42] Although the specific mechanisms responsible for trinucleotide repeat disease are not completely understood, the autosomal dominant inheritance suggests that only one mutant copy of the gene is required and that the repeat in some way has a detrimental effect on the cell. This molecular mechanism should be considered whenever pedigree analysis shows increased disease severity with each new generation. 4 Pedigree illustrating anticipation associated with expansion of a trinucleotide repeat.

Like autosomal recessive traits, the female heterozygote expresses âτ¼50% of the normal level of the protein product. For recessive conditions, this is sufficient for a normal phenotype. Retinoschisis Retinoschisis is a maculopathy that is caused by intraretinal splitting. [48] Female carriers with one normal and one abnormal copy of the gene do not demonstrate any clinical abnormalities. Fifty percent of the male offspring of female carriers are affected by the disease. Mutations in a gene located in the retinoschisis interval and expressed in the retina have been found in a protein that is implicated in cellâ∼ cell interaction and may be active in cell adhesion processes during retinal development.
