SummaryInformation is presented which has been obtained from an exhaustive examination of 44 probands with a supernumerary marker chromosome (mar) and their families. The data include the derivation of the mar, frequency in various populations, inheritance and possible effect on fertility, congenital abnormality, and mental ability. The practical problems in assessing the risk of abnormality in a foetus discovered during prenatal diagnosis to be carrying a mar, are discussed. 

Newborn with Supernumerary Marker Chromosome Derived from Chromosomes 11 And 22- A Case Report

The interpretation of supernumerary chromosome is important for genetic counseling and prognosis. Here, we used SNP array and conventional karyotyping method to identify a denovo marker chromosome

Prenatal diagnosis of partial tetrasomy 14: a case study

Prenatal specimens were received from a fetus with abnormalities noted on ultrasound and a supernumerary marker chromosome (SMC) was detected: 47,XY,+mar and FISH further classified this to be partial tetrasomy for chromosome 14.

Similar molecular deletions on chromosome 15q11.2 are encountered in both the Prader-Willi and Angelman syndromes

Comparative molecular analysis of chromosome 15, sub-band q11.2 of patients with the Prader-Willi or Angelman syndromes demonstrates that they have a similar deletion, addressing genetic similarities between patients who have deletion and those who have the inv dup.

Supernumerary marker chromosomes derived from chromosome 15: analysis of 32 new cases

A detailed analysis of 32 SMC(15) carriers who were ascertained in pre‐ or post‐natal routine cytogenetic diagnostics found that SMC with euchromatic content led to mental and psychomotor retardation and SMC without euchROMatin were found to have no influence on the carrier's phenotype.

Mosaic trisomy (8)(p22 → pter) in a fetus caused by a supernumerary marker chromosome without alphoid sequences

Our objective was to characterise a marker chromosome in cultured amniocytes of a fetus with a mos 47,XX,+mar[3]/46,XX[14] karyotype.

A case of an infertile male with a small supernumerary marker chromosome negative for M-FISH and containing only heterochromatin

The small supernumerary marker chromosome could play a causative role in male infertility although the mechanism remains to be elucidated.

Update and Review: Supernumerary Marker Chromosomes

The most recent information regarding supernumerary marker chromosomes, including genetic counseling issues, is summarized in this article.

Sperm and embryo analysis in a carrier of supernumerary inv dup(15) marker chromosome.

A small, paternally inherited, supernumerary marker chromosome, inv dup(15), is identified in a phenotypically normal and normozoospermic male from a couple with reproductive problems, and FISH analysis showed that the marker was present in 26% of sperm nuclei.



Cytogenetic and clinical studies in five cases of inv dup(15)

Mental and developmental retardation, hypotonia, behavioral disturbances, seizures, abnormal dermatoglyphics, and mild somatic anomalies were the most consistent findings in patients with Inv dup(15).

Prenatal detection of an accessory chromosome identified as an inversion duplication (15)

SummaryA small accessory chromosome was detected in amniocytes and maternal lymphocytes and identified as an inversion duplication of the short arms of two chromosomes 15. This is the first time that

Supernumerary chromosomes in six patients

Cytogenetic investigations on five constitutional supernumeraries are presented and correlated to the clinical picture of carriers, finding two severely mentally retarded, unrelated patients and one mildly retarded patient had a small centric fragment, probably a ring chromosome.

Properties and significance of a small marker chromosome in amniotic fluid cells

The presence of a small supernumerary metacentric chromosome in an amniotic fluid cell culture was reported, and was characterized by the presence of four satellite regions, two on each side of the centromere.

Inv dup (15) with mental retardation but few dysmorphic features.

The first patient from Scotland with similar cytogenetic findings is reported, and it is reported that both ends are derived from the short arm, centromere, and proximal long arm of chromosome 15.

An extra small metacentric chromosome identified as a deleted chromosome No. 17

In an 11‐year‐old girl with multiple congenital abnormalities and mental retardation, an extra, small, metacentric chromosome was identified by banding methods as a deleted chromosome No. 17. This

Cytogenetics and infertility in man *

A systematic survey of 1599 male patients attending a subfertility clinic has shown that 2.2% were chromosomally abnormal. This frequency was approximately five times higher than that found among the

Small accessory chromosomes (SAC) and their genotype--phenotype correlation.

In majority of SAC carriers the origin of extra-chromosome material remained unknown (21 out of 29 index patients), even when applying different banding techniques, and the only common feature of all described SAC seems to be the presence of C-banded heterochromatin.

Origin of a small metacentric chromosome: Familial and cytogenetic evidence

The clinical, chromosomal, and familial evidence suggest that these abnormal chromosomes originated in the occurrence of one transverse break of the centromere and subsequent misdivision of a chromosome 18 in an earlier generation of this family.
