USC BIO E101 WOLFF FALL 2009 STUDY QUESTIONS FINAL EXAM 2 What pattern of inheritance would lead a geneticist to suspect that an inherited disorder of cell metabolism is due to a defective mitochondrial gene? Women born with an extra X chromosome (XXX) are healthy and phenotypically indistinguishable from normal XX women. What is a likely explanation for this finding? When Thomas Hunt Morgan crossed his red-eyed F 1 generation flies to each other, the F 2 generation included both red- and white-eyed flies. Remarkably, all the white-eyed flies were male. What was the explanation for this result? A. The gene involved is on the X chromosome; B. The gene involved is on the Y chromosome; C. The gene involved is on an autosome; D. Other male-specific factors influence eye color in flies; E. Other female-specific factors influence eye color in flies.
