Human triploidy: relationship between parental origin of the additional haploid complement and development of partial hydatidiform mole

Annals of Human Genetics
P A JacobsC C Wilson


One hundred and six triploids were ascertained during a study of 1500 consecutive spontaneous abortions. The mechanism of origin of the additional haploid complement was investigated by comparing parental and foetal cytogenetic heteromorphisms and a histopathological examination of each triploid was done in a subsequent blind study. The mechanism of origin of the additional haploid complement was found to be highly correlated with the development of partial hydatidiform mole and with gestational age. All 51 paternally derived triploids in which a pathologic diagnosis could be made were partial moles, whereas only 3 of 15 maternally derived triploids on which a diagnosis could be made were molar. The mean gestational age of the paternally derived triploids was 122 days while that of the maternally derived triploids was only 74 days. It was suggested that the development of partial mole was primarily associated with the presence of two paternal haploid chromosome complements, the association with relatively long gestational ages being a secondary one consequent upon retention of the molar placentae for many weeks after foetal demise.

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.

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.
