Sample text

Pernbrey: In genetic counselling one becomes aware that one must present risk figures but one must also emphasize to the potential parent that it is not just a theoretical figure but an empirical observation: you have recently seen someone who had a ‘bad’ outcome, and also a number of people with the other, ‘good’ outcome. In other words, the couple need to know that the risk of genetic defect is real. The important thing that they then do is to translate a probability into a black-and-white decision: they either will or won’t take the risk.

So far (June 1989), approximately 2000 paternity cases have been resolved in the UK by DNA tests, which have been available only since June 1987. A second major application of DNA fingerprinting has been the establishment of family relationships for the purposes of immigration into the UK. DNA tests are the only proof available to immigrants when the documentation of relationship (such as birth certificates) is insufficient to convince the immigration authorities. The Home Office commissioned a trial of the technology for 36 families, including 103 children, in 1987, through Professor Jeffreys and Cellmark (Home Office 1988).

Jeffreys identified two such DNA sequences which, when used as DNA probes, identify different families of hypervariable minisatellites among the millions of DNA fragments generated by the digestion of human DNA by means of restriction enzymes. The number of repeats of the DNA sequences in each minisatellite provides a characteristic DNA length to the DNA fragment that contains i t . ctively labelled and used to probe a nylon sheet containing size-fractionated human DNA fragments, and this sheet is subsequently exposed to X-ray film, a series of bands develop on the film alongside the track of DNA fragments on the sheet.
