Three patients with accessory small ring chromosomes derived from chromosome 1 are presented together with additional clinical details and cytogenetic analyses of a previously reported patient. Cytogenetic analysis was undertaken by FISH using a reverse painting probe generated from one of the patients by microdissection of the r(1) chromosome and with a(More)
Three individuals, ascertained for differing reasons, were found to have extra material in the proximal long arm of chromosome 15. The abnormal offspring of one of these also carried this chromosome. The extra material appears identical in all four individuals. The occurrence of this variant in patients of normal phenotype indicates that the region q11-q13(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Studies in the carnivorous family Lentibulariaceae in the last years resulted in the discovery of the smallest plant genomes and an unusual pattern of genomic GC content evolution. However, scarcity of genomic data in other carnivorous clades still prevents a generalization of the observed patterns. Here the aim was to fill this gap by(More)
Bryophytes dominate some ecosystems despite their extraordinary sensitivity to habitat quality. Nevertheless, some species behave differently across various regions. The existence of local adaptations is questioned by a high dispersal ability, which is thought to redistribute genetic variability among populations. Although Sphagnum warnstorfii is an(More)
The development and use of the computer-aided retrieval of karyotypes (CAROK), a register of chromosomal abnormalities in Queensland, is described. The six independent cytogenetic laboratories serving the population of 2.2 million contribute data to the register which provides total population information on the occurrence of chromosomal abnormalities,(More)
Decreased neutrophil alkaline phosphatase (NAP) synthesis is a classical feature of Philadelphia (Ph) positive chronic phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Whether this aberration is an integral leukemic property of the cell or results from mediation by other factors is unclear. During alpha-interferon (alpha-IFN) based therapy the relationship between Ph(More)
