Vertically inherited trait.

Post by Miss_Me » Wed Jan 10, 2007 3:52 pm

I'm a little confused in the way to answer this question. Can someone help me please?


Both X-linked dominant and autosomal dominant traits are inherited vertically in families.
What 4 characteristics might you look for that would help you distinguish between X linked dominant and autosomal dominant inheritance in a set of families all showing the same vertically inherited trait?



Thanks

if everyone has both, there is no way to determine it except with a southern blot i guess
