Q: What are the genes that cause male pattern baldness?

A: At this time the genes that actually cause hair loss are still unknown. However, there are two gene loci, recently identified, that appear to be associated with common baldness. The first is on the Androgen Receptor (AR) gene carried on the x-chromosome and the second is a non-sex chromosome 20p11.
