Risk for short arm 10 trisomy. A segregation analysis of eleven families with different translocations

Human Genetics
J Stene, S Stengel-Rutkowski


A segregation analysis has been carried out for 11 families with trisomy 10p caused by familial translocations involving a segment of the short arm of chromosome 10. The theoretical basis for the analysis is considered in some detail. No differences were found between the segregation pattern in the offspring of carrier mothers and that of carrier fathers. There was a high risk for offspring with trisomy 10p (22%). A phenotypically normal descendant also has a high risk of becoming a balanced translocation carrier (71%). This result does not deviate significantly from the theoretical value of 50%.

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.

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.

Torsion Dystonia

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
