recessive

An allele or mutation that is only expressed phenotypically when it is present in the homozygous form. In the heterozygote it is obscured by dominant alleles.

recessive

(Variation and inheritance) describes the variant of a gene for a particular characteristic which is masked or suppressed in the presence of the dominant variant. A recessive gene will remain dormant unless it is paired with another recessive gene

Recessive

A heritable trait tending to be suppressed by a more active or dominant trait. Expressed only when present in an organism in the homozygous condition and which in a heterozygous condition is suppressed by the dominant allele of the pair.

Recessive

Refers to an allele that can only express itself in the phenotype when a dominant allele is not present along with it. Recessive alleles can only express themselves when they are homozygous... that is, when both alleles are recessive, and there is no dominant allele to override them.

Recessive

Recessive: A condition that appears only in individuals who have received two copies of a mutant gene, one copy from each parent. The individuals with a double dose of the mutated gene are called homozygotes. Their parents, each with a single dose of the mutated gene, appear normal and are called heterozygotes, or gene carriers. There are two types...

Recessive

Recessive alleles are expressed only when homozygous. They must have been inherited from both parents before the phenotype with which they are associated can be expressed. At the locus affected the growth or absence of horns, for example, homozygous recessive pp individuals are horned whereas PP and Pp individuals are polled.
