Haploid embryonic stem cells (ESCs) have recently been derived from mouse parthenogenetic embryos. These cells maintain key properties of mouse ESCs and might overcome existing limitations in developmental genetic approaches in mice. Haploid ESCs have been established through the activation of unfertilized oocytes from a variety of mouse strains and maintain a wide developmental potential in culture and in chimeric mice. Notably, parthenogenetic haploid ESCs possess robust germline competence enabling the production of transgenic mouse strains from genetically modified haploid ESCs. Contribution to the embryo correlates with an efficient gain of a diploid karyotype. We have also observed that differentiation in culture results in diploidization, which likely is the result of endoreduplication and not cell fusion. In contrast to differentiation into embryonic cell types a haploid karyotype is maintained under certain conditions during forced differentiation to extraembryonic cell fates. ...

Haploidy is a useful feature for the study of gene function because disruption of one allele in haploid cells, which contain only a single set of chromosomes, can cause loss-of-function phenotypes. Recent success in generating haploid embryonic stem (ES) cells from several mammalian species, including human, provides a new platform for simple genetic manipulation of the mammalian genome. The genome-editing potential of the CRISPR/Cas system is enhanced by the use of haploid ES cells. For example, CRISPR/Cas has been used for high-efficiency generation of multiple knockouts and knockins in haploid ES cells, with potential application in genome-wide screening ...

Chinese researchers produced healthy mice with two mothers that went on to have normal offspring of their own.. The study published on Thursday in the journal Cell Stem Cell used stem cells and targeted gene editing to render same sex reproduction.. "We tried to find out whether more normal mice with two female parents, or even mice with two male parents, could be produced using haploid embryonic stem cells with gene deletions," said the papers co-senior author Zhou Qi, professor of Institute of Zoology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.. Mice from two dads were also born but only survived for a couple of days, according to the study.. Some reptiles, amphibians, and fish can reproduce with one parent of the same sex, but it is challenging for mammals to do the same even with the help of fertilization technology.. In mammals, certain maternal or paternal genes are shut off during germline development by a mechanism called genomic imprinting, so that offsprings that dont receive genetic ...

Haploid callus cultures of selected races of Lycopersicon (tomato) species can be obtained from anther culture. This is a further demonstration of a proposed general method of haploid culture developed with Arabidopsis thaliana. Differentiation of haploid callus of Lycopersicon esculentum can be controlled both in the dark and the light by hormones added to defined minimal media. Development to plantlets is achieved only in the light. Callus cells can be induced to develop into seedless pseudo-fruits. Chromosome counts on callus cells or root-tip cells establishes haploidy (n=12). Haploidy can be maintained in culture on defined minimal media for at least one year.

The comparison in the table below is only meant to give approximate indications of radioresistance for different species and should be taken with great caution. There are generally big differences in radioresistance for one species among experiments, due to the way radiation affects living tissues and to different experimental conditions. We should for example consider that because radiation impedes cell division, immature organisms are less resistant to radiations than adults, and adults are sterilized at doses much lower than that necessary to kill them. For example, for the insect parasitoid Habrobracon hebetor, the LD50 for haploid embryo during cleavage (1-3 hours of age) is 200 R, but about 4 hours later it is of 7,000 R (for X-ray intensity of 110 R/minute), and haploid (= male) embryos are more resistant than diploid (= female) embryos.[8] The mortality of adults H. hebetor exposed to a dose of 180,250 R is the same to this of a non-irradiated control group (food was not provided to ...

