50 % chance the child will have it
Depends on the grandparents and their parents.
because of child's mulnutrition
Blindness isn't the type of disease that can "attack" anyone. Its a genetic disease that occurs with the child at birth or over time. it only happens abruptly under special circumstances
Sickle cell disease is inherited, which means it is passed from parent to child. To get sickle cell disease, a child has to inherit two sickle cell genes-one from each parent. When a child inherits the gene from just one parent, that child has sickle cell trait. Having this trait means that you do not have the disease but you are a carrier and could pass the gene on to your children.
Genetic mutations passed from parent to child cause hereditary disease.
Yes- it is transmitted from parent to child by a chromasome.
Recessive is carried by both parentsIn simplest terms, the disease is recessive, so two copies of the gene that cause it are necessary. Both parents have only one copy of the gene, so, they don't have it, but are carriers. A child gets half his or her genes from each parent. If the child gets the bad gene from each parent, the child will have the disease. There is a 25% chance of this happening with every child these parents have.
the child would only inherit the trait not the disease because only one of the parents has the disease
Huntingtons is a genetically inherited disease from a parent. when chromosomes are passed onto a child, the child wont always receive the chromosome containing the gene. But, if they do inherit the gene they will have the disease no matter what, because the disease is dominant. If it was recessive, the child could inherit the disease but not necessarily get the disease.
