Genes hold DNA that are responsible for giving instructions in the production of proteins.Mutations in genes may cause failure in the working of proteins leading to a condition called genetic disorder.These disorders may be inherited form parents or may occur at any point of lifetime.Genetic disorder may result in the addition or reduction in the number of chromosomes.
The four groups of genetic disorders are Single gene disorders, chromosome abnormalities, mitochondrial disorders, and multifactorial disorders. The four main ways of inheriting an altered gene are autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, X-linked dominant and X-linked recessive. Genetic disorders may or may not be heritable. In non-heritable genetic disorders defects may be due to mutations in the DNA.
