A male with an X linked recessive genetic disorder has children with a female who does not carry the disease?

1. could any of their children have the genetic disorder?
2. could any of their children be carriers for the disorder?

Punnet squares, huh? Haha.

1. No, in terms of drawing the actual punnet square, none of their children will actually have the disease itself.

2. Yes. The chances they will be a carrier is 50%.  (+ info)

Is the genetic disorder aniridia a sex linked disease?

Is the genetic disorder aniridia a sex link disease, if so what sex is the carrier for the disease?

This is not a sex-linked disorder but, it is a rare, congenital absence or partial absence of the Iris. It is autosomal dominant trait or recessive hereditary pattern. It affects the eyes.
I hope that this is helpful.  (+ info)

How is Congenital Heart Disease Genetic? Is it domminant or recessive, sex-linked ect???

I need to know as much as I can about the genetics of Congenital Heart disease. Please help!

In most cases, the causes of congenital heart disease are unknown. Genetic and environmental factors and lifestyle habits can all be involved. The likelihood of having a child with a congenital heart disease increases if the mother or father, another child, or another relative had congenital heart disease or a family history of sudden death. In 2004, researchers identified a chromosome deletion that might explain some of the genetic causes of certain congenital heart diseases.

While only a small proportion of congenital heart lesions currently have identifiable gene markers, the number is growing rapidly. The next decade of research into congenital heart disease will see an exciting convergence of the disciplines of developmental biology, genetics and paediatric cardiology, and, we hope, will not only go further towards answering the question “Why did this happen to us?”, but also provide more secure grounds for genetic counselling and intervention.  (+ info)

How do you know if a genetic disease is sex linked?

ask your physician  (+ info)

What are some disorders or diseases that are linked to low education?

I am trying to write a paper about why a good education is necessary, and I need to know what some disorders or disease are that link to low education. I've already written about Dementia, but I can't find anything else.

Please help!!

I would assume diabetes, because of diet.
and the schizophrenia one is true yes..  (+ info)

Are birth defects such as Autism linked to genetic abnormalities and age increasing likelihood?

I read something that stated as a women ages the chance increases, however, my thinking is that if the gene is not in the pyramid the age factor would not be as likely to come into play. Please prove answer with links to research done by professionals. Any related link/comment is welcome.

Most autism is not a birth defect. The whole age thing is just one study that is not being considered important by most who are successfully reversing the symptoms of autism. Very few genetic abnormalities have been discovered in a small percentage of those with autism. I can not say the cause, only what is reversing symptoms: ridding pathogens and toxins. My children are recovered from autism. You can Google "abstract maternal age autism" or "abstract genetic autism" to find the studies you are looking for. But, to learn how to reverse autism symptoms, which does take quite a while, you will only get that answer from parents and doctors who have actually done it. How it is reversed is currently the closest clue as to how it develops.  (+ info)

Is baldness a x linked genetic disease?

If your dad is bald is it a good chance you will go bald>?

no, actually it is not x linked, or you would see a great many more women with baldness. It is called male pattern baldness because it is linked with the y chromosome. If you have family members with male pattern baldness, you have a fifty fifty chance of developing the same.  (+ info)

What is the difference between autosomal and sex (x)- linked diseases?

  (+ info)

what are respiratory diseases in general and how are they linked to obesity?

like a definition and why are they common in overweight people xx
thanks :)xx
also this is not meant to offend anyone x

I'm gonna guess it's because generally overweight people aren't treating their bodies very well. So they not only are at risk for respiratory illnesses, but circulatory illnesses as well.  (+ info)
