MUTATION, French law. This term is synonymous with change, and is particularly applied to designate the change which takes place in the property of a thing in its transmission from one person to another; permutation therefore happens when, the owner of the thing sells, exchanges or gives it. It is nearly synonymous with transfer. (q.v.) Merl. Repert. h.t.

Genetic (FISH) analysis on both patients showed the 7q11.23 chromosomal deletion, confirming the diagnosis of Williams-Beuren syndrome.
Furthermore, fusion alone cannot explain chromosomal arm losses in scallops with the haploid number of 19, but chromosomal deletion can (Table 3).
"As in Prader-Willi, there are some syndromes where there usually is tiny chromosomal deletion, and some of the cases don't show such a deletion.
Knoll and Marc Lalande of the Children's Hospital in Boston and their co-workers performed genetic analyses on six families with Prader-Willi children who lack the characteristic chromosomal deletion. In all cases they found the patients had two maternal chromosome 15 segments and no paternal copy -- the result of a rare genetic error during early development.
