Paternal inheritance of translocation chromosomes in a t(X;21) patient with X linked muscular dystrophy.

Abstract

A number of DNA probes from the short arm of the X chromosome have been used to study the inheritance of the translocation chromosomes in a girl with an X; autosome translocation and muscular dystrophy. The two translocation chromosomes were found to be derived from the father's single normal X chromosome, ruling out maternal inheritance of a pre-existent mutation and enhancing the concept that the de novo translocation is responsible for the dystrophic phenotype.
