Part 3: Cytogenetics Single-Gene Disorders Basic Definitions 46 Chromosomes 22 pairs of autosomes

(autosomal chromosomes) 1 pair of Sex chromosome The two chromosomes in each diploid pair are said to be homologs, or homologous chromosomes.

X and Y chromosomes, have some homologous regions but the majority of genes are different. No. of chromosomes Gametes (ova and sperms) are haploid, have one copy of each type of chromosome (122, X or Y). Somatic cells (cells other than gametes) are diploid, having two copies of each type of autosome (122) and

either XX or XY Gene. Physically a gene consists of a sequence of DNA that encodes a specific protein. Locus. The physical location of a gene on a chromosome is termed a locus. Alleles. Variation (mutation) in the DNA sequence of a gene produces a new allele at that locus. Many genes have multiple alleles.

Polymorphism. When a specific site on a chromosome has multiple alleles in the population, it is said to be polymorphic (many forms). Allele for brown eye color Locus for eye color gene

Homologus pair of chromosomes Allele for blue eye color Homozygous vs. Heterozygous alleles Homozygous if the individual has the same allele on both homologous chromosomes at that locus. Heterozygous if the individual has different alleles on

the two homologous chromosomes at that locus. Hemizygous if the individual has one allele on one of the two homologs. Genotype vs. Phenotype The genotype is the specific DNA sequence at a locus The phenotype is generally understood as the expression of the genotype in terms of observable

characteristics Mutations The Recurrence Risk The recurrence risk is the probability that the offspring of a couple will express a genetic disease.

Caused by alterations in only one copy of a gene pair. This mean the condition occurs in the heterozygous state despite the presence of an intact copy of the relevant gene. AD genes are located on the autosomal chromosomes, so males and females are equally affected. Suppose that A is a dominant allele that cause a disease

And a is a recessive allele that is normal Homozygous AA , aa Heterozygous Aa

AA and Aa has disease aa is normal aa Aa Normal

Diseased Aa A Diseased (Hetrozygous) a

Achondroplasia (Dwarfism) Autosomal Dominant Pedigree AA Aa aa aa

AA Aa aa Familial hypercholesterolemia Huntington disease Neurofibromatosis type I

Marfan syndrome Achondroplasia Spherocytosis Neurofibromatosis type I Autosomal Recessive Inheritance AR alleles are clinically expressed only in the homozygous state.

The offspring must inherit one copy of the disease causing allele from each parent. Suppose that a is the disease allele and it is recessive.

So the normal allele is the dominant (A) Homozygous AA , aa Heterozygous Aa AA no disease aa has the disease Aa has no disease (but he/she is a carrier for the

abnormal gene), Heterozygous carrier Aa A Heterozygous carrier a
