Which chromosome is cri du chat located?
chromosome 7 according to the internet
no, it is not inherited...... it is caused due to missing or deletion of short arm of chromosome 5p itself...... it does not depend on either of the parent. EDIT 90% of Cri du Chat is NOT inherited and involves the deletion listed above. An inherited variation occurs in 10% of Cri du Chat patients. This is the result of one of the parents being a carrier of a balanced chromosomal translocation or inversion involving…
Cri du chat is caused during meiosis (the production of sex cells, such as the egg or sperm) when chromosome number 5 is not aligned correctly when separating and part of chromosome number 5 is chipped of, lost, and not repaired correctly or at all. then this cell merges with the other sex cell and a baby with cri du chat is formed
Cri-du-chat translates to cry of the cat, normally when a child is born with this genetic disorder, they will make cries that sounds like a cat's meow. It tends to be very distinct. The best way to confirm this would be to use the affected persons karyotype. Cri du chat is due to a structural chromosome aberration, specifically a deletion of the p arm on chromosome #5
