Structured data parsed from Wikipedia. List of mother tongues by number of speakers Each of the languages of the 2001 census subsumes one or more mother tongues. Speaker numbers are available for these mother tongues and they are also included in the speaker numbers for their respective language. For example, the language Telugu (with a total of 81,127,740 speakers) includes the mother tongues of Telugu (with 80,912,459 speakers), Vadari (198,020 speakers) and 'Others' (17,261 speakers). The General Notes from the 2001 census define 'mother tongue' as 'the language spoken in childhood by the person's mother to the person. If the mother died in infancy, the language mainly spoken in the person's home in childhood will be the mother tongue.' languages mother tongues language mother tongues The following table lists those mother tongues that have more than one million speakers according to the 2011 census:

- Dominant and recessive genetic diseases in humans


Structured data parsed from Wikipedia. Dominant and recessive genetic diseases in humans In humans, many genetic traits or diseases are classified simply as 'dominant' or 'recessive'. Especially with so called recessive diseases, which are indeed a factor of recessive genes, but can oversimplify the underlying molecular basis and lead to misunderstanding of the nature of dominance. For example, the recessive genetic disease phenylketonuria (PKU) results from any of a large number (>60) of alleles at the gene locus for the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH). Many of these alleles produce little or no PAH, as a result of which the substrate phenylalanine (Phe) and its metabolic byproducts accumulate in the central nervous system and can cause severe intellectual disability if untreated. PAH PAH The genotypes and phenotypic consequences of interactions among three alleles are shown in the following table:
