a.k.a. normal, distribution [1]. The usual explanation is that many factors go into determining ones height, and the net effect of many separate causes is approximately normal because of the central limit theorem.. If thats the case, why arent more phenomena normally distributed? Someone asked me this morning specifically about phenotypes with many genetic inputs.. The central limit theorem says that the sum of many independent, additive effects is approximately normally distributed [2]. Genes are more digital than analog, and do not produce independent, additive effects. For example, the effects of dominant and recessive genes act more like max and min than addition. Genes do not appear independently-if you have some genes, youre more likely to have certain other genes-nor do they act independently-some genes determine how other genes are expressed.. Height is influenced by environmental effects as well as genetic effects, such as nutrition, and these ...

Autosomal recessive cutis laxa is a genetically heterogeneous condition. Its molecular basis is largely unknown. Recently, a combined disorder of N- and O-linked glycosylation was described in children with congenital cutis laxa in association with severe central nervous system involvement, brain migration defects, seizures and hearing loss. We report on seven additional patients with similar clinical features in combination with congenital disorder of glycosylation type IIx. On the basis of phenotype in 10 patients, we define an autosomal recessive cutis laxa syndrome. The patients have a complex phenotype of neonatal cutis laxa, transient feeding intolerance, late closure of the fontanel, characteristic facial features including down-slanting palpebral fissures, short nose and small mouth, and developmental delay. There is a variable degree of the central nervous system involvement and variable systemic presentation. The biochemical analysis using transferrin isoelectric focusing gives false ...

Autosomal Recessive Primary Microcephaly (MCPH) is a rare disorder of neurogenic mitosis characterized by reduced head circumference at birth with variable degree of mental retardation. In MCPH patients, brain size reduced to almost one-third of its original volume due to reduced number of generated cerebral cortical neurons during embryonic neurogensis. So far, seven genetic loci (MCPH1-7) for this condition have been mapped with seven corresponding genes (MCPH1, WDR62, CDK5RAP2, CEP152, ASPM, CENPJ, and STIL) identified from different world populations. Contribution of ASPM and WDR62 gene mutations in MCPH World wide is more than 50%. By and large, primary microcephaly patients are phenotypically indistinguishable, however, recent studies in patients with mutations in MCPH1, WDR62 and ASPM genes showed a broader clinical and/or cellular phenotype. It has been proposed that mutations in MCPH genes can cause the disease phenotype by disturbing: 1) orientation of mitotic spindles, 2) chromosome

Background: Mutations in GJB2 are the most common molecular defects responsible for autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing impairment (NSHI). The mutation spectra of this gene vary among different ethnic groups. Methods: In order to understand the spectrum and frequency of GJB2 mutations in the Chinese population, the coding region of the GJB2 gene from 2063 unrelated patients with NSHI was PCR amplified and sequenced. Results: A total of 23 pathogenic mutations were identified. Among them, five (p.W3X, c.99delT, c.155_c.158delTCTG, c.512_c.513insAACG, and p.Y152X) are novel. Three hundred and seven patients carry two confirmed pathogenic mutations, including 178 homozygotes and 129 compound heterozygotes. One hundred twenty five patients carry only one mutant allele. Thus, GJB2 mutations account for 17.9% of the mutant alleles in 2063 NSHI patients. Overall, 92.6% (684/739) of the pathogenic mutations are frame-shift truncation or nonsense mutations. The four prevalent mutations; c.235delC, ...

