    Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis for A Y; 14 Translocation; Consideration of Meiotic Outcomes and Embryo Choice

    Approximately one in every 300 people in the general population carries a balanced chromosome rearrangement. These are primarily balanced reciprocal translocations (prevalence approximately 1 in 500) and Robertsonian translocations (approximately 1 in 1000) but also include inter- and intra-chromosomal insertions, deletions, pericentric inversions and complex chromosome rearrangements.

    A Novel Variant in the SCN5A Gene May Cause Brugada Syndrome

    Brugada Syndrome (BrS) is a cardiac arrhythmogenic entity characterized in the electrocardiogram (ECG) by spontaneous or drug-induced ST segment elevation in the right precordial leads (V1-V3), often referred to as a type-I BrS pattern [1]. This electric alteration can cause syncope and sudden cardiac death (SCD) in a structurally normal…

    Epigenetic Regulation and Aging

    The role of epigenetic alteration in the pathophysiology of many diseases and its age-associated impacts on the course of an individual’s life is striking! There is a strong and crucial ongoing dynamic interaction between genetics and epigenetics that is associated with the complexity of aging processes. Epigenetic mechanism is referred…
