GENETICS (BIO 325) Fall 2009 Discussion sheet 4 Key _____________________________________________________________________________________ 1. (a) Two (b) Group 1 – mutants 1,2,5 Group 2 – mutants 3,4 2. (a) Yes (b) Yes (c) No (d) No (e) Yes 3. In incomplete dominance, the phenotype of the heterozygote lies in the range between the phenotypes of the homozygous genotypes. For example, a cross of homozygous plants with red and white flower color results in plants with pink flowers. In codominance, the phenotype of the heterozygote is a mixture of the phenotypes of both of the corresponding homozygous genotypes. The heterozygous phenotype is not an intermediate of the homozygous genotypes. For example, blood groups in humans. 4. (a) 12:3:1 (b) 9:3:4 (c) 15:1 (d) 9:7 (e) 13:3 5. The pathway is Y to X to Z, with d blocking the synthesis of Y, and c the synthesis of X from Y. 6. (a) Five;

Unformatted text preview: a, b, d, e, g, h, k, l all affect one gene. Mutations c, f, i, j affect four distinct genes, all different from the first. (b) 1 → 3 → 2 → 4 → uridine The order of compounds is determined from accumulation phenotypes, not growth phenotypes. (c) In the above sequence, the gene represented by mutation a blocks before compound 1, f between 1 and 3, j between 3 and 2, c between 2 and 4, and i between 4 and uridine. 7.