Autosomal recessive cutis laxa type I (ARCL type I) is characterized by generalized cutis laxa with pulmonary emphysema and/or vascular complications. Rarely, mutations can be identified in FBLN4 or FBLN5. Recently, LTBP4 mutations have been implicated in a similar phenotype. Studying FBLN4, FBLN5, and LTBP4 in 12 families with ARCL type I, we found bi-allelic FBLN5 mutations in two probands, whereas nine probands harbored biallelic mutations in LTBP4. FBLN5 and LTBP4 mutations cause a very similar phenotype associated with severe pulmonary emphysema, in the absence of vascular tortuosity or aneurysms. Gastrointestinal and genitourinary tract involvement seems to be more severe in patients with LTBP4 mutations. Functional studies showed that most premature termination mutations in LTBP4 result in severely reduced mRNA and protein levels. This correlated with increased transforming growth factor-beta (TGFβ) activity. However, one mutation, c.4127dupC, escaped nonsense-mediated decay. The ...
Hearing loss is a common sensory and genetically heterogeneous disorder. Approximately 1:1000 children is born deaf or develops severe to profound hearing loss in early childhood due to genetic defects. About 70% of these cases are non-syndromic and, in most cases, follow an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. Autosomal recessive non-syndromic hearing loss (ARNSHL), also known as DFNB, accounts for up to 80% of non-syndromic hereditary hearing loss. To date, more than 100 gene loci have been implicated in DFNB. DFNB7, also known as DFNB11, is a form of profound, congenital, neurosensory, non-syndromal deafness.. ...
A Homozygous c.2536G-to-A Mutation in CRB1 Gene Manifesting Autosomal Recessive Retinitis Pigmentosa in a Large Consanguineous Kashmiri Family
Results The results of exclusion analyses suggested that family PKRP173 was linked to chromosome 2q harbouring mer tyrosine kinase protooncogene (MERTK), a gene previously associated with autosomal recessive RP. Additional STR markers refined the critical interval and placed it in a 13.4 cM (17 Mb) region flanked by D2S293 proximally and D2S347 distally. Significant logarithm of odds (LOD) scores of 3.2, 3.25 and 3.18 at θ=0 were obtained with markers D2S1896, D2S2269 and D2S160. Sequencing of the coding exons of MERTK identified a mutation, c.718G→T in exon 4, which results in a premature termination of p.E240X that segregates with the disease phenotype in the family. ...

In humans, inheritance of X-linked recessive traits follows a unique pattern made up of three points. -The first is that affected fathers cannot pass x-linked recessive traits to their sons because fathers give Y chromosomes to their sons. This means that males affected by an x-linked recessive disorder inherited the responsible X chromosome from their mothers. Second, x-linked recessive traits are more commonly expressed in males than females.[2] This is due to the fact that males possess only a single X chromosome, and therefore require only one mutated X in order to be affected. Women possess two X chromosomes, and thus must receive two of the mutated recessive X chromosomes (one from each parent). A popular example showing this pattern of inheritance is that of the descendants of Queen Victoria and the blood disease hemophilia.[3] -The last pattern seen is that x-linked recessive traits tend to skip generations, meaning an affected grandfather will not have an affected son, but could have an ...
Autosomal Recessive Non-syndromic Hearing Loss (ARNSHL)، in up to 50 percent of the cases، is caused by mutations in GJB2 (GJ: Gap Junction) gene، encoding connexin 26. However 10 to 42 percent of patients with recessive mutations are carriers of only one mutant GJB2 allele. Mutations in GJB4 gene encoding Cx30. 3 can also lead to hearing loss. Mixing of different connexins in heteromeric and heterotypic GJ assemblies is possible. The aim of this study is to answer whether variations GJB4 gene can be the second mutant allele causing the disease in Digenic mode of inheritance in the GJB2 heterozygous cases studied.. ...

Nonsyndromic autosomal recessive deafness accounts for 80% of hereditary deafness. To date, 52 loci responsible for autosomal recessive deafness have been mapped and 24 genes identified. Here, we report a large inbred Brazilian pedigree with 26 subjects affected by prelingual deafness. Given the extensive consanguinity found in this pedigree, the most probable pattern of inheritance is autosomal recessive. However, our linkage and mutational analysis revealed, instead of an expected homozygous mutation in a single gene, two different mutant alleles and a possible third undetected mutant allele in the MYO15A gene (DFNB3 locus), as well as evidence for other causes for deafness in the same pedigree. Among the 26 affected subjects, 15 were homozygous for the novel c.10573delA mutation in the MYO15A gene, 5 were compound heterozygous for the mutation c.10573delA and the novel deletion c.9957_9960delTGAC and one inherited only a single c.10573delA mutant allele, while the other one could not be ...

