Adamtsl4-related eye disorders

Inheritance

How are ADAMTSL4-related eye disorders inherited?

We each typically have 2 copies of the ADAMTSL4 gene, one from our mother and one from our father. In order to have an ADAMTSL4-related eye disorder, both copies of the ADAMTSL4 gene need to have changes or mutations that make the gene not work properly. This is called "autosomal recessive" inheritance. The changes in the two copies of the ADAMTSL4 gene can be the same change or different. As long as both changes make the gene work lessor not at all, the person will have an ADAMTSL4 -related eye disorder.
