2 Chapter CONCEPTS Inherited characteristics are under the control of discrete particulate factors called genes that are transmitted from generation to generation on vehicles called chromosomes, according to rules, first described by Gregor Mendel The outcomes of crosses subject to these rules are affected by chance deviation and can be evaluated using statistical analysis. Human traits are initially studied using the pedigree method.

17 How Mendel's Peas Become Wrinkled: A Molecular Explanation Only recently, well over a hundred years after Mendel used wrinkled peas in his ground-breaking hybridization experiments, have we come to find out how the wrinkled 皱缩 gene makes peas wrinkled. The wild-type allele of the gene encodes a protein called starch-branching enzyme (SBEI). This enzyme catalyzes the formation of highly branched starch molecules as the seed matures. Wrinkled peas, which result from the homozygeus presence of the mutant form of the gene, lack the activity of this enzyme.

18 The production of branch points is inhibited during the synthesis of starch within the seed. This in turn leads to the accumulation of more sucrose and to a higher water content while the seed develops. Osmotic pressure inside rises, which causes the loss of water internally and ultimately the wrinkled appearance of the seed during its maturation. In contrast, developing seeds that bear at least one copy of the normal gene (being either homozygous or heterozygous for the dominant allele) synthesize starch, and reach an osmotic balance that minimizes the loss of water the end result is a smooth-textured outer coat

19 The SBEI gene has been cloned and analyzed. Interestingly, the mutant gene contains a foreign, sequence of some 800 base pairs that disrupts the normal coding sequence. This foreign segment closely resembles other such sequences, called Transposable elements. They have the ability to move from place to place in the genome of organisms. Transposable elements similar to this one have been found in maize (corn), parsley, and snapdragons. Study of the SBEi gene provides greater insight into the relationship between genotypes and phenotypes. We cover transposable elements greater detail in Chapter 14.

37 STATISTICS: BINOMIAL EXPANSION Fbinomial expansion of (p + q) n = F... if p = ¾ and q = ¼,... Fexpansion of (p + q) 3 = (¾ + ¼)(¾ + ¼ )(¾ + ¼ ) =

38 Binomial Expansion 1 、遗传分析中后代组合的概率推算 Aa X aa 杂交 —— 二个后代出现 Aa 和 aa 的组合如 下: No1. No2 概率 Aa Aa ¼ Aa aa ¼ Aa Aa ¼ aa aa ¼ 分布方式 1 : 2 : 1 , 正是( p+q) 2 =1p 2 +2pq+1q 2 [(Aa) + (aa)] 2 = 1(Aa)(Aa):2(Aa)(aa):1(aa)(aa)

39 Aa X aa 产生三个后代 ( p+q) 3 = (1/2 + ½ ) 3 基因型及组合 概率 Aa aa 3 0 P 3 =(1/2) 3 =1/ p 2 q=3(1/2) 2 (1/2)=3/ pq 2 =3(1/2)(1/2) 2 =3/8 0 3 q 3 =(1/2) 3 =1/8 一般说,设 p 为某一基因型(或表型)出现的概率, q 或( 1-p) 为另一基因型(或表型)出现概率,那 么有 p+q=1 。这些事件每一特定组合的概率都可 以用二项式展开说明,二项式展开的系数表示在 总共可能出现的组合数中的比率。

40 杨辉三角:则为二项式展开的系数

41 n!/s!(n-s)p s q n-s 如果不考虑出现顺序,可有如下通式计算表型 或基因型某一特定组合的概率: –n—— 子代数目 –S—— 某一基因型(或表型)数 –n-s—— 另一基因型(或表型)数 –P—— 某一基因型(或表型)出现的概率 –q—— 另一基因型(或表型)出现的概率 例:某医院一天出生 6 个婴儿,三男三女的概 率是多少? – ( 6 ! /3 ! 3 !)( 1/2 ) 3 ( 1/2 ) 3 =5/16

42 2 、 孟德尔遗传的分离比率的二项式 F 2 基因型比为( 1 ∶ 2 ∶ 1 ) 2 ,即( 1/4+2/4+1/4 ) 2 三项 式展开式的各项系数; F 2 表型比为( 3 ∶ 1 ) 2 ,即( 3/4+1/4 ) 2 二项式展开式 的各项系数。 ( 3 : 1 ) n ( n— 基因对数),既( a+b) 2 =a 2 + 2ab + b 2 以 3 代 a, 以 1 代 b ,则有, – 当两对基因时 (3+1) 2 =(3) 2 + 2(3)(1)+ (1) 2 – 当三对基因时 (3+1) 3 =(3) 3 + 3(3) 2 (1) + 3(3)(1) 2 + (1) 3 9:9:9 3:3:3 由此可见任何对基因杂种自交后代表型都可以用二项式展开计算。

43 N 对基因的二项式展开 随着基因对数的增加,二项式展开将变 得复杂。当有 n 对基因时: (a+b) n =C n 0 a n +C n 1 a n-1 b + C n 2 a n-2 b 2 …C n k a n-k b k +C n n b n C n k = n!/K!(n-k)! 同样可以用杨辉三角推得