Genomic microarrays have been used as the first-tier cytogenetic diagnostic test for patients with developmental delay/intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorders and/or multiple congenital anomalies. The use of SNP arrays has revealed regions of homozygosity in the genome which can lead to identification of uniparental disomy and parental consanguinity in addition to copy number variations. Consanguinity is associated with an increased risk of birth defects and autosomal recessive disorders. However, the frequency of parental consanguinity in children with developmental disabilities is unknown, and consanguineous couples may not be identified during doctors visit or genetic counseling without microarray. We studied 607 proband pediatric patients referred for developmental disorders using a 4 × 180 K array containing both CGH and SNP probes. Using 720, 360, 180, and 90 Mb as the expected sizes of homozygosity for an estimated coefficient of inbreeding (F) 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, parental
When the Zika virus enters neural stem cells, a protein called Musashi-1 (MSI1) latches on to the viruss RNA genome, somehow promoting viral replication. Blocking the cells ability to produce MSI1 significantly inhibits Zikas ability to reproduce, according to an in vitro study published today in Science.. The interaction between the virus and the human protein appears to make the neural stem cells more vulnerable to cell death. Moreover, by binding to the Zika genome, MSI1 was less likely to bind its natural targets within the neural stem cells to properly direct brain development, as evidenced by differences in the cells gene expression.. The results provide clues as to how Zika causes microcephaly in fetuses whose mothers were infected while pregnant. Indeed, the team also found that a rare type of inherited microcephaly called autosomal recessive primary microcephaly is associated with mutations in MSI1.. Weve shown for the first time this interaction between Zika and MSI1-with MSI1 ...
CDK5RAP2 (CDK5 regulatory subunit-associated protein 2) potentially regulates CDK5 activity by interacting with CDK5R1. CDK5 is a brain specific cyclin-dependent kinase important to mammalian brain development. Studies implicate CDK5RAP2 involvement in centrosome directed production of microtubules and mitotic spindle formation during neuronal cell division. Mutations in CDK5RAP2 have been linked to the developmental disorder autosomal recessive primary microcephaly.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Model involving gene inactivation in the generation of autosomal recessive mutants in mammalian cells in culture. AU - Simon, A. E.. AU - Taylor, M. W.. AU - Bradley, W. E C. AU - Thompson, L. H.. PY - 1982. Y1 - 1982. N2 - We present evidence for a two-step model for expression of the recessive phenotype at the diploid adenine phosphoribosyl transferase (aprt) locus in Chinese hamster ovary cells. This model proposes a high-frequency event leading to allelic inactivation and a low-frequency event leading to a structural alteration of the APRT protein. Either event can occur first, resulting in two types of heterozygous cells. The proposed model is based on analysis of Chinese hamster ovary presumptive aprt heterozygotes and APRT- mutants, derived by two different laboratories. The major class of heterozygotes (class 1) had approximately 50% parental APRT activity, 50% immunologically precipitable APRT protein, and only wild-type enzyme as based on two-dimensional gel ...
A recessive allele is an allele that will not determine the phenotype unless the genotype is homozygous with that allele.[1] Examples of recessive alleles include the allele for green in the pea Pisum sativum (the subject of Gregor Mendels heredity experiments). In humans, a variety of inherited diseases are recessive, such as Cystic fibrosis and Tay-Sachs. ...
What is a myth is the idea that blond hair will disappear simply because its a recessive gene (as cited in the rumor). This means that in order for you to have blond hair, the gene must be present in both your fathers family and your mothers family. By contrast, if dark hair is a carried by a dominant gene, you can have dark hair even if dark hair is present in only one of your parents families. Some people think that this means recessive genes will gradually disappear. This is incorrect, as shown by Hardy and Weinberg. In the absence of other factors, recessive genes will remain in the population, in the same proportions, indefinitely ...
Osteopetrosis refers to a group of rare, inherited skeletal disorders characterized by increased bone density and abnormal bone growth.[11886][11888] Symptoms and severity can vary greatly, ranging from neonatal onset with life-threatening complications (such as bone marrow failure) to the incidental finding of osteopetrosis on X-ray. Depending on severity and age of onset, features may include fractures, short stature, compressive neuropathies (pressure on the nerves), hypocalcemia with attendant tetanic seizures, and life-threatening pancytopenia. In rare cases, there may be neurological impairment or involvement of other body systems.[11886] Osteopetrosis may be caused by mutations in at least 10 genes. Inheritance can be autosomal recessive, autosomal dominant, or X-linked recessive with the most severe forms being autosomal recessive. Management depends on the specific symptoms and severity and may include vitamin D supplements, various medications, and/or surgery. Adult osteopetrosis ...

