Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for G-6-PD is
What does this mean?
Your genotype indicates that you carry the genetic mutation of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency.
How Is Your Genetic Risk Calculated?
This result is based on the SNPs(single nucleotide polymorphism)that are associated with G-6-PD.
Possible Inheritance Modes for G-6-PD
There is one inheritance mode of G-6-PD. Inheritance mode is how a gene will be passed down from parent to offspring.
X-linked recessive disorders are also caused by mutations in genes on the X chromosome. In males (who have only one X chromosome), one altered copy of the gene in each cell is sufficient to cause the condition. In females (who have two X chromosomes), a mutation would have to occur in both copies of the gene to cause the disorder. Because it is unlikely that females will have two altered copies of this gene, males are affected by X-linked recessive disorders much more frequently than females.