44 3.5 Rediscovery of Mendel’s Work

45 MENDELIAN ANALYSIS: 2 LAWS 1.particulate hereditary determinants (genes) 2.alleles  different phenotypes; dominance 3.alleles of a gene segregate into different gametes 4.gametes receive 1 allele with equal probability 5.union of gametes at fertilization is random 6. alleles of different genes* assort independently into different gametes * gene pairs on different chromosomes

46 STUFF TO THINK ABOUT FMendel’s choice of characters was critical Fdid he chose 7 characters that appeared to reside on different chromosomes by chance ? Fwhat would happen if some were linked? Fall exhibited dominant/recessive relationships

47 3.6 Independent Assortment and genetic Variation One major consequence of independent assortment is the production by an individual of genetically dissimilar gametes. Genetic variation results because the two members of any homologous pair of chromosomes are rarely if ever genetically identical. Therefore, because independent assortment leads to the production of al1 possible chromosome combinations, extensive genetic diversity results.

48 We have seen that the number of possible gametes, each with different chromosome compositions, is 2 n, where n equals the haploid number. Thus, if a species has a haploid number of 4, then 2 4 or l6 different gamete combinations can be formed as a result of independent assortment. Although this number is not high, consider the human Species, where n = 23, if 2 23 is calcu1ated, we find that in excess of 8 x l0 6. or over 8 million, different types of gametes are represented. Because fertilization represents an event involving only one of approximately 8 x l0 6 possible gametes from each of two parents. each offspring represents only one of (8 x 10 6 ) 2. or 64 x 10 12, potential genetic combinations!

49 No wonder that except for identical twins, each member of the human species demonstrates a distinctive appearance and individuality. This number of combinations is far greater than the number of humans who have ever lived on earth ! Genetic variation resulting from independent assortment has been extremely important to the process of evolution in all organisms.

51 3.8 Evaluating genetic data : Chi-square Mendel's 3:1 monohybrid and 9:3:3:1 dihybrid ratios are hypothetical predictions based on the following assumptions: (1)Each allele is dominant or recessive; (2) segregation is operative; (3) independent assortment occurs; and (4) fertilization is random. The last three assumptions are influenced by chance events and are therefore subject to random fluctuation. This concept, called chance deviation, is most easily illustrated by tossing a single coin numerous limes and recording the number of heads and tails observed.

52 Chi-square test. –Understand what a null hypothesis is and how to state a testable hypothesis. –Understand what degrees of freedom are. –Understand how to calculate a chi-square value and how to interpret what it means. –Understand how to determine whether to accept or reject your hypothesis. –Understand how to read a chi-square table to interpret the probability of getting a given chi-square value.

53 STATISTICS: CHI-SQUARE ANALYSIS F4 phenotypes ~ roughly 9:3:3:1 ratio Fhypothesis Fwhat does it mean ? Ftest hypothesis


55 Fexpress this as: 0.95 > P (  2 c = 0.511) > 0.90 Fthe data do not deviate significantly from a 9:3:3:1 ratio Fwe do not reject our H 0 (alternatively we could reject ) F“seed color and seed shape fit an unlinked, 2 gene classic Mendelian model with complete dominance” Fthe probability of deviation by chance from this model lies between 90 and 95% (in other words, the biological explanation is supported by data)


57 3.9 Human Pedigree –Understand what a proband is in a pedigree. –Understand how to recognize dominant and recessive traits in pedigrees. –Understand how to predict the probability of an affected individual appearing in a future generation. Work the problems at the end of the chapter

58 Mendelian Genetics in Humans –Understand the major symbols used in pedigrees. Open squares and open circles represent males and females unaffected by whatever condition is being studied in the pedigree. Shaded squares and shaded circles represent males and females affected by the condition studied in pedigree. See figure (p. 272) for other major symbols


60 PEDIGREE ANALYSIS Forder of events for solving pedigrees 1.identify all individuals according to number and letter 2.identify individuals according to phenotypes and genotypes where possible 3.for I generation, determine probability of genotypes 4.for I generation, determine probability of passing allele 5.for II generation, determine probability of inheriting allele 6.for II generation, same as 3 7.for II generation, same as 4… etc to finish pedigree

61 There are 2 major systems used in genetics to symbolize two alternative forms (alleles) of genes. –Corn Notation System (used by Mendel) Upper case letter is used to symbolize the dominant allele. Lower case form of the same letter is used to symbolize the recessive allele. Since there are more than 26 traits in any given species, more than one letter may be used to designate the alleles.

62 Example 1: let R = round seeds and r = wrinkled seeds. Therefore, genotypes are: RR or Rr for round and rr for wrinkled. Example 2: let PU = purple flowers and pu = white flowers. Therefore, genotypes are: PUPU or PUpu for purple & pupu for white. –Drosophila Notation System (used by Morgan) Uses same case of a letter(s) for both dominant and recessive alleles. If mutant is recessive to normal, lower case letters are used for both alleles, and + symbol is added to the normal (non-mutant) allele.

63 If mutant is dominant to normal, upper case letters are used for both alleles, and + symbol is added to the normal (non-mutant) allele. Example 1: Let b = black body and b + = normal body color. Therefore, the genotypes are b + b + or b + b for normal and bb for black body. Black body is recessive to normal body color. Example 2: Let B = bar eyes and B + = normal eyes. Therefore, the genotypes are BB or B B + for bar eyes and B + B + for normal eyes. Bar eyes are dominant to normal eyes.
