Outline: 1.Different types of interactions between alleles of the same gene. (variations on dominance) 1.Interactions between different genes.

Mechanisms of Dominance 1. haploinsufficiency wild-type mutant destroys the active site of the protein tetramer 2. dominant interfering action of mutant on wild-type protein 3. mutation affects ability of the protein to be regulated active protein phosphorylated inactive protein P mutant protein cannot be phosphorylated, therefore cannot be inactivated appropriately always active 4. loss of heterozygosity (strong predisposition to cancer)

Loss of Heterozygosity * illustrates how dominance can be arbitrary, depending on how you look at it (molecular level vs. organismal level)

Dominant lethal alleles eg. Manx cat M L /M = tailless M L /M L = lethal 2:1 ratio (heterozygotes: homozygous wild-type) is recovered many alleles are sublethal (a reduced number of homozygotes are recovered compared to expected ratios)

Interactions between genes: Most traits are created through complex pathways: Biosynthetic pathways Signal transduction pathways Developmental pathways

The colors of peppers are determined by the interaction of several genes Y allele: eliminate chlorophyll (y=green color) R = red r = yellow c1 and c2 (2 genes) decrease carotinoids, causing lighter shades (brown=green + red) (orange = decreased shade of red)