(2016) Evidence of the phenotypic expression of a lethal recessive allele under inbreeding in a wild population of conservation concern. Journal of Animal Ecology, 85, 879-891. In this issue of Journal of Animal Ecology, Trask etal. () report on a strange, lethal, blindness that regularly affects chicks of an endangered bird population. The authors show that the inheritance mode of this blindness disease precisely matches the expectations of a recessive deleterious mutation. Intriguingly, there is also an indication that the disease-causing variant might be maintained in the population by balancing selection, due to a selective advantage for heterozygotes. Could this finding have consequences for conservation actions implemented for the population?. ...
Gaucher disease (GD) is an inborn error of metabolism caused by mutations in the gene (GBA) coding for glucocerebrosidase (GCase), inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. GD patients have up to 9% risk of developing PD. We report two patients with GD that developed PD at different disease stages. We reviewed the literature on the coexistence of PD and GD and speculate that the severity of symptoms may be related to the type of GBA mutation inherited.
NIH Rare Diseases : 50 irak-4 deficiency is a condition that affects the immune system (primary immunodeficiency). it causes recurring severe infections by a type of bacteria called pyogenic bacteria. individuals with irak-4 deficiency seem to be particularly susceptible to infections caused by bacteria called streptococcus pneumoniae. the deficiency is caused by mutations in the irak4 gene and is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. treatment may include intravenous immunoglobulin therapy (ivig), taking antibiotics before an infection develops, and vaccines. althought the infections can be life-threatening, they tend to occur less often as a person gets older. last updated: 9/20/2013 ...
Abstract: This review includes for the first time a dynamical systems analysis of human quadrupedalism in Uner Tan syndrome, which is characterized by habitual quadrupedalism, impaired intelligence, and rudimentary speech. The first family was discovered in a small village near Iskenderun, and families were later found in Adana and two other small villages near Gaziantep and Canakkale. In all the affected individuals dynamic balance was impaired during upright walking,and they habitually preferred walking on all four extremities. MRI scans showed inferior cerebellovermian hypoplasia with slightly simplified cerebral gyri in three of the families, but appeared normal in the fourth. PET scans showed a decreased glucose metabolic activity in the cerebellum, vermis and, to a lesser extent the cerebral cortex, except for one patient, whose MRI scan also appeared to be normal. All four families had consanguineous marriages in their pedigrees, suggesting autosomal recessive transmission. The syndrome ...
We have textbook descriptions of all these diseases, but in real life, there can be atypical, milder presentations of the same disease, says Yu. The kids we were studying with autism were alive at age 13. They had double hits for these mutations, but they were much milder mutations. The proteins retained a bit of their function.. The team also examined a cohort of U.S. patients, looking for recessive mutations in six of the genes they identified. They analyzed whole-exome sequence data from 612 families with ASDs, part of a registry known as the Simons Simplex Collection. The analysis suggested that some of the affected children had causative recessive mutations in at least two of the genes identified in the Middle Eastern families, and that larger-scale efforts to examine all 70 genes more fully for recessive mutations may prove fruitful. Its not clear yet how many U.S. families have these recessive mutations, says Yu. Further studies could begin to estimate what fraction of autism cases ...
FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene is a member of the MER/AXL/TYRO3 receptor kinase family and encodes a transmembrane protein with two fibronectin type-III domains, two Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains, and one tyrosine kinase domain. Mutations in this gene have been associated with disruption of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) phagocytosis pathway and onset of autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa (RP). [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008 ...
Each human has two copies of each gene or a form (allele) thereof, one from each parent. One form (allele) of a given gene may be dominant and, if it is, the other form may be recessive - i.e. it can hide or not express itself if a dominant allele of the same gene is present. When a disease is termed genetic recessive, it only manifests itself if an individual has two copies of the recessive, disease-causing allele. If an individual has one copy of the recessive allele and one copy of the dominant allele, s/he is termed a carrier - the disease itself does not show up, but if his or her spouse also has one copy of the recessive allele, their children have a 25% chance of receiving two recessive copies, developing the disease. Tay-Sachs is genetic recessive and kills by age six ...
The Donskoy cat breed is a newer breed, as well. The coat of a Donskoy is determined by a recessive gene in the genetic code. Because this cat breed can be born with hair or without hair, that recessive gene makes the determination early on as to what type of coat each cat will have later in life. There is one distinct way to decipher what the eventual outcome of the coat will be: a bald spot at the time of birth. When Donskoy kittens are born, they will either be born with a bald spot on their heads or without one. If they have any number of bald spots, it is indicated that they will be hairless later in life, typically by the time that they reach two years of age. In contrast, if the bald spot is absent, it is likely that they will have natural hair; although it will still be shorter than most other cat breeds with hair. ...

