When a mother gives birth (naturally) to a child who has it, the mother may transmit it during birth
Yes. Most cases of achondroplasia are associated with a dominant mutant form of the FGFR3 gene. Thus, if someone with achondroplasia has children with a person without achondroplasia, 50% of the offspring would be predicted to inherit the disorder. If two people with achondroplasia were to have children, 50% would inherit acondroplasia (i.e. would be heterozygous for the mutant FGFR3 allele), 25% would be normal, and 25% would inherit two copies of the mutant FGFR3 allele, a condition which is almost certainly lethal.
whats the name of the test that diagnoses achondroplasia
There are no medications for achondroplasia
no Ellie Simmonds parents has not got achondroplasia
yes, achondroplasia is hereditary and if one of a parent has it you have 50% chance to inheriting it.
Yes ,we are looking for a cure for achondroplasia. Please help! Amita
Mutations in the FGFR3 gene are the cause for achondroplasia (short-limbed dwarfism).
Achondroplasia is caused by a mutation of the fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) gene.
Yes People with achondroplasia can be born to parents that do not have the condition. This is the result of a new mutation.
