Unformatted text preview: different from either homozygous form. This is sometimes referred to as an intermediate phenotype. There are a number of variations in lack of dominance, but each results in heterozygous conditions that have a phenotype different from either homozygous phenotype. In other words, when a gene lacks dominance, there will be three different phenotypes, two homozygous phenotypes (AA and A'A') and a third heterozygous phenotype (AA'). A . Incomplete Dominance • Failure to completely mask or cover the recessive allele • The heterozygote first generation has some intermediate phenotype between the two homozygous forms, often appearing as a blending of the two alleles. • Examples: snapdragon flowers and human hair texture...
