How does inheritance work in x-linked recessive diseases?  

How does inheritance work in x-linked recessive diseases?

In recessive traits, both parents must pass on a copy of the recessive allele for the child to be affected. For a son (xy) to be affected, his mom must pass on the recessive allele (since the dad passes the y and is not a factor). For a daughter (xx), both parents must pass it. ...Read more

Males are more severely affected (they have one x and one y chromosome which lacks genes). Other modes are autosomal recessive (parents carriers), dominant (parent often affected) or mitochondrial (from maternal line). ...Read more
