After synthesizing a DNA copy, RNase H is used to remove the original mRNA. Next DNA polymerase and another oligo marking the other end of the target sequence are used to make a double-stranded DNA. 2. For some diseases, affected individuals may carry the same mutation, or one of a small number of mutations associated with the disease. [8] Hence, for patients who are suspected of having a maternally inherited optic neuropathy, testing would focus first on these three mutations. Such mutation redundancy among a population of affected individuals may be the result of a hot spot in the gene for mutations, a dependency of the disease on a specific type of abnormality in the protein product caused by only a few mutations, or a founder effect caused by a limited number of original mutations.

5 provides an example of a trait that is expressed only when transmitted from the father. Occasionally the same mutation gives rise to a different disorder, depending on the sex of the parent transmitting the trait. These parental sex effects are evidence of a phenomenon called â∼ imprintingâ∼ . [44] Diseases caused by mutations in imprinted genes can give rise to unusual inheritance patterns (Fig. 5). 5 Pedigree illustrating paternal imprinting compared with segregation of an autosomal dominant trait that is not imprinted.