Principal Scientist, Reproduction Biology, Syngenta. Genome editing using CRISPR-Cas9 works efficiently in plant cells, but delivery of genome editing machinery into the vast majority of crop varieties is not possible using established methods. We co-opted the aberrant reproductive process of haploid induction (HI) to induce edits in nascent seeds of diverse monocot and dicot species. Our method, named "HI-Edit", enables direct genomic modification of commercial crop varieties. HI-edit was tested in field and sweet corn using a native haploid inducer line, and extended to dicots using an engineered CENH3 HI system. We also recovered edited wheat embryos using Cas9 delivered by maize pollen. Our data indicate that a transient hybrid state precedes uniparental chromosome elimination in maize HI. Edited haploid plants lack both the haploid inducer parental DNA and the editing machinery. Therefore, edited plants could be used in trait testing and directly integrated into commercial variety ...
A collection of haploid Saccharomyces cerevisiae deletion strains--both MAT a and alpha--was screened for mutants that exhibit low dye binding (ldb) phenotype. This phenotype has previously been associated with reduced incorporation of mannosyl phosphate groups into the mannoprotein-linked oligosaccharides. We identified 199 nonessential genes whose deletion resulted in a detectable ldb phenotype. They fell into diverse functional categories, including those involved in protein glycosylation, vacuolar function, intracellular transport, cytoskeleton organization, transcription, signal transduction, among others. The study extends the number of known genes that affect mannosyl phosphorylation of mannoprotein-linked oligosaccharides, and establishes a link with other relevant pathways in the cell, especially vacuolar function. We have assigned an LDB name to four uncharacterized ORFs identified in this study: YCL005W, LDB16; YDL146W, LDB17; YLL049W, LDB18; and YOR322C, LDB19 ...

Background: Aneuploidy, a karyotype deviating from multiples of a haploid chromosome set, affects the physiology of eukaryotes. In humans, aneuploidy is linked to pathological defects such as developmental abnormalities, mental retardation or cancer, but the underlying mechanisms remain elusive. There are many different types and origins of aneuploidy, but whether there is a uniform cellular response to aneuploidy in human cells has not been addressed so far. Results: Here we evaluate the transcription profiles of eleven trisomic and tetrasomic cell lines and two cell lines with complex aneuploid karyotypes. We identify a characteristic aneuploidy response pattern defined by upregulation of genes linked to endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus and lysosomes, and downregulation of DNA replication, transcription as well as ribosomes. Strikingly, complex aneuploidy elicits the same transcriptional changes as trisomy. To uncover the triggers of the response, we compared the profiles with ...
The egg cell contributes most of the organelles, or organs within a cell, that are needed by the zygote. The sperm only provides its centrioles -- a structure that pulls dividing cells apart -- and a haploid, or half, nucleus. This means that the rest of organelles -- the machinery that makes cells tick -- necessary for the zygotes survival come from the egg. These include the mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, and smaller vesicles. Additionally, the egg contributes its own haploid nucleus, which will fuse with the sperms haploid nucleus to give a diploid, or full, nucleus that contains all of the DNA needed for growth into a normal embryo.. ...
It is well documented that among subgroups of B-ALL, the genetic profile of the leukemic blasts has significant impact on prognosis and stratification for therapy. Recent studies have documented the power of microarrays to screen genome-wide for copy number aberrations (CNAs) and regions of copy number neutral loss of heterozygosity (CNLOH) that are not detectable by G-banding or FISH. Findings identified by array include the co-occurrence of low and high risk abnormalities not previously reported to coexist within a clone, novel regions of chromosomal amplification, clones characterized by numerous whole chromosome LOH that do not meet criteria for doubling of a near-haploid, and characterization of array profiles associated with IKZF1 deletion. This group uses MSI resources that allow them to visualize the array findings using Cirocs, which they have installed on MSI computer space. A bibliography of this groups publications is attached..

I see that your organism is tetraploid, but everything I know about Fst relates to diploid organisms. I regret I really dont know how different ploidy affects Fst measurements, but anyway you are treating raw NGS data as if it was a direct method, and it isnt. if you have a pool of samples some may have been enriched more than others, and for that reason you cant take the allele counts as independent values. the only way I know to work with NGS and Fst calculation is to use a diploid organism (human in our case), to sequence individual samples, and treat the results as if they were raw genotyping results. if there is a way of using NGS pooled samples data for real and trustworthy population statistics that are able to deal with the enrichment bias, Im sorry Im not aware of it.. regarding the NGS bias mentioned in your questions comments, its not really a problem of NGS but of any methodology based on PCR, which may produce an imbalanced amplification. this erroneous amplification can ...

Gametes are reproductive cells that unite at fertilization to form a new cell called a zygote. Gametes are haploid cells formed by meiosis.
A gonad, sex gland, or reproductive gland[1] is a mixed gland that produces the gametes (sex cells) and sex hormones of an organism. In the female of the species the reproductive cells are the egg cells, and in the male the reproductive cells are the sperm.[2] The male gonad, the testicle, produces sperm in the form of spermatozoa. The female gonad, the ovary, produces egg cells. Both of these gametes are haploid cells. ...

