An inactive X chromosome which is found in females is referred to as?
the inactive X chromosome found on the nuclear membrane.
XX is the 23rd chromosome pair found only in females.
Both Male and Female have the barr body, but in different chromosones. The above statement is INCORRECT. Barr bodies are formed mainly in females due to females having two X chromosomes while males normally have only one X chromosome (and a Y chromosome). The Barr body is formed from the inactive X chromosome. Males can sometimes be born with a mutation of having too many X chromosomes, in which case Barr Bodies would also be… Read More
In both males and females there are 22 perfectly matched chromosomes. The somatic cells in humans total 46 chromosomes. Females get the XX sex chromosome while males get the Y chromosome.
Yes, male wolves have the same number of chromosomes as females. There is no research at this time on the DNA found in the X chromosome and the Y chromosome and the Wolf. The Wolf has 78 chromosomes.
All the chromosomes. In human males, there is a unique Y chromosome in addition to X chromosome that is found in females. In other species, such as in some reptiles, this may be reversed.
Because females don't have any Y chromosomes. Females are XX; males are XY (one of each).
The gene responsible for the blue receptors is found on chromosome 7 - which is evenly distributed among males and females. The sex-linked forms of colour blindness have genes located on the X chromosome (meaning males are more likely to be affected than females).
The allele for color blindness is found on the x chromosome more males suffer from red-green color blindness than females because?
Because females with two X chromosomes ( XX ) have a statistically better chance of not expressing this recessive trait than men do with a XY sex chromosome pair. No way to stop the expression of this trait without a dominant trait carrying chromosome.
Most color deficiencies are sex linked, meaning the defective genes are on the sex chromosome. In this case, the X chromosome is affected. Since males only have one X chromosome, all males with this particular defective genes will have this condition. Females have 2 X's, it's unlikely that both X's have bad genes at the same time.
Yes. It is found as a mutation on the X chromosome (a sex chromosome) so it is sex linked. The gene for Fragile X is carried on the X chromosome. Because both males (XY) and females (XX) have at least one X chromosome, both can pass on the mutated gene to their children.
No. It seems to be found in most groups equality. Since it is found on the X chromosome, males have one copy. Females have two copies. Since it is found on the X, females have a "good" gene that sort of covers the defective one. Males don't have that chance. So many more males have this than females.
An interesting fact about Rett syndrome is that it is normally found in females because females have two X chromosomes. If a male were to get Rett Syndrome they wouldn't survive because males have only one X chromosome.
One can not find a chromosome ON a cell; however, one may find a chromosome inside the cell, specifically the nucleus (during interphase, but the chromosome is actually referred to chromatin in this state). If the cell is undergoing mitosis or meiosis, the chromosome may be found anywhere throughout the cell as the nucleus does not exist during periods of divisio.
The body cells of most humans have 46 chromosomes, which can be arranged into 23 pairs. One chromosome in each pair comes from the mother and the other chromosome comes from the father. Of the 23 pairs, 22 pairs (the body chromosomes, or autosomes) are the same in males and females. The 23 rd pair, called the sex chromosomes, is different in males and females. In females, the sex chromosomes are the same and are… Read More
The allele for color blindness is found on the x chromosome more males suffer from red-green color blindness tha females because?
Plato Users: A and B.
If a gene is found on the X chromosome ( and, less commomly on the Y chromosome), it is said to be a sex-linked trait. Because the gene controlling the trait is located on the sex chromosome, sex linkage is linked to the gender of the individual. Usually such genes are found on the X chromosome. The Y chromosome is thus missing such genes (See Diagram above.). The result is that females will have two… Read More
its because of the x and y chromosomes. the x is a large chromosome that is present in both males and females (women have XX) while the y chromosome is a smaller chromosome that is only found in males ( men have XY). if your a male and your father has a disorder then you have it because there is no other chromosome to suppress the y chromosome. women have two x's so one x… Read More
The unit of heredity found on a chromosome is called a gene.
Chromosome is found in plant cell.
The genes for sex-linked traits can be found on either the X or Y chromosome. They are most commonly found on the X chromosome.
Hemophilia itself is really just a genetic disorder. It causes problems with blood coagulation and people with the disorder tend to bleed a lot if cut, hence the name "bleeders." The disorder is caused by a mutation in the factor VIII gene, leading to a deficiency in factor VIII. (Factor VIII is a protein that is associated with blood clotting.) The deficiency in the blood clotting factor causes the affected person's blood to clot improperly… Read More
Autosome are homologous chromosome, so that mean they are found in a female chromosome.
A chromosome because DNA is found inside of chromosomes which is found in the nucleus of a cell.
The normal and mutant beta-globin genes are found on chromosome 11.
They are found in the nucleus in our cells.
lol dude, you name it in the question. an x-linked gene is found on the x chromosome. x-linked genes are a type of sex-linked gene. this means that females (xx) are less likely to display the recessive form of the characteristic than males (xy) since males only have one x chromosome, and whichever allele they receive is the one that is displayed.
Somatic chromosomes. ( remember that the X sex chromosomes of females do not determine sex either. only the SRY region usually found on the Y chromosome determines the male sex. Two XX chromosome and the child is default female. This is not a dichotomy, as variance exists here )
In humans, red-green colorblindness is a recessive sex-linked trait. It is found on the X chromosome, not the Y. Because, males only have one X chromosome, they have a much greater chance of having red-green colorblindness. Females would have to be homozygous recessive in order to have red-green colorblindness.
There is no specific region found near the middle of the chromosome. However, the centromere is the region of DNA that present at the primary constriction of the chromosome. In most depictions of the chromosome this is shown in the middle, but it is not necessary that it has to be in the middle.
The chromosome is found in an animal and plant cell.
Chromosome isn't an organ, but actually an organized structure of DNA and proteins that is found in cells. A chromosome contains genes, elements, and other sequences found at a nuclear scale. it can't be found because it is everywheren in the human body.
The Y chromosome is found in males only. Females have XX chromosomes whereas males have XY chromosomes. That is why they are different, because an XY cannot be female and an XX cannot be male.
The gene codes for a protein called huntingtin found on the short arm of chromosome 4.
The proteins inside a chromosome are called Histones.
Nail Patella Syndrome is found on chromosome #9. If you search "what chromosome is nail patella syndrome on?" in Google, then it will give you a bunch of websites that have a bunch of info. about it. hope this helps. :-)
Yes, genes are found in chromosomes.
yes because there are then two chromosomes in the cell that line up (for example chromosome 17 to chromosome 17)
There are 100-1,000 genes found on a chromosome. MANY ... for PLATO
CF (Cystic Fibrosis) is usually found on chromosome 7.
They isolated three genes on chromosome 15 -- GABRA5, GABRB3 and GABRG3
The precise chromosome is not known; future research may yield results.
the allele for colorblindness is ressecive NOT dominant. more common in males because they have one x chromosome and women have two, if a deformity is found on the x chromosome in a woman, it can be masked by the other, but still have some sort of side effects, in a male, since he has one, he is effected the most. he has no other genes to mask it.
bipolar disorder is found on the x-linked chromosome. Since female has 2 pairs of X chromosome. The effect of bad gene is compensated by other pair. Hence it carries to generations without being noticed. Also it is being liked to reproductive cycle of females. Where as male has one X and One Y chromosome. Hence a faulty X has no way to compensate. So if a male has bipolar disorder it is most likely to… Read More
It is a mutated gene called PKD1 located on chromosome 16.
21 st chromosome it is also call Trisomy 21 because the 21st chromosome has three instead of the normal two.
