Genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have revealed relationships between over 57,000 genetic variants and diseases. However, unlike Mendelian diseases, complex diseases arise from the interplay of multiple genetic and environmental factors. Natural selection has led to a high tendency of risk alleles to be enriched in minor alleles in Mendelian diseases. Therefore, an allele that was previously advantageous or neutral may later become harmful, making it a risk allele. Using data in the NHGRI-EBI Catalog and the VARIMED database, we investigated whether (1) GWASs more easily detect risk alleles and (2) facilitate evolutionary insights by comparing risk allele frequencies of different diseases. We conducted computer simulations of P-values for association tests when major and minor alleles were risk alleles. We compared the expected proportion of SNVs whose risk alleles were minor alleles with the observed proportion. Our statistical results revealed that risk alleles were enriched in minor alleles,
The foregoing examples show that the finding of population heterozygote advantage, as in the infectious disease studies cited, does not support an inference of allele-specific overdominance, the condition of primary interest as an immunological hypothesis and a mechanism for the maintenance of MHC diversity. Put another way, population heterozygote advantage may appear due to a combination of the two distinct mechanisms we defined in the Introduction: the protective or detrimental effects of particular alleles (R and S alleles in our model), and the effects of heterozygosity itself. The effects of R and S alleles appear as effects of heterozygosity vs. homozygosity because heterozygotes and homozygotes will in general carry different distributions of S and R alleles; thus, in an analysis that fails to condition on the alleles carried, heterozygosity is confounded with the alleles carried.. One advantage of correctly separating the effects of individual alleles from the effects of heterozygosity ...
The APOE e4 allele polymorphism is associated with the increased risk of behavioral and psychological signs and symptoms of dementia. Treatment strategies based on APOE genotypes are being developed. In this study, we aimed to assess the frequencies of APOE4 alleles in patients with Alzheimers disease (AD) and vascular dementia (VaD) in different ethnic and geographic groups, and compare them with our results. Method: We determined APOE polymorphisms in patients with VaD, AD, and in controls. For comparison, the literature was searched systematically. Out of 80 papers, 42 papers were assessed for APOE genotype and allele frequencies from several regions of America, Asia and Europe. Results: There were marked variations in the APOE allele and genotype frequencies in all groups. The strength of association between AD and APOE e4 allele carrying was found significant [OR:2.905 (95%CI: 1.237-6.823)]. APOE e4 allele frequencies (%) showed gradual increase from controls to the AD patients (Control: ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Identification of a novel HLA-Cw*05 allele, Cw*0503. AU - Huang, L. Q.. AU - Boon, T.. AU - Van Pel, Aline. PY - 2000. Y1 - 2000. N2 - HLA-Cw*05 is one of the least polymorphic subgroups of HLA-C; so far only two alleles, namely Cw*0501 and Cw*0502, have been reported. We report here the identification of a third allele, Cw*0503, in a Caucasian individual. Cw*0503 is closely related to Cw*0501 with only six nucleotide substitutions clustering over a fragment of 48 nucleotides at the beginning of exon 4. All these six substitutions at the same positions have been found only in HLA-B*44 alleles, suggesting that Cw*0503 is a result of recombination between Cw*0501 and one of B*44 alleles.. AB - HLA-Cw*05 is one of the least polymorphic subgroups of HLA-C; so far only two alleles, namely Cw*0501 and Cw*0502, have been reported.

PCR amplification of hypervariable loci, including VNTR, has increased the sensitivity for typing hypervariable regions of human DNA showing multiallelic variation. In previous studies, the Southern blot method was used to test the association of rare HRAS1 VNTR alleles and lung cancer. However, Southern blotting is limited in its ability to adequately resolve small differences in allele lengths, especially for the larger alleles and, therefore, may lead to allelic misclassification. Our data indicate that the presence of rare HRAS1 alleles significantly increases the risk of NSCLC, especially among male smokers (odds ratio = 2.13; 95% CI, 1.7-2.6; P = 0.007). Conversely, although Heighway et al. (25) found no significant differences in rare alleles among British lung cancer patients when compared with a cancer-free control group, they did find a significantly higher frequency of the largest common allele (a4) in NSCLC patients than in controls (29 versus 15%). This finding, however, was not ...
Accurate estimation of allele‐specific expression was achieved by using both specific and common probes, with the intensities of the latter reflecting the total expression of the two alleles (Figure 1B). One main challenge was accounting for off‐target effects. Part of contribution toward hybridization signal of allele‐specific probes comes from their cross‐hybridization with transcripts of the other allele (Figure 1B). Indeed, in most cases, allele‐specific probes have only one nucleotide mismatch with the other allele and show significant hybridization with it. Not accounting for this effect would lead to biased estimation of allele‐specific expression levels. This off‐target effect was accounted for by modeling the probe intensities as noisy observations of weighted sums of the two allelic levels (equation (1)). The weights represent the affinities of the probe with respect to each allele. They are equal for common probes and can differ for specific probes, none being a priori ...
Allelic association methods based on increased transmission of marker alleles will have to be employed for the mapping of complex disease susceptibility genes. However, because the extent of association of single marker alleles with disease is a function of the relative frequency of the allele on disease-associated chromosomes versus non disease-predisposing chromosomes, the most associated marker allele in a region will not necessarily be closest to the disease locus. To overcome this problem we describe a haplotype-based approach developed for mapping of the putative type 1 diabetes susceptibility gene IDDM6. Ten microsatellite markers spanning a 550 kb segment of chromosome 18q21 in the putative IDDM6 region were genotyped in 1708 type 1 diabetic Caucasian families from seven countries. The most likely ancestral diabetogenic chromosome was reconstructed in a step-wise fashion by analysing linkage disequilibrium between a previously defined haplotype of three adjacent markers and the next ...
In many cases, genotypic interactions between the two alleles at a locus can be described as leading to dominant or recessive, according to which of the two homozygous phenotypes the heterozygote most resembles. Where the heterozygote is indistinguishable from one of the homozygotes, the allele expressed is the one that leads to the dominant phenotype.[6] The degree and pattern of dominance varies among loci. This type of interaction was first formally described by Gregor Mendel. However, many traits defy this simple categorization and the phenotypes are modeled by co-dominance and polygenic inheritance. The term "wild type" allele is sometimes used to describe an allele that is thought to contribute to the typical phenotypic character as seen in "wild" populations of organisms, such as fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster). Such a "wild type" allele was historically regarded as leading to a dominant (overpowering - always expressed), common, and normal phenotype, in contrast to "mutant" alleles ...

