Carrier

Term Definition
Carrier
An animal that is heterozygous for a certain gene, usually with one copy of the dominant allele and one of the recessive; typically in reference to a genetic condition. In simple recessive defects like AM, an animal that is a carrier would have one normal copy of the allele and one defective copy. This animal would not display the defect, but would pass the defective allele to half of its progeny.
