The chromosome 16 contains so many genes important to development that its disruption is incompatible with life. , 2003). The majority of fetuses carrying chromosomal abnormalities are spontaneously aborted.

In this case, no useful protein is formed. Neurofibromatosis-1 (NF1) is an example of a disorder commonly caused by a nonsense mutation. In NF1 a tumor suppressor, neurofibromin, is not formed. As a result, multiple benign neurofibroma tumors form on the body and in the brain. Children with NF1 also have a high incidence of attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (Ferner, 2010).

Fertilization of this egg, by a sperm with a cell containing the normal complement of 23 chromosomes, will result in a child with 46 chromosomes. This includes two copies of chromosome 21, one chromosome 14/21, and one chromosome 14. This child will have Down syndrome because of the functional trisomy 21 caused by the translocation. Deletions Another somewhat common dysfunction in cell division is deletion.
