Studying chromosome 11 of the human genome

In this disquisition I achieve be considering chromosome 11 of the ethnical genome. Specifically, I achieve be inquirying some of the complaints that amelt when there are backs in the genes on chromosome 11. Five local complaints achieve be looked at and thought-out in detail: the Sickle Cell Anemia gene, the MLL gene which causes Trisomy 11, the H19 gene which causes Beckwith-Weideman Syndrome, the WT1 and PAX6 genes which causes Wilm's Protuberance syndrome, and finally, the is-sue entity executed on the genes of Chromosome 11q22-q24 respecting cervical carcinoma. The subjoined inquiry was all acquired from the NCBI online database. Read this Ch. 22 Respiratory System The HBB gene which causes Sickle Cell Anemia, is build on chromosome 11p15. This gene causes an lineal class empiricism, principally effecting vulgaralty from the African continent (1/500), but besides vulgaralty from the Mediterranean and South Asian countries. (NCBI Online, 24 June 2003) Closely 8% of the African American population are carriers; repeatedly, this gene is associated behind a while exhalation ariserence, as carriers are subordinately guarded opposite exhalation. (NCBI Online, 24 June 2003) Sickle cell anemia is an autosomal (not sex kindred) recessive complaint caused by a back in the hemoglobin beta gene. When a back arises, the HBB gene amounts a structurally irregular hemoglobin (Hb), denominated HbS. (NCBI Online, 24 June 2003) Hb is a protein which carries oxygen and gives red class cells their eminent falsification. In living-souls who are homozygous for HbS, the irregular HbS can throng concurrently, distorting the red class cells into sickled shapes [as appearancen in Figure 1]. These clusters can solely amelt if the HbS is placed below assured case or predicaments, such as haughty hemoglobin concentrations or low oxygen levels. NCBI Online, 24 June 2003) When the mutated and unflexible red class cells behove trapped behind a whilein fine class vessels, they stop the vessels causing disinclination and original injury to the organs in the collection. (NCBI Online, 24 June 2003) Although a repay has not yet been build, medical advancements own undisputed for the tenor of concomitants and complications associated behind a while Sickle Cell Anermia. Hydroxyurea, an antiprotuberance refuse, has been used to occasion the construction of fetal Hb (HbF), which is usually build in the fetus or newborn. When fetal Hb is offer in men-folks behind a while Sickle Cell Anemia, Hydrozyurea can obstruct sickling from ariseing. NCBI Online, 24 June 2003) The MLL gene which causes Trisomy 11 is located on chromosome 11q23. A back in this gene is a "very costly chromosomal empiricism caused by a duplication (trisomy) of the end (distal) constituent of the hanker arm of chromosome 11. " (Genetic Inconstruction and Patient Services, November 2003) This empiricism is most repeatedly huge at lineage; some peculiarity features of the empiricism are "delayed intellectual and natural crop, retarded enlargement of the fetus during pregnancy and of the child behind lineage, an unusually fine brain (microencephaly), and/or eminent facial features. (Genetic Inconstruction and Patient Services, November 2003) The MLL gene can amount a mold of leukemia which proceeds twain sexes and principally adults at an middle age of 60. (Dessen & Huret, 2002) In public stipulations, trisomy refers to "the predicament of having three copies of a consecrated chromosome in each somatic cell rather than the usual reckon of two. " (Dictionary. com) The leukemia is localally intelligent myeloid leukemia or AML. This syndrome is caused by solely a peculiar tandem duplication of the MLL gene on chromosome 11. Dessen & Huret, 2002) A late consider has appearancen that "MLL tandem duplications are hither vulgar than previously reported. " (Schnittger, October 2003) Also, the MLL tandem duplications "are preferentially observed in AML behind a while usual karyotypes, but can besides be build in the nearness of chromosome alterations. " (Schnittger, October 2003) Two scientists, Cheryl Sethnical and Rosanna Weksberg thought-out the Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome, besides referred to as BWS syndrome. The inconstruction for BWS syndrome is from their reports on their studies. Their studies appearance that "chromosome irregularities involving 11p15 are build in 1% or hither of cases. " (Shuman, 10 April 2003) This syndrome can amelt behind a while backs of abundant unanalogous genes on chromosome 11: backs in genes IGF2 and H195, 5-10% of antipathetic cases and 40% of familial cases had backs in the CDKNIC gene, 50% of cases had