Nondisjunction Homework for 11/13/14 Fill out notes on the back of page 34, which is the Cell Division Venn Diagram
Nondisjunction Although the events of meiosis usually proceed accurately, sometimes an accident occurs and the chromosomes fail to separate correctly. This is known as nondisjunction.
The zygote that has been created will have an extra or missing chromosome. This would result in an inherited genetic disorder. o In most cases, the presence of an additional chromosome or missing chromosome results in the death of the zygote. Nondisjunction
Monosomy - the presence of only one chromosome from a pair in a cell's nucleus. Trisomy – the presence of three chromosomes instead of 2 in a cell’s nucleus.
Karyotypes When you are born, doctors take a sample of your blood and create a karyotype. This will enable the doctor to see if you have any additional or missing chromosomes. A karyotype is a standardized arrangement of all the chromosomes of a cell.
Karyotypes Homologous chromosomes are paired up, then they are put in order from the LARGEST chromosome pair to the smallest.
Karyotypes Everything okay here?? What gender?? 2 different sized sex chromosomes = male
Down’s syndrome decreased muscle tone at birth asymmetrical or odd-shaped skull round head with flat area at the back of the head slanting eyes small mouth with protruding tongue single crease on the palm slowed growth and development delayed mental and social skills Everything okay here??
Turner’s syndrome short stature (affects almost all girls with Turner, to different degrees) failure of ovaries to develop (90-95% of girls) webbed neck (25%) or short neck (40%) abnormal fingernails and toenails (70%) hearing disorders (50-90%) frequent ear infections in childhood (75%) Everything okay here??
Kleinfelter’s syndrome No symptoms - some men are unaware they have an extra chromosome No symptoms Enlarged male breasts - only severe in about 10% of cases Enlarged male breasts Sparse facial hair Sparse body hair Inability to produce sperm Tallness - more likely to be taller than non-XXY males. Tallness Thinness Normal intelligence Language impairment Delayed language
