Autosomal Dominant Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy "Autosomal dominant" signifies a pattern of inheritance in which an affected individual has one copy of a mutant gene and one normal gene on a pair of autosomal chromosomes. Individuals with autosomal dominant diseases have a 50-50 chance of passing the mutant gene and therefore the disorder onto each of their children. Examples of autosomal dominant diseases include Huntington disease, neurofibromatosis, and polycystic kidney disease.
