A familial X-22 translocation with an extra X chromosome
Department or Administrative Unit
The occurrence of X-autosome translocations in man is rather infrequently observed. This type of rearrangement is of particular interest to geneticists because of the variety of late-labeling patterns which occur as a result of inactivation of the X chromosome and because of the role this inactivation may play with respect to clinical abnormalities.
We report in this paper a family in which the long arm of a no. 22 chromosome has been translocated to the long arm of an X chromosome. In addition to the translocation, some members of the kinship also possess an extra X chromosome.
