In fact, we do not tolerate this state of affairs, and every normal female is a mosaic. Very early in embryogenesis, every cell in a female embryo makes the independent and random decision to switch off (inactivate or Lyonise) one of her two X chromosomes. Because the process is random, half of her cells will have the maternally inherited X chromosome remaining active and the other half will have the paternally inherited X chromosome remaining active, hence she is a mosaic. The result is that dosage compensation is achieved and the two halves of the population have approximately equal numbers of active genes.

After this exchange of material, the chromosomes lie opposite each other on the spindle, and at anaphase they all move, each going in a different direction so that one of each pair goes into each daughter cell. This is the reduction division and each daughter cell contains only 23 chromosomes, one from each pair. 5 Meiosis I 36 GENETICS IN PRACTICE • Meiosis II: essentially the same as a mitotic division, with the chromosomes lining up on a spindle by their centromeres and the chromatids separating vertically, but meiosis II takes place with 23, not 46 chromosomes.

Deletion) ‘get the cao fft hem at’; (insertion) ‘get the cat sof fth ema t’. These are often lethal as, beyond the mutation, the codons will be completely incorrect. DNA can become mutated by many different mechanisms, ranging from a single substitution of a base to a large-scale chromosomal disruption. Mutations at the level of the gene can be substitutions, additions, expansions, deletions or rearrangements. Substitution of a different amino acid, particularly one of a different type, can cause severe genetic disease.
