Cytogenetic and molecular studies of trisomy 13.

Chromosome heteromorphisms, restriction fragment length polymorphisms, or both were used to study the parental origin of 33 cases of simple trisomy 13 and eight cases of translocation trisomy 13. The most common origin for the simple trisomies was non-disjunction at maternal meiosis I, while for the translocations an equal number of paternally and… CONTINUE READING
