Hello, I have a question about the inheritance of the apoe4 gene. If my mother has Alzheimer’s and she has 2 copies of the apoe4 gene and my dead is healthy and has no copy of the apoe4 gene, is it possible to inherit both apoe4 copies from my mother, or can I only inherit 1 copy of this gene?

You can inherit only one copy of the apoe4 gene from your mother.
