Chapter 4 4.1 What blood types could be observed in children born to a woman who has blood type M and a man who has blood type MN? ANS: M and MN. FEEDBACK: 4.1 DIFFICULTY: easy 4.2 In rabbits, coloration of the fur depends on alleles of the gene c. From information given in the chapter, what phenotypes and proportions would be expected from the following crosses: (a) ; c c cc + + ´ (b) ; c c c c + + ´ (c) ; h ch c c c c + + ´ (d) ; ch cc cc ´ (e) ; h c c c c + + ´ (f) ? h c c cc ´ ANS: (a) all wild-type; (b) 3/4 wild-type, 1/4 albino; (c) 3/4 wild-type, 1/4 chinchilla; (d) 1/2 chinchilla, 1/2 albino; (e) 3/4 wild-type, 1/4 himalayan; (f) 1/2 himalayan, 1/2 albino. FEEDBACK: 4.1 DIFFICULTY: medium 4.3 In mice, a series of five alleles determines fur color. In order of dominance, these alleles are: , Y A yellow fur but homozygous lethal; , L A agouti with light belly; , A + agouti (wild-type); , t a black and tan; and a, black. For each of the following crosses, give the coat color of the parents and the phenotypic ratios expected among the progeny: (a) ; Y L Y L A A A A ´ (b) ; Y L t A a A a ´ (c) ; t Y a a A a ´ (d) ; L t L L A a A A ´ (e) ; L L Y A A A A + ´ (f) ; t t A a a a + ´ (g) ; t a a aa ´ (h) ; Y L t A A A a + ´ and (i) . Y L Y A a A A + ´ ANS: Parents Offspring (a) yellow × yellow 2 yellow: 1 light belly (b) yellow × light belly 2 yellow: 1 light belly: 1 black and tan (c) black and tan × yellow 2 yellow: 1 black and tan: 1 black (d) light belly × light belly all light belly

Homozygous combinations, such as 1 1 , S S do not develop because 1 S pollen is not effective on 1 S -- stigmas. However, 1 S pollen is effective on 2 3 S S stigmas. What progeny might be expected from the following crosses (seed parent written first): (a) 1 2 2 3 ; S S S S ´ (b) 1 2 3 4 ; S S S S ´ (c) 4 5 4 5 ; S S S S ´ and (d) 3 4 5 6 ? S S S S ´ ANS: (a) S 1 S 2 , S 1 S 3 , S 2 S 3 ; (b) S 1 S 3 , S 1 S 4 , S 2 S 3 , S 2 S 4 ; (c) S 4 S 5 ; (d) S 3 S 5 , S 3 S 6 , S 4 S 5 , S 4 S 6 . FEEDBACK: 4.1 DIFFICULTY: medium 4.5 From information in the chapter about the ABO blood types, what phenotypes and ratios are expected from the following matings: (a) ; A A B B I I I I ´ (b) ; A B I I ii ´ (c) ; A B I i I i ´ and (d) ?
