  1. i'm the only one how born with this sydrom in my family all my brother born with good health and all of them are tall and there is me short as if hahah but yeah i'm happy with anything 🤗

  2. I have classic Turner Syndrome. I was diagnosed just after I turned 12. I have to take Growth hormone , and I started estrogen patches not to long ago. But I actually got lucky, as I don’t have any major heart/kidney problems due to TS. I only have short stature and ovary problems. I know I probably won’t be able to have kids when I am older, but I know there are many kids who need a mom , like the ones in foster care. Adoption is awesome y’all! I hope and pray everyone effected by TS is happy and healthy. 🙏

  3. Still struggling to understand something… In normal XX female cells one of the X chromosomes is inactivated anyway, so what exactly causes the symptoms of Turner syndrome?

  4. what is happen when 22x chromosomes of female is fused with 22 chromosomes of male due to failure of disjunction of x and y chromosome?

  5. I’m doing a research paper on Turner syndrome and a question I had to answer was of where and why was it prevalent? If anybody could give me an answer ASAP it would be great thanks!

  6. I am a 66 year old woman with Turner's mosaic and this video provided more technical information than I've ever known about my condition. Really well done explanation and visuals! Thank you so much! Because of my age, I was not diagnosed until my late teens and never was offered growth hormones.

  7. Is there a way they can extend the underdeveloped uterus in late untreated Turner person to enable them to have in vitro pregnancy

  8. Why will the cell line containing 47 XXX/XXY rarely survive? XXX is triple x syndrome and XXY is klinefelter right?

  9. Спасибо большое за отличные познавательные видео, но если не сложно, пожалуйста создавайте русские субтитры🙏

  10. As a human biologist I think that Turner syndrome is highly fascinating as besides symptoms such as short stature or extra skin on the neck (as Osmosis greatly explained) other characteristics such as intelligence are often not affected. It is remarkable to think that the development of people still works despite one chromosome completely missing (if you take into account that mutations in single genes can be lethal sometimes). I am planning to dive deep into prominent human genetic diseases in one of my next videos since this topic is very important and thrilling!
