1 Announcements You should be working on chapter 6 problems: 10, 14, 15, 28. Reminder- papers on “Monk in the garden” due in lab section 10/1, 10/2. I encourage you to see me to discuss your outlines. I will look over first drafts also. September is sickle cell awareness month!

2 Sickle Cell Resources Sickle Cell Society: Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation: Harvard Medical School Joint Center for Sickle Cell and Thalassemic Disorders: See Management of Patients section

3 Sickle-cell Trait and Disease
HbA/HbA Normal; RBCs never sickle. HbS/HbS Sickle cell disease: severe, often fatal anemia; abnormal hemoglobin causes RBCs to sickle. HbA/HbS No anemia; RBCs sickle only under low [ O2 ]

4 Levels of Dominance in Sickle-cell Trait
Anemia (organismal) HbA completely dominant to HbS RBC shape (cellular) Incomplete dominance since normal at high [ O2 ], sickle at low [ O2 ] Hemoglobin (molecular) Codominance since both A and S hemoglobin can be detected electrophoretically

5 Outline of Lecture 11 I. Genes linked on the same chromosome segregate together II. Crossing-over III. 3-Point Mapping

6 I. Linkage and Crossing Over
Linkage happens when genes don’t assort independently. Genes on the same chromosome are linked. Genes linked on the same chromosome segregate together. Crossing Over involves reciprocal exchange of chromosome segments between homologs; increases genetic variation (recombination).

7 Chiasmata Between Synapsed Homologs During Meiosis Prophase I

8 Crossing Over and Mapping
Linkage without crossing over creates only parental (noncrossover) gametes. Linkage with crossing over creates parental gametes and recombinant (crossover) gametes. Interlocus distance is proportional to the degree of crossing over between. Little or no crossing over in close genes. Frequent, even multiple crossovers between distant genes. Chromosome map, determined from recombination rates, indicates relative locations of genes on a chromosome.

9 No Linkage: Independent Assortment

10 Linkage without Recombination

11 Linkage with Recombination

12 Complete Linkage: P1 Cross
In complete linkage only parental gametes form

13 Complete Linkage: F1 Cross
Not 9:3:3:1 phenotypic ratio! 1:2:1  (complete) linkage ratio Not 1:1:1:1 testcross ratio! 1:1 testcross ratio w/linkage

14 Linkage Ratio The F2 phenotypic ratio unique to two linked genes in cross of double heterozygotes. If completely linked, should be 1:2:1 for F1 X F1 1:1 for F1 X test cross parent Linkage group - group of genes which show linkage; in theory = N (the haploid number).

15 II. Morgan and Crossing Over
Morgan discovered crossing over when studying two genes on X chromosome in Drosophila. Morgan proposed that the chiasmata visible on chromosomes were regions of crossing over. Occurs between nonsister chromatids.

16 Crosses of Two X-linked genes
Expect only parental types if no crossing over occurs - Confirm this for yourself with a Punnett square.


18 Morgan’s Interpretation
Recombination was caused by linear arrangement of genes and crossing over. Frequency of recombination was determined by distance between genes: y and w recombination rate = 1.3% w an m recombination rate = 37.2% Therefore y and w were closer together on the chromosome, while w an m are farther apart.

19 Sturtevant and Mapping
Sturtevant, Morgan’s undergraduate student, discovered frequency of crossing over between each pair of the 3 genes: yellow, white 0.5% white, miniature 34.5% yellow, miniature 35.4% Do you see a pattern?

20 Sturtevant’s Interpretation
Sturtevant reasoned that recombination frequencies were additive, so order of genes on chromosome was yellow-white-miniature.

21 You only see recombination when it occurs between the genes you are watching!

22 Single Crossovers: Non-crossover (Parental) and Crossover (Recombinant) Gametes
What is the maximum % recombination?

23 Map Units One map unit (centimorgan, cM) = 1% recombination between two genes yellow and white are 0.5 cM apart yellow and miniature are 35.4 cM apart white and miniature are ( ) = 34.9 cM apart In Drosophila, crossing over occurs only in females, never in males.

24 III. Three-Point Mapping
You can add % recombination between two genes to find the order of genes pretty well. But the only way to be sure of the order of three genes is by Three-Point Mapping, which considers 3 genes at once. You look for rare double-crossover events, and that is the clue to the gene order.

25 Double Crossovers

26 Probability of Double Crossovers
Equals product of each of their individual probabilities: if PAxB = 0.20 and PBxC = 0.30 then PAxBxC = (0.20)(0.30) = 0.06 = 6 % Criteria for 3-point mapping cross: Crossover gametes heterozygous at all loci Genotypes can be determined from phenotypes Sufficient numbers for representative sample

27 3-Point Mapping in Drosophila
Cross a y ec w female with wildtype male to get triply heterozygous mutant female and triply hemizygous mutant male. Cross the F1 and examine the F2 phenotypes: NCO: noncrossover SCO: single crossover (2 types) DCO: double crossover NCO: y ec w 4685 % SCO: y + ec w % y + w 193 + ec % DCO: y ec + 3 + + w % Total: %

28 3-point Mapping Explanation

29 To Deduce the Order from a 3-Point Cross: Method 1
1. Group the 8 phenotypic groups into 4 reciprocal pairs. 2. The Non-crossover (NCO) pair is the largest group. The Double crossover (DCO) pair is the smallest group. 3a. Note which gene “switches” from the parental arrangement in DCO (present on its own) - that one is in the middle.

30 Possible Orders of 3 Genes
If yellow were in the middle, yellow phenotype would show up in DCO. If echinus were in the middle, echinus phenotype would show up in DCO. white is actually in the middle since white phenotype shows up in actual DCO data.

31 To Deduce the Order from a 3-Point Cross: Method 2
3b. Assume one of the 3 possible gene orders and work the problem. If you later find a contradiction, try one of the other orders. 4b. Determine whether a DCO with your arrangement will produce the observed DCO phenotypes. You will encounter a contradiction unless you have chosen the correct gene order. Keep trying until you get the right one.

32 To calculate recombination %:
Total crossovers between y and w (SCO1 + DCO) : Total crossovers between w and ec (SCO2 + DCO) :

33 Types of Double Exchanges: Not All are Detectable

34 Genetic Map of Drosophila melanogaster

35 Creighton and McClintock Experiment Proved Crossing Over was a Physical Event
In maize, colorless (c)/colored (C), starchy (Wx)/waxy (wx) linked on chromosome 9. Cytological markers on one parental homolog (knob on one end and translocated segment on the other end) allowed direct observation.

36 Crossovers Between Sister Chromatids (SCEs)
Revealed by “Harlequin” chromosomes labeled during DNA replication Occurs between mitotic sister chromatids. No recombination Significance unknown, but increased incidence correlated with some human diseases.
