Chromosome Theory of Inheritance Sutton and Boveri (1902) Mendel’s factors (genes) behave like chromosomes during meiosis Genes are in pairs; so are chromosomes Alleles of genes segregate equally into gametes; so do homologous chromosomes Different genes assort independently; so do different chromosomes Hypothesis: Genes are located on chromosomes Proof of the Chromosome Theory of Inheritance came from the study of sex-linked genes in Drosophila

Mutant phenotype (white eye) was inherited in the same manner as the X chromosome, with rare exceptions. X P X w X w X w+ Y Expected F1s: Red-eyed females and White-eyed males. However, a white-eyed female or a red-eyed male appeared 1/2000 times.

Calvin Bridges proposed: aberrant chromosome segregation ( non- disjunction ) caused rare exceptions.

Recognizing X-linked inheritance X-linked recessive traits -reciprocal crosses don’t give same results -more males than females have phenotype -offspring of affected male are not affected X-linked dominant traits -all daughters of affected males are affected -sons of affected males are not affected
