1 AUTOSOMAL LINKAGE Genes that do not obey Mendel’s Second Law © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

2 Reminder In monohybrid inheritance the F 2 generation gives a 3:1 ratio because of Mendel 1 A back cross with a heterozygote (Aa) gives a 1:1 ratio In dihybrid inheritance the F 2 generation gives a 9:3:3:1 ratio because of Mendel 2 A back cross with a heterozygote for both pairs of alleles (AaBb) gives a ratio of 1:1:1:1 © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

8 Linked genes The parental combinations of alleles (purple long and red round) seem to be inherited as almost a 3:1 ratio As though they were behaving as a single character These genes are called LINKED GENES That is the LOCI for these genes are linked on the same chromosome © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

9 Crossing over and recombinants BUT if these genes were perfectly linked together they would stay in their parental combinations (purple & long or red & round) There would be no Purple Round or Red Long These combinations have come about because of CROSSING OVER between the linked alleles on their chromosomes during Meiosis 1 These are called RECOMBINANTS © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

11 Are there any other recombinants? Yes, hidden amongst the Purple Long plants The genotype FfLl does not tell us enough about linked genes. Genotypes for linked genes can be shown as: This is an example of a parental combination This genotype would give the same phenotype as: BUT this is an example of a recombinant © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

12 Recombinants Note: recombinants are any combination of alleles that are not the same as the parental combinations This is not exclusive to the crossing over of linked genes © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

18 How do we know which of the Purple Long plants are Parental Combinations and which are Recombinants? How often does crossing over occur? Answer: Test Cross the F 1 with a double recessive for both characters © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS

22 CALCULATING THE CROSS OVER VALUE These results are typical of non-linked genes The recombinants are in the same frequency as the parental combinations Note: In this example bent wing flies are a bit crippled so their offspring are not so viable. This accounts for their low numbers © 2007 Paul Billiet ODWSODWS
