Huntington's disease

The causative gene for Huntington's disease, HD, one of the first genes identified to cause an inherited disease, is located on chromosome 4.

Huntington's disease is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion.

The dominant nature of Huntington's disease increases the chance of the disease occurring in offspring.
