Chromosome 12

Chromosome 12

deletion of the proximal short arm of chromosome 12 is rare and occurs de novo. Microcephaly, narrow forehead, pointed nose and micrognathia are present. Mental and growth retardation are significant but inner organ malformations are generally not present. 12p trisomy nearly always results from a familial translocation. The phenotype includes turricephaly with flat apex, high bulging forehead, flat rectangular face, pronounced hypertelorism, a very short nose with a broad and poorly defined bridge, a short neck with cutaneous folds, ear abnormalities, hypotonia, severe growth and mental retardation and signs of precocious aging in adolescents. Tetrasomy 12p is consistent with pallister-killian syndrome. The critical region appears to be confined to 12p11.2.

12q2 trisomy is uncommon and results most frequently from malsegregation of a parental translocation. The patients show a relatively large head with frontal bossing, rectangular face with chubby cheeks and short limbs, especially in the proximal segment. Mental retardation is severe and 62b growth retardation variable. Among others, genes for lactate dehydrogenase B, phenylalanine hydroxylase and haemolytic anaemia due to glyceraldehyde -3-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency are assigned to chromosome 12.

... (C, N) is 70 pm and smaller. That's 20-times less. However, you may be interested in the new one-molecule sequencing methods. And separation of chromosomes by dissection by laser is also nothing new. This is not a problem again. After scanning slices should not be necessary. http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/login.jsp?tp=&arnumber=5292236&url=http%3A%2F%2Fieeexplore.ieee.org%2Fiel5%2F5238710%2F5292053%2F05292236.pdf%3Farnumber%3D5292236 ...

Totipotent Stem Cell From Molecular Components

... I start with the cell membrane or the nucleus and nucleolus(both are very important)? Q2 The pace of DNA replication is 8 2/3 hours for every chromosome and 2097152 of each chromosome in 1 week. Is that just an estimate because I know that it is 8 2/3 hours per replication origin. Q3 Once ...

A question regarding PCR

probably, your microsatellite is part of the chromosome, right? So there will be much more than 7 bp and it will be on both sides. Yes, the polymerase will amplify the chain until the conditions change (i.e. end of amplification step) or until ...
