Answer . Well, the easier ones like hair, eyes,smile,walk,talk, mannerisms are visible to the eye. Blood type and other medical traits have to have tests done.
\nSickle cell disease is a chronic illness that comes from two parents who have sickle cell trait. \nThis disease can be passed on if both parents have a sickle cell trait & gives that child each trait. \nThe sickle cell trait is important because one must know if he/she is a carrier. If you carry …this trait, most likely you will not be sick. It is only when you have children that knowing if you carry the trait is vital. Your child could be born with a painful, chronic, underexposed illness that will require that you have more knowledge than most doctors. Arm yourself with knowledge & get ready for a long fight for justice. ( Full Answer )
Yes, people who are "White" can carry sickle cell trait. Sickle cell diseases are actually a broad group of hemoglobinopathies (genetic blood disorders) that affect over 250 million people around the world, including people in Africa, North & South America, the Mediterranean and Middle East, South… Asia, and Europe.. Sickle cell trait is not a disease or illness - it is merely a descriptive term that indicates a person has inherited on "normal" hemoglobin gene (Hb A) and another "abnormal" hemoglobin gene (Hb S). Some individuals with sickle cell trait are at increased risk for sudden death if they are dehydrated or exposed to high altitudes, but this occurs rarely.. If two individuals who have sickle cell trait (Hb AS) mate, then there is a 25% chance with each birth that they will have a child with sickle cell anemia (Hb SS); a 25% chance that they will have a child with normal hemoglobin (Hb AA); and a 50% chance that they will have a child with sickle cell trait.. Sickle cell trait occurs in approximately 1 in 12 African Americans; 1 in 1400 Hispanics, and nearly 1 in 100,000 Whites. ( Full Answer )
Answer . INHERITED TRAIT . ANSWER:. It is an attribute of phenotype not a genotype.
If you have the trait you do not have the disease, however if your blood type is AS and you marry someone with the blood type AS your child might be SS and have the sickle cell disease. Or your child could get the blood type AA and not have the trait at all but if they get AS they do not have the di…seasebut they have the trait. ( Full Answer )
The principle of independent assortment refers to the situation whereby the inheritance of one trait does not affect the inheritance of another trait. Traits are usually passed from one generation to anther through the genes.
sickle cell trait is a gene inherited from one parent which gives partial immunity to malaria and but is unlikely to develop into sickle cell anemia. The same gene inherited from BOTH parents causes Sickle-cell anemia, a blood disorder in which the body produces abnormal type of hemoglobin… in red blood cells and can be deadly. ( Full Answer )
Yes. There is a 1 in 4 chance that a child can contract sickle cell with the remaining having a chance to get the trait or being normal.
The traits that you received from your parents, the traits that your children will receive from you, and their children theirs, and so on and so on is written genetically in your DNA. DNA is basically a record book that stores all the information. Genes specifically have that information, which is i…n DNA. ( Full Answer )

In a heterozygous condition (Hb S-A) the disease is much milder or asymptomatic and is called sickle cell trait. Lab diagnosis of sickle cell is based on three observations 1 sickling of red cells under deoxygeneted conditions. 2 precipitation of hb S in a special medium. 3 hb electrophoresis.
It's possible that they have it in their genome, even if they don't express it, i.e. even if you can't see it. For example, you may have blonde hair even if your parents have brown hair. Also, if you don't see anything of your parent's traits, then it's possible that you got traits from your grandfa…ther or grandmother or ancestors. ( Full Answer )
in sickle cell trait you don't actually have the disease. you are only able to pass the disease to your kids if you marry a person with sickle cell or that also has the trait. sickle cell disease is when you actually have the disease. you can pass it to your kids if you marry someone with the trait …or the disease. if you marry someone without a trait or disease then your kids will most likely have the trait.

The symptoms for sickle cell ANEMIA are breathlessness, fatigue, chest pain, rapid heart rate, delayed growth or puberty, abdominal pain, weakness, joint pain, vomiting, fever, excessive thirst, and bloody urination. If you think you have this serious disease contact your doctor immediately!!!
You are white but inherited sickle cell trait because of inter racial marriages in the family If you get a transfusion from someone with the trait can you have children with sickle disease?
Well, you canÂ´t be white if you have interracial marriages in your ancestors, so the questions is quite illogical. But anyways a blood transfusion doesnÂ´t have anything to do with what your children will inherit from your genes... for example, if you are a AB+ and receives a O- blood transfusi…on, itÂ´ll have nothing to do with your future children, itÂ´s impossible to a AB+ to conceive a O- child, and vice-versa.

