Are lazy eyes inherited dominant or recessive?

Are lazy eyes inherited dominant or recessive?

Depends: The technical term for "lazy eyes" is strabismus. There are many different types of strabismus and the association with inheritance depends upon the particular classification.

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.

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.

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.

I am doing a presentation for my class on down syndrome and I need to know why it isn't dominant or recessive. P.S. I need a simplified answer

Seek info here: Lots of HT doctors have answered this for others - here's a start. Just dig a bit further, but it's a good reply. Source: HealthTap, https://edc1.healthtap. Com/user_questions/22610

Are all autosomal dominant diseases inherited?

Are all autosomal dominant diseases inherited?

Or new mutations: Mendel's laws. For example, many cases of achondroplasia, which an autosomal dominant disease, happen in children of unaffected parents as a result of a mutation in a sperm or egg.

Is angelman syndrome dominant or recessive?

Is angelman syndrome dominant or recessive?

Neither: Angelman's syndrome doesn't follow simple mendelian genetics. Rather, it's due to de novo single genetic mutations, translocational errors, chromosomal abnormalities, or more commonly epi-genetic mutations such as changes in dna methylation.

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.

Hello docs, is achondroplasia dominant or recessive?

Hello docs, is achondroplasia dominant or recessive?

Autosomal dominant: It is an autosomal dominant disorder. There is high risk of spontaneous mutations. See this site for more info. Http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001577.htm.

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.

Can a pedigree trace autosomal recessive or autosomal dominant diseases?

Family tree: If you have enough information, a well filled out family tree can sometimes reveal patterns of inheritance. This includes autosomal recessive /dominant or x linked forms of inheritance.

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.

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.

Is obesity a dominant or recessive trait?

Is obesity a dominant or recessive trait?

Explanation: Neither. Obesity do not have even cleat trait. Too many factors play roles: lifestyle and diet, physical activity are the most important.

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.

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.