  • In chickens, three mutant alleles have been reported at the C locus, including the albino mutation, and the recessive white mutation, which is characterized by white plumage and pigmented eyes. (
  • The albino mutation was found to be a 6 bp deletion in the tyrosinase ( TYR ) gene. (
  • The present work describes an approach to identify the structural rearrangement in the TYR gene associated with the recessive white mutation. (
  • In this study, we conclude that the insertion of a complete avian retroviral sequence in intron 4 of the tyrosinase gene is diagnostic of the recessive white mutation in chickens. (
  • This insertion causes aberrant transcripts lacking exon 5, and we propose that this insertion is the causal mutation for the recessive white allele in the chicken. (
  • So far, the molecular structure of the tyrosinase gene has not been studied for the two other alleles C*RE and C*C . In this study, we performed a molecular analysis of the tyrosinase gene in recessive white chickens in order to investigate the gene polymorphism and localize the causal mutation. (

  • An autosomal recessive condition means that a person has to have two copies of the mutation in order to have the disease, rather than one copy, as is seen in dominant conditions. (
  • This form of polyposis is caused when a person has 2 copies of a mutation in the mismatch repair gene, MSH3 . (
  • This is in contrast with the other known mismatch repair genes ( MSH2 , MSH6 , MLH1 and PMS2 ) all associated with Lynch syndrome, a dominant syndrome in which one mutation increases the risk for colon, uterine and other cancers. (
  • Despite this, in many families the causative gene and mutation are unknown. (

  • It may be caused by a mutation on the SLURP1 gene, located on chromosome 8. (
  • A gene mutation would be caused by the chromosome 8qter, which codes for the SLURP1 gene, to be cut, thus causing a mutation in that gene, which would disrupt the way it controls the skin cells. (
  • While the autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance has been long observed, an autosomal recessive pattern has also been reported recently. (

  • Our findings contrast with previous studies of the orthologous murine gene, which showed no phenotype in Alx3-/-homozygotes, apparently as a result of functional redundancy with the paralogous Alx4 gene. (
  • Because, as we noted above, most uniquely European-American traits are recessive, we need to have two parents with European genes in order to have our genotype (our internal blueprint) and phenotype (our outward appearance) continue and not become extinct. (
  • Autosomal recessive osteopetrosis Type I (ARO1, OMIM 259700) is a rare multisystem bone disease, being the most severe phenotype of the various osteoclast disorders. (
  • PEX gene mutations usually result in a severe neurological phenotype (Zellweger spectrum disorders). (
  • At heterozygous gene loci, the two alleles interact to produce the phenotype . (
  • The simplest form of allele interaction is the one described by Mendel, now called Mendelian, in which the appearance/phenotype caused by one allele is apparent, called dominant, and the appearance/phenotype caused by the other allele is not apparent, called recessive. (
  • The shape phenotype is known to be influenced by a single gene that occurs in two allelic forms, A and B. Pea plants that are homozygous AA have round seeds, and those that are homozygous BB have wrinkled seeds. (
  • If only two phenotypes are visible, and a heterozygote exhibits one phenotype, by definition the phenotype exhibited by the heterozygote is called "dominant" and the "hidden" phenotype is considered recessive. (
  • Pycnodysostosis is an uncommon autosomal recessive skeletal dysplasia with a uniform clinical phenotype characterized by short stature, osteosclerosis, acro-osteolysis of the distal phalanges, frequent fractures, clavicular dysplasia and skull deformities with delayed suture closure. (
  • I've been reading through wikipedia on what a phenotype is and from what I can gather it is an observable trait which may be impacted by a specific gene. (
  • Under this definition, having red hair is a phenotype, not having red hair (or, more directly, having black, brown, blonde, etc. hair) is a phenotype, but carrying the recessive gene for red hair is not a phenotype. (
  • In both cases, the phenotype is the outcome of the underlying genes, I just have to make sure I frame my scientific context appropriately. (
  • Hair color is a phenotype, but it has a lot more genetic components than the simple "one gene, two alleles, one completely dominant over the other" model that Mendel found applied to his 7 phenotypes. (
  • The first column of the table is the genotype and showing that red hair is a recessive trait (without naming a gene, but this doesn't matter), the second only is a representation of the first and makes actually no statement about the actual phenotype. (
  • Only if both alleles are recessive does the recessive allele show in the phenotype b. (
  • Amino acid sequence and structure analysis of the proteins coded by different alleles of gm3 gene showed deletion of eight amino acids due to an early stop codon in RP2068-18-3-5 resulting in a change in the functional domain of the protein. (
  • Any individual who then inherits two 'a' alleles at this same gene will then have blue eyes. (
  • You can express their genotype (the alleles they have at a gene) as A_. The _ indicates that you don't actually know the second allele. (
  • Variants of a gene are called alleles. (
  • So recessive alleles are only expressed when both are recessive. (
  • Dominance in genetics is a relationship between different forms ( alleles ) of a gene at a particular physical location ( locus ) on a chromosome . (
  • However, the genes on homologues, may be different alleles or the same alleles. (
  • The "same gene but different version" are called alleles. (
  • Both alleles affect the height, but one version of the gene makes pea plants short and the other makes pea plants tall. (
  • Different forms of one type of gene are called different alleles of that gene. (
  • There can be many different alleles for one gene and it can be completely up to chance, or perhaps luck, what we inherit from our parents. (
  • When speaking in general terms about dominant and recessive alleles, we tend to speak about genes as if for each of them there are two different alleles. (
  • This means that if we inherited both of the different alleles for this gene we would show the dwarfism trait. (
  • The first is homozygous, meaning that the two alleles an individual posesses for one gene are the same i.e. (
  • For a recessive allele to be expressed, both alleles in the pair must be recessive. (
  • The notation AB/ab signifies that the dominant alleles (A,B) of two different gene loci are on one chromosome and the recessive alleles (a,b) are on the homologous chromosome. (

