Could mutated genes pass on to my kids?

Maybe. Your kids get only half their gene pair from you.In some conditions a mutation causes a dominant gene to form, and only one gene would be needed to pass on a condition.(50% risk).Some gene mutations are recessive, requiring a mutated gene from both parents to be expressed.(25% risk if both parents carried a defect).

Please tell me, could mutated genes pass on to my kids?

Yes. We are all thought to carry at least 3-4 copies of a gene variant that would produce a significant metabolic or structural disorder if paired with a similar defect at conception.Most taboos about having kids with close relatives are based on this risk/experience. If you have a defect, the type of risk varies with the genetics involved.Those with dominant defects have 50% risk/conception. Read more...