Nutrient shortage triggers sexual reproduction. Haploid cells conjugate (diploid stage) and then perform meiosis giving four sexual haploid spores (sporulation). Traditional theory states that DNA recombination during meiosis helps withstand stress conditions by producing new gene combinations that probabilistacally increase the ability to cope with natural selection. However a more recent line of thinking suggests that meiosis might have evolved as a molecular mechanism to repair damage caused to DNA by high levels of environmental stress ...
The Pith: In this post I examine how looking at genomic data can clarify exactly how closely related siblings really are, instead of just assuming that theyre about 50% similar. I contrast this randomness among siblings to the hard & fast deterministic nature of of parent-child inheritance. Additionally, I detail how the idealized spare concepts of genetics from 100 years ago are modified by what we now know about how genes are physically organized, and, reorganized. Finally, I explain how this clarification allows us to potentially understand with greater precision the nature of inheritance of complex traits which vary within families, and across the whole population.. Humans are diploid organisms. We have two copies of each gene, inherited from each parent (the exception here is for males, who have only one X chromosome inherited from the mother, and lack many compensatory genes on the Y chromosome inherited from the father). Our own parents have two copies of each gene, one inherited from ...

Cytogenetic analysis was performed for some of the resulting zygotes. The progress to ...
In gametic meiosis, instead of immediately dividing meiotically to produce haploid cells, the zygote divides mitotically to produce a multicellular diploid individual or a group of more unicellular diploid cells. Cells from the diploid individuals then undergo meiosis to produce haploid cells or gametes. Haploid cells may divide to form more haploid cells, as in many yeasts, but the haploid phase is not the predominant life cycle phase. In most diplonts, mitosis occurs only in the diploid phase, i.e. gametes usually form quickly and fuse to produce diploid zygotes. In the whole cycle, gametes are usually the only haploid cells, and mitosis usually occurs only in the diploid phase. The diploid multicellular individual is a diplont, hence a gametic meiosis is also called a diplontic life cycle. Diplonts are: ...

