When found, the chromosome on which the abnormal gene resides can be identified, and the linked marker, which may be the gene itself, is used to detect genotypes likely to become phenotypes. There have been three generations of marker loci used for genetic linkage mapping. The first was the RFLPs described above, followed by the micro-satellites. More recently the single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs, pronounced ‘snips’) have been used for the same purpose of tracking genetic variants in pedigrees.

With the former, the neurotransmitter combines with the receptor, leading to opening of the ion channel. With the latter, G-protein is activated, leading to a secondary messenger cascade. The image also shows how the intracellular activations can feed back, affecting ion channels (Webster, 2002) are intracellular molecules which carry the steroid to the nucleus. Ligands (transmitters or synthesized chemicals that act on receptors), which are agonists, antagonists, partial agonists (exhibiting less than a maximal response) and inverse agonists (leading to the opposite response to a full agonist) have been identified, depending on the receptor type.

Bacteria) and then subsequently isolated and purified. Once isolated, complementary DNA (cDNA) can be chemically sequenced, introduced into a host cell to produce encoded protein, or hybridized to genomic DNA to examine the structure of the genes encoding for the target protein. Complementary DNAs are made from mRNAs, prepared from the tissue of interest, and then propagated in vitro to form cDNA libraries. A gene probe is a fragment of DNA that detects its complementary sequence. Often such cDNA probes are produced from animal protein, and for most diseases they are not specifically related to a disease gene, but may be linked to it genetically.
