Unformatted text preview: a. Give the genotypes of Lucy, her brother, her mother, and her father Adenosine deaminase deficiency is an inherited disease in which affected persons are immune compromised. This disease results from an allele (a) that is recessive to the allele for normal immune function (A). Lucy has normal immune function, but her brother has the disorder. Lucy’s mother has the disorder, and her father is unaffected. a.

Give the genotypes of Lucy, her brother, her mother, and her father Adenosine deaminase deficiency is an inherited disease in which affected persons are immune compromised. This disease results from an allele (a) that is recessive to the allele for normal immune function (A). Lucy has normal immune function, but her brother has the disorder. Lucy’s mother has the disorder, and her father is unaffected. Assign inferred genotypes P mother X father (affected) (unaffected) aa A_ F 1 brother Lucy (affected) (unaffected) aa A_ Since brother is aa, must have inherited a allele from father and from mother (i.e. father must possess a allele) a.
