Example text

Expansion of the CAG repeat in the coding region of the HD gene and some SCA genes results in a protein with an elongated polyglutamine tract that forms toxic aggregates within certain cells. In fragile X the CGG repeat expansion in the 5′ untranslated region (UTR) results in methylation of promoter sequences and lack of expression of the FMR1 protein. In myotonic dystrophy (MD) it is thought that a gain-offunction RNA mechanism results from both the CTG expansion in the 3′ UTR of the DMPK (type 1 MD) and the CCTG expansion within intron 1 of the ZNF9 gene.

5 Representation of the α- and β-globin regions on chromosomes 16 and 11. 6 Representation of a typical human structural gene. a precursor gene, with subsequent evolutionary divergence forming the Ig superfamily. Gene Structure The original concept of a gene as a continuous sequence of DNA coding for a protein was turned on its head in the early 1980s by detailed analysis of the structure of the human β-globin gene. 6). Most human genes contain introns, but the number and size of both introns and exons is extremely variable.
