In brief: No
No, it isn't. Regardless of the sex of the parent, he or she has a 50% chance of passing the gene on to any children.
It is called an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern. Genetic testing is readily available from athena diagnostics, through your physician's office, if desired. Best regards, rmh :).
