Taxon:

Human

Gene:

"IgA deficiency"

Chromosome:

06

Location:

6p21

Description:

Females with IgA deficiency were more likely to produce offspring with deficiency than males were. This might be attributable to a non-genetic maternal effect, that is, the maternal production and transmission of anti-IgA antibodies (linked to IGAD1 on 6p21) which are associated with IgA deficiency. (Vorechovsky I et al, 1999).
