Ethnic Differences in Fertility and Assisted Reproduction

During the last 10 years, experiences have proven that the premiums of fertility fluctuate in several ethnic teams. Ethnic ameliorations additionally play an important function within the end result of assisted reproductive expertise (ART) cycles. within the usa, minority groups--African americans, Hispanics (mainly Mexicans and imperative Americans), East Asians (Chinese, eastern, Koreans, Philippinos) and South Asians (Indians, Pakistanis, and Bengalis)--have considerably decrease probabilities of dwell births in comparison to Caucasian girls.

Sample text

Dr Veronica van Heyningen and I in the early stages, and Dr Bostock more recently, have selected a highly resistant line derived from mouse PG19/T3 cells (Fig. 11). This line now grows in 10-4~-methotrexate and has an enzyme activity 700 times that of the parent line. The original karyotype has 72 mouse chromosomes, of which six are metacentrics. It is therefore nearly tetraploid. The resistant line has three to five very large chromosomes (Figs. 1 1,12). From the G-banding pattern round the centromeres it is apparent that these chromosomes are derived from duplications of two original chromosomes.

One gets the impression that pygmies really resist the transition to agriculture as strongly as they can. But on the whole they probably resist agriculture because they are trained t o hunt, and live in a hunting society which is very different from a farming society. The transition to agriculture is a complete change from all the values and skills that they have learnt. Crick: That is a good example of what I was looking for, namely where the activity is available t o them and some of them even d o it temporarily, but it doesn’t take.

Bodmer: Other people may be able to answer that better than I can. Sol Spiegelman used Q/3 in an in vitro system where he made it keep replicating. There was a sequence which was selected out more rapidly. It is a question of the origins of replication, and we know that reiterated sequences are places where homologies would allow unequal crossing-over to take place. In general terms I think it is plausible. From the observed lengths of replicating units one can calculate that a reasonable fraction of randomly cloned D N A fragments might contain origins of replication, especially if eukaryotic replication resembles what is found in eukaryotic viruses and prokaryotes.
