Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder that slows down the blood clot process. The liable gene is located on the X chromosome, and since men acquire just one duplicate of the X chromosome, if that chromosome brings the altered gene then they will have the disease. Women have a 2nd, usually normal, copy of the genetics on their other X chromosome, so they qualified of passing on the disease without experiencing its symptoms. Hemophilia is an acquired disease that's characterized by bleeding past what would be expected in a normal individual. Frequently, we think about hemophilia [as] connected with men. Simply put, there are a lot more men that have hemophilia than women. In order to comprehend that hereditary basis is to recognize the basis of sex as it's coded in our genome. So gender is inscribed on a pair of chromosomes, the 23rd set of chromosomes. For females there are 2 X chromosomes, and for men there are a y and an x chromosome. The hemophilia genetics, or coding for the specific blood-clotting aspect, is found on the X chromosome. In men, if the one that's not functioning properly is passed on to a boy, that boy has just one duplicate of the gene on his one X chromosome. His Y chromosome obviously doesn't bring the hemophilia gene, and so that non-working genetics does not have anything for it, and so the person has hemophilia, or has problems with clotting.
