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). Patients ...

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.

A dog with two copies of the recessive gene variant is affected, they will express the phenotype and will pass a copy of the gene variant onto their offspring 100% of the time. A dog with one copy of the recessive gene variant is a carrier, they do not express the phenotype themselves, however they are will pass the gene variant onto their offspring 50% of the time. A dog that has does not have any copies of the recessive gene variant is clear, and will never produce affected offspring ...
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 ...
Colorblindness in humans is x-linked recessive trait. Question: One out of every 12 human males has red green colorblindness. How common is it among human females. Can you show me how to determine its prevalence among females.
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 ...
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 ...

I looked into some stories and diaries of old Chilean families. And it is so, that in one, whose surname I will not disclose, that tells how a hose was devoured by an immense toad. I knew that the caudiverbera frog has a very strange gene that expresses itself once every ten thousand millions to produce a frog of one meter [3.3 ft.] [long] It is a recessive gene. I knew then that another recessive gene produced yet an even bigger frog when it is phenotypically expressed. I believe that this solved the case of the vilú the immense killer toad of the great irrigation channels and lagoons. [5 ...
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. In order to avoid creating offspring with PRA, dogs belonging to high-risk breeds should undergo genetic testing prior to breeding. This testing will determine whether one or both parents are a carrier of ...
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 ...

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 ...

From this data we can conclude for sure if a parent is homozygous recessive, but not the difference between homozygous dominant and heterozygous. This is because you only need one dominant pairing for a person to have that trait, so, the person could show the trait and be Rr or RR, you simply dont know until you have kids, of which if one doesnt show the trait, you know you are Rr. This is not the case for my family, because when my parents had a trait, me and my sister would both have the trait, thus determining that we cant tell whether my parents are Rr or RR ...

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.. ...
