Chapter 6 Gene Interaction A goal of genetic analysis is to identify all the genes that affect a specific phenotype and to understand their genetic, cellular, developmental and molecular roles. Interactions between the alleles at one locus Types of Dominance o Students should know two examples for each of the following types: o (One example from the disease sickle cell anemia and ot??????? Complete Dominance o One allele is completely dominant to another when the heterozygote has the same phenotype as one of the two homozygotes. BB=black, Bb= black, bb= brown This is complete dominance at the level of coat color The dominant allele is said to be the one found in the homozygote that has the same phenotype as the heterozygote. Incomplete dominance o One allele is said to be incompletely dominant to another allele when the heterozygote has a phenotype that is intermediate between the two homozygotes. Codominance One allele is said to exhibit codominance with respect to another allele when each allele produces its full phenotype in the heterozygote. Polymorphism in the loosest sense means that there exists in a population more than one discretely different forms of a character. **In the most qualified sense polymorphism refers to the existence of more than one allele at a locus in a population. If there are only two such alleles, ?? There must be at least two alleles where their proportion is greater than .01 Multiple allelism refers to the existence of more than two alleles at locus. A locus that exhibits multiple allelism maybe polymorphic. insert at 21:20 The ABO blood type system in humans provides examples of polymorphism, multiple allelism, complete dominance and codominance. An antigen is anything an antibody will bind to. Usually its proteins on the surface on the cell.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
