Unformatted text preview: The sickle cell condition causes red blood cells to shrivel and curl when being oxygenated. This new shape will not allow the blood cells to flow smoothly through small capillaries causing tissues to not receive oxygen. Sickle cell is a CoDominant genetic condition. CoDominance The allele (geneotype) for the formation of Normal hemoglobin = Hbn Hbn The allele (geneotype) for the formation of sickle cell anemia = Hbs Hbs The heterozygous arrangement of the alleles is CoDominant = Hbn Hbs which means that some of the red blood cells are normal and some of the red blood cells are sickled. CoDominance Sickle Cell Anemia Codominance Sickle blood cell (HBs HBs) Normal blood cell (HBn HBn) CoDominance...
