triploid karyotype

  • A diploid/triploid karyotype is an uncommon but important cause of true hermaphroditism and ambiguous genitalia. (


  • 3 Key Terms Karyotypes The number and visual appearance of the chromosomes in the cell nuclei of an organism or species Trisomy A condition in which a diploid organism has one more chromosome than usual. (
  • A triploid individual, for instance, has an abnormal combination of sex chromosomes (XXX, XXY or XYY). (


  • He had many characteristics of a chromosomal abnormality, such as 47,XYY syndrome. (
  • A complete mole is a result of fertilization of an empty ovum by a single sperm that duplicates or simultaneous fertilization with two sperms, resulting in a 46XX or 46XY karyotype with all chromosomal material derived from paternal genome. (
  • Confirmation in all cases is by cytogenetic testing (karyotyping, fluorescent in situ hybridization [FISH] analysis, and/or chromosomal microarray analysis [CMA]) of samples obtained by amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling. (


  • The disorder - caused by an extra copy of the male Y chromosome - has been linked to aggressive and anti-social behavior, although many studies have failed to show any relationship between criminality and the XYY karyotype. (


  • Objective To investigate the criminal pattern in men between 15 and 70 years of age diagnosed with 47,XXY (Klinefelter's syndrome (KS)) or 47,XYY compared to the general population. (
  • Karyotype (chromosome morphology) showing a female with Down syndrome. (


  • To accomplish this, we performed a transcriptome analysis in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of 10 non-mosaic KS patients, 10 aged-matched healthy men and 10 aged-matched healthy female controls with normal karyotype. (


  • Issues arise in homologous pair 23 (X or Y) Can be fatal Although many people have these karyotypes and are alive and well. (


  • Participants All men diagnosed with KS (N=934) or 47,XYY (N=161) at risk and their age- and calendar-time-matched controls (N=88 979 and 15 356, respectively). (
  • Adjusting for socioeconomic variables (education, fatherhood, retirement and cohabitation) reduced the total HR for both KS and 47,XYY to levels similar to controls, while some specific crime types (sexual abuse, arson, etc) remained increased. (


  • To investigate crime rates of men with an extra sex chromosome (47,XXY and 47,XYY). (
