Trisomy and Human Life

Human life is always guided by the presence and fusion of the male and female chromosomes that give birth to some specific genes responsible for various growths of many body organs. Trisomy is a condition that defines the development of the abnormality in the genetic tissues in the human body; it is a condition where there are three copies in the human body instead of the usual two numbers of some particular chromosomes. This condition or rather disorder is among one of the types of abnormal number in chromosomes otherwise known as aneuploidy.

In the world organism always have sexual reproduction and due to this they have pairs of chromosomes in each of their cells whereby one of the chromosomes has the source from each parent. In these organism then gametes are created and that have only one set of chromosomes; the number differ from one species the other. Now if these chromosomes fail to undergo proper separation then they may end up having second copies of their type; entire copy may also be the result of the gametes that undergo fertilization. 

Several conditions of trisomy are present in the world of biology and one of them could be partial that means there is only one copy of the part of the chromosome in the surrounding. On the other hand full condition will mean that there is an entire copy of the chromosome. This condition can occur with any of the chromosome although in most cases it may results into a miscarriage. Many mothers in their pregnancy stages are advised to be careful so that they are able to present these cases to the experts as fast as possible otherwise the baby may have very slim chances of surviving it.

Trisomy 21 which also known as down syndrome always have a lot more risk to pregnancies and this tend to lead many into having miscarriages at early stages of their pregnancies. Other cases of this condition are very severe even though they can be seen in many live born infants; these ones are very rare in life and they occur only once in a while. The results of this condition are babies being born with several defects in their bodies that can be seen easily. Mothers must be wary of their conditions so that they are able to have better future for their babies by getting adequate knowledge on their lives.
