Diary of a medical scientist

Western Blot of the varying length of CAG repeats on the Androgen Receptor (AR) gene, which is located on the X chromosome at Xq11-12. Kennedy’s disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disease, is found in individuals with a CAG expansion longer than 36 repeats. As it is an X-linked trait, females with one allele with a long CAG repeat expansion only develop mild symptoms.
Apologies for the poor image, but it was taken with my phone, which is quite old.