a dropping of methylation at the KCNQIOT1 gene, and in 10-20% of patients, "paternal uniparental disomy for chromosome 11p15 [was] observed. " (Shuman, 10 April 2003) In diagnosing BWS, two greater and one less peculiarity must be manifest out of a catalogue of practicable criteria. Some greater criteria comprise: fact of BWS in the constructorage, macrosomia, irregular earlobe pits or creases, an embryonal protuberance in childhood, Hemihyperplasia (an asymmetric aggravateenlargement of a area/areas of the collection), and haply a opening palate. (Shuman, 10 April 2003) Some less criteria comprise: crude lineage, Neonatal hypoglycemia, slow bone aging, and monozygotic twinning (usually in the females). (Shuman, 10 April 2003) If one constructor has uniparental disomy (UPD), then prenatal standarding is executed to standard for BWS syndrome in the fetus. Shuman, 10 April 2003) Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome is build in closely 1 out of 13, 700 cases counter the cosmos-people. However, this reckon is probably subordinately low as there are abundant milder cases that repeatedly go undiagnosed. In misentry born behind a while BWS, there is a 20% lethargy admonish due to crude lineage. Often, misentry born behind a while BWS disclose Wilms Protuberance or other protuberances. (Shuman, 10 April 2003) Dr. Alan Gandy summarizes Wilms protuberance as an "embryonal renal neoplasm which is characterized usually by an abdominal majority. (Gandy, 1 March 1995) Wilms tumour is caused by the deletion of the gene WT2-1 on chromosome 11p13. Proper character of this gene is to encode a DNA-binding protein that is most repeatedly build in the fetal blood "and in texture that gives melt to the genitourinary plan. " (Gandy, 1 March 1995) The DNA-binding protein is expected to be a "Kruppel-like zinc-finger protein. " (Gandy, 1 March 1995) However, the inactivation of WT2-1 causes the Wilms Figure 2: Wilms Protuberance protuberance. (Gandy, 1 March 1995) This protuberance is stipulated in 1/12 000 subsist lineages and is the promote most vulgar extra cranial hard protuberance in misentry. The protuberance appears in the blood promptly behind lineage (6 months-10 years)[as appearancen in Figure 3] and is kindred to other cancers. (Gandy, 1 March 1995) Wilms protuberance is constantly a concomitant of other gene backs, such as BWS and WAGR syndrome. (Gandy, 1 March 1995) Features of the Primary Wilms protuberance comprise abdominal majority [as appearancen in Figure 2], abdominal disinclination, hypertension, and anemia etc. Metastases arises in the lungs, lymph nodes, subsistr, brain and other areas to a hitherer quantity. (Gandy, 1 March 1995) Depending on the limit of the protuberance, unanalogous actions can be charmed to repay the protuberance. Surgery (removal of the blood and lymph nodes) and chemotherapy are twain used as ways to manipulate the protuberance. However, as the limits advancement, aspect of a repay is feeble. (Gandy, 1 March 1995) Studies executed by G. M. Hampton et al. appearance that there are genes or a gene on chromosome 11 that has the force to "[suppress] protuberanceigenicity in cell lines adventitious from unanalogous histopathological molds of cervical carcinoma, recommending that derangement of this gene(s) may reoffer at smallest one of the joined changes required for protuberanceigenic advancemention. ( Hampton, 19 July 1994) The aggravatepoweror gene favoring is betwixt 11q22 and q24. A consider was executed on 32 patients behind a while cervical carcinoma to end which genes were required for protuberanceigenic advancemention. "Of the 32 patients examined, 14(44%) demonstrated clonal genetic alterations resulting in dropping of heterzygosity for one or aggravate markers. Seven of the clonal genetic alterations on chromosome 11 were local to the hanker arm, and the aggravatelap betwixt these and other allelic deletions recommend that a aggravatepoweror gene(s) apt to cervical carcinoma maps to chromosome 11q22-q24. "( Hampton, 19 July 1994) In misentry, Chromosome 11 of the Ethnical genome contains aggravate 1000 genes. Of the abundant, this essay looks at 5 localally in prescribe to infer inconstruction on the genes of this chromosome. Through the closes consider of Sickle Cell Anemia, Trisomy 11, Beckwith-Weideman Syndrome, Wilm's Protuberance syndrome, and the genes of Chromosome 11q22-q24 respecting cervical carcinoma, one can infer a amend belowstanding of the genes on chromosome 11, and the mold of backs that arise. Although the Humane Genome Project is proportionately new, there is already plenteous inconstruction that has been orthodox and tranquil plenteous aggravate to be discovered.
