Write the genotypes of the parents of a child suffering from thalassemia. State the cause of this disease.
Answer:

The genotypes of the parents of a child suffering from thalassemia are as follows :
Mother : ThB ThB+
Father : ThB ThB+

 

Thalassemia is an autosomal - linked recessive disorder, which results in reduced rate of synthesis of one of the globin chains of haemoglobin. The disease is controlled by a single pair of allele, ThB and ThB+. ThB codes for normal ß-protein and ThB+ codes for an abnormal ß-protein. Only homozygous abnormal individuals for ThB+ (ThB+ ThB+)show the disease phenotype.
