Chromosome examination or karyotyping is a test that study the number and shape of a person's chromosomes in order to find abnormalities. Chromosomes are thread-like structures inside each cell nucleus and contain the body's genetic plan. Each chromosome contains thousands of genes in certain locations. These genes are responsible for a person’s congenital physical characteristics and they have a significant impact on growth, development, and functioning of the body.
Humans have 46 chromosomes, present as 23 pairs. 22 pairs are found in both sexes (autosomes) and one pair (sex chromosomes) is present as either XY (in males) or XX (in females). Normally, all cells in the body that have a nucleus will comprise a complete set of the same 46 chromosomes, except for the reproductive cells (eggs and sperm), which contain a half set of 23. This half set is the genetic contribution that will be passed on to a child. At conception, half sets from each parent combine to form a new set of 46 chromosomes in the developing foetus.
A chromosomal karyotyping examines a person's chromosomes to verify if the right number is present and to ascertain if each chromosome appears normal.
