We report a 23-year-old phenotypically normal female patient who had previously suffered from recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) who found to have an X;14 trans location and a Methylene- Tetrahdrofolate-Reductase (MTHFR) C677T heterozygote mutation. G-banding cytogenetic analysis was cultured from the peripheral blood lymphocy tes. MTHFR, factor V Leiden and prothrombin gene mutations were studied from DNA obtained from peripheral blood lym- phocytes with stripassay. DNA for X inactivation pattern study was also obtained with the method described above. G-banding cytogentic analysis from cultured peripheral blood lymphocytes of the patient revealed 46,XderX,t(X;14)(q13;q32) and found to be heterozygous for C677T MTHFR mutation. An X inactivation pattern study revealed a complete inactivated nor mal X chromosome, asexpected. The possible causes of recurrent miscarriages in our patient were unbalanced gametes, skewed X inactivation and MTHFR C677T heterozygote mutation. © 2011 by Türkiye Klinikleri.

Evidence from autoimmune thyroiditis of skewed X-chromosome inactivation in female predisposition to autoimmunity Ozcelik, T.; Uz, E.; Akyerli, C. B.; Bagislar, S.; Mustafa, C. A.; Gursoy, A.; Akarsu, N.; Toruner, G.; Kamel, N.; Gullu, S. (Nature Publishing Group, 2006)The etiologic factors in the development of autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITDs) are not fully understood. We investigated the role of skewed X-chromosome inactivation (XCI) mosaicism in female predisposition to AITDs. One ...
Skewed X inactivation in an X linked nystagmus family resulted from a novel, p.R229G, missense mutation in the FRMD7 gene Kaplan, Y.; Vargel, I.; Kansu, T.; Akin, B.; Rohmann, E.; Kamaci, S.; Uz, E.; Ozcelik, T.; Wollnik, B.; Akarsu, N. A. (BMJ Group, 2008)Aims: This study aimed to identify the underlying genetic defect of a large Turkish X linked nystagmus (NYS) family. Methods: Both Xp11 and Xq26 loci were tested by linkage analysis. The 12 exons and intron-exon junctions ...
