Answer to Question #60180 in Genetics for Sanjukta Ghosh

Question #60180
What are silent carrier traits?
Expert's answer
Silent carrier trait is the term used to heterozygous persons who do not show symptoms of the disease caused by recessive trait, and non-specific medical analyses cannot show the difference. For example, in silent carriers of alpha-thalassemia allele, the hematological analysis does not show difference between the carrier and homozygous dominant person.