The stepwise mutation model (SMM) is a mathematical theory, developed by Motoo Kimura and Tomoko Ohta, that allows for investigation of the equilibrium distribution of allelic frequencies in a finite population where neutral alleles are produced in step-wise fashion. The original model assumes that if an allele has a mutation that causes it to change in state, mutations that occur in repetitive regions of the genome will increase or decrease by a single repeat unit at a fixed rate (i.e. by the addition or subtraction of one repeat unit per generation) and these changes in allele states are expressed by an integer (. . . A-1, A, A1, .. .). The model also assumes random mating and that all alleles are selectively equivalent for each locus. The SMM is distinguished from the Kimura-Crow model, also known as the infinite alleles model (IAM), in that as the population size increases to infinity, while the product of the Ne (effective population size) and the mutation rate is fixed, the mean number of ...
Normal variation in gene expression due to regulatory polymorphisms is often masked by biological and experimental noise. In addition, some regulatory polymorphisms may become apparent only in specific tissues. We derived human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells from adult skin primary fibroblasts and attempted to detect tissue-specific cis-regulatory variants using in vitro cell differentiation. We used padlock probes and high-throughput sequencing for digital RNA allelotyping and measured allele-specific gene expression in primary fibroblasts, lymphoblastoid cells, iPS cells, and their differentiated derivatives. We show that allele-specific expression is both cell type and genotype-dependent, but the majority of detectable allele-specific expression loci remains consistent despite large changes in the cell type or the experimental condition following iPS reprogramming, except on the X-chromosome. We show that our approach to mapping cis-regulatory variants reduces in vitro experimental ...

List of alleles describe known sequence alternatives in a variable region. Alleles are contained in Bio::Variation::VariantI complying objects. See Bio::Variation::VariantI for details.. Bio::Varation::Alleles are PrimarySeqI complying objects which can contain database cross references as specified in Bio::DBLinkContainerI interface, too.. A lot of the complexity with dealing with Allele objects are caused by null alleles; Allele objects that have zero length sequence string.. In addition describing the allele by its sequence , it possible to give describe repeat structure within the sequence. This done using methods repeat_unit (e.g. ca) and repeat_count (e.g. 7).. ...
function manually one at a time. However, this approach takes too much time to compute allele frequencies for 5,000 SNPs. Recall that allele frequency of A is given by $f(A) = p = \frac{2 \times (\text{no. of } AA \text{ individuals}) + 1 \times (\text{no. of } Aa \text{ individuals})}{2 \times \text{total no. of individuals}}.$ We can rewrite this equation into $f(A) = p = \frac{(\text{no. of } A \text{ allele in the population})}{2 \times \text{total no. of individuals}}.$ This suggests that all we need is the number of $$A$$ allele or reference allele $$a$$ for each SNP. The ...
Although single-SNP associations were not significant at pFDR,0.05, several genes were significant in the ARTP analyses. In AA women, significant ARTP gene-level associations included CDH1 with LN+ (pARTP=0.10; multi-allelic OR=1.13, 95% CI 1.07-1.19, pFDR=0.0003) and SIPA1 with ER− breast cancer (pARTP=0.10; multi-allelic OR=1.16, 95% CI 1.02-1.31, pFDR=0.03). In EA women, MTA2 was associated with overall breast cancer risk (pARTP=0.004), regardless of ER status, and with LN− disease (pARTP=0.01). Also significant were SATB1 in ER− (pARTP=0.03; multi-allelic OR=1.12, 95% CI 1.05-1.20, pFDR=0.003) and KISS1 in LN− (pARTP=0.10; multi-allelic OR=1.18, 95% CI 1.08-1.29, pFDR=0.002) analyses. Among LN+ cases, significant ARTP associations were observed for SNAI1, CD82, NME1, and CTNNB1 (multi-allelic OR=1.09, 95% CI 1.04-1.14, pFDR=0.001 ...
4586 A number of studies have shown that HLA-DR, DQ and DP alleles are associated with an increased risk of paediatric acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL), but the significance of these multiple HLA locus/allele associations for the aetiology of childhood ALL remains uncertain. One possibility is that they denote differences in immune responsiveness to a causative infection(s), mediated by the differential antigenic peptide-binding efficiency of HLA class II alleles. We previously reported that B cell precursor ALL [BCP] was associated with HLA-DPB1*0201 and related alleles with glutamic acid (E) at position DPβ169 in the P4 peptide binding pocket (PBP). However, recent studies suggest that DPB1 alleles can be clustered into a small number of functional supertypes based on the shared peptide binding characteristics of several PBP. To determine whether these influence the risk of BCP ALL, we clustered DPB1 alleles into 3 pairs of supertypes, defined by di-allelic polymorphisms at DPβ184, 69 and ...
The Hardy-Weinberg Law states: In a large, random-mating population that is not affected by the evolutionary processes of mutation, migration, or selection, both the allele frequencies and the genotype frequencies are constant from generation to generation. Furthermore, the genotype frequencies are related to the allele frequencies by the square expansion of those allele frequencies. In other words, the Hardy-Weinberg Law states that under a restrictive set of assumptions, it is possible to calculate the expected frequencies of genotypes in a population if the frequency of the different alleles in a population is known.. The genotype frequencies are calculated using the square expansion of the allele frequencies. To illustrate this concept, assume that at some locus, A, you have two alleles, call them A1, and A2. Assume that the frequency of allele A1 is p and the frequency of allele A2 is q. We can write this as:. f(A1) = p f(A2) = q. Under Hardy-Weinberg conditions, the expected genotypic ...
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. ...
Figure 6 Five alleles in Model II. w, wild-type allele with target genes containing sequence recognized by the nuclease. n, allele with nuclease gene inserted in the middle of the target sequence, protecting the chromosome from being cut but also disrupting the target gene. e, effector gene linked to a target gene in which the recognition sequence has been changed so it is no longer recognized by the nuclease. d, disrupted target gene formed by non-HR of w alleles or by loss of nuclease from n alleles. r, functional target gene that is also resistant to cleavage due to not having the target sequence; can be formed by non-HR of w alleles or by loss of the effector gene of e alleles. Note that other alleles are possible, such as effector with disrupted target gene (e.g., formed by spontaneous mutation of e alleles), or effector with functional target gene with target sequence (e.g., formed by recombination between w and e alleles). These are expected to be rare because they are formed rarely and ...

