1 1/20/11 1. Parental: Gametes or individuals that are like the parents with respect to their chromosomes, genotypes, and/or phenotypes 2. Recombinant: Gametes or individuals that are unlike the parents in terms of their chromosomes, genotypes, and/or phenotypes 3. Recombination frequency (RF): Proportion of recombinant gametes or progeny due to crossover --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SEX DETERMINATION IN DIFFERENT GROUPS System Group Sexes Discussion XY, Y determination Mammals XY heterogametic males Presence of Y ensures maleness XX homogametic females XY, A/X ratio Fruit flies XY heterogametic males Ratio of autosomes to X chromosomes XX homogametic females determines sexes ZW Birds, ZW heterogametic females Reverse situation of mammals, with Z butterflies ZZ homogametic males and W corresponding to X and Y X0 Grasshoppers X0 males ( 2n =23) Heterogametic males have only 1 sex XX females ( 2n = 24) chromosome as Y completely lost Haplodiploidy Bees, ants, Haploid males Males develop from unfertilized eggs wasps Diploid females Single genes Many plants, Two different mating types 2 alleles at 1 gene encode for different unicellular sexes eukaryotes, fungi Environmental (e.g., Many reptiles Hi temperatures lead to males One of many possibilities (see Fig. 7- temperature- Low temperatures to females 18) dependent) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LINKAGE Genes linked to: A.
