The effect of cell culture on X chromosome mosaicism
MetadataShow full item record
The effects of cell culture on X chromosome aneuploidy in young women with established fertility were investigated. Fluorescence in situ hybridisation was performed on paired samples of mitogen stimulated and uncultured lymphocytes using probes for the X and 9 chromosomes. All participants had <5% X aneuploidy in both preparations. X chromosome loss occurred more frequently than gain. These results provide important information when interpreting the low levels of X mosaicism seen in routine cytogenetic practice.

Zhou, Q.; Zhang, J.; Bachtrog, D.; An, N.; Huang, Q.; Jarvis, E.; Gilbert, Thomas; Zhang, G. (2014)Sex-specific chromosomes, like the W of most female birds and the Y of male mammals, usually have lost most genes owing to a lack of recombination. We analyze newly available genomes of 17 bird species representing the ...
