The Jacobs Syndrome: Clinical Case

Received: 15 October 2023;  Published: 28 February 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2401218


This work describes a clinical case of a violation of sex formation in a newborn child with Y-chromosome dysomy. The diagnostic challenges related to Y-chromosome variability and associated anomalies in sex development are being considered. The work presents clinical and laboratory data for Y-chromosome dysomy. It is noted that the challenge in diagnosing disorders of sex development is associated with the polymorphic clinical manifestations of this syndrome. It is noted that the presence of Y-chromosome dysomy is [...]

Exploring Education for Children with 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome: A Qualitative Study of Mothers Perspectives

Received: 26 September 2023;  Published: 28 February 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2401217


22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS) is a complex and widely variable genetic syndrome involving multisystem physical health problems, significant cognitive and psychosocial challenges, all of which may impact upon learning and academic achievement. In the current study, we explored mothers’ perceptions of their child’s learning within early and primary educational contexts. We conducted 3 online focus groups and 1 online semi-structured interview with a total of 9 mothers of children diagnosed with 22q11.2DS. Mot [...]

Molecular Study on Y Chromosome Microdeletion in Male Infertility: A Cross-Sectional Design in Indonesian Men

Received: 09 October 2023;  Published: 27 February 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2401216


Y chromosome microdeletions (YCMs) are one kind of genetic disorder that contributes to male infertility. This study aims to determine the profile of YCMs in the infertile male population in Indonesia. This cross-sectional study was conducted by identifying YCMs testing data on 49 infertile male patients identified with azoospermia and oligoasthenoteratozoospermia (OAT) based on their sperm analysis, who visited andrology polyclinics in several hospitals in Yogyakarta Province between March 2021 to August 2022. Stu [...]

MiRNAs as Promising Therapeutic Targets for Breast Cancer

Received: 27 November 2023;  Published: 26 February 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2401215


Breast cancer (BC) is the most common cause of cancer-related death and is the malignancy most frequently diagnosed in females worldwide. BC incidence is predicted to continue increasing worldwide. Without interventions, annual new cases will reach over 3 million by 2030. Genetic abnormalities account for almost 70% of all BC cases worldwide. Biological pathways implicated include non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). MiRNAs are small non-coding RNA molecules that play a role in post-transcriptional regulation of gene expressi [...]

B5N10 Nanocarrier Functionalized with Al, C, Si Atoms: A Drug Delivery Method for Infectious Disease Remedy

Received: 27 November 2023;  Published: 21 February 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2401214


As proof has recommended a close connection between COVID-19 and neurodegenerative disorders, this article aims to investigate the chloroquine (CLQ) drug as the SARS-CoV-2’s primary protease, which can prevent in vitro viral duplication of all diverse experiments to present. CLQ is an anti-viral drug enlarged by Pfizer, which can operate as an orally effective 3C-like protease inhibitor. In this study, CLQ has been assessed for its effectiveness against coronavirus by trapping it within a boron nitride nanocage (B5 [...]

Artocarpus Communis Seed Regulates P53, IRS, HsD17β2, FTO, and CYP11a Genes in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Rats

Received: 20 November 2023;  Published: 20 February 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2401213


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a prevalent endocrine illness that affects 5-10% of reproductive women globally. It is a multifaceted hormonal disorder characterized by the involvement of numerous molecular mechanisms that contribute to its development. This study investigates the effect of Artocarpus communis seed on the hormonal imbalance and P53, IRS, HsD17β2, FTO, and CYP11a genes expression in the ovaries of letrozole-induced polycystic ovarian syndrome rats. To induce PCOS in 30 female Wistar rats, letr [...]

Exploring the Regenerative Potential of Stem Cells for Treating Eye Diseases: A Review of the New Findings

Received: 27 September 2023;  Published: 31 January 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2401212


The escalating prevalence of vision loss due to eye diseases has instigated a quest for innovative therapies, given that conventional approaches often fall short in repairing and regenerating damaged eye tissues, particularly the retina. Stem cell-based interventions have emerged as a promising avenue, with numerous studies in animal models and human trials exploring their potential to enhance visual acuity. Beyond addressing conditions like age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic retinopathy (DR), stem [...]

Investigating Cytogenetic Profiles in Couples Experiencing Recurrent Implantation Failure Post in vitro Fertilization

Received: 22 November 2023;  Published: 17 January 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2401211


This study evaluates how chromosomal factors affect assisted reproduction techniques (ART) challenges among infertile couples, impacting their chances of conception. Chromosomal abnormalities, a leading cause of pregnancy failure and miscarriages, were investigated in a four-year retrospective study involving 100 patients with a history of infertility and unsuccessful IVF treatment. Among these cases, nine (9%) displayed aberrant chromosomal patterns, including balanced translocations (5%), sex chromosome deletions [...]

Krabbe Disease–To Add or Not to Newborn Screening?

Received: 07 September 2023;  Published: 12 January 2024;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2401210


Krabbe disease (KD), a severe neurodegenerative disorder, has been controversial in the space of newborn screening (NBS) in the United States. Families continue to advocate for the addition of KD to the Recommended Uniform Screening Panel (RUSP) after being declined for the second time in February 2023. Even with significant progress in KD screening tests, uncertainty about the phenotypic presentations, and effectiveness of hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) seems to have impeded the addition of this conditi [...]
