How likely is a woman to receive a sex-linked trait (like hemophilia) from her grandfather?



The most common form of hemophilia is recessive and X-linked, which means she would have to get it from both parents, which means her biological father would have it too. If her mothers father has it her mother will be a carrier, which means the woman will have a 50% chance of getting the allele from her mother, but unless the father is a patient too the woman won't be affected herself


The daughter will not have hemophilia since the normal blood clotting gene from her mother is dominant. It won't allow the instructions from the hemophilia gene to be sent. The daughter is called a carrier for hemophilia. She has the gene on one of her X chromosomes and could pass it on to her children.
