Cerebral palsy in siblings caused by compound heterozygous mutations in the gene encoding protein C. In addition, we observed a de novo deletion impacting the same segment at least two exons of this gene in a case first reported in our previous publication.
McNaughtonMelissa L. Share this Note. Author contributions M. Clinically, CP cases are more common in males than females with a ratio of 1. This is because the X chromosome is large and contains many more genes than the smaller Y chromosome. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.
An example of a sex-linked trait is red-green colorblindness, which is carried on the X-chromosome. Muscle Muscle cells are specialized to generate force and movement. And that's because, since females have two X chromosomes, the chromosome that doesn't have a mutation can often compensate for the other X chromosome if it has a mutation.
The traits governed by these genes thus show sex-linked inheritance.
Examples of potential risk factors included prematurity, advanced maternal age, in vitro fertilization, congenital malformations, consanguinity, and a family history of CP or early stroke or heart attack at younger than 55 years. Replication stress can lead to CNV formation, and fragile sites.
Note Published by. PALB2 plays a role in homologous recombination and checkpoint response. Cerebral palsy CP is a permanent and nonprogressive condition that impacts posture and movement, affecting 2.
