Autosomal Recessive A genetic condition that appears only in Disorder individuals who have received two copies of an abnormal autosomal gene
, one copy from each parent.
The FecB gene is a dominant autosomal gene
responsible for the fecundity of Booroola Merino sheep with an additive effect on ovulation rate firstly identified in 1980s (Piper et al.
We observed no difference between males and females for the autosomal gene
topoisomerase II isozyme (3 (TOP2B), located at 3p.
Although some of these lesions could lie in gene-coding sequences on the X chromosome not assessed in this study (approximately 35% of the total) or in autosomal genes
with a male-limited phenotype that in small families mimics X-linked inheritance or they could represent gross genomic anomalies not detectable by this sequencing approach, it is unlikely that such lesions could account for the majority of the genetic defects not yet found.
The ten autosomal genes
encode key proteins for mitochondrial maintenance and function including: POLG1, DGUOK, TP, TK2, SURF1, SCO1, SCO2, COX10, BCS1L, and SLC25A4.
The transfer of autosomal genes
to the Y chromosome may have countered this deterioration somewhat, they say.
Genomic imprinting is monoallelic and involves epigenetically expressed parent-of-origin-dependent inheritance of specific autosomal genes
(mother (egg) or father (sperm)) (Cheng et al.
Genomic imprinting is a parent-of-origin-dependent epigenetic mechanism in which a subset of autosomal genes
are expressed from only one allele (Smith et al.
