Autosomal Inheritance Pattern

Autosomal inheritance describes the patterns of genetic transmission related to genes located on autosomal chromosomes. Autosomal: the gene responsible for the phenotype is located on one of the 22 pairs of autosomes (non-sex determining chromosomes). Autosomal recessive traits is one pattern of inheritance for a trait, disease, or disorder to be passed on through families. Mutations of a single gene come via autosomal or x-linked inheritance. Each type may come in recessive or dominant form. The majority of patients have one of several mutations in the PRPH2 gene (6p21. 1-cen) and the inheritance pattern seems to be autosomal recessive (CACD2).

Autosomal Inheritance Pattern

  • Inheritance Patterns for monogenic genetic disorders Explaining inheritance Autosomal Recessive Inheritance.
  • Patterns of Inheritance is located on a non-sex chromosome (autosome), the inheritance is called autosomal.
  • Genes are inherited from our biological parents in specific ways.
  • Autosomal dominant is one of the ways that traits and or disorders can be passed down through generations in families.
  • Inheritance patterns can be autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive or X-linked recessive.
  • Genes are inherited from our biological parents in specific ways.
