______________________________ __ _______________________________ Your name Your TA's name BioGD2810 Genetics Fall 2009 Quiz #10 Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most frequent form of liver cancer. In one patient, formation of the tumor was associated with at least eight kinds of genetic alterations: (A) Mitotic recombination (B) A deletion of a chromosomal region (C) Trisomy (D) A duplication of a chromosomal region (E) Uniparental disomy (UPD)* (F) A null point mutation (G) A hypermorphic point mutation (H) Monosomy *You have not yet learned about UPD. As the name implies, these are situations in which cells contain two copies of a chromosome from one parent and no copies from the other parent. UPD requires two mistakes in chromosome behavior (for example, during mitosis one chromosome could be lost, and then in a descendent cell the remaining chromosome could undergo mitotic nondisjunction). For parts i-iii below, circle all correct answers.
