Partial translocation of NOR and its activity in a balanced carrier and in her cri-du-chat fetus


Cytogenetic analysis of a balanced reciprocal translocation t(5;13) carrier and her unbalanced 5p-conceptus was carried out. This carrier mother had previously given birth to a child with cri-du-chat syndrome. Silver staining demonstrated the breakpoint on 13p within the nucleolus organizer region (NOR). In the carrier, the NORs both at the original site… (More)
