Latest Cytogenetics Stories
Researchers from the University of Helsinki analyzed thoroughly the commonly occurring genetic variation in chromosome X, one of the two sex-determining chromosomes, in almost 25,000 Northern European individuals with diverse health-related information available.
New insights into how the cells in our bodies divide could improve our knowledge of a condition linked to cancer.
A new study in PLOS Genetics has found that the human race may not be losing the Y chromosome after all.
Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:
Plants can reproduce in a multitude of different ways, unlike humans and animals.
Chromosomes – the 46 tightly-wrapped packages of genetic material in our cells – are iconically depicted as X-shaped formations.
The Y chromosome is a symbol of maleness, present only in males and encoding genes important for male reproduction. But live mouse offspring can be generated with assisted reproduction using germ cells from males with the Y chromosome contribution limited to only two genes: the testis determinant factor Sry and the spermatogonial proliferation factor Eif2s3y.
An analysis of the genealogical and medical records of males in Utah's multi-generational families strongly supports the case that inherited variations in the Y chromosome, the male sex chromosome, play a role in the development of prostate cancer.
