We previously observed low level mosaicism (2-4% normal cells) in phytohemagglutinin-stimulated peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) in 29% of a small group of elderly persons with Down syndrome (DS). An analysis of cytogenetic data on 154 trisomy 21 cases (age 1 day to 68 years) showed that the proportion of diploid cells in such cultures significantly(More)
We report on a fetus with 47,XX,+15 chromosome abnormality detected on chorionic villus sampling (CVS). The pregnancy was terminated at 15.5 weeks of gestation and chromosome analysis done on amniocytes and fetal tissues showed a karyotype 46,XX/47,XX,+15. Autopsy showed multiple abnormalities. Short-arm polymorphisms of the three number 15 chromosomes were(More)
We have further characterized an unusual 22p+ marker chromosome with a double nucleolus organizer region (dNOR) previously identified in a family with late-onset dementia of the Alzheimer type. G-banding and morphology of the marker's q arm were typically normal. However, the p+ arm had a terminal cytological satellite and a GT-positive region at the(More)
