Lecture 7 2/1/08 The ABO blood type system in humans provides examples of polymorphism, multiple allelism,  complete dominance, and incomplete dominance. Antigen – anything antibodies bind to.  Usually proteins. Another example of multiple allelism or polymorphism. Clover is in the genus Trifolium.  Presence/absence and shape of chevron pattern on leaves  determined by several alleles. Page 227, 6.7 An interesting evolutionary question is why does evolution tolerate so many alleles at this locus. The type of dominance a trait shows may depend on the phenotypic level at which the  observations are made. We will discuss the dominance interactions of the HBB allele and the HBS allele found at the  locus coding for the B chain of the hemoglobin molecule. Sickle-cell anemia – ppg. 226 6.5 An electron micrograph of blood cells including some cells with the sickle phenotype.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