INTRODUCTION:Type 1A diabetes mellitus (T1ADM) is a multifactorial disease in which genetic and environmental aspects are important to its development. The association of genetic variations with disease has been demonstrated in several studies; however, the role of some gene loci has not yet been fully elucidated. OBJECTIVE:To compare the frequency of HLA alleles and polymorphism in CTLA-4 and insulin genes in Brazilians with T1ADM and individuals without the disease, as well as to identify genetic markers that are able to discriminate between diabetic and non-diabetic individuals. METHODS: The presence of HLA DQB1, DQA1 and DRB1 alleles, as well as the -2221 MspI polymorphism in the insulin gene and 49 A/G ...
a , Incomplete lineage sorting can produce discrepancy between the phylogenetic tree for a specific gene or a genomic segment and the overall species-level phylogenetic tree. If an ancestral species is polymorphic (in this case, it is segregating Alleles A and B) and divides into two descendent lineages, then both alleles can be retained in the two daughter lineages. If one of these lineages divides again relatively soon, then all three species lineages may carry both alleles. Over time, each lineage will lose one or the other allele owing to genetic drift or selection. In this case, Species 1 retains Allele A and Species 3 retains Allele B. For this genomic segment, Species 2 will seem to be more closely related to either Species 1 or Species 3 depending on whether it retains Allele A or Allele B. Retention of Allele B would mean that this genomic segment matches the overall species-level phylogenetic tree, but retention of Allele A would lead to discrepancy. Analyses of whole-genome sequences ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Evolutionary origins of retroposon lineages of Mhc class II Ab alleles. AU - Lu, Cheng-Chan. AU - Ye, Ying. AU - She, Jin Xiong. AU - Bonhomme, Francois. AU - Wakeland, Edward K.. PY - 1996/5/1. Y1 - 1996/5/1. N2 - Major histocompatibility complex (Mhc) class II Ab genes have evolved into three distinct lineages. While lineage 2 alleles differ from lineage 1 alleles by the insertion of a retroposon in intron 2, the basis for the extremely large intron 2 in lineage 3 alleles has heretofore been undetermined. In this report, we demonstrate by nucleotide sequencing that the genomic sequences of prototypic alleles from all three lineages diverge significantly and that lineage 3 is derived from lineage 2 by two insertional events in intron 2. One insert, composed of a member of B1 short interspersed repetitive elements (SINEs), occurs 508 base pairs (bp) 3 of exon 2, and the other, 1141 bp 3 of exon 2 within the retroposon that distinguishes lineage 2 from lineage 1. To assess the ...
How common is an observed genetic allele in the population?. Simple question, but no simple answers. This is the challenge for all clinical geneticists and translational researchers alike. Current human allele frequency information is simply inadequate for accurate clinical interpretation sequence based tests and rare disease causal variant identification.. What if allele frequencies were readily available for every position in the human genome?. This is a community-based effort to address this need. Registered community members have access to anonymous, pooled allele frequencies computed from across the whole community. All community data is safe, secure and anonymous.. ...
In the present study, we identified and characterized 2 common polymorphisms in the promoter region of the MMP-7 gene that are functional in vitro and seem to influence coronary arterial dimensions in a preliminary study of hypercholesterolemic patients with manifest CAD. Hypercholesterolemic patients carrying the G allele at position −181 had smaller reference luminal diameters before PTCA than did patients homozygous for the A allele. Furthermore, carriers of the T allele at position −153 had smaller reference diameters before PTCA than did patients homozygous for the C allele. In vitro in the human monocyte/macrophage cell line U937, the −81 A/G and the −153 C/T polymorphisms influenced the binding of nuclear proteins. Also, basal promoter activity was higher in promoter constructs harboring the combination of the 2 rare alleles in transient transfection studies.. The finding that the G allele of the −181 A/G and the T allele of the −153 T/C polymorphisms, both of which are ...
We prove a result concerning the joint distribution of alleles at linked loci on a chromosome drawn from the population at stationarity. For a neutral locus, the allele is a draw from the stationary distribution of the mutation process. Furthermore, this allele is independent of the alleles at different loci on any chromosomes in the population.. ...
The immune response to HIV infection is complex involving multiple interactive pathways and components. These pathways are influenced by both virus and host genetic factors, which determine disease progression, complications and response to treatment. HIV virus evades the antigen specific T-cell immunity by undergoing mutations throughout its entire genome, which at a population level are both positively and negatively associated with particular HLA alleles. The extent to which this adaptation occurs influences viral load. These results provide evidence that host HLA is an important factor imprinting on viral evolution. Host genetic factors are also important predictors of clinical course and complications in established HIV infection. In cross-sectional and longitudinal studies of the WA HIV cohort, we have shown certain HLA and chemokine receptor alleles influence viral load set point. In addition, the presence of certain NK cell KIR genes influence outcome, particularly, in relation to rate ...

