Handout #5A Recessive epistasis Example: coat color in rodents A gene = pigment distribution in hair (agouti) A dom. Aa, AA = streaked with yellow a rec. aa = solid B gene = pigment color B dom. BB, Bb = black b rec. bb = brown Dihybrid cross: AaBb x AaBb A expression B expression Phenotvpe Expect: 9 A-B- streaked black gray * 3 A-bb streaked brown cinnamon * 3 aaB- solid black black 1 aabb solid brown brown * streak causes the color to look different to us. Now let's look at C gene which illustrates epistasis.
