Congenital disorder of glycosylation, type ib
How is congenital disorder of glycosylation type 1B inherited?
We all inherit two copies of each of our genes from our parents. One copy comes from our mother and one comes from our father. Congenital disorder of glycosylation type 1B (CDG-Ib) is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner. This means that both copies of the MPI gene must contain a mutation in order to show symptoms of the condition.
In order to learn more about the gene involved in CDG-Ib, people can speak with a geneticist or a genetic counselor. Genetic counselors in the United States can be found on the National Society of Genetic Counselors website. Genetic counselors in Canada can be found at the Canadian Association of Genetic Counselors website.
