What causes Waardenburg syndrome?
Reasons. Variants (also known as mutations) in the EDN3, EDNRB, MITF, PAX3, SNAI2, and SOX10 genes can cause Waardenburg syndrome. These genes are involved in the formation and development of several types of cells, including pigment-producing cells called melanocytes.
Why does Waardenburg happen? Reasons. Waardenburg syndrome most often originates as an autosomal dominant trait. This means that only one parent needs to pass on the faulty gene for a child to be affected.
Is Waardenburg syndrome a birth defect?
People with Waardenburg syndrome may also have an unusual facial shape and other appearance changes, such as premature gray hair. Waardenburg syndrome is a congenital condition, meaning it is present from birth.
Why are Scott’s eyes yellow?
Golden. Every canine shapeshifter, born or bitten, starts with golden eyes. After biting Peter Hale, Scott McCall’s eyes were golden as a werewolf until he ascended to alpha status. Other golden-eyed werewolves include Isaac Lahey, Liam Dunbar and Hayden Romero, all of whom were also bitten.
What color are Scott’s eyes? I noticed that in season 2’s intro, Scott’s eyes were the typical beta golden yellow, but in 3A’s intro, they were more orange, and from 3b onwards, they were red because he had become an alpha. It could have been a foreshadowing/hint that he was about to become an alpha.
