Problem 10. Two independent genes are located near each other on the worm genome. Tailin is required for tail-formation and Fertilin is required for fertility. Non-coding region Non-coding region Non-coding region A B C D E F A) If you insert an extra nucleotide at position A, what will be the phenotype of an animal homozygous for this mutation? (Please do not invoke any obscure phenomena or concepts we have not talked about in class—these questions are just as straight-forward as they appear!) If you insert a nucleotide at position C, what will be the homozygous phenotype? If you insert a nucleotide at position D, what will be the homozygous phenotype? If you insert a nucleotide at position C, and take one away from position D, what will be

Unformatted text preview: the homozygous phenotype? If you insert a nucleotide at positions A and C, what will be the homozygous phenotype? B) If you insert a nucleotide at position A, how might you be able to suppress the mutant phenotype at position B? If you add two nucleotides at position B, name two distinct alterations you could make at position A that would suppress the phenotype. 1. 2. C) You find that you can suppress a mutation at position D by removing a nucleotide at position E, but not by removing one at position F. What does this tell you about the structure of the Fertilin gene? Tailin Fertilin...
