What are the sex related traits?
Sex linked traits are either autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, X-linked dominant, X-linked recessive, or a very small number are Y-linked. See the related links for specific examples of characteristics of sex-linked traits.
Sexlinked traits are alleles that reside on the X or Y chromosomes but generallly refer to alleles on the X chromosome that do not have a matching allele on the Y chromosome. Sex-related traits would be any characteristic displayed by individuals of a particular sex. These traits, while primarily controlled by the sex chromosomes can be greatly modified by many factors on other chromosomes and during development.
Genes for sex-linked traits can be found on the sex chromosomes - X and Y. Almost all sex-linked traits are determined by the X chromosome, because it is much larger than the Y chromosome and can thus carry more genes. A few sex-linked traits are known on the Y chromosome, including - believe it or not - hairy ears.
In 1910, Thomas Hunt Morgan discovered the sex linked traits to chromosomes. Sex linked traits are the traits controlled by genes located on the sex chromosomes. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes 22 of these pairs of homologous chromosomes are called autosomes. The 23rd pair of chromosomes is called the sex chromosomes and is indicated by the letter x for females and the letter y for males. If you are female then your sex chromosomes…
Sex-linked traits are found on sex chromosomes (X and Y in humans) - which means that the different sexes have different chances of having the trait. For example, if a gene is located on the Y chromosome (which few are, as it is quite small compared to the X chromosome) - then only males can have that gene. Sex-influenced traits are traits that are expressed differently in the different sexes, despite them having the same…
Sex- linked traits are those where the genes are found on the X and Y chromosomes. Colorblindness and male pattern baldness are the most well-known sex-link traits. Women have two X chromosomes. Men have one X and one Y, but the Y chromosome has fewer genes than the X. These differences help account for different patterns of inheritance than non-sex-linked traits.