Figure 1. The table should be interpreted as follows: For row 1, the locus is DQ, and the allele is 201. This particular allele codes for alanine at postion 57 of the Beta chain of the MHC II molecule, making the patient susceptible to IDDM. For row 2, allele 302 also codes for alanine and elicits the same result. For row 3, allele 303 in the same locus codes for aspartic acid, conferring immunity on the host, etc (Tisch 1996). It is believed that MHC alleles susceptible to autoantigen specific T cells, particularly Th1 cells specific for B cell islet antigens, mediate IDDM susceptibility. These susceptible cells bind antigens that elicit a primarily Th1 cell response. The resistant alleles, like those of the DR isotype expressing aspartic acid, elicit a primarily Th2 cell response. Studies support this hypothesis, as nonobese diabetic mice (because human testing would be unethical, animal models are used to better understand IDDM. The most common model uses mice infected with IDDM, also known ...
For example, lets take an extremely simple case. Say the frequency of an allele in a population is 0.15 or 15%, while the frequency of another allele is 0.20 or 20%. Based on random assortment or chance, one would predict the two alleles would be found together with a frequency of 0.15 x 0.20 = 0.03 or 3% of the time. However, say in reality the two alleles are found together 15% of the time in the population. So, since 15% is 5.0 times greater than 3%, the two alleles are found together 5.0 times more frequently than expected or predicted by their individual allele frequencies i.e. random assortment or chance. Thus, this disequilibrium suggests linkage of the two alleles on a specific locus or loci which is on, say, chromosome 7 ...
Try again. Im assuming the data in the table is the allele frequency for the three alleles of locus 1 and that each column is one taxon-and here I reveal my ignorance of genetic terms because I dont know for certain what a taxon is and I havent bothered to look up the definition. For the other 10 loci there may be a fewer or greater number of alleles per locus. If the tabulated data are the allele frequencies, then the answer to 3) is just read off the table multiplied by 100 to express the proportion as a percentage. For 1) you should be able to caluclate %P for each column (taxon?) as ((# loci with multiple alleles)/11)X100. For the number of alleles/locus wouldnt that just be (total # of alleles)/11 calculated for each column? The allele frequencies should just be read off the table, I think. Then the %heterozygosity for each locus can be calculated per taxon with Hardy-Weinberg, as above, and the average heterozygosity would be the average of the %heterozygosity per locus calculated for ...
In contrast, monoallelic transcription was restricted to exon 1′ in tumor 26 (Fig. 4 ⇓ , Lane 7). The two alleles were present in approximately the same copy numbers, and transcripts associated with exons Ha, E, and 1 were symmetrically expressed from the two alleles (Fig. 4 ⇓ , Lanes 7-10). For comparison, a sample demonstrating equal copy numbers for both the N and n alleles and symmetrical expression from each of the promoters is shown (T3; Fig. 4 ⇓ , Lanes 11-15).. In a panel of 14 ER-negative tumors, 8 were heterozygous; of these, 5 demonstrated evidence of amplification of one allele. In two samples, the N allele was amplified, whereas in three samples, the n allele was amplified (data not shown), suggesting that ER expression was extinguished after gene amplification had occurred. As expected, when samples were analyzed for allele-specific transcription, no conclusion could be drawn because only low levels of cDNA and, therefore, mRNA were detected.. The observed monoallelic ...
I am running an experiment in which I need to sample all six HLA class I alleles (HLA-A, HLA-B, HLA-C) repeatedly. Is there a dataset online that contains this information? I found this website (http://www.allelefrequencies.net/) but I cannot figure out how to get the data from it in the format that I want. Any help is appreciated. Thank you. EDIT: Sorry, I think the question was a little unclear. What I want to do is have a dataset containing a set of patients, and all 6 of their HLA alleles. Is there such a dataset available somewhere? ...
The distinction between genotype and phenotype is commonly experienced when studying family patterns for certain hereditary diseases or conditions, for example, hemophilia. Humans and most animals are diploid; thus there are two alleles for any given gene. These alleles can be the same (homozygous) or different (heterozygous), depending on the individual (see zygote). With a dominant allele, the offspring is guaranteed to inherit the trait in question irrespective of the second allele.. In the case of an albino with a recessive allele (aa), the phenotype depends upon the other allele (Aa, aA, aa or AA). An affected person mating with a heterozygous individual (Aa or aA, also carrier) there is a 50-50 chance the offspring will be albinos phenotype. If a heterozygote mates with another heterozygote, there is 75% chance passing the gene on and only a 25% chance that the gene will be displayed. A homozygous dominant (AA) individual has a normal phenotype and no risk of abnormal offspring. A ...
Supposing we have the genotypes "Aa", "AA", and "aa"... which are not mono-allelic (not imprinted and not X-inactivated). Does the dominance of the "A" allele over "a" allele affect which gene is transcribed, or are both alleles transcribed and the allelic dominance only determines the observed phenotype? Im guessing its the latter, but that makes me confused as to what the concept of allelic dominance would mean for mono-allelic expression, where only one allele is always expressed and observed. ...
The majority of the population specific SNPs had a rather low frequency for the minor allele of less than 20%, but some SNPs with higher frequencies were also identified. 14 SNPs had a minor allele frequency of 19% and less, while only 7 SNPs had a minor allele frequency of 20% and higher. For SNPs with minor alleles in 2 populations, the higher minor frequency value was chosen for this diagram. Some caution should be applied not to overestimate or interpolate our results. Both datasets as well as the work of Stephens et al. (2001) are based on a limited number of individuals for each population group . Hence, alleles with a very low frequency in any one population may have been missed. Therefore it is possible and likely that some of the alleles that were not identified in one population group may be present at low frequencies in these groups, so that many of the SNPs that were included in our analysis as they showed a 0% frequency for the minor allele would have to be excluded as their real ...
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 ...
Results A total of 24 comparative studies were included in this meta-analysis, including 22,682 patients with RA and 23,493 controls. The meta-analysis showed an association between the second allele of rs10818488 and RA in all study subjects (OR 1.170, 95% CI 1.082-1.266, p = 8.2 x 10-6). Analysis after stratification by population indicated that the second allele of rs10818488 were associated with RA in Europeans, but not in Asians (OR 1.229, 95% CI 1.094-1.381, p = 0.001; OR 1.060, 95% CI 0.930-1.335, p = 0.092). The meta-analysis also indicated an association between the second allele of rs3761847 and RA in all study subjects (OR 1.098, 95% CI 1.019-1.184, p = 0.015). The second allele of rs3761847 was associated with RA in Europeans, but not in Asians (OR 1.156, 95% CI 1.006-1.327, p = 0.041; OR 1.049, 95% CI 0.952-1.156, p = 0.333). The meta-analysis revealed an association between the second allele of the rs2900180 polymorphism and the risk of developing RA in all study subjects and ...

