Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A complex and unique, apparently balanced translocation involving three autosomes and an X in a phenotypically abnormal child is described. Family studies using glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase as a marker provided biochemical evidence of non-random expression of this Xq locus and suggested that this de novo abnormality in the proband could be paternal in origin - the first such instance to be recorded.
