Is sickle cell disease recessive or dominant?
Sickle cell disease is a recessive trait. And it's pretty rare.
Overdominance is when the heterozygote has an advantage over both the recessive and dominant homozygotes. Sickle cell disease is an example of this. When the individual is homozygous for the sickle cell allele, sickle cell disease is shown. When the the individual is homozygous for the wildtype allele, they appear normal. However, when the individual is heterozygous, he or she appears normal and will also be resistent to malaria.
What is an inherited autosomal recessive disorder of the blood where an individuals red blood cells are sickle shaped rather than disk shaped?
Is sickle cell anemia dominant recessive x-linked recessive a chromosomal error or a multi-factorial trait?
If the sickle cell trait were a dominant trait rather than a recessive one could it still be balanced polymorphism?
Sickle-cell anemia is a disease passed by autosomal recessive inheritance What is the likelihood that a person who has two parents with the disease will be a carrier of the defective gene?
sickle cell anemia is caused by a recessive allele. so for it to affect someone, it means that the person must have received both recessive alleles from their parents. Being a carrier means that you have the recessive allele from one of your parents, but you have a normal dominant allele from the other parent, that means you are not affected by it but you are carrying it.
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 harmful and can almost never turn into sickle cell disease.
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…