A mathematical equation that can be used to calculate the frequencies of alleles.. It states that in large, randomly mating population, on absences of migration, mutation and selection, the gene pool remains constant. The proportion of dominant and recessive alleles of a particular gene remains ththe same.. it can use the frequency of one allele to predict expected proportions of the genotype in the population. It demonstrates the large amount of recessive alleles in heterozygotes, who are the reservoir of genetic variability.. P^(2) + 2pq+ q^(2)= 1. P is frequency of dominant allele, q is frequency of recessive allele. P + q = q, but the next generation:. PP = p^(2), Pq= 2pq, pp= q^(2). ...
Correct Response: B. This question requires examinees to demonstrate an understanding of the principles of Mendelian genetics and inheritance and the application of those principles to genotype and phenotype variation in plants. The parent plants in this cross are heterozygous for two traits, which means they each contain a dominant allele and a recessive allele for pod color (Gg) and a dominant allele and a recessive allele for seed shape (Rr), with G and R representing the dominant alleles of each gene. A cross between these two plants can be represented as GgRr × GgRr. According to the principle of independent assortment, each parent plant will produce four types of gametes: GR, Gr, gR, and gr. A Punnett square can be used to determine the number and type of genotypes produced by this cross. When a 4 × 4 Punnett square is constructed by placing one set of gametes on the top of the square and the other set of gametes along the side of the square, the results show a total of 16 possible ...
The Comai laboratory does not work any longer on the REVOLUTA gene. Following our publication in Development we are sometime asked for alleles. The rev-1 allele is available from TAIR. The other alleles described in the paper are no longer available in my laboratory. We distributed seed while available, but the most of these seem to have gone to the great fields in the sky. While still in Seattle (around 2005) we searched the TILLING collection of STP for additional alleles. We collected and grew 28 new alleles, of which 2 showed strong phenotypes. ...
The proinflamatory cytokine interleukin-1b (IL-1b) and the interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1Ra), which is a specific inhibitor of IL-1 activity, have been shown to be induced in vitro byMycobacterium tuberculosis. Moreover patients with tuberculosis present an elevated serum concentration of IL-1Ra and IL-1Ra was identified as a marker of disease activity in tuberculosis (Juffermans et al., 1998). Within the IL-1b gene, two biallelic polymorphisms have been identified at positions −511 and +3953, respectively. An 86-base pair variable number of tandem repeats polymorphism with five different alleles is found in theIL-1Ra gene. Genetic analysis detected that theIL-1Ra VNTR allele A2 was associated with a higher production of IL-1Ra in response to M. tuberculosisinfection. Indeed, individuals with the IL-1Ra A2+ allele produced 1.9-fold more IL-1Ra than patients with IL-1Ra A2- alleles (Wilkinson et al., 1999). The two polymorphisms in IL-1bwere not clearly associated with the level of ...
Matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) is an enzyme with proteolytic activity against matrix and nonmatrix proteins, particularly basement membrane constituents. Thus, any naturally occurring genetic variants that directly affect gene expression and/or protein function would be expected to impact on progression of pathological processes involving tissue remodeling. We scanned a 2-kilobase pair promoter region and all 13 exons of the human MMP-2 gene, from a panel of 32 individuals, and we identified the position, nature, and relative allele frequencies of 15 variant loci as follows: 6 in the promoter, 1 in the 5-untranslated region, 6 in the coding region, 1 in intronic sequence, and 1 in the 3-untranslated region. The majority of coding region polymorphisms resulted in synonymous substitutions, whereas three promoter variants (at -1306, -790, and +220) mapped onto cis-acting elements. We functionally characterized all promoter variants by transient transfection experiments with 293, RAW264.7, and A10
The yolk proteins, denoted as Pa F, correspond to the fraction marked Pr 2 in Tanabe and Ogawa [17]. The number of bands observed for homozygotes was the same as in the mentioned study. However, the five or six bands observed in this subregion of heterozygotes do not correspond to those presented by Tanabe and Ogawa [17]. The phenotype frequencies recorded in this study were similar to those of the same breeds of hens studied in the years 1970 1980. The allele TfB frequency ranged between 0.80 and 1.00, whereas the allele TfC was very rare, and the allele TfA, which had been quite often present during the 1970s in the hens bred in Poland [8], in this study was not observed at all. The frequencies of ovalbumin encoding alleles can be compared to those studied by Stratil [15], Kury [9] and Moiseeva et al. [10]. The frequencies calculated here correspond with those presented by these authors. It should be added, however, that the ovalbumin alleles A and B, as well as the alleles of the remaining ...
Forces that determine the allele frequencies in natural populations include genetic drift, natural selection, migration and mutation
A local barrier to gene flow will delay the spread of an advantageous allele. Exact calculations for the deterministic case show that an allele that is favorable when rare is delayed very little even by a strong barrier; its spread is allowed by a time proportional to log((B/σ)√2S)/S, where B is the barrier strength, σ the dispersal range, and fitnesses are 1:1 + S:1 + 2S. However, when there is selection against heterozytes, such that the allele cannot increase from low frequency, a barrier can cause a much greater delay. If gene flow is reduced below a critical value, spread is entirely prevented. Stochastic simulations show that with additive selection, random drift slows down the spread of the allele, below the deterministic speed of σ√2S. The delay to the advance of an advantageous allele caused by a strong barrier can be substantially increased by random drift and increases with B/(2Sρσ2) in a one-dimensional habitat of density ρ. However, with selection against heterozygotes, ...
Although it is likely that chromosomal deletions occur randomly, those that result in a proliferative advantage or resistance to, e.g., physiological apoptosis could initiate clonal outgrowth. Selection for clones with a specific region of LOH could be related to a somatic or germline loss of a wild-type allele, resulting in hemizygosity for an SNP-encoded, disease-prone allele or a somatic or germline mutated allele (Fig. 1). If the affected area includes promoters of alleles that are differentially silenced (imprinted), deletion can lead to either a gain of imprinting (GOI) or loss of imprinting (LOI). This can result in changes in gene expression. UPD can also lead to the duplication of an imprinted expressed allele or a silenced (methylated), imprinted allele. When the transcription of both alleles is required for normal cellular physiology, deletions can result in pathological haploinsufficiency, and thus LOH is less likely to play a pathogenic role (Fig. 1).. There are similarities and ...

