Celiac autosomal recessive?

Celiac autosomal recessive?

Possibly: There are several gene-markers which make a person more likely but not certainly to develop celiac disease. It is certainly not sex-linked. Perhaps there are still other genetic markers or mutations required for one to develop the full-blown disease. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Genetic disorder hht?

Genetic disorder hht?

HHT is genetic: Hht also known as hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia is a genetic condition that causes differences in how blood vessels are formed causing so-called arteriovenous malformations (avms) which on skin are called teleangiectasias, thus name of condition. Currently three genes are known to cause it. Nih site has good info: http://ghr.Nlm.Nih.Gov/condition/hereditary-hemorrhagic-telangiectasia. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Hows patau syndrome inherited?

Hows patau syndrome inherited?

Not inherited: Patau syndrome, or trisomy 13, is not inherited, in that a baby does not "get it" from either parent. It is usually caused when the egg does not divide properly at the time of fertilization. This accident causes a baby to get an extra number 13 chromosome in every one of its cells. Trisomy 13 is rare, but a very serious condition. Most babies with it die before birth or shortly after birth. ...Read more

What are dominant vs recessive gene diseases?

What are dominant vs recessive gene diseases?

See below: With a dominant gene trait, the child only needs to receive one copy of the abnormal gene. So, they have a 50% chance of getting the gene. With a recessive gene, the child needs 2 copies of the gene. So, they have a 25% chance of having both genes. ...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 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 marfan's syndrome a genetic mutation?

Is marfan's syndrome a genetic mutation?

Yes: Yes it is a mutation in the fbn1 gene on chromosome 15. This gene is responsible for providing the instructions for making a protien called fibrillin which becomes part of microfibrils. Microfibrils are important for providing the strength and flexibility of connective tissue. Connective tissue provides strength and flexibility to bones, ligaments, muscles, blood vessels and heart values. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
