Disease caused by dominant allele located on x chromosome?
Asked by VAIBHAV SRIVASTAVA | 2nd Jan, 2013, 08:47: PM
X-linked dominant inheritance is a mode of genetic inheritance by which a dominant gene is carried on the X chromosome. This inheritance indicates that a gene responsible for a genetic disorder is located on the X chromosome, and only one copy of the allele is sufficient to cause the disorder when inherited from a parent who has the disorder.
An example is Vitamin D resistant rickets - X-linked hypophosphatemia.
Other examples are:?
- Rett syndrome?
- Fragile X syndr?ome
- Most cases of ?Alport syndrome
- CharcotMarieTooth disease
