Mendelian segregation of normal CAG trinucleotide repeat alleles at three autosomal loci
Macmillan, John C., Voisey, Joanne, Healey, Sue C., & Martin, Nicholas G. (1999) Mendelian segregation of normal CAG trinucleotide repeat alleles at three autosomal loci. Journal of Medical Genetics, 36(3), pp. 258-259.
Segregation ratio distortion (SRD) with preferential transmission of expanded CAG alleles has been reported in Machado-Joseph disease (MJD/SCA3), spinocerebellar ataxia type I (SCA1), and dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA). We have examined the transmission frequencies of alleles in normal heterozygotes at these disease loci in 377 pairs of twins and their parents and find no evidence for SRD.
