Cklers dystrophy. The mutation analysis of this gene demonstrates that different mutations within a single gene can result in different phenotypes. [30] Because the TGFB1/BIGH3 gene is expressed in other tissues, these results suggest a cornea-specific mechanism causing the accumulation of mutant keratoepithelin. 3 Schematic diagram of the keratoepithelin gene. D1 to D4, homologous domains. Arrows point to the location of the reported mutations. [32] Mutations in rhodopsin demonstrate how a gain-of-function mechanism can cause a retinal degeneration.

In somatic cells of females, only one X chromosome is active; the second X chromosome is inactivated and becomes a Barr body. X inactivation has been associated with the geneticist Mary Lyon, and has been called Lyonization. Inactivation of either the maternal or the paternal X chromosome occurs early in embryonic life. In any one cell, the inactive X may be maternal or paternal, and once the X is inactivated, it remains inactive. Because females inherit two copies of the X chromosome, they can be homozygous for a disease allele at a given locus, heterozygous, or homozygous for the normal allele at the locus.
