6 21. Lupe grows pea plants in her garden. The pea plants have flowers that can be either purple or white, with purple color being dominant to white color. The peas produced by Lupe's pea plants can also be either round or wrinkled, with round peas being dominant to wrinkled peas. Lupe crosses two pea plants that are heterozygous for both traits. If a gamete from this cross receives a dominant allele for flower color, how does this influence the probability of the gamete receiving a dominant allele for pea shape?

Which of the following describes an allele whose characteristic phenotype is masked by the presence of a second, different allele? A. codominant B. polygenic C. recessive D. dominant 24. Gregor Mendel developed several laws of heredity over the course of his genetic research. What does the first law of heredity, the law of segregation, state about genes? A. Alleles of different genes separate independently of one another during gamete formation. B. Dominant alleles are always more likely to be inherited. C.

What were the genotypes of the parents? A. RR Rr B. Rr Rr C. Rr rr D. RR rr 26. According to Mendel's Law of Segregation, meiosis involves the separation of a parent organism's alleles in order to form gametes. Since the alleles separate into different gametes, only one allele passes from each parent on to an offspring. This segregation of alleles during meiosis increases the chance that an offspring will receive a dominant allele. A. decreases the chance that an offspring will receive a dominant allele. B. increases the genetic variability of the offspring. C. decreases the genetic variability of the offspring. D. 27. AB blood type is an example of.

About one fourth of the puppies have black and white fur (genotype mm). Half of the puppies are blue merles like the parents (genotype Mm). However, one fourth of the puppies are completely white with blue eyes and are completely deaf (genotype MM). What type of inheritance pattern does this most likely display? A. dominant-recessive B. incomplete dominance C. sex-linked D. codominance

If all of the offspring of a homozygous white flowered pea plant and a homozygous purple flowered pea plant have purple flowers, this means that purple flowers are dominant to white flowers. If white flowers were dominant, all of the offspring would have white flowers.

10 2. The genotypes of the plants that were crossed must both have been Yy. A cross between two Yy parents would result in approximately 1/2 Yy offspring, 1/4 YY offspring, & 1/4 yy offspring. Of those offspring, approximately 3/4 (YY and Yy) would express the dominant phenotype. The other 1/4 (yy) would express the recessive phenotype (yy). This is consistent with the results given for the cross. A cross between two YY parents would result in 100% YY offspring that expressed the dominant phenotype. Likewise, a cross between a YY parent and a yy parent would result in 100% Yy offspring that also expressed the dominant phenotype. A cross between two yy parents would result in 100% yy offspring that expressed the recessive phenotype. 3. The genotypes of the plants that were crossed must both have been Yy. A cross between two Yy parents would result in approximately 1/2 Yy offspring, 1/4 YY offspring, & 1/4 yy offspring. Of those offspring, approximately 3/4 (YY and Yy) would express the dominant phenotype. The other 1/4 (yy) would express the recessive phenotype (yy). This is consistent with the results given for the cross. A cross between two YY parents would result in 100% YY offspring that expressed the dominant phenotype. Likewise, a cross between a YY parent and a yy parent would result in 100% Yy offspring that also expressed the dominant phenotype. A cross between two yy parents would result in 100% yy offspring that expressed the recessive phenotype. 4. True-breeding plants are those that produce offspring with the same phenotype as the parents when self-fertilized. This means that the parents must have been homozygous for the trait under study. Whether the green versus yellow pods are controlled by one gene locus or multiple ones, the F1 generation of a cross between homozygous dominant and homozygous recessive parents will always resemble the dominant parent trait. Thus, the F1 generation of this cross will result in 100% yellow offspring.

