Dressing up for a cause
The genetic condition affects about one in 2000 births and it can result in abnormalities which is caused by the deletion of the 22nd chromosome. Saturday's competition raised about $2200 and was described as "intense" by organiser Peita Bates. RELATED ...

Chromosome 7 flaws alter chemical tags throughout genome
The gain or loss of DNA within this mutational hotspot on chromosome 7, called 7q11.23, leads to two different syndromes, both of which share features with autism. Deletions in the region cause Williams syndrome, a condition characterized by ...

DNA: Our ancient ancestors had lots more
That extra DNA is enough to build a small chromosome, says Evan Eichler. One of the study's authors, he works at ... Earlier maps of human gene diversity usually have not marked the large gaps left when bits of DNA get deleted. They usually also have ...

CCMB: chromosome defect responsible for miscarriage found
But in this particular case, it was found that in addition to the normal complement, there was one bi-satellited additional chromosome 22. Besides, there was also a deletion in 22q region, specifically Di George locus, which is crucial for heart ...

Prognostic signature and clonality pattern of recurrently mutated genes in ...
Patients with deletions on chromosome 17p respond worse to treatment than do those without it, resulting in early relapse and shorter survival. This cytogenetic lesion can be found in up to 50% of relapsed and refractory patients, but is rare at ...

Whole-exome analysis reveals novel somatic genomic alterations associated with ...
We report the association of copy number alterations (CNAs) and somatic mutations with EFS24 and our results highlight a potential role for novel gene mutations and CNAs on chromosomes 3q13.12-3q29, 6q21, 11q23.1-11q23.3 and 19q13.12-19q13.43 in DLBCL ...

Black death plague is back; Correction it never left, thanks to evolution
However, a set of three genes on chromosome 4 that code for proteins associated with the innate immune response proteins called toll-like-receptors (TLRs) have piqued researchers interest. TLRs act just as their name implies: as ... plague bacteria ...
