    Gilad et al concluded that certain "A-T variant" phenotypes represent ATM mutations, including some of those without telangiectasia.

    X-ray induced chromosomal aberrations in peripheral blood lymphocytes as well as in skin fibroblasts from Ataxia-telangiectasia patients, and from normal individuals were studied. At all stages of cell cycles-namely G0, G1, and G2, more aberrations were induced in AT cells than in normal cells. In addition, AT cells were sensitive to induction of chromosomal aberration of tritium beta rays from incorporated radioactive thymidine.,AT and XP cells responded with higher frequencies of sister-chromatid exchanges as well as chromosomal aberrations than normal human cells to 5MOP, 8MOP and angelicin.

    Two patients were studied (MP and PH). One of the patients was found to have an inverted duplication of 26 kilobases (kb) of the Cu region. The point is within Jh.

    Levels of spontaneous and induced (gamma radiation and bleomycin) chromosome breakage were established. In CVS gamma radiation is probably the easiest and most reliable way of discriminating between unaffected fetuses and those with AT.