Because some traits, such as blue eyes, are recessive. For each trait you get a pair of genes, one from each parent and you only get the recessive trait if you get a copy of that gene from both parents. If you have one dominant, eg brown eye, gene you get that. So say your parents both have brown …eyes, we know that they must each have at least on brown eye gene but they could have two. If they each have one brown and one blue eye gene they could both passs on the blue eye gene and you would have blue eyes. Howeve, conversely two people with blue eyes cannot have a brown eyed child, unless there is by gene mutation. ( Full Answer )
If you have sickle cell trait, you would have a few disformed red blood cells in your body. If you have sickle cell disease, almost all of your red blood cells are disformed. :(
No. The trait that causes sickle cell anemia is a recessive trait, which means that if both parents have the trait, there is a 1/4 chance their child will have it. The child can be a carrier however and not display symptoms, but there is no way for a child to get sickle cell from parents that don't …have the gene. ( Full Answer )
No it is most likely but it is not guaranteed. Both of my parents don't have widows peaks yet i have a widows peak.
All organisms have DNA as their information macro molecule. When a cell divides during meiosis, four haploid celsl are obtained from each diploid cell which are then passed on to the next generation. Offsprings have one copy of DNA from mother and other copy from father. Depending on which allele is… dominant, phenotype or genotype changes will result in the offspring. ( Full Answer )
yes - no its not because a sickle cell is basically a diseased cell that is shapped like a sickle.. a disease in bloodcell - it cannot get as much oxygen as healthy blood cells

Babies carry the DNA of both carries in their cells and so they exhibit traits from both parents. Some traits are more dominant than others however.
Half their children will have sickle cell trait - the mother has a normal beta-globin allele and the beta-S (sickle) allele. Half her gametes therefore get the mutant allele, but all the gametes proiduced by the father have the normal allele, so half the children get two normal alleles, half get one… of each type of allele ( Full Answer )
sickle cell trait is caused by two recessive alleles - meaning both partns must give resessive trait DNA o their child. - sickle cell anemia dose not have a benefit - or if it dose it is out waysd by the fact that people with sickle cell have very low blood oxygen as their blood cellsare dis-formed.… however, if there is only one allele- ie they have A and b alleles for sickle cell. then they are more immune to malaria. a deadly parasite passed by misquotes in tropical countries.

