Hurler syndrome, Fabry disease involves an abnormal accumulation of substances within lysosomes. However, the lysosomes of individuals with Fabry disease show an abnormal accumulation of lipids. The defective enzyme is α-galactosidase A, which is a lysosomal enzyme that functions in lipid metabolism. This defect causes cell damage, especially to the kidneys, heart, and eyes. The gene that encodes α-galactosidase A is found on the X chromosome. Let’s suppose a phenotypically unaffected couple produces two sons with Fabry disease and one phenotypically unaffected daughter. What is the probability that the daughter will have an affected son?
