Abstract
The mechanism(s) for the origin of jumping translocations (JTs) are unknown. To assess the possible involvement of telomeric sequences in the jumping process, metaphases of a patient with hydrops fetalis having a JT were analyzed for the presence of interstitial telomeres. Telomere DNA sequences were detected at the junction sites of the donor and the recipient chromosomes. Interstitial telomeric sequences have so far only been detected in JTs involving chromosome 15q in patients with Prader-Willi syndrome. Our finding of interstitial telomeric sequences in a JT with a chromosome different from chromosome arm 15q in a patient without Prader-Willi syndrome implies that telomere sequences may be common to all telomeric JTs. The possible role of telomeric sequences as a cause of the observed chromosomal mosaicism is discussed.
