This case study explored autosomal recessive traits. Autosomal recessive traits are traits that are controlled by a recessive gene carried by non-sex chromosomes. These traits are only expressed in individuals who have two recessive genes, one from their mother and one from their father. Mathew Miller was born with a disorder known as Maple Syrup Urine Disease where amino acid builds up in the body and can cause brain swelling and possible death. The fact that neither of Mathews parents, Emma and Jacob, have this disease automatically implies that this is a recessive gene and both parents are carriers. To be a carrier of a disorder means to have the dominant and the recessive gene also known as being heterozygous for a trait. If the gene for this disorder was dominate at least one of the parents would have MSUD, and if only one of them was a carrier then Mathew would not have the disease because a dominate gene would be present in all possible zygotes. Autosomal recessive traits are a major reason for potential parents to know their genetic make up. Mating with a seemingly healthy individual does not insure that offspring will be healthy. If a carrier of a disorder causing gene mates with another carrier for the same disorder there is a 25 percent chance that the offspring will have that disorder.