11 5. The genotype of an organism can be defined as its inherited combination of alleles. The phenotype of an organism, on the other hand, is its inherited physical appearance. 6. An allele is one possible form of a gene that codes for a particular trait. Humans have two alleles for most traits. These alleles can be dominant or recessive. Dominant alleles are always expressed in the phenotype of an organism that has either one or two copies of the allele. Recessive alleles are expressed only if an organism has two copies of the recessive allele. 7. Codominance occurs when two dominant alleles are expressed at the same time. Incomplete dominance occurs when an individual displays a phenotype that is intermediate between the two parents. Polygenic inheritance occurs when several genes influence a trait. Heterozygous is the term describing an individual with two different alleles present for the same trait. 8. The phenotype of an organism refers to the heritable traits, or characteristics, that are exhibited by that organism. Each specific phenotypic trait can be controlled by one gene, multiple genes, or a combination of genes and environmental influences. 9. The principle of segregation states that the two alleles present in the reproductive organs of an organism will be separated, or segregated, into different cells as the gametes (sex cells) form. As a result, each sex cell will only contain one allele for each gene locus. These segregated alleles can then combine with a gamete of the opposite sex type, allowing one allele from each parental gamete to combine to form the offspring. So, if this heterozygous parent (Aa) combines with a homozygous dominant parent (AA), there is a 50% chance that a homozygous dominant offspring (AA) is produced. If it combines with a homozygous recessive parent (aa), there is a 50% chance that a homozygous recessive offspring is produced (aa). If the heterozygous parent combines with another heterozygous parent, there is a 25% chance of producing a homozygous dominant offspring, and a 25% chance of producing a homozygous recessive offspring. 10. If the two alleles of a particular gene present in an individual are the same, the individual is said to be homozygous. If the alleles of a particular gene present in an individual are different, the individual is heterozygous for that trait. 11. An autosomal trait is a physical or biochemical characteristic arising from genes located on chromosomes that are not gender-determining. Traits coded for by genes on all human chromosomes other than X and Y chromosomes are autosomal traits. 12. Polygenic traits are traits that are controlled by more than one pair of genes, so multiple independent pairs of genes have similar effects on the same trait. Human height, body form, and skin color are examples of polygenic traits.

12 13. Carla is heterozygous for the trait of eye color. She has one gene for blue eyes, and one for brown eyes. Since the gene that codes for brown eye color is dominant, the trait for this eye color will be expressed, and Carla will have brown eyes. 14. To produce 50% homozygous recessive plants, one of the parents must have contributed 100% of the recessive alleles to the cross; one parent must have the genotype rr. The other parent must have had one recessive allele and one dominant allele to produce 50% of each characteristic when paired with the recessive alleles from the homozygous recessive parent; this parent must have the genotype Rr. 15. A cross between heterozygous parents would produce ratios of approximately 1 / 4 homozygous dominant (black hair), 1 / 2 heterozygous (black hair) and 1 / 4 homozygous recessive (brown hair). This predicts about 3 / 4 of the offspring would have black hair and 1 / 4 would have brown hair. It is important to remember that probability is not certain, so it would not be unusual to find actual results that vary wildly from predicted numbers, especially in small offspring sizes. 16. Since the rabbits display more than two colors (and more than just variations of a color), it is likely that the rabbits' pattern of inheritance involves multiple alleles. Rabbits actually have four alleles, of which dark gray (black) is dominant to all other alleles and solid white is recessive. 17. Each square represents a segregated outcome. The missing square is a cross between O and O and could only produce OO, which would be known as simply O. 18. The fact that each plant gets only one allele from each parent plant is detailed in the Law of Segregation. In normal body cells there are two copies of each chromosome. Each chromosome has its own copy of an allele, so in a body cell, two different alleles can be present for one trait. However, in gametes, there is only one copy of each chromosome and one allele present. Thus, each new organism receives only one allele from each parent. 19. Typically, there are two alleles for a trait a dominant trait and a recessive trait. The blood type trait, however, has three alleles, which correspond to the blood types A, B, and O. The A and B alleles are dominant to the O allele, but they do not show dominance over each other. The result is that if a person has an A allele and a B allele, he or she will have type AB blood. Mrs. Smith's parents have blood types A and B. Since Mrs. Smith has blood type A, it logically follows that she must carry one A allele and one recessive antigen-free O allele obtained from her mother, who has type B blood. (If her parents had both been homozygous for their blood types, Mrs. Smith could only have had AB blood. Her mom must have been heterozygous (BO) for her blood type in order for Mrs. Smith to have blood type A.) So, if Mrs. Smith's blood type (AO) is crossed with Mr. Smith's blood type (AB), their offspring will have a 50% chance of being blood type A (includes AA and AO), a 25% chance of being blood type AB, and a 25% chance of being blood type B (BO only).

