Craniofacial complex specificities in five men with sex reversal syndrome

Clinical Oral Investigations

Abstract

In order to clarify the role of sex chromosome constitution in craniofacial growth control, we compared craniofacial morphology of men with sex reversal syndrome (46, XX) with the morphology of normal men, Klinefelter's syndrome and normal women, using cephalometric measurements. Due to physical resemblance between men with 46, XX karyotype and men with 47, XXY karyotype, cephalometric analysis comprised parametres which had already been found to be specific for Klinefelter's syndrome, i.e. cranial base length and flexion, maxillary and mandibular base length, jaw position in relation to cranial base and sagittal jaw relationship. Linear measurements showed reduction of about 10% in maxillary base length in 46, XX men in relation to normal men. Mandibular base in men with sex reversal syndrome was also shortened for about 10% in relation to both normal men and Klinefelter's syndrome. Cranial base flexion in men with Klinefelter's syndrome and in men with sex reversal syndrome showed similarity. The basal angle was found to be more acute, for about 4 degrees , in comparison to individuals with normal karyotype. Unlike in men with Klinefelter's syndrome, mandibular and maxillary prognathism were not registered in men with sex rev...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