Results We identified 4 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP; -572 C , G, -278A, C in the promoter, and 330 T , G, and 334 A , T in exon 2) and a -373 AnTn tract polymorphism in the IL-6 gene. The genotype frequency, -373 A10T11, -278 C, and 334 T allele were significantly associated with SLE (p , 0.001, p = 0.03 and p = 0.005, respectively). Patients with SLE carrying the -572 G allele had anti-dsDNA more frequently (p = 0.007). In addition, thrombocytopenia was significantly more common in patients carrying the -278 C allele (p = 0.006). In the haplotype analysis, patients with SLE had more frequently haplotype HT3 (CA10T11ATA, dominant model, p = 0.012) that was associated with arthritis, leukopenia, anti-dsDNA, and hypocomplementemia. Promoter reporter structures carrying the -278 C allele displayed significantly higher promoter activity than the -278 A allele in Hep3B cells (p , 0.001) and HeLa cells (p , 0.001). ...
This SNP, located in the fourth exon of the ApoE gene, affects the amino acid at position 130 of the resulting protein. The more common rs429358 allele is (T). If the allele is (C) and the same chromosome also harbors the rs7412(C) allele, the combination is known as an APOE-ε4 allele. The APOE-ε4 allele has a strong influence on the risk of Alzheimers disease. Many studies have estimated the level of risk, and it varies depending on age, sex, ethnicity, and other factors. One meta-analysis estimated the odds ratios for homozygous rs429358(C;C) individuals compared to the more common ApoE3/ApoE3 homozygotes to be 12x for late-onset Alzheimers and 61x for early-onset disease. [PMID 10325447] Meta-analyses have also supported the association between the APOE-ε4 allele and somewhat increased risk for heart disease, with an odds ratio of 1.42 (CI: 1.26 - 1.61).[15488874?dopt=Abstract PMID 15488874] Note: Although ApoE status is technically defined by these two SNPs, rs429358 and rs7412, a SNP ...
When LOH occurs by mitotic recombination (process #4 above), one daughter cell becomes homozygous for the mutant allele but the other becomes homozygous for the normal ("wild-type") allele. This is of no help when tumor-suppressor genes are involved but in other situations it can be. A rare skin disease of humans called ichthyosis with confetti is an example. It is caused by the inheritance of a dominant mutation in one of the keratins (which make intermediate filaments). At birth, infants with the disease have uniformly reddened skin whose cells are heterozygous for the dominant mutant allele and a normal keratin allele. But as the years go by, an increasing number of patches of normal, whitened, skin appear (like "confetti"). Genomic analysis reveals that each patch develops from a skin stem cell that by mitotic recombination has undergone "reduction to homozygosity". In this case, the daughter cell that inherits two normal keratin alleles goes on to generate a patch of normal skin. This work ...
The GRC currently favors a model in which haplotypic integrity is retained within blocks of linkage disequilibrium (LD) as best possible, every base is found at an MAF ,5% in some population (i.e. no universally rare alleles) and coding alleles are favored over non-coding alleles, so long as they too are not universally rare. However, additional analyses will be performed before any bases changes are made. Examples of genomic regions where the existing reference base is associated with disease (ASPN, PMID:15640800) or non-coding variants (CYP3A5, PMID:11279519) are presented below in Figures 1 and 2. In the former case, the reference base is the minor allele, while in the latter, it is the major allele. We invite you to consider examples such as these as you form your own views of what should be represented in the reference assembly. If you have questions or concerns about base updates for GRCh38, let us know! ...