13 20. The genotypes of the plants that were crossed must both have been Yy. A cross between two Yy parents would result in approximately 1/2 Yy offspring, 1/4 YY offspring, & 1/4 yy offspring. Of those offspring, approximately 3/4 (YY and Yy) would express the dominant phenotype. The other 1/4 (yy) would express the recessive phenotype (yy). This is consistent with the results given for the cross. A cross between two YY parents would result in 100% YY offspring that expressed the dominant phenotype. Likewise, a cross between a YY parent and a yy parent would result in 100% Yy offspring that also expressed the dominant phenotype. A cross between two yy parents would result in 100% yy offspring that expressed the recessive phenotype. 21. The law of independent assortment states that the inheritance of one trait will not affect the inheritance of another trait. In other words, alleles assort independently of one another during gamete formation. If genes follow the law of independent assortment, this means that receiving a dominant allele for one trait does not have any influence on the probability of the gamete receiving a dominant allele for another trait. In Lupe's cross, if a gamete receives a dominant allele for flower color, this has no effect on the probability of the gamete receiving a dominant allele for pea shape. 22. A Punnett square is a diagram used by biologists to determine the probability of an offspring having a particular genotype. In a Punnett square, the parental genotypes are written on the outside of the squares and the products are written inside the squares (much like a multiplication table). The Punnett square for a cross between a homozygous dominant pea plant and a heterozygous pea plant appears below. Since all of the offspring possess at least one dominant allele (A), the expected result would be 100% axial flowers (50% homozygous dominant (AA), 50% heterozygous (Aa)). 23. An allele whose phenotype cannot be seen when an alternate allele is present on the other chromosome is said to be recessive, because its phenotype is hidden, or dominated, by the other allele. Recessive alleles are usually designated by lower case letters to indicate that they recede in the presence of a dominant allele. 24. The law of segregation describes the behavior of chromosomes during meiosis. Specifically, the law of segregation says that two alleles representing the same trait will always separate during meiosis so that each gamete will only have one copy of the allele for that trait. In another law, the law of independent assortment, Mendel states that the inheritance of one trait will not affect the inheritance of another trait. In other words, the genes of an organism sort

14 independent of one another in the gametes (e.g., there is no relationship in inheritance between the color of a pea plant and its' height). 25. To produce 50% homozygous recessive plants, one of the parents must have contributed 100% of the recessive alleles to the cross; one parent must have the genotype rr. The other parent must have had one recessive allele and one dominant allele to produce 50% of each characteristic when paired with the recessive alleles from the homozygous recessive parent; this parent must have the genotype Rr. 26. The Law of Segregation states that different alleles for the same trait separate when gametes are formed. Since the alleles separate into different gametes, an offspring could receive a gamete with one allele or the other. Thus, a mother that is heterozygous for brown eyes (Bb) could pass either a dominant brown allele (B) or a recessive blue allele (b) for eye color to her offspring. One allele is no more likely than the other to be passed from parent to offspring. The segregation of alleles during meiosis increases the genetic variability of the offspring. 27. AB blood type is an example of codominance. Codominance is the condition in which a heterozygous individual expresses the phenotype of two alleles. This happens when neither allele is recessive. 28. The merle gene in dogs displays the inheritance pattern of incomplete dominance. Merle dogs usually have a solid base color (black, brown, etc.) and lighter gray or blue patches, with a mottled effect to the fur color and some white markings. The merle gene (M) is a dominant mutation, while the normal gene (m) produces normal colors for shetland sheepdogs. When two merle dogs are bred, it results in some double merles (MM). These double merles do not display the merle color, but are white and can have severe defects, such as eye problems and deafness. Thus, the homozygous recessive, heterozygous, and homozygous dominant genotypes all lead to different results, which makes this an example of incomplete dominance. 29. The fact that the cross of a tall blue flower and a short purple flower leads to four varieties of flowers is an example of the Law of Independent Assortment. Since each allele and trait are sorted independently of each other, any combination of traits and alleles is possible. 30. There are many genetic disorders such as color blindness, hemophilia, and muscular dystrophy that are associated with recessive alleles on the X chromosome. While many females may carry the defective genes, males have the disorders much more often than females. This is because males have only one copy of the X chromosome and females have two copies.

15 If a female is heterozygous (Rr) for hemophilia, she will be a carrier, but will not have the disease because the defective gene is recessive. If a male has the gene for hemophilia, however, he will have the disease because there is no duplicate copy of the gene.
