Summary of hemophilia
Summary of Hemophilia

  • Hemophilia is a disorder where your blood doesn’t clot.

  • It is a recessive trait.

  • If a mom doesn’t have the gene for hemophilia and the father does, there son will not carry the trait for hemophilia but their daughter will.

  • Symptoms of hemophilia are excessive bleeding. Other people may experience life threatening hemorrhages with common injuries.

What chromosome is your disorder located on
What Chromosome is your disorder located on?

  • This disorder is located on the x chromosome.

Mode of inheritance
Mode of Inheritance

  • Someone would acquire hemophilia from sex linked traits.

  • If a trait is sex linked, then a gene is only carried by the male or female parent. Not by both.

Explaining alleles
Explaining Alleles

  • An allele is any of several forms of a gene, usually arising through mutation, that are responsible for hereditary variation.

  • Alleles come from a female and male parent.

  • RR stands for dominant alleles. rr is a recessive allele. Rr is the dominant gene over the recessive gene.

  • The dominant gene produces the same phenotype in the organism whether or not its allele identical.

  • The recessive gene produces its characteristic phenotype only when its allele is identical.
