HUMAN GENETICS Disorders
Interpreting Pedigrees with Andrew Douch zInterpreting Pedigrees the Fast Way –Example 1(6:42)Interpreting Pedigrees the Fast Way zExample 2 (6:46)Example 2 z1. Is anyone with a phenotype different from parents? z2.Are there any girls with recessive phenotype who have a father or son with a dominant phenotype? zAutosomal Dominant X-linked dominant zAutosomal Recessive X-linked recessive
Autosomal Dominant: trait does not skip generations
Autosomal Recessive: tends to skip generations
X-linked dominant: both males and females affected does not skip generations zAffected sons have an affected mother
X-linked recessive: more males than females affected zSkips generations: affected sons from non-affected mothers
Testing for genetic disorders zUltrasound imaging-a sonogram made from passing high-frequency sound waves with a transducer through the abdomen z(least invasive)
Testing for genetic disorders zAmniocentesis-a small amount of amniotic fluid, which contains fetal tissues, is sampled zUse cells for karyotyping
Testing for genetic disorders zChorionic villus sampling (CVS)-take a sample of the placental tissue for chromosomal abnormalities zCan use cells for karyotyping
Cystic Fibrosis-ff zIt causes the body to produce a thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and digestive tract. On Chromosome 7 Autosomal recessive
One test is for salty skin CF salt test CF salt test zSalty skin (Mutations of the CFTR gene affect functioning of the chloride ion channels) zthin (do not digest well) zabnormal bowel movements zCFTR video (8:18) describe 6 mutation disfunctions for 2 pts Ex CrCFTR video
Cystic Fibrosis (cont.) zMost common fatal genetic disease in US today zMost common in Caucasians zSmall Child CR Treatment (thumping)Small Child CR Treatment zThumping Vest (1:24)Thumping Vest zLiving with CF (3:48)Living with CF Daily meds
Cystic Fibrosis zChromosome 7 zFF = no CF zFf = carrier zff = has CF z(recessive) zLife with CF (3:48) Life with CF
PKU zPhenylketonuria (PKU)
PKU on chromosome 12 recessive zLacks enzyme to break down the amino acid phenylalanine (found in milk)
PKU (cont.) zThe breakdown products can be harmful to developing nervous systems zLeads to mental retardation. zKate with PKU MovieKate with PKU Movie
PKU zChromosome 12 zPut on low protein diet zAvoid phenylalanine
TAY SACHS zResults in degeneration of the nervous system. zChromosome 15 zrecessive zHighest rate in Eastern European Jews, next Irish- Americans
Tay Sachs (cont) zLack enzyme to break down fat, accumulates in brain (poisons it) ztt zChromosome 15 zNOVA Online | Cracking the Code of Life | Watch the Program Here #3NOVA Online | Cracking the Code of Life | Watch the Program Here
Tay Sachs Disease is a fatal lipid storage disorder where a fatty substance (ganglioside) builds up in the nerve tissue and cells of the brain. This is caused by an insufficient enzyme called beta- hexosaminidase A that catalyzes the biodegration of gangliosides.
Tay-Sachs Symptoms Symptoms first appear at 4 to 6 months of age when an apparently healthy baby gradually stops smiling, crawling or turning over, loses its ability to grasp or reach out, and eventually becomes blind, paralyzed and unaware of its surroundings. Death usually occurs by age 4. Tay-Sachs PTTay-Sachs PT (1:52)
Albinism zInability to manufacture pigments (melanin) in skin and eyes zAutosomal recessive trait zChromosome 11
Famous Albinos zAndy Warhol, a famous artist Rock musician Edgar Winter, an albino. The Twins in Matrix Reloaded
Is this an advantage or disadvantage?
zDifferent kinds of albinism zaffect chromosomes 1, 9, 10, 11, 15 and X (ocular albinism) Often rapid back and forth eye movement – lack of pigment in eyes.
Polar bears actually have black skin under all that white fur.
Sickle-Cells zNormal Red Blood Cells-like a donut zSickle-cells collapse, hard, clog vessels
Sickle-Cell Anemia zCodominant zSS = disease zAS = carrier (somewhat resistant to malaria) zAA =normal hemoglobin zLiving with SSALiving with SSA Plasmodium in blood - malaria

Color Blindness z3 seconds to determine number Ishihara Test for Color Blindness
zThe individual with normal color vision will see a 5 revealed in the dot pattern. An individual with Red/Green (the most common) color blindness will see a 2 revealed in the dots. zAre You color blind? (2:26)Are You color blind?
