"Autosomal Recessive Sickle cell anemia is an autosomal recessive disease, caused by a point mutation in the gene of 11th chromosome, coding for β-polypeptide chain of hemoglobin molecule, thus producing a defective protein 'HbS' instead of normal one 'HbA'."

males and females are equally affected. "Recessive" means that two copies of the gene are necessary to have the trait, one inherited from the mother, and one from the father.

A person who has only one recessive gene is said to be a "carrier" for the trait or disease, but they do not have any health problems from "carrying" one copy of the gene.
