Hey, not Y, on the X chromosome. ;)

EDIT: Yes, if the gene becomes homozygote, hemophilia occurs in women too. But I haven't heard that the gene is latel when it is homozygote. All I know is those women often die because of continuous bleeding in mensturation. That was what our genetic prof. said. I don't know if it is right or wrong.

I've got it
The term haemophilia refers to several different hereditary disorders that have similar signs and symptoms. Haemophilia A, or classicai Haemophilia, results from a deficiency of factor VIII (antihaemophilic factor). It accounts for 83% of cases. Haemophilia B results from a deficiency of factor IX. Both types are sex-linked conditions occuring primarily in males. Haemophilia c, a less severe form of haemophilia seen in both sexes, is due to a lack of factor XI. The relative mildness of this form, as compared to the A and B forms reflects the fact that the procoagulant (factor IX) that factor XI activates may also be activated by factor VII

Good explanation. Well done
