About 5,000 purines (A’s or G’s) per day are lost from DNA of each human cell when the N-glycosyl bond between the purine and deoxyribose sugar-phosphate is broken. This is the most frequent type of lesion and leaves the deoxyribose sugar-phosphate with a missing purine base. 2. Deamination of cytosine to uracil. If the U is not corrected back to a C, then upon replication instead of the occurrence of a correct C-G base pairing and U-A base pairing will occur instead. 3. Pyrimidine dimerization.

3. , males are hemizygous for X-linked genes so that there is no backup copy of the gene). 4. Males usually die (a genetic lethal). 5. Heterozygous females are mildly to overtly affected (never clinically normal) depending on the skew of the X chromosome inactivation. 6. Homozygous females (double dose) are overtly affected. B. Genetic Risk Assessment. The genetic risk associated with an X-linked dominant disorder is as follows: 1. Example 1. Affected heterozygous mother and normal father. In this example, the mother has the disorder (XDX) and the father is normal (XY) because X-linked dominant disorders are usually lethal in males.
