Sample text

The family history provided is strongly suggestive of a sex-linked disorder. CMTX is associated with mutations in the Connexin 32 (GJB1) gene on the X chromosome. It would be important to confirm with the clinician the absence of any male-to-male transmission in the pedigree. If identified, this would suggest the likelihood of autosomal dominant transmission with a serendipitous distribution affecting only males. When a large number of male-only CMT cases are observed in a family, the statistical likelihood of autosomal dominant transmission becomes very small.

4. The correct answer is B. A point mutation near the middle of the intron is usually silent, except in rare circumstances, for example when it makes a cryptic splice site fully functional and alters normal mRNA splicing patterns. C. F. Tait 5. The correct answer is C. The Globin Gene Server [2] is the most authoritative online compilation of mutations in the alpha and beta globin gene clusters. References 1.

B. A. edu Question 1: What is your differential diagnosis? The year before, this patient had undergone anterior tibialis transfer surgery with a split left posterior tibialis tendon for a left calcovarus deformity. An electromyogram (EMG) had demonstrated decreased nerve conduction velocity of 15 m/s (normal >45 m/s). A definitive diagnosis was not made, although there was a strong candidate diagnosis of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT), type 1 disease. A prior karyotype was normal as were earlier molecular genetic tests for Fragile X syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, and mitochondrial myopathy.
