The probability that their son has hemophilia is 50%.
There are two types of hemophilia: hemophilia A (sometimes called classical hemophilia) and hemophilia B (sometimes called Christmas disease). Both are caused by a low level or absence of one of the proteins in the blood (called factors) that control bleeding. Hemophilia A is caused by a deficiency of factor VIII, and hemophilia B is caused by a deficiency of factor IX. There is no difference between the two types of hemophilia, except that hemophilia B is about five times less common than hemophilia A.
Hemophilia is an X-lined recessive disease. It is caused by a mutation of the F8 gene as in hemophilia A, and F9 gene as in hemophilia B.
Hemophilia A is the most common form of Hemophilia. Approximately, 1 in 5,000 males are affected by Hemophilia A.
Yes - there are dogs with hemophilia. German Shepards in Europe with hemophilia can be traced back to one dog: Canto von der Wienerau. For more informationon hemophilia and dogs: http://mydogfluffy.com/faq.htm Mice with hemophilia are used to research hemophilia medication and a cure for hemophilia.
If a female was a carrier for hemophilia and married a man who had hemophilia all their sons would have hemophilia and at least half of their daughters would carry it.
Both Hemophilia A and Hemophilia B are X-Linked Recessive.
XhXh - with hemophilia XhXH- carrier of hemophilia
Yes, hemophilia is an autosomal recessive disorder. Hemophilia A and hemophilia B are inherited in an X-linked recessive pattern.
Hemophilia is not contagious.
You get the hemophilia from your mother. When your mother is the carrier of the hemophilia gene, you get the same, if you are male. Half the females will be again the carrier of the hemophilia, when the mother is carrier. You do not get hemophilia from your father.
hemophilia B is also known as Christmas disease because Stephen Christmas was the first patient with the disease, and hemophilia A is just known as classic hemophilia.
No Prince Albert did not have hemophilia. Hemophilia is carried on the X chromosome-so if Prince Albert had hemophilia all his daughters would have been carriers and his sons would have been free of it. Since his son Leopold had hemophilia and only two of his daughters were carriers he could not have had hemophilia.
Hemophilia is blood that does not clot.
Hemophilia A - Factor VIII Hemophilia B - Factor IX Hemophilia C - Factor XI
The karyotype of someone with hemophilia is the same as that of someone without hemophilia. Hemophilia is caused by a mutation in one gene, not a chromosomal abnormality.
Her father has to have hemophilia as well, and the mother is a carrier or also has hemophilia. So if we pretend that the hemophilia gene is "x", you need to have "xx" to have hemophilia. The father must have the genotype "Yx" and the mother has the have "Xx" or "xx".
People with hemophilia are born with it. Hemophilia is a hereditary disease - in other words, it "runs in families" (is inherited). There is another type of hemophilia called acquired hemophilia. Acquired hemophilia results from the development of autoantibodies (mostly of the IgG1 and IgG4 subclasses) directed against clotting factors. Acquired hemophilia can be brought on by reactions to medications such as penicillin, sulfonamides, phenytoin, methyldopa, chloramphenicol, interferon alpha, and others.
Hemophilia is broken into three subcategories; Hemophilia A, Hemophilia B, and Hemophilia C. These subcategories designate a person as having a deficiency of one of three specific clotting proteins. Hemophilia A is the deficiency of the protein called Clotting Factor VIII. Hemophilia B is the deficiency of Clotting Factor IX. Hemophilia C is the deficiency of Clotting Factor XI. "Royal" hemophilia is simply a reference to Hemophilia B and is therefore a result of a deficiency in the Clotting Factor IX protein. It is sometimes called the royal disease because it has been known to have been passed through some royal families throughout history.
Yes. There are several different types of hemophilia. Hemophilia A and B are X-linked, and hemophilia C is an autosomal mutation. Refer to the related link for a Wikipedia article on hemophilia.
Hemophilia (the inability of ones blood to clot) is homozygous - meaning that to have hemophilia you must have the gene from both your parents.
