x mosaicism


Featured Products

Product Description

Women can be described as genetic mosaics because they have two distinctly different types of cells throughout their bodies. Unlike males, who have one X chromosome (inherited from their mother), females have two X chromosomes in every cell (one from each parent). The fathers copy works in some cells, while the mothers copy works in others. These two X chromosomes often function differently, especially if one carries a defective gene.

Much has been written about the Y chromosome and its role in inducing maleness. This will be the first book about the X chromosome as a key to female development and the role of X-related factors in the etiology of sex differences in human disease. Barbara Migeon, from the renowned McKusick-Nathan Institute at Johns Hopkins, is a major figure in clinical genetics and is eminently qualified to write this book, and she writes clearly and effectively. She describes both the underlying molecular mechanisms and the remarkable genetic consequences of X inactivation and its role in determining the biological concepts characteristic of women.

Females are Mosaics will be valuable to geneticists, biologists, and all health professionals interested in women's health.

This is the only book about the X chromosome as a key to female development and the role of X-related factors in the etiology of sex differences in human disease. This new edition reflects research advances from the six years since the widely praised first edition. New advances include knowledge of species differences in mammalian X inactivation processes and silencing of the inactive X chromosome.

Mosaicisms - District 3 - Mosaicism of the X Chromosome (X Inactivation)

:D Sketchy X inactivation as well as the basics are discussed in this video. Not strictly a genetic mosaicism, but you know, it sorta fits in. Credits to.

  • Chromosome Abnormalities and Genetic Counseling

    Oxford University Press. 2011. ISBN: 9780199749157,0199749159. 648 pages.

    Chromosome abnormalities have been known for over 50 years, though the methods of review have become increasing more sophisticated and precise. Surprisingly, the questions that parents and families raise in genetic counseling have changed unimportant over that period. Questions like, "Why did an abnormality happen? Why did it cause the problems we see in our child? Would it happen again in a future child? How could we avoid it circumstance again?" are common concerns for families. This new edition of Chromosome Abnormalities and Genetic Counseling deals with these universal questions, and in the context of the new developments in molecular cytogenetic analysis, but retaining always the major focus on the needs of the families in which these conditions occur. Thoroughly updated directly again,...

  • Mosaicism in Defenceless Skin

    Springer Science & Business Media. 2013. ISBN: 9783642387654,3642387659. 229 pages.

    Mosaicism is a substantial biologic concept, originally developed from studying plants and animals. All cutaneous neoplasms, both benign and malignant, reflect mosaicism, which is the essential basis to explain numerous human skin disorders. For example, various mosaic patterns visualize the embryonic maturing of human skin and X-linked skin disorders explain why women live longer than men, and so on. This book presents, for the first sometimes, a comprehensive overview on the strikingly manifold patterns and peculiarities of mosaic skin disorders. This reader-friendly structured and straightforward journal will help the dermatologist to understand the underlying molecular mechanisms of skin disorders in order to further improve the treatment outcome.
