Trisomy 18

Overview

3

Both meiosis and mitosis convert 4n content of DNA to 2n content how are these events different?

 

In mitosis the sister chromatids are identical when the 2 n state is reached

In meiosis the sister chromatids are identical when the 2n state is reached 

The events are not different 

 

 

(But the 2n content in mitosis are from both parents e.g. not identical)

35

 

 

 

Ploidy

36

X - Chromosome

37

If too many expressed genes often lead to miscarriage, why do xxx females come to term, often without any symptoms?

There are very few genes on the x chromosome

Different parts of each x chromosome are expressed

Only one x chromosome is expressed 

One x chromosome is inactivated so the individuals are similar to xx women

 

 

 

Only one x chromosome is expressed (Lyon hypothesis) — they get inactivated as barr bodies. 

38

 

 

 

What brings about Polyploidy?

What brings about aneuploidy?

40

Given the following karyotype: 47,XY, +19/46, XY

 

The patient is a female with down’s syndrome

The patient has Down’s syndrome

Non-dsjunction event occurred in meiosis 

Non-Disjunction event occurred in mitosis 

The patient inherited an extra chromosome from their mother

 

 

Non-Disjunction event occurred in mitosis (Mocaism is usually due to a non-disjunction in mitosis late in development) 

 

Non-dsjunction event occurred in meiosis  (All of the cells would show trisomy)

41

 

 

 

Draw out non-disjunction in the first and second meiotic division

42

 

 

 

Non-disjunction occurs more often in

 

 

 

Non-disjunction occurs more often in the eggs rather than the sperm.

How would you prevent this from happening again?

 

 

The only things she can do to prevent this from reoccurring. Get cytogenetic to look to see if there is a trisomy if not 1% chance of re-occuring. If so there’s a 50% chance of reoccurring.
