Patient Handouts Summary Genes are the building blocks of heredity. They are passed from parent to child. They hold DNA, the instructions for making proteins.
A very small subset of cases of classical HL may derive from T cells. Epidemiology A distinguishing feature with non-Hodgkin's lymphomas NHLs is its relative frequency in patients under 20 years.
Most classical HL can be classified as nodular sclerotic NS or mixed cellularity MS subtypes; two uncommon subtypes, lymphocyte-rich classical and lymphocyte depletionpresent less typical pictures and examples of the former have sometimes been reclassified as low-grade B-cell NHLs.
In very rare instances, mutations have been found in the tumor suppressor genes CD95 and TP Four or six cases analysed were found to harbor gains of MDM2.
Few genetic lesions are known for LP cells of lymphocyte predominant HL: However, as most mutations are in the 5' untranslated regions of the genes, it is unclear whether or which fractions of these mutations have a pathogenetic relevance.
Cytogenetics Cytogenetics Morphological The neoplastic cells in typical HL lymph nodes comprise mononuclear Hodgkin and multilobate, binucleate or multinucleate Reed-Sternberg cells, and that these are clonal with modal chromosome numbers varying from case to case is indicated from direct chromosome analysis and DNA measurements and directly shown by the detection of clonal immunoglobulin V gene rearrangements in isolated HRS cells.
The modes are about twice as frequently in the triploid-tetraploid particularly chromosomes as neardiploid region; the clonal aneuploidy has been demonstrated by simultaneous fluorescence immunophenotyping and interphase chromosomal analysis to occur in the Hodgkin and Reed-Sternberg cells. The multinucleated Reed-Sternberg cells most likely derive from mononucleated Hodgkin cells through a process similar to endomitosis, i.Genetic Disorders • Cytogenetic Disorders – Gross chromosomal abnormalities • Single-Gene Disorders – With classical (Mendelian) inheritance Egg and sperm nuclei contain the same genetic information, but neither two eggs nor two sperms can support embryonic development.
Ensuing chapters cover parents with a chromosomal abnormality, variants, normal parents with a chromosomally abnormal child, including disorders of sex development and chromosome instability syndromes, disorders associated with aberrant genomic imprinting, reproductive failure, prenatal diagnosis, including pre-implantation genetic diagnosis.
Chromosome 3, Trisomy 3q2 is a rare chromosomal disorder in which a portion of the 3rd chromosome appears three times (trisomy) rather than twice in cells of the body.
Associated symptoms and findings may be variable, depending upon the specific length and location of the duplicated (trisomic) portion of chromosome 3.
Chromosomal disorders are caused by the duplication, deletion or deformation of a chromosome among the standard 23 pairs of chromosomes. In most cases of Down Syndrome, an extra copy of chromosome 21 is present in the cells. Chromosomal abnormalities refers to the change in the structure or sequence of a chromosome or variation in the number of chromosomes in an organism (extra or missing). Some examples are aneuploidy and polyploidy etc. In descriptions of chromosomes and chromosome abnormalities, some words may be unfamiliar. The meanings of many of these words may be found in the Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms. A few additional terms are listed in the glossary below.
Choose a genetic disorder that can be inherited from a parent. Write a to word paper on the genetic disorder.
Include the following in your paper: Summarize the Chromosomal Theory of Inheritance and how chromosomal abnormalities can lead to genetic disorders. In descriptions of chromosomes and chromosome abnormalities, some words may be unfamiliar.
The meanings of many of these words may be found in the Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms. A few additional terms are listed in the glossary below. Cytogenic Testing There are many disorders that can be diagnosed by examining a person's whole chromosome. Chromosome abnormalities constitute a major category of medical genetic disorders.
