Has a gene controlling for baldness been discovered? Is that what people say when they mean genetic hair loss?15th April 2018 at 11:55 am #1744
In layman terms they have found a gene that in the X chromosome from (passed down from the mother) that could determine male or female pattern baldness. But genetics isn’t that simple, the gene may not be expressed and we have little information as to HOW the gene codes for baldness.15th April 2018 at 1:05 pm #1745
Yes, there is a gene for baldness and it can be passed down from your mother and father.16th April 2018 at 2:30 pm #1748
I’d agree with the above, there is little known about what the gene actually codes for, only that it is involved in things related to baldness26th April 2018 at 7:30 am #1783
Well technically speaking there are variations on chromosome 20 that makes men more likely to go bald, even if their parents have full heads of hair. Depending the variation on that gene, it can 4x or 7x more likely etc.26th April 2018 at 10:50 am #1784
Ok, that certainly sheds some light. Hope i dont have that 7x multiplier lol28th April 2018 at 6:50 am #1793
This has been proven for some time now, theres no guessing anymore. Its true.28th April 2018 at 9:15 am #1794
It shouldn’t matter if its genetic in all honesty. Youre still trying to influence the part you can.
