X-linked mode of inheritance

The X-linked mode of inheritance refers to the inheritance of genes that are present on X-, but not on Y-chromosomes.

Some examples of X-linked, recessive inheritance include:
- Red-green color blindness
- Hemophilia A and B
- Duchenne muscular dystrophy

X-linked dominant inheritance is less common. Some examples include:
- X-linked hypophosphatemia
- Fragile X syndrome
