Inheritance and Genetics of Osteogenesis imperfecta, type 3
Genetics of Osteogenesis imperfecta, type 3:
Osteogenesis imperfecta, type 3 is a genetic disease that is usually inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, although dominant inheritance has also been documented. Osteogenesis imperfecta can also be caused by new mutations in the collagen genes in people without a family history of the disease.
About inheritance and genetics:
Inheritance of Osteogenesis imperfecta, type 3 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.
