Autosomal dominant inheritance
In this example, a man with an autosomal dominant disorder has two affected children and two unaffected children.
Examples of Autosomal Dominant Disease
- Huntington’s Disease (HD) - neurodegenerative disorder characterised by progressive motor abnormality and cognitive deterioration. (More? Student Project)
- Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) - late-onset multisystem disorder characterized by bilateral renal cysts, liver cysts, and an increased risk of intracranial aneurysms. (heterozygous pathogenic variant in PKD1, PKD2, GANAB, or DNAJB11)