Heterozygote / homozygote. A heterozygote is an individual having two different alleles at a genetic locus; a homozygote is an individual having two copies of the same allele at a locus. The term homozygote is also sometimes applied to larger genetic entities, such as a whole chromosome: a homozygote is then an individual having two copies of the same chromosome ...
Discussion. We have detected differences in the association between the CFH gene and exudative AMD in Chinese from Caucasians as well as Japanese, though it was more similar between Chinese and Japanese (Table 2).. SNP rs1061170 (Y402H) has been identified as the major genetic factor for developing AMD in Caucasians. Frequencies of the C allele were between 61-94% in AMD and 34-46% in controls [9-17]. However, the Y402H C allele was low in frequency in our Chinese study population (5.8% in cases and 3.9% in controls). It was not associated with exudative AMD. Actually such low frequency does not allow conclusion of genetic susceptibility in Chinese. In Japanese, the C allele was also at a low frequency and not associated with exudative AMD [24,25]. Dramatic differences may exist in the allele frequencies of individual SNPs across populations [32].. In the present study, three alleles, T, G, C, respectively for SNPs in the promoter (rs3753394), exon 2 (rs800292) and intron 15 (rs1329428) located ...

Identity by descent Two or more alleles are be identical by descent (IBD) if they have been inherited from the same ancestral allele without recombination events. A common way to identify alleles as identical by descent is usually carried using SNP data. If enough SNPs in two alleles are the observed as the same, then the two alleles are inferred as IBD. See also half-identical region ...
According to our knowledge, our work was the first finding of the assessment polymorphisms A to G in the promoter of FoxP3 gene and its relation to susceptibility to tuberculosis. We observed that the presence of G allele in male and GG genotype in female patients with TB could be an effective marker increasing risk factor to emergence of TB. Several previous studies confirmed that Treg cells play critical roles in the development of TB and their number increases in peripheral blood and disease sites in patient [7-12].Since FoxP3 is the most specific molecular marker for naturally occurring Treg cells, therefore, many studies has been done on FoxP3 gene expression that some of them have shown increased FoxP3 gene expression in patients with TB [27-29]. Our previous reports showed significant higher expression of FoxP3 gene in TB patients. The combination of data from the FoxP3 gene expression and SNP polymorphism provided the surprising finding. Here, our data viewed approximately 5- folds more ...

function: starting with an observed allele count, it computes an associated threshold filter allele frequency for a variant. Technically, this is the highest disease-specific maximum credible population AF for which the observed AC is not compatible with pathogenicity. More practically, If the filter allele frequency of a variant is above the maximum credible population AF for a condition of interest, then that variant should be filtered (ie not considered a candidate causative variant). The filter allele frequency corresponds to the "filter_AF" annotation in the ExAC dataset. The value in ExAC was computed for a 95% confidence - here the user can choose from a range of thresholds.. Observed population AC - e.g. in ExAC.. Reference population size - we recommend using the number of alleles successfully sequenced at the site (often denoted AN) rather than the full population size. Defaults to 121,412, representing a variant succesfully genotyped in the entire ExAC population.. Confidence - select ...
A quality found in the relationship between two versions of a gene. Individuals receive one version of a gene, called an allele, from each parent. If the alleles are different, the dominant allele will be expressed, while the effect of the other allele, called recessive, is masked. In the case of a recessive genetic disorder, an individual must inherit two copies of the mutated allele in order for the disease to be present.. ...
Use of the NGS to type patients with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes and control subjects resulted in the following principal findings. First, among the 25 HLA-DRB1 alleles, only 4 (DRB1*03:01:01, DRB1*04:01:01, DRB1*04:04:01, and DRB1*04:05:01) were positively associated with type 1 diabetes. The H-score was used as a way to rank the relative degree of protection. Second, NGS detected nine alleles of DRB3, DRB4, and DRB5, including chromosomes with only nonamplified loci. Only DRB4*01:03:01 and DRB3*01:01:02 were positively associated; the remaining five alleles were negatively associated with the disease. Most importantly, DRB4 was dichotomized in that DRB4*01:03:01 was positively but DRB4*01:01:01 was negatively associated with type 1 diabetes. Similarly, DRB3*01:01:02 was positively but DRB3*02:02:01 was negatively associated with the disease. Because either one of these two alleles may be present on a haplotype containing DRB1*03:01:01, it cannot be excluded that the risk of this allele for ...

