  1. 1. Sex Chromosome Evolution in a Hermaphrodite : Genetic and phenotypic relationships between sex roles

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Biology

    Author : Anna Nordén; [2017-11]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sex chromosome evolution; Hermaphrodite; Inter-sexual genetic correlation; Quantitative genetics; Macrostomum lignano; Experimental evolution; Sexual conflict;

    Abstract : Sex chromosome evolution in a hermaphrodite ancestor starts with the establishment of a sex-determining region (SDR). Over time, sex-specific genes, and/or sexually antagonistic alleles will become linked to the SDR. READ MORE

  2. 2. Chromosome aberrations and environmental exposures in acute leukemia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine at Huddinge University Hospital

    Author : Ragnhild Rosengren Lindquist; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acute leukemia; chromosome 3; chromosome 8; fragile site; occupational exposure; mutagen exposure; case-control study; trisomy; benzene; organic solvent; petroleum; epidemiology; environmental carcinogens; painter; driver;

    Abstract : The aims of this thesis are to evaluate the role of environmental exposures, especially professional exposure to organic solvents and petroleum products in the etiology of acute leukemia and to investigate if there is a correlation between the exposure to a specific leukemogen factor and a clonal chromosome aberration of the leukemic cells. Papers I and II present results of a case-control study of environmental exposures, in all occupations during life-time, medical treatments with medicines, chemotherapy and radiation, tobacco-use and the exposure to chemical compounds in private life in 120 patients with acute leukemia and of 120 controls, matched for age (+ 4 years), residence and sex.

  3. 3. Proteins influencing the integrity of meiotic chromosome dynamics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Genomics Research

    Author : Mary-Rose Hoja; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Aneuploidy (trisomy or monosomy) is the leading genetic cause of human pregnancy loss and results from aberrant meiotic chromosome segregation. Accurate segregation of meiotic chromosomes depends on extensive pairing (called synapsis) and recombination between them. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prenatal diagnosis of structural malformations and chromosome anomalies Detection, influence of Body Mass Index and ways to improve screening

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Eric Hildebrand; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Introduction: Prenatal diagnosis of structural malformations and chromosome anomalies is possible in the presence of an effective screening with ultrasound during pregnancy. The continuous evolution of the ultrasound equipment facilitates the examination. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterization of human chromosome 22 : Cloning of breakpoints of the constitutional translocation t(11;22)(q23;q11) and detection of small constitutional delections by microarray CGH

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

    Author : Isabel Tapia Paez; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chromosome 22; t 11; 22 q23; q 11 ; inverted repeats palindromes; DiGeorge Velo-cardio-facial syndrome; array-CGH;

    Abstract : Chromosome 22 is the second smallest human chromosome, composing approximately 1.5% of the genome. The short arm of this acrocentric chromosome harbors ribosomal genes and the long arm contains the protein coding genes. READ MORE