Color blindness=cant tell certain colors zRecessive on X chromosome = c zX C X c = normal female (carrier) zX c Y = color-blind male

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
MD zDuchenne Muscular Dystrophy zOn X m chromosome zWeakens and degenerates muscles zFound mostly in males zmutation in the dystrophin gene
DMD zabsence of dystrophin, a protein that helps keep muscle cells intact. -Leg muscles first. -Calves often enlarged. -Eventually this weakness spreads to the arms, neck, and other areas.
DMD zOnset ·Early childhood - about 2 to 6 years. z Symptoms · Generalized weakness of muscle zWasting affecting limb and trunk zDuchenne Timeline (5:43)Duchenne Timeline
DMD zSurvival rare beyond late twenties. zX-linked recessive (females are carriers ).
POLYGENIC DISORDERS zDetermination of disorder occurs on more than one chromosome
SPINA BIFIDA is a fault in the spinal column in which one or more vertebrae (the bones which form the backbone) fail to form properly, leaving a gap or split. A Snapshot of Spina BifidaA Snapshot of Spina Bifida (4:52)
Spina Bifida #6, #14 and others zGap in spinal column
Shunts often put in the brain to drain the fluid
Agent Orange zChildren with Spina Bifida whose parent was in contact with Agent Orange during the Vietnam War are compensated
Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate zA cleft is an opening in the lip, the roof of the mouth (hard palate) or the soft tissue in the back of the mouth (soft palate). #11, #17, #22
Clefts zBilateral Complete Cleft Lip/PalateBilateral Complete Cleft Lip/Palate Clefts occur more often among Asians and certain groups of American Indians than among whites. They occur less frequently among blacks.
Cleft lip/palate zAs you can imagine there are feeding problems z#11, #22, #17 – zPolygenic zUnilateral Cleft Lip Repair (9:15)Unilateral Cleft Lip Repair
Hypercholesterolemia polygenic dominant zis the presence of high levels of cholesterol in the blood. zlead to atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) zadditive effects of multiple genes (polygenic) yellowish patches consisting of cholesterol deposits above the eyelids.
On Y chromosome SRY gene: male determining only on Y zTestes determining factor
NOTE: zIf you are born with no X chromosome- it is fatal zIf missing an autosome-it is fatal
X chromosome zSex-linked traits
Triple-X Syndrome ztriplo-X ztrisomy X zXXX syndrome z47,XXX aneuploidy There is usually no distinguishable difference to the naked eye between women with triple X and the rest of the female population.
Triple-X Syndrome zAlthough females with this condition may be taller than average, this chromosomal change typically causes no unusual physical features. zMost females with triple X syndrome have normal sexual development and are able to conceive children.
Nondisjunction zChromosomes to segregate unevenly during meiosis zMistakes in MeiosisMistakes in Meiosis
Turners Syndrome Adults with Turner syndrome are short, averaging around four feet, eight inches in height. Flap in neck Small breasts
zBut girls with Turner syndrome don't start life as very short individuals - they become short over time-do not develop sexually
Turners Syndrome 45 X0
Kleinfelters 47 XXY
Kleinfelters -Testes are small -breast growth (gynaecomastia) -poorly developed secondary sexual characteristics.
Klinefelters zMen are sterile (no sperm).
Special Topics In Human Genetics
BARR BODIES zWhen a female is born one of her X chromosomes is inactivated = a Barr Body (early in embryonic development) zUsed to test femaledness at Olympics zSo there is not excess of X info in females
Calico Cat – X linked zOnly females have 3 colors (orange, black, white) zLooks like Pepper
Multiple colors in cats mostly in females
zGENETIC DISORDERS REFERENCE SHEET: Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21) Edward's Syndrome (Trisomy 18) Patau Syndrome (Trisomy 13) Klinefelter Syndrome (47, XXY) Turner Syndrome (45 XO) Metafemale (46XXX)-taller Autosomes (#1-22) so 44 if normal
Angelman Syndrome zDeletion of Chromosome 15 zIf inherited from FATHER zSymptoms: Short and obese, delayed development, frequent laughing
Prader-Willi Syndrome zDeletion is inherited from mothers chromosome 15 zHyperactive, chronic hunger, low muscle tone, obesity
Prader-Willi Syndrome –Before and after controlled eating
