Using RFLP-PCR, Mini Sequencing and STR Techniques in Preimplantation Diagnosis of Spinal Muscular Dystrophy in Vietnam

Background: Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is one of the most common autosomal recessive disorders in children after Duchenne muscular dystrophy affecting approximately 1 in 11,000 live births. There is no effective therapy for SMA; however, broadening our knowledge about the molecular genetics of the disease is resultant to develop potential…

BMP-6 and SMAD4 gene expression is altered in cumulus cells from women with endometriosis-associated infertility

Introduction Oocyte competence and quality depend on communication between the oocyte and the cumulus and theca cells. In the preantral phase, the members of the transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) superfamily are responsible for this communication and play an important role in folliculogenesis. Members of the TGF-β superfamily are related…

Mechanisms involved in the transmission of genetic diseases from mother to child

Mitochondria are the organelles that produce most of the chemical energy needed by the cell. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) contains 16,569 nucleotides that can be mutated. Some of these mutations can lead to the development of mitochondrial diseases. While nuclear DNA (the well-known double helix, which encodes most of the genome)…

Role of GPs in changing landscape of fertility treatment

PRIMARY care has for years been the cornerstone of the Australian health care system and GPs represent an integral part of it. As they are frequently responsible for the first, and sometimes only, contact of individuals with the health care system, they can profoundly affect a patient’s experience, expectations and…
