56) The pedigree in Figure 15.4 shows the transmission of a trait in a particular family. Based on this pattern of transmission, the trait is most likely A) mitochondrial. B) autosomal recessive. C) sex‐linked dominant. D) sex‐linked recessive. E) autosomal dominant. Answer: A Topic: Concept 15.5 Skill: Application/Analysis 57) A gene is considered to be non Mendelian in its inheritance pattern if it seems to "violate" Mendel's laws.

58) Genomic imprinting is generally due to the addition of methyl ( CH3) groups to C nucleotides in order to silence a given gene. If this depends on the sex of the parent who transmits the gene, which of the following must be true? 59) Correns described that the inheritance of variegated color on the leaves of certain plants was determined by the maternal parent only. What phenomenon does this describe? 60) Mitochondrial DNA is primarily involved in coding for proteins needed for electron transport. Therefore in which body systems would you expect most mitochondrial gene mutations to be exhibited? A) The immune system and the blood B) Excretory and respiratory systems C) The skin and senses D) Nervous and muscular systems E) Circulation Answer: D Topic: Concept 15.5 Skill: Synthesis/Evaluation 61) A certain kind of snail can have a right handed direction of shell coiling (D) or left handed coiling (d). If direction of coiling is due to a protein deposited by the mother in the egg cytoplasm, then a Dd egg producing snail and a dd sperm producing snail will have offspring of which genotype(s) and phenotype(s)?

    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.
