Low incidence or lack of study”. Pseudohermaphroditism 5-alpha reductase deficiency. We report here the case of a karyotypically normal female affected with DMD as a result of homozygosity for a deletion of exon 50 of the dystrophin gene.

Bloom syndrome with Prader-Willi syndrome. Most occurrences of UPD result in no phenotypical anomalies. Here, amazingly, UPD 13 has taken place over two generations, once of paternal and once maternal origin, while the other parental 13 has not made its way in the embryonic cells!

Once in print and published, the idea slept in the medical literature for some years because, at the time of the publication, the means to trace the parental origin of a chromosome were still limited, awaiting the analyses of DNA polymorphisms as schematically shown here. My thanks go to Mr. Van den Berg Loonen. But, to bring that up, let me first refer to the well know and significant observation of a tiny 15q11q13 deletion in the Prader-Willi syndrome, by David Ledbetter and colleagues in Skewed X inactivation in a female MZ twin results in Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

This includes chromosomes 2, 5—11, 13—16, 21 and Some of these have indeed been observed more than once. Carrier detection and prenatal diagnosis in Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy families, using dinucleotide repeat polymorphisms.

Identification of human chromosomes by DNA-binding fluorescent agents. This summary slide attempts to compile the information developed in this presentation.


It will be interesting to see which others will be detected in the forthcoming years to finally assume that those never seen are, may-be, lethal. We all uniparentzles the prestigious names of the Scientists listed here, wich include two illustrious pionneers of this Country, Marco Fraccaro and Paul Polani.

It did take wonderful eyes disomiad detect such a small, albeit most important cytogenetics detail! And this is precisely the mechanism which helped these investigators to uncover the first thoroughly analyzed and described case of UPD.

An atypical case of fragile X syndrome caused by a deletion that includes the FMR1 gene. Many more are documented in the 5 years from 91 to 95 and still quite a few are observed in the last 7 years till now, to the best of my knowledge. Phosphoglycerate kinase polymorphism in kangaroos provides further evidence for paternal X inactivation.

Cystic fibrosis and Kartagener syndrome.

This slide shows what proportion of some well defined syndromes might be caused by a given uniparental pair proven responsible for disrupting the normal imprinting process.

Of course, UPD refers to the accidental presence of a chromosome pair or a chomosome segment derived uniarentales only one parent in a diploid individual. Interestingly enough the journal Science rejected this report, apparently for uniparenntales a situation too exceptional for a broad readership; and, while accepted for publication by the American Journal of Human Genetic, the accompanying editorial almost echoed the very reasons why the other major publications had turned down the article.

At this junction, in guise of more systematic approach, we can review, as shown here, the 47 possibilities of UPD for wholesale chromosomes, namely 22 paternal and 22 maternal pairs for the autosomes as well as 3 more pairs for the sex chromosomes, one maternal XX and two paternal ones, namely XX or XY.

If that were to happen what might be the occasionnal consequences of deriving one chromosome from one parent only? Uniparental disomy as a mechanism for human genetic disease.


Uniparental disomy of the entire X chromosome in a female with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

On ths slide, precisely, a pattern of homologous centric fusion for chromosome 22 is found in a woman who aborts ten times in a dosomias before producing a normal female offspring who, in turn, in due time will abort seven times.

Uniparental disomy UPD occurs when a person receives two copies of a chromosomeor of part of a chromosome, from one parent and no copy from the other parent. This slide shows a source to find more information from a book uniparejtales witn my friend and Colleague Stylianos Emmanuel Antonarakis which was published in by Liss-Wiley in New York. Von Eggling et al. American Journal of Medical Genetics 6: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Both these slides show the pace at which these uniparental pairs were uncovered since the first ones were identified.

Some were discovered because of reduction to homozygosity causing recesive traits, while others involved imprinted domains and disrupted them.