each sperm cell could either have the dominant or the recessive allele for that trait
The life expectancy of children born with sickle cell disease is shortened, although medical advancements have improved their lifespan considerably. These people have two alleles (copies) of the gene for sickle cell. This is called homozygous for sickle cell. They will need frequent trips to the d…octor and hospital for what is called sickle cell crisis and for other symptoms. Those people born with sickle cell trait (the one you are asking about) have only one allele for sickle cell and one normal allele. This is called heterozygous for sickle cell. They are also called carriers, meaning they carry the gene and could pass the sickle cell gene to their children. These people do not normally show signs of disease and have a normal life span. In some cases, however, if their body is very stressed (for example, with another disease) they can have symptoms or have sickle cell crisis. Sickle cell trait usually only becomes a problem if a person with sickle cell trait marries another person with sickle cell trait. The chance of a child of theirs being born with sickle cell disease is 25%, while 50% of their children will be carriers and 25% will be normal. Remember that these are only chances. In real life you can't predict what any particular child will be. People who have sickle cell trait often chose to be tested with their spouse when they decide to have children, so they know what to expect. If only one spouse has the trait, then they don't have to worry, as all their children will be healthy. ( Full Answer )
well I'm 18 yrs old and i have sickle cell trait. i can tell you that there are not that many here are some: -don't exercise for a prolonged time i did this a couple of times and when i stopped to catch my breath i felt very dizzy like if i was going to faint -make sure your hydrated all day to ens…ure you red blood cells are constantly moving -and last you will probably have some acute migraines or have tiny headaches sometime out of nowhere i hope my advice helps you better understand make sure to get your partner tested ( Full Answer )
No. Many people become confused with that because the Sickle Cell trait is most common in Africa where the population is more black than any other race.
No, since one is made up solely of their parent's genes, this is impossible. There are such things as dormant genes (may go by many names). This means that even though the parent has it, the gene is not active in this parent's bodily system. There are many situations in which someone can inherit a t…rait that has been passed down, yet not obviously present to the point in which it has been discovered. So, with this said, if a child has a trait, this trait must be present in one of both of the parents. This holds true even if the trait does not appear to be present. ( Full Answer )
Sickle cell trait can not lead to sickle cell disease. This is because the gene for Red blood cells are dominate over the gene for sickle cell. There for if you have sickle cell you can have some minor symptoms but usually you don't even know you have sickle cell trait. Sickle cell trait is rarely h…armful and can almost never turn into sickle cell disease. ( Full Answer )
Some of the symptoms that come with sickle cell trait can include fever, as well as an acute form of cell degeneration that can happen throughout the body.
Without genetic modifications there is no way off spring will inherit all traits from one parent. But, if scientists modify the DNA and it becomes identical to one of the parents it would be called a clone.
A parent may only pass the gene for Huntington's if they HAVE Huntington's. It is transmitted on a Dominant gene. If you do not HAVE Huntington's. it is not possible to pass it to your children. My wife inherited the gene from her father. Our sone and daughter inherited from their mother. It can be …from either parent, but only if that parent has HD. ( Full Answer )
The sickle cell trait is that you dont have the whole thing you have half of it which is called the trait
Yes, every animal inherits traits from both parents. The puppy may look more like, for example, its father than its mother because the dominant gene for a certain trait from the father overpowers the recessive gene from the mother.
Sickle cell trait occurs when a person inherits a sickle cell disease gene but does not develop symptoms. Sickle cell disease is a blood disorder in which the body produces an abnormal type of the oxygen-carrying substance hemoglobin in the red blood cells. Normal hemoglobin is called hemoglobin A, …but people with sickle cell disease have only hemoglobin S, which turns normal, round red blood cells into abnormally curved (sickle) shapes. Normally, a person inherits two genes (one from each parent) that produce beta-globin, a protein needed to produce normal hemoglobin (hemoglobin A). A person with sickle cell trait inherits one normal beta-globin gene (hemoglobin A) and one defective gene (hemoglobin S). People with sickle cell trait rarely have symptoms due to the condition because they also have some normal hemoglobin. But they can pass the sickle cell gene to their children. A person in whom both beta-globin genes are abnormal (they produce hemoglobin S) has sickle cell disease, which can cause serious problems. Both parents must have either the sickle cell trait or the disease itself for a child to have sickle cell disease. ( Full Answer )
the child would only inherit the trait not the disease because only one of the parents has the disease .
Traits are inherited by the punnet square in the genetics. Its all about the Big and tiny Rr. If its BIG then its dominant. If its small then its NOT dominant. Its simple.
Offspring must inherit traits from its parents because it parents contained genes that were dominant and survived. the genes passed from parent to offspring are important because they are the dominant genes of survival. they passed of survival genes to help their offspring live longer.
No. Instead of being flexible and disc-shaped like normal red blood cells, sickle cells are more stiff and curved in the shape of the old farm tool known as a sickle - that's where the disease gets its name. The shape is similar to a crescent moon.
All the traits of a newborn animal come from one of their parents, so I could say everything. :P Nothing is created anew, information from two individuals is just combined in a new way.
Inheritance all traits is independent, according to the Law of inheritance, unless there is linkage in the genes.
You are born with this trait. If you had both copies, instead of one, you would have the disease. There is no way to get rid of it. Think about any children you have and be sure the person who will be the other parent doesn't carry the trait or have the disease.
Why was only one of the parents characteristics for a trait expressed while the other seemed to be lost?
The one that seemed to be lost was actually a recessive trait,which could turn up again in the next generation.
eather . a.. Law of Segregation. c.. Law of Dominance. b.. Law of Independent Assortment . d.. Law of Heritability.
If your parent had a tattoo, it does not mean that you wouldinherit this trait. Tattoos are not inherited they are somethingthat you choose to have done. Just because your parents liketattoos, it doesn't mean that you will like them too.
Put simply, inherited traits are thosepassed down by your parents and are found in your genes e.g. bignose, big ears, little feet. Aquired Traits are traits that are notpassed down but instead "aquired" since birth. An example of thisis: scars, pierced ears, the length of your hair, the loss of alim…b. ( Full Answer )
What would happen to a baby in the womb if the mother has sickle cell disease and the father has the sickle cell trait?
This condition is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, which means both copies of the gene in each cell have mutations. The parents of an individual with an autosomal recessive condition each carry one copy of the mutated gene, but they typically do not show signs and symptoms of the conditi…on. This is the genetic make up of the father. The mother has both mutated genes. The baby has a 50:50 chance to have sickle cell anemia like the mother but also to have just the trait like the father. The baby will have either sickle cell anemia or sickle cell trait. The chances are 50/50 %. ( Full Answer )
