Customer SpotlightTeasing Out Fine Details from the Tangled World of Chromosomes
Normal human cells contain 23 chromosome pairs, each encoding the genetic information of life as well as passing on inheritable traits from parents. Chromosomes are tightly folded into origami-like structures that are mind-boggling in their complexity, yet elegantly unfurled and refolded during cell division or mitosis. Tiny errors during mitosis can cause the formation of aneuploid cells containing an abnormal number of chromosomes and lead to miscarriage and health disorders such as Down syndrome. Additionally, these mistakes have been linked to tumorigenesis and accelerated tumor growth rates.
