Sample text

Affected people are heterozygous for the abnormal allele and transmit this to half their offspring, whether male or female. The disorder is not transmitted by family members who are unaffected themselves. Estimation of risk is therefore apparently simple, but in practice several factors may cause difficulties in counselling families. 1 Pedigree demonstrating autosomal dominant inheritance Parents Aa Late onset disorders Dominant disorders may have a late or variable age of onset of signs and symptoms.

The imprint lasts for one generation and is then removed, so that an appropriate imprint can be re-established in the germ cells of the next generation. The effects of imprinting can be observed at several levels: that of the whole genome, that of particular chromosomes or chromosomal segments, and that of individual genes. For example, the effect of triploidy in human conceptions depends on the origin of the additional haploid chromosome set. When paternally derived, the placenta is large and cystic with molar changes and the fetus has a large head and small body.

Learning disability: mild moderate–severe Malignancy Scoliosis Tuberous sclerosis Example 7 Recurrence of autosomal recessive disorders generally occurs only within one particular sibship in a family. Occurrence of the same disorder in different sibships within an extended family can occur if the mutant gene is common in the population, or there is multiple consanguinity. Many members of the family will, however, be gene carriers and may wish to know the risk for their own children being affected.
