Autosomal Dominant Genetic Diseases

Autosomal Dominant Genetic Diseases: Introduction

The non-sex chromosomes 1..22 are called "autosomes" and the resulting conditions called autosomal genetic diseases. (For comparison, the other conditions affecting the sex chromsomes X and Y are called x-linked genetic diseases.)

Dominant genetic diseases only require a single copy of the gene to be damaged. This error need only be inherited from one parent in order to get the disease. The bad gene from one parent dominates the other parent's good gene. There is no such thing as a "carrier" of a dominant disease because everyone who has the genetic error gets the disease.
