  Chromosome Translocations
It is estimated that 1 in 625 individuals in the general population carry a balanced chromosomal translocation.
The sex chromosomes are X and Y. Women have two X chromosomes and men have one X and one Y. We inherit half of our chromosomes (23) from each parent in the egg and sperm.
Individuals that carry chromosomal translocations are typically healthy; however they are at an increased risk for infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, and/or having a child with birth defects.

 BBC - Health - Conditions - Chromosomal translocation
A translocation is a condition where a fragment of one chromosome is broken off and is then attached to another.
In a balanced translocation (found in the parent of an affected child, the person doesn't have any additional genetic material - they simply have a smaller than normal chromosome 21 with a piece broken off, a normal second chromosome 21, a chromosome 14 with the broken piece of 21 attached, and a normal chromosome 14.
But if the normal 21 and the affected 14 (carrying material from the broken chromosome 21) are passed on, there is now extra genetic material from chromosome 21 (as the baby will have one normal 21 from each parent as well as the broken piece attached to 14).

 Chromosomal translocation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chromosomal translocation of the 4th and 20th chromosome.
In genetics, a chromosome translocation is an abnormal chromosomal rearrangement caused by the interchange of parts between nonhomologous chromosomes.
Also, translocations can be balanced (in an even exchange of material with no genetic information extra or missing) or unbalanced (where the exchange of chromosome material is unequal resulting in extra or missing genes).

 Robertsonian translocation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Robertsonian translocation is a common form of chromosomal rearrangement that occurs in the five acrocentric human chromosome pairs, namely 13, 14, 15, 21, and 22.
The most frequent forms of Robertsonian translocations are between chromosomes 13 and 14, 13 and 21, and 21 and 22, and occur when the long arms of two acrocentric chromosomes fuse at the centromere and the two short arms are lost.
Their children, however, may either be normal and carry the fusion chromosome (depending which chromosome is represented in the gamete), or they may inherit a missing or extra long arm of an acrocentric chromosome.

The “largest single class” of chromosomal abnormality found in spontaneous abortions are the autosomal trisomies (roughly 50% of abnormal specimens), some of which reveal a maternal age effect.
Monosomy X is the “single most common” chromosomal abnormality found in spontaneous abortions (roughly 25% of abnormal specimens), which usually occurs due to a loss of the paternal sex chromosome (Y chromosome) and is not more common with advancing maternal age.
May result from a 21/D or 21/22 translocation where there are theoretically 6 possible combinations with three of these being lethal and of the other three there is an equal 33% chance of having a Down's syndrome, a balanced translocation (normal appearing as with the parent carrying the translocation) or a normal set of chromosomes.

 Chromosomal translocations involved in non-Hodgkin lymphomas Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine - Find ...
In recent years, a number of genes deregulated by chromosomal translocations have been identified, and the detailed molecular mechanisms by which chromosomal translocations contribute to the pathogenesis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma are beginning to be elucidated.
This type of chromosomal translocation occurs in some types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, such as the t(2;5) in anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), but is best known in acute and chronic myeloid leukemias.
Chromosome translocations in T-cell lymphomas also may arise from analogous errors of T-cell receptor (TCR) gene V(D)J recombination.2 However, somatic hypermutation of V segments is rare, and class switching of the TCR genes does not occur in T cells.

 The invertor knock-in conditional chromosomal translocation mimic - Nature Methods
This chromosomal translocation mimic is applicable to any fusion gene of interest using the set of vectors described here (Fig.
The new invertor mouse model is an additional approach to generate gene fusions, mimicking the consequence of chromosomal translocations, which is fully dependent of expression of Cre recombinase and inversion of a floxed intron-cDNA cassette.
Thus, one motivation for generating mouse models of chromosomal translocations is for potential use as a preclinical setting, prior to their use with patients.

Chromosomal Translocation is the a rearrangement in which part of a chromosome is detached by breakage and then becomes attached to another chromosome (see illustration below).
These are balanced translocation in which genetic material is exchanged without loss between non-homogous chromosomes.
Often, in these cases, the translocated material from one of the homologous chromosomes is deleted.

Although the parental chromosomes were previously reported to be normal in another laboratory, the pedigree was consistent with a chromosomal etiology, and parental blood samples were reevaluated.
On reexamination, one miscarriage and the infant were found to be chromosomally unbalanced, carrying the derivative 7, resulting in partial monosomy for 7q and partial trisomy for 11q.
Since the rearrangement was quite small and subtle, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) using "painting" probes for chromosomes 7 and 11 was used to confirm the balanced state in the fetus.

Down syndrome, in which a baby is born with an extra chromosome 21, is among the most common chromosomal abnormalities, and the one whose effects are familiar to most people.
While such individuals may have the normal number of chromosomes, small pieces of a chromosome (or chromosomes) may be deleted, duplicated, inverted, misplaced, or exchanged with part of another chromosome.
Among the most common chromosomal abnormalities are those that involve missing or extra sex chromosomes (referred to as X and Y).
