BIOS 2250  The risk of nondisjunction and maternal age increases rapidly after 35 years of maternal age. A large number of trisomy babies are from mothers 35 years and older. About 1/3 of pregnancies at age 42 and older result in trisomy.  Maternal age is a risk factor because the “maternal selection” may become less effective as the mother ages. Maternal selection refers to the natural process the body goes through when a genetically impaired child is conceived.  Since the mother’s eggs stay in metaphase-1 until they are ready to ovulate, an older mother’s egg can have a longer arrest at metaphase-1 and in return can cause non- disjunction.  The production of sperm is very different from the production of the egg. Sperm production starts at puberty and occurs continuously throughout a man’s life.  The maternal selection hypothesis states that if a growing embryo is completely healthy, it will implant itself in the mother’s uterus. Many severe genetic diseases will be rejected by the mother’s body and result in a miscarriage. As a woman gets older, her maternal selection gets worse.  There are many other chromosomal aberrations. ▬ Deletions are the loss of chromosome material ▬ Translocations = the exchange of chromosomal segments between non homologous chromosomes ▬ Uniparental disomy is when two of the chromosomes come from the same parent ▬ Fragile sites on a chromosome  Translocation can cause heritable Downs syndrome in some cases. A translocation of chromosome 21 can cause an individual to end up with 3 copies of chromosome 21 but still only 46 chromosomes.  “Nuclein” is the name that Miescher to chemical DNA in the nucleus.  Protein – usually a very big molecule that is relatively neutrally charged. Acid hydrolysis produces nucleotides BIOS 2250  DNA – A big, negatively charged molecule. Something like an acid. Acid hydrolysis produces nucleotides.  A smooth strain is a deadly strain while a rough strain is not deadly. Boiling a smooth strain can kill it so it is no longer deadly.  If you combine a dead smooth strain and a rough strain, the two end up killing the animal it is placed into. Something about the rough and dead smooth strains together make the live rough strain into a smooth strain.
