Example text

Alleles of genes are preceded by an asterisk. Some genes have many possible alleles. This can lead to slightly different variants of the same basic gene product. For any given gene, any individual would have only two alleles present in somatic cells—one on each corresponding chromosome. Thus, in referring to the gene for the ABO blood groups, ABO*Al, ABO*0, and ABO*B are examples of the formal ways for identifying the different alleles at the ABO locus. As an example, a genotype for different alleles of the adenosine deaminase gene may be written as ADA*1/ADA*2 or ADA*l/*2 to depict the two alleles that are present.

To describe known genes at a specific locus, genes are designated by uppercase Latin letters, sometimes in combinations with Arabic numbers, and they are italicized or underlined.

These are enforced by proteins, such as cyclins, that enforce cell cycle checkpoints, the maintenance of G1 state, and prevent cells from leaving G1 and progressing through the cell cycle. Mutation of one or more of these genes results in loss of cell cycle control, and cells progress through the cell cycle and divide in an uncontrolled way, leading to cancer. The mitotic index is a measurement of cell proliferation that measures the ratio of mitotic (dividing) cells to nondividing cells within a population.
