Is edwards syndrome dominant or recessive, can it be inherited?

Is edwards syndrome dominant or recessive, can it be inherited?

Neither: It is a trisomy like the more common down syndrome.It can be inherited if a parent was a genetic abnormality. It could be a spontaneous aberration. Genetic testing of both parents should be considered. ...Read more

Why are my eyes different color than my parents' eyes? It's not dominant nor recessive?

Why are my eyes different color than my parents' eyes? It's not dominant nor recessive?

Genetics mostly: Eye color primarily determined by genes from your parents. Blue eye color for instance requires one recessive blue gene from each parent. Brown iris gene is dominant over blue so if child gets blue gene from mom and brown gene from dad then child will have light brown iris rather than blue. Certain diseases, eye trauma, and medications may alter eye color from original eye color after birth. ...Read more

Is there a test to find out which combination of eye colour genes (recessive/dominant/colours) a person carries?

Is there a test to find out which combination of eye colour genes (recessive/dominant/colours) a person carries?

Not yet: You will have to rely on the geneological chart of eye color in your family to get close to this.
At the moment, the isolation of the eye color genes is not high enough on the need chart to be worthwhile - diseases come first. ...Read more

Is lou gehrig's disease dominant or recessive?

Neither: 90-90% of case of ALS are not inherited, it occurs at random at its cause is not known. In 5-10% of cases there is a familial form of the disease. In these 5-10% of cases it is usually dominant (meaning it is only necessary to have one copy of the defective gene) remember however most of the time it is not inherited at all. ...Read more

Is fabry disease dominant or recessive? Any answer appreciated.

Is fabry disease dominant or recessive? Any answer appreciated.

X-linked: It is an X-linked inheritance. That means it is found as a mutation on the X chromosome. Males are XY and so one gene mutation in that X chromosome that affects the alpa-galactosidase enzyme will cause the disease. Females are XX and so if one x chromosome has the mutation, they will often experience a lesser form of Fabry Disease or no symptoms at all. ...Read more

What is the medical definition of autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive?

What is the medical definition of autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive?

Input required: In dominant disorders, the dominant member of the gene pair controls how the gene activities are expressed, so the other gene can carry the same or normal information. In recessive disorders, the normal gene compensates for the bad information in the other gene, allowing a person to function normally unless both genes carry the bad information. ...Read more

Is trisomy 13 dominant or recessive?

Is trisomy 13 dominant or recessive?

Neither: Any defect like trisomy 13, that involves acquiring an extra chromosome, has nothing to do with dominant or recessive genes. It occurs when usually the egg carries 2 rather than 1 of the 13 chromosomes. Fertilization by a normal sperm with one of every chromosome creates an embryo with three # 13's.If the embryo survives pregnancy it emerges as a trisomy 13 infant with all the problems they have. ...Read more

Is edward's syndrome autosomal or sex-linked? Dominant or recessive?

Is edward's syndrome autosomal or sex-linked? Dominant or recessive?

None of the above: Edward syndrome is brought on by an abnormality of chromosome numbers, specifically an extra 18. The abnormal egg with a single chromosome 1-17 & 19-22 + x has a pair of 18's. When the sperm brings a single chromosome 1-22 + x or y then the embryo ends up with 47 chromosomes rather than 46 in every cell. (3-18's) the excess distorts the organ building information & defects arise. ...Read more

Is Down syndrome dominant or recessive?

Is Down syndrome dominant or recessive?

Neither: Down syndrome happens when an extra 21 chromosome is present in all the cells of the body. It happens before conception when the donor egg fails to shed one of its 21 chromosomes in the formation of the egg & the male 21 joins the female pair & creates an embryo with 3 number 21's. ...Read more

I was wondering is Down syndrome dominant or recessive?

I was wondering is Down syndrome dominant or recessive?

No autosomal: Down syndrome happens when an extra 21 chromosome is present in all the cells of the body. It happens before conception when the donor egg fails to shed one of its 21 chromosomes in the formation of the egg ; the male 21 joins the female pair ; creates an embryo with 3 number 21's. It has nothing to do with traits or mutations in the gene code. ...Read more

What is the difference between autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive inheritance?

What is the difference between autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive inheritance?

2 copies of genes: We all have two copies of each gene in our chromosomes. In autosomal dominant conditions you only need one copy of the gene to have the disease. In autosomal recessive conditions you need two copies in order to have the disease. It is called recessive because people with only one copy do not have the disease, that is the conditions recedes or is hidden. ...Read more

Please help? Is the disease gigantism a dominant or recessive gene?

Please help? Is the disease gigantism a dominant or recessive gene?

Neither: Pituitary gigantism results from a pituitary adenoma, an acquired tumor. There are a few dozen genetic syndromes in which a person may be extra-tall; common Marfan's is a dominant; there's a dominant family syndrome in which people are prone to get pituitary gigantism; there's at least one rare autosomal recessive with gigantism with multiple birth defects. ...Read more

Is gestational diabetes a dominant or recessive trait?

Is gestational diabetes a dominant or recessive trait?

Complex disease: Gestational diabetes (gdm), like type 2 diabetes, are related metabolic conditions with strong inherited genetic tendencies --- but multiple genes are involved in their expression (appearance in any person). So gdm is neither a dominant nor recessive trait. Whether a person gets gdm is also strongly impacted by age, weight, exercise levels, dietary factors, which are not genetically determined. ...Read more

Does a dominant or recessive allele cause severe combined immunodeficiency?

Not an easy answer: A person has two copies (or alleles) for each gene. One inherited from each parent. Dominant alleles are associated to clinical manifestations even when the other allele is normal. Two recessive alleles are needed to produce clinical manifestations. One recessive allele and one normal would result in a state called 'carrier', with no clinical symptoms. ...Read more
