ANIMAL MODEL In the course of an ethylnitrosourea mutation study, Guenet (1990) and his group detected a mutation for alkaptonuria in the mouse by the ﬁnding of black wood shavings in the mouse boxes. Affected mice showed high levels of urinary homogentisic acid without signs of ochronosis or arthritis. Montagutelli et al. (1994) demonstrated that the locus, symbolized aku, maps to mouse chromosome 16 in a region of syntenic homology with human 3q. HISTORY Stenn et al. , had alkaptonuria. A phenocopy (a nongenetically produced phenotype resembling a gene-determined one) of alkaptonuria is provided by the ochronosis that develops after the prolonged use of carbolic acid dressings for chronic cutaneous ulcers (Beddard, 1910; Beddard and Plumtre, 1912).
When, with a photograph, the chromosomes from a particular metaphase spread are cut out and arranged into aligned pairs of the same length, the result is called a karyotype. In some cases, the originally assigned chromosome numbers do not reﬂect the actual chromosome lengths. For example, it is now known that chromosome 22 is slightly longer than chromosome 21. However, the original numbers are so entrenched that cytogeneticists have retained them. Some of the chromosomes have distinguishing features other than variations in the location of centromeres.
In Mendelian terminology, this pattern of inheritance was consistent with the interpretation that two recessive factors of a single gene pair were responsible for the condition. Garrod argued that alkaptonuria was inherited as a Mendelian trait and that the buildup of homogentisic acid was the result of a faulty enzyme that, if functioning normally, should have converted homogentisic acid to a different compound. Generally, an enzyme catalyzes the conversion of one substance into another. 2). Biological systems have a large number of such pathways for the production (anabolism) of essential compounds and the breakdown (catabolism) of scores of compounds.
