uniparental disomy

UPD

The inheritance of two copies of a chromosome from one parent and none from the other parent. UPD results in a normal number of inherited chromosomes but with inadequate contribution of genetic material from one of the parents. It may result in the expression of recessive genes, as in Prader-Willi syndrome.

UPD

abbrev. UNIPARENTAL DISOMY.