Characterization of the pleiotropic effects of ten new putative W locus mutations, nine co-isogenic and one highly congenic with the C57BL/6J strain, reveals a wide variety of influences upon pigmentation, blood formation and gametogenesis. None of the putative alleles, each of which is closely linked to Ph, a gene 0.1 cM from W, gave evidence of complementation with W39, a new allele previously shown to be allelic to Wv. All W/W39 genotypes resulted in black-eyed-white anemics with reduced gametogenic activity. Homozygotes for seven of these mutations are lethal during perinatal life; anemic embryos have been identified in litters produced by intercross matings involving each of these alleles.--Phenotypes of mice of several mutant genotypes provide exceptions to the frequent observation that a double dose of dominant W alleles (e.g., W/Wv or W/W) results in defects of corresponding severity in each of the three affected tissues. One viable homozygote has little or no defect in blood

We know that hornless cattle are safer for people, their herdmates, and themselves. Unfortunately, the combination of polledness and elite genes for other, more critical traits (like milk yield and productive life) dont often appear in the same animals. We could spend several decades using polled sires to introgress the POLLED allele (allele = version of a gene) into the broader dairy population, but we would sacrifice gains in other traits, because along with the POLLED allele, the calves would get other stretches of less desirable DNA. (However, the nice thing about the POLLED allele is that its dominant, meaning that only one POLLED allele is required. At that same location on the other paired chromosome, there can be the horned allele, but we would still have a polled cow.). You may have heard of gene editing, particularly with a system called CRISPRs. These CRISPR molecules can be introduced into target cells and are capable of recognizing a particular stretch of DNA and cutting at that ...
The Columbian pattern (e) is almost completely dominant to Cornish but is less completely dominant to the Brown Leghorn pattern. The data are insufficient at this time to determine the relationship of the Cornish and Brown Leghorn patterns. The data suggest that these patterns are produced by two alleles at the E locus thus giving a four allele series. It is possible, however, that further investigation may show these two patterns to be produced by a single allele at this locus and that the differences between them is caused by genes modifying the basic black-red pattern and resulting in a three allele series ...
The difference between the two becomes more pronounced in the case of traits. A trait refers to what you see, so it is the physical expression of the genes themselves. Alleles determine the different versions of the genes that we see. A gene is like a machine that has been put together. However, how it will works will depend on the alleles. ...

In all replicates, the number of sampled individuals in each sampling event was twice as large as the size of the simulated population. When sample sizes are small, sampling error rather than genetic drift may be the primary reason for observed changes in allele frequencies (Waples 1989b). We avoided this problem by assuming large samples could be taken from the population. Fortunately, it is frequently possible to sample large numbers of individuals even when the number of breeding individuals is low. Often, juveniles are sampled from populations with high juvenile mortality, and the number of breeding adults may be orders of magnitude lower than the number of juveniles. Thus, our sampling scheme is representative of those found in the literature (Waples 1990; Waples and Teel 1990; Hedgecocket al. 1992; Husband and Barrett 1992a,b; Jordanet al. 1992; Lessioset al. 1994; Hedricket al. 1995; Burczyk 1996; Jorde and Ryman 1996; Richards and Leberg 1996; Miller and Kapuscinski 1997; Scribneret al. ...
LABType HD identifies over 90% of common allele pairs without any ambiguities. The use of over 300 probes allows users to eliminate a significant number of rare alleles and provides a higher resolution typing, distinguishing among known alleles. Since LABType HD uses the same platform, protocol and analysis software as other LABType products, crossover training is minimal. There is also no need to upgrade or purchase new instrumentation.. ...
Genotype is a combination of alleles (gene variants) borne by a specific individual in his cells (cell - see Cells). In diploid organisms, each individual has a pair of alleles from each gene in his cells, where this can be a pair of identical alleles (homozygote) or a pair of different alleles (heterozygote).
In addition, the sequencing of pooled samples should be dealt with to ensure detection of reduced allele frequency mutations.Our transcriptome

According to Dr. Crespi and Dr. Badcock (thrilling surname!), epigenetic gene silencing of the fathers versus the mothers genes may tilt a person more toward autism or more toward schizophrenia (NYTs article, Nature essay). Epigenetics is the term that describes changes to the genome that change which genes are expressed but do not change the genome itself. In general, methylation, the adding of a CH3 group to the 5 carbon of the nucleotide cytosine in a promoter, silences the expression of a gene, while demethylation or acetylation (tagging with a -CoCH3 group) increases expression. When a section of a genome is silenced depending on a parents gender, that is called imprinting. As we all carry two alleles (one variant of a specific gene) total, one from each parent, when our sperm or eggs are being made only one of each of our alleles gets put into the sperm or egg. With a few genes, a paternal allele in an egg should be silenced, and a maternal allele in a sperm should be silenced (with ...

I keep saying it because to me it is intuitively obvious and the objections to it make no sense to me, they seem to me to reflect a belief in the ToE and nothing much else. Seems to me it depends on HOW common the alleles that "define a species" were in the original population whether their frequencies will remain the same when the subpopulation is first formed. Of course the alleles that define the main Species, say Cats or Dogs or Bears or Gerbils will remain the same, if those major characteristics are governed by alleles at all, but those for the particular characteristics of the first population are very likely to change, especially in a population that has fairly high genetic diversity. The first population could be characterized by pointy ears, long noses, short tails, brown coat with black markings, but the alleles will nevertheless be present in that population for variations on all those traits, floppy ears or round ears or even pointier ears, short broad noses or longer noses, broad ...
