Scientists have discovered a genetic link to baldness that helps explain why some men may inherit their shiny pates from their fathers. Tests on more than 1, bald men revealed two gene regions that, active together, make a man seven times more likely to lose his hair. The findings give scientists a much clearer picture of the genetic causes of male pattern baldness, which affects roughly a third of men by the age of

Genes are inherited from our biological parents in specific ways. One of the basic patterns of inheritance of our genes is called X-linked recessive inheritance. X-linked inheritance means that the gene causing the trait or the disorder is located on the X chromosome.

What are the genetics of male pattern baldness? Unfortunately the genetics of androgenetic alopecia male-pattern baldness is not really well understood. The more complex the biology behind a phenomenon is, the more difficult is going to be to find all the genetic factors.

Genes are segments of deoxyribonucleic acid DNA that contain the code for a specific protein that functions in one or more types of cells in the body. Chromosomes are made of a very long strand of DNA and contain many genes hundreds to thousands. Except for certain cells for example, sperm and egg cellsevery human cell contains 23 pairs of chromosomes.

Yes, hair loss is genetic. Not only can you inherit similar hair loss patterns from your parents, but you can also inherit a sensitivity to DHT dihydrotestosteronea male sex hormone that causes hair follicles to thin out and miniaturize over time, which is what leads to male pattern baldness. The androgen receptor AR gene creates the receptor on hair follicles that interact with testosterone and DHT, and if your receptors are sensitive, hair loss can occur.

Instead of settling for socks, coupons, or tacky sweaters, families all across the nation have been giving each other a more exciting holiday gift — DNA testing kits. For this installment of myth busting, we will explain hereditary hair loss and unpack how accurate these widely popular DNA testing kits actually are. Sometimes, the myth gets more specific — if your grandpa started going bald when he was 25 than you should expect to start losing hair by then; so buckle up and enjoy college.

Sex linkage is the patterns of inheritance and presentation when a gene mutation allele is present on a sex chromosome allosome rather than a non-sex chromosome autosome. They are characteristically different from the autosomal forms of dominance and recessiveness as they are different depending on the sex of the individual. Since humans have several times as many genes on the female X chromosome than on the male Y chromosomeX-linked traits are much more common than Y-linked traits.

From bald eagles to Bruce Willis, bald spots are a common sight and part of the fabric of our society. Both men and women experience hair loss, but research has historically focused primarily on male subjects and efforts to link the two have shown that female pattern hair loss is not predicted by the same genetic markers. Because of this, significantly less is known about female hair loss.

What if my father had the trait for baldness and my mother didn't? What chance will I or my future offspring be carriers or have the trait? If your father is bald as well, then those chances go up even more!
