Trisomy 18 and Trisomy 13, known as Edwards Syndrome and Patau Syndrome, respectively, are the two other autosomal trisomies recognized in live-born humans.
Trisomy of the sex chromosomes is also possible, for example (47, XXX), (47, XXY), and (47, XYY).
Different species normally have different numbers of chromosomes from one another, and the terms aneuploid and polyploid refer to the chromosome number being different from the usual number for that species.
Chromosome abnormalities are detected in 1 of 160 live human births.
The first 22 pairs of chromosomes (called autosomes) are numbered from 1 to 22, from largest to smallest.
The 23rd pair of chromosomes are the sex chromosomes.
Disomy is the presence of two copies of a chromosome.
The characteristics of the chromosomes in a cell as they are seen under a light microscope are called the karyotype.During meiosis, when germ cells divide to create sperm and egg (gametes), each half should have the same number of chromosomes.But sometimes, the whole pair of chromosomes will end up in one gamete, and the other gamete will not get that chromosome at all.Nondisjunction usually occurs as the result of a weakened mitotic checkpoint, as these checkpoints tend to arrest or delay cell division until all components of the cell are ready to enter the next phase.If a checkpoint is weakened, the cell may fail to 'notice' that a chromosome pair is not lined up on the mitotic plate, for example.
