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

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

(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 form of a gene that is masked by the alternate (dominant) form of the gene and is only expressed when the person has two of these non-dominant (recessive) copies. This is also referred to as the recessive allele.

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.

recessive

(re-ses´iv) tending to recede. in genetics, pertaining to phenotypic expression of an allele only in homozygotes, i.e., when the allele is carried by both members of a pair of homologous chromosomes (or hemizygotes, for X-linked traits).

recessive

A quality found in the relationship between two versions of a gene. Individuals receive one version of a gene, called an allele, from each parent. If the alleles are different, the dominant allele will be expressed, while the effect of the other allele, called recessive, is masked. In the case of a recessive genetic disorder, an individual must inh...

recessive

An allele (A) is recessive if the phenotype of the heterozygote (Aa) is the same as the homozygote (aa) for the alternative allele (a) and different from the homozygote for the recessive (AA). The allele (a) controls the heterozygote's phenotype and is called dominant. An allele may be partly, rather than fully, recessive; in that case, the heteroz...

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...
