Androgenetic alopecia is a type of hair loss that is diffuse, symmetric and progressive affecting both sexes.1 It is an androgen-dependent genetically mediated autosomal dominant disorder with polygenic inheritance
.2 It affects both genders but it is more common in men affecting 50%2 as compared to females affecting only 30%.3 Hair thinning begins between the ages of 12-40 years but the frequency increases with age.
The non-allelic effects revealed that this trait has polygenic inheritance
The class will receive the following laboratory kits: Understanding the Human Genome, DNA Isolation, Eye Color and Polygenic Inheritance
, Genetically Modified Food, a Plasmid Simulation, along with a dihybrid cross poster.
There is no evidence suggesting that epignathus caused by environmental agents, mendelian or polygenic inheritance
. Sporadic chromosomal changes had been reported, but usually, it has not reported to be associated with epignathus.[sup] Chromosomal analysis of this case revealed a normal male karyotype.
According to Peck and Peck (4) many observations have justified polygenic inheritance
theory, such as the increased prevalence of dental anomalies and significant differences in gender predilection.
Very little is known about the polygenic inheritance
of skin colour.
However the larger estimates of the inflation factors do not have to reflect the population stratification (Yang et al., 2011) under especially polygenic inheritance
as was also pointed out by Lee et al.
Congenital abdominal hernia might be due to anatomical variation, polygenic inheritance
or infectious diseases (Tyagi and Singh, 2010).
However inheritance of some traits involves complex genetic phenomena such as co- dominance sex-linked genes and polygenic inheritance
The involvement of multiple genes (termed polygenic inheritance
) has a number of consequences.
refers to conditions determined exclusively by a large number of genes, each with a small effect, acting addictively (i.e.
Researchers also verified that resistance to the pathogen in this population has polygenic inheritance
, is conditioned by both additive and dominance genetic effects, and that genotypes with high resistance were rare in the germplasm at that time.