Rhynchosporium secalis can overcome a single resistance gene of barley in a relatively short period of time. Novel genes and quantitative trait locis (QTLs) are therefore vital to control scald in barley. A population of 220 double haploid lines was developed from a cross of Vlamingh and WABAR2147, where Vlamingh showed adult plant resistance (APR) and WABAR2147 showed seedling resistance to a group of isolates. The population was tested for APR to scald under natural infection in two consecutive seasons in addition to a seedling screen with three isolates. One single gene was mapped to chromosome 6H based on the seedling test, and two QTLs (QSc.VlWa.4H and QSc.VlWa.6H) were mapped to chromosomes 4H and 6H based on APR. Epistatic interaction was observed between the two QTLs, and environment/QTL interaction was only observed for QSc.VlWa.6H which co-segregated with the seedling resistance gene and contributed to basal resistance against scald during whole growth stages. QSc.VlWa.4H explained ...
Throughout the Metazoa sperm are evolutionarily labile and diverge rapidly, exhibiting a bewildering array of morphological specializations (reviewed by Pitnick et al. 2009a). Although understanding of the adaptive significance of variation in sperm form is meager, post-copulatory sexual selection, occurring through competition to fertilize ova, is widely regarded as the primary agent for sperm diversification (reviewed by Pitnick et al. 2009b; Pizzari & Parker 2009). Recent theoretical treatments of sperm adaptation, with a focus on sperm conjugation and heteromorphism, have postulated roles of kin selection and multi-level selection (Immler 2008; Pizzari & Foster 2008; Pizzari & Parker 2009). Sperm conjugation occurs when two or more sperm physically unite to enhance motility and/or transport through the female reproductive tract, with sperm typically disassociating from one another only after reaching the site of sperm storage or fertilization (reviewed by Immler 2008; Pitnick et al. 2009a). ...
HO nuclease is a site-specific double-strand endonuclease present in haploid Saccharomyces cerevisiae undergoing mating type interconversion. HO nuclease initiates mating type interconversion by making a double-strand break within the MAT locus. To define the recognition site for the enzyme in vitro, we have constructed a number of point mutations and deletions within or adjacent to the HO recognition site. Digestion of these substrates with HO in vitro reveals that the minimal recognition site is 18 base pairs long, although several shorter substrates and substrates containing point mutations are cleaved at low levels in vitro. A 24-base-pair HO recognition site stimulates homologous recombination when present in a region unrelated to MAT. Recombinants arise from both gene conversion and crossover events. The identification of the HO recognition site provides a way of introducing a defined initiation site for recombination.. ...
Meiosis is a special type of cell division. Unlike mitosis, the way normal body cells divide, meiosis results in cells that only have half the usual number of chromosomes, one from each pair. For that reason, meiosis is often called reduction division. In the long run, meiosis increases genetic variation, in a way which will be explained later. Sexual reproduction takes place when a sperm fertilizes an egg. The eggs and sperm are special cells called gametes, or sex cells. Gametes are haploid; they have only half the number of chromosomes as a normal body cell (called a somatic cell). Fertilization restores the chromosomes in body cells to the diploid number. The basic number of chromosomes in the body cells of a species is called the somatic number and is labelled 2n. In humans 2n = 46: we have 46 chromosomes. In the sex cells the chromosome number is n (humans: n = 23).[1] So, in normal diploid organisms, chromosomes are present in two copies, one from each parent (23x2=46). The only exception ...
To elucidate the cytotaxonomic relationships of endemic Baicalian asellides, the mitotic and meiotic chromosome configurations of Baicalasellus angarensis (Isopoda) were investigated. It was shown that the haploid chromosome number of B. angareresis is: n = 8; sex chromosomes have not been found. The karyotype of B. angarensis was found to be strikingly similar to the karyotype of Asellus aquaticus. It differs from the latter only by the morphology of a single chromosome pair and the number of chiasmata in metaphase 1. On the other hand, it differs markedly from the Japanese Asellus hilgendorfi. Possible implications of this finding on the current view of the origin of Baicalian isopods are discussed.

Chromosome X has a pseudo-autosomal region (PAR) which can be imputed for males and females together. Imputing the PAR on chromosome X is same as usual imputation, since both males and females are diploids at these sites. However, the non pseudo-autosomal region (non-PAR) needs to be imputed for males and females separately, as males are haploids while females are diploids. Of course, the PAR and non-PAR regions need to be imputed separately. Following should be the steps involved in imputing chromosome X. ...

An elegant proof of the Hardy-Weinberg ratio can be given in terms of gametes.. Diploid organisms produce haploid gametes. We could imagine that the haploid gametes are all released into the sea, where they combine at random to form the next generation. This is called random union of gametes. In the gamete pool A gametes will have frequency p and a gametes frequency q . Because they are combining at random, an a gamete will meet an A gamete with chance p and an a gamete with chance q. From the a gametes, Aa zygotes will therefore be produced with frequency pq and aa gametes with frequency q .. A similar argument applies for the A gametes (which have frequency p ): they combine with a gametes with chance q, to produce Aa zygotes (frequency pq ) and A gametes with chance p to form AA zygotes (frequency p² ). If we now add up the frequencies of the genotypes from the two types of gamete, the Hardy-Weinberg genotype frequencies emerge.. Figure: Hardy-Weinberg proportions of genotypes AA, Aa and ...

We are currently working through the specification for an IGCSE in Biology. The following is copied straight from that specification and is all the information we need to know about meiosis:. Understand that division of a cell by meiosis produces four cells, each with half the number of chromosomes, and that this results in the formation of genetically different haploid gametes.. Know that in human cells the diploid number of chromosomes is 46 and the haploid number is 23. The specification mentions the terms diploid and haploid. Ploidy refers to the number of chromosomes in a cell. Cells with two sets of chromosomes are refered to as diploid cells and cells with only one set of chromosomes are called haploid cells.. Meiosis is a form of cell division which forms gamete cells, however in its case the daughter cells are not identical either to each other or to their parent cells. Instead of containing the parental diploid number of chromosomes, the four daughter cells contain a haploid (or half) ...