  • That is, the A allele is said to be dominant to the B allele, and the B allele is recessive to the A allele. (
  • For eye color, the brown eye allele is dominant BR (hence the capitals) and the blue eye allele is recessive bl. (
  • Defective myosin VIIA gene responsible for Usher syndrome type 1B. (
  • Enhanced S-cone syndrome (ESCS) is mainly associated with mutations in the NR2E3 gene. (
  • Mast syndrome is an autosomal recessive, complicated form of hereditary spastic paraplegias associated with dementia that has been found in the Old Order Amish population. (
  • G, p.F1397V) in the lysosomal trafficking regulator ( LYST ) gene, which is described as the causative gene for Chédiak-Higashi syndrome (CHS). (
  • CHS is a rare autosomal-recessive syndrome characterised by hypopigmentation, severe immune deficiency, a bleeding tendency and progressive neurological dysfunction. (
  • Segawa Syndrome, Autosomal Recessive, also known as tyrosine hydroxylase deficiency , is related to dystonia, dopa-responsive and myotonia congenita, autosomal dominant , and has symptoms including muscle rigidity , tremor and abnormality of extrapyramidal motor function . (
  • An important gene associated with Segawa Syndrome, Autosomal Recessive is TH (Tyrosine Hydroxylase), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Type II diabetes mellitus and ATF-2 transcription factor network . (
  • Lupski's team used a gene sequencer from Carlsbad, California-based Life Technologies to read the entire DNA code in the samples from Lupski and three of his siblings who have the syndrome, his parents and four other siblings who do not. (
  • The researchers also found that family members who inherited just one faulty copy of the gene had a predisposition to carpal tunnel syndrome, in which a nerve in the wrist can get pinched. (
  • GPSM2 was initially reported as a non-syndromic hearing loss gene but later determined to cause Chudley-McCullough syndrome, see Diaz-Horta et al 2012 and Doherty et al 2012 . (
  • Some genes stay active all the time to make proteins needed for basic cell functions. (
  • Other DSG4 gene mutations result in the production of abnormal DSG4 proteins that cannot communicate signals between cells within hair follicles or skin. (
  • Nonsyndromic recessive retinal dystrophies cause severe visual impairment due to the death of photoreceptor and retinal pigment epithelium cells. (
  • Pycnodysostosis is a rare autosomal recessive skeletal dysplasia characterized by short stature, osteosclerosis, acro-osteolysis, frequent fractures and skull deformities. (
  • Direct DNA sequence analysis was completed for the BEST1 gene. (
  • The researchers went on to sequence these genes in a further 914 mental retardation patients and over a thousand controls, but found only a handful of likely disease-causing mutations in these genes in other patients. (
  • which means both copies of the gene in each cell have mutations. (
