Unformatted text preview: st -/- is fully epistatic to bt-/-(i.e. bt-/-; st -/- animals have white shrunken toenails). Smooth white: bt +_ ; st +/_ (3/4) x (3/4) = 9/16 Smooth blue: bt-/-; st +_ (1/4) (3/4) = 3/16 Shrunken white: bt any ; st -/- (1/4) = 4/16 Shrunken blue: 0 2. You find a dominant gain-of-function allele of BT that gives purple toenails ( bt D ) . Based on the pathway shown above, predict the phenotype of a bt D/+ ; st -/-a) shrunken white b) shrunken purple c) shrunken blue d) nonshrunken white e) nonshrunken purple f) nonshrunken blue...
