Sex-limited genes are genes that are present in both sexes of sexually reproducing species but are expressed in only one sex and have no penetrance , or are simply 'turned off' in the other. This term is restricted to autosomal traits, and should not be confused with sex-linked characteristics, which have to do with genetic differences on the sex chromosomes see sex-determination system. Sex-limited genes are also distinguished from sex-influenced genes, where the same gene will show differential expression in each sex. However, the resulting phenotypes caused by sex-limited genes are present in only one sex and can be seen prominently in various species that typically show high sexual dimorphism. Sex-limited genes are responsible for sexual dimorphism , which is a phenotypic directly observable difference between males and females of the same species regardless of genotype. An example of sex-limited genes are genes which control horn development in sheep:  while both males and females possess the same genes controlling horn development, they are only expressed in males.

Androgenic Alopecia, also known as male-pattern baldness, is the most common cause of hair loss in men. There are three factors that play a role in androgenic alopecia. The genes inherited come both from our mother and father that play a role in male-pattern baldness. Several genes have been implicated. This gene is inherited from our mother and may play a more prominent role in the early development of hair loss.

You may hear about DNA in the news or in conversations. But what is DNA, really? One of the first things many people do in their daily morning routine is glance in the mirror hoping the reflection peering back resembles a human. For those sprouting a healthy mop of hair, this can take quite a while depending on the state of the mop and whether or not a comb can manage the ensuing tumbleweed or if a chainsaw is needed.
