Where do Baldness Genes Come From

Baldness Genes - Where Do Baldness Genes Come From? In a world that is increasingly growing occupied with physical beauty, baldness is seen as one of the biggest cosmetic problems. When one starts balding, he or she looks for treatment methods such as hair transplant in Turkey and excuses or factors to blame their baldness on – such as genetic factors. It is a fact that baldness can be a hereditary problem and it can be passed on to offspring from dad or mom. According to a few studies, up to 80% cases of balding can be attributed to hereditary factors. Find out where do genes for baldness come from.


One of the main baldness genes arrive from maternal grandpa, although this gene does not account for all cases of baldness. 2 of the latest studies have pinpointed baldness to 20p11, a small area on the chromosome 20. This research could explain why some people suffer from baldness even when their parents enjoy a full head of hair. Although researchers at SHIFT Hair Transplant clinic are still in the dark about the involvement of the DNA or which part is actually involved, they are sure that bald people usually have a specific form of 20p11. According to a study, the presence of this DNA could raise the risks of baldness in men by as many as 4 times. This can be up to 7 times in men with some other forms of another gene. In another study, a different type of 20p11 was found to be associated. This study concluded that the risk of baldness was up to 3 times in such cases.

The X chromosome

The female chromosome or the X chromosome is the main gene responsible for baldness. Men get it from their moms. According to a 2005 research from the University of Bonn located in Germany, the genetic factor has more dominance on the maternal side. In case your father has a hairy head buy your maternal uncle has a bald pate in his 30’s, it is quite possible for you to follow in the footsteps of your uncle as far as baldness is concerned. However, the actual gene that is responsible for male pattern baldness seems to come from both dad’s and mom’s sides. The genes for baldness can also skip generations and even spare members of the same generation. Thus, it is common to find the younger brother in the family having a bald head in his late 20’s while the older one has a full head of hair.
