Autosomal Recessive 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
Neither: Celiac disease inheritance pattern is undetermined, there is genetic predisposition though, some individuals who have certain genes are more susceptible to develop the disease than others. Good question, but by HealthTap rules you are a minor! ask an adult to ask on your behalf next time, you need to be above 18 years to be able to register and ask questions, good luck ...Read more
What are the differences between autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease?
Differences: Main differences are---ADPKD shows itself in adults and 1/3 stays silent, 1/3 cause complications like hypertension etc, and 1/3 progress to end stage renal disease. ARPKD --- on the other hand manifests itself in pediatric population, in fact soon after birth, almost always involves kidneys bilaterally and requires dialysis for survival. Good news-- ADPKD is dominant therefore never skips generat ...Read more
If you mean....: Is the beta globin gene transmitted on a sex chromosome (either x or y), the answer is no. The beta globin locus is autosomal, and classical sickle cell disease (hgbss disease) displays autosomal recessive inheritance. Boys and girls are equally likely to inherit the beta-s allele from an affected or carrier parent, and if they inherit a beta-s allele from each parent, they will have disease. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there a difference between autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease?
Yes: The dominant form occurs mostly in adults. It is inherited but it takes time to show up as a diagnosable disease in middle to later age. Depending on your luck you either have it from your parent or not( 50% chance).The recessive form could be carried by seemingly healthy persons and when manifests as a disease in the offspring, it shows up at a much earlier age. ...Read more
basically yes: The mutation that causes sickle cell disease is a recessive mutation in that you need two copies of the changed gene to have the disease (or one copy plus another mutation on the other gene like beta thalassemia, hemoglobin c, hemoglobin e, etc). If you only have one copy, you have sickle cell trait. ...Read more
