Inheritance and Genetics of Osteogenesis imperfecta, type 2
Genetics of Osteogenesis imperfecta, type 2:
Osteogenesis imperfecta, type 2 is a genetic disease that most often occurs sporadically, which means the family has no apparent history of the disease-causing mutation. Other cases are inherited in an autosomal dominant manner.
About inheritance and genetics:
Inheritance of Osteogenesis imperfecta, type 2 refers to whether the condition is inherited
from your parents or "runs" in families.
The level of inheritance of a condition depends
on how important genetics are to the disease.
Strongly genetic diseases are usually inherited,
partially genetic diseases are sometimes inherited,
and non-genetic diseases are not inherited.
