4 Genes Chemical factors that determine traits (units of information) Analogy: Genes are like a combination of ingredients in a recipe. They code for a specific food.Passed from parents to offspringEach has a specific location (locus) on a chromosome
5 AllelesDifferent forms of a gene (back to analogy…replacing jiffy p.b. with skippy p.b.)Dominant allele (Uppercase letter) overrules a recessive allele (lowercase letter) that it is paired with
6 Allele Combinations Homozygous =purebred Heterozygous =hybrid having two identical alleles at a locusAA (dominant expressed) or aa (recessive expressed)Heterozygous =hybridhaving two different alleles at a locusAa (dominant expressed)
7 Genotype & PhenotypeGenotype refers to particular genes an individual carriesPhenotype refers to an individual’s observable traitsCannot always determine genotype by observing phenotype
8 Tracking Generations Parental generation P mates to produce First-generation offspring F1mate to produceSecond-generation offspring F2
9 Earlobe VariationWhether a person is born with attached or detached earlobes depends on a single geneGene has two molecular forms (alleles)
11 Earlobe VariationYou inherited one allele for this gene from each parentDominant allele specifies detached earlobes (E)Recessive allele specifies attached earlobes (e)
12 Dominant & Recessive Alleles If you have attached earlobes, you inherited two copies of the recessive alleleIf you have detached earlobes, you may have either one or two copies of the dominant allele
13 Early Ideas About Heredity People knew that sperm and eggs transmitted information about traitsBlending theoryProblem:Would expect variation to disappearVariation in traits persists
14 Gregor Mendel Strong background in plant breeding and mathematics Using pea plants, found indirect but observable evidence of how parents transmit genes to offspring
15 Mendel was born in1822Austrian monkStudied at the Univ. of ViennaTeacher (High School)

22 F1 Results of Mendel’s Dihybrid Crosses All plants displayed the dominant form of both traitsWe now know:All plants inherited one allele for each trait from each parentAll plants were heterozygous (AaBb)
23 Principle of Dominance Some alleles are dominant and others are recessive.
24 Mendel wanted to know if the recessive alleles disappeared or are they still in the f1,just hidden.

28 Mendel’s Theory of Segregation An individual inherits a unit of information (allele) about a trait from each parentDuring gamete formation, the alleles segregate from each other
29 Independent Assortment Mendel concluded that the two “units” for the first trait were to be assorted into gametes independently of the two “units” for the other traitMembers of each pair of homologous chromosomes are sorted into gametes at random during meiosis

51 Dominance Relations Complete dominance Incomplete dominance Heterozygote phenotype is somewhere between that of two homozyotesCodominanceNon-identical alleles specify two phenotypes that are both expressed in heterozygotes

53 Flower Color in Snapdragons: Incomplete Dominance Red flowers - two alleles allow them to make a red pigmentWhite flowers - two mutant alleles; can’t make red pigmentPink flowers have one normal and one mutant allele; make a smaller amount of red pigment

61 Genetics of Sickle-Cell Anemia Two alleles1) HbAEncodes normal beta hemoglobin chain2) HbSMutant allele encodes defective chainHbS homozygotes produce only the defective hemoglobin; suffer from sickle-cell anemia
62 Pleiotrophic Effects of HbS/HbS At low oxygen levels, cells with only HbS hemoglobin “sickle” and stick togetherThis impedes oxygen delivery and blood flowOver time, it causes damage throughout the body
63 Blood Typing Karl Landsteiner 1897 Worked at the Univ. of Vienna, Vienna Austria (Sound familiar?)Wanted to find out which red blood cells would clot
64 First found two different groups, A and B Third group would not clot when exposed to A or B What do you think this was?What about the forth group?
65 Genetics of ABO Blood Types: Three Alleles Gene that controls ABO type codes for enzyme that dictates structure of a glycolipid on blood cellsTwo alleles (IA and IB) are codominant when pairedThird allele (i) is recessive to others
66 ABO Blood Type: Glycolipids on Red Cells Type A - Glycolipid A on cell surfaceType B - Glycolipid B on cell surfaceType AB - Both glyocolipids A & BType O - Neither glyocolipid A nor B
67 ABO Blood Type: Allele Combinations Type A - IAIA or IAiType B - IBIB or IBiType AB - IAIBType O - ii
68 ABO and TransfusionsRecipient’s immune system will attack blood cells that have an unfamiliar glycolipid on surfaceType O is universal donor because it has neither type A nor type B glycolipid
69 Codominance and Multiple Alleles - AB or NOT AB Codominance - both alleles are dominantIA and IBMultiple Alleles - genes have more than two allelesIA, IB, Ia

81 Recessive Disorder Figure 14-8 The Cause of Cystic Fibrosis Chromosome # 7CFTR geneThe most common allele that causes cystic fibrosis is missing 3 DNA bases. As a result, the amino acid phenylalanine is missing from the CFTR protein.Normal CFTR is a chloride ion channel in cell membranes. Abnormal CFTR cannot be transported to the cell membrane.The cells in the person’s airways are unable to transport chloride ions. As a result, the airways become clogged with a thick mucus.

94 1. First, let’s take a look at Queen Victoria’s son Leopold’s family 1. First, let’s take a look at Queen Victoria’s son Leopold’s family. His daughter, Alice of Athlone, had one hemophilic son (Rupert) and two other children—a boy and a girl—whose status is unknown. a) What is the probability that her other son was hemophilic? b) What is the probability that her daughter was a carrier? Hemophilic? c) What is the probability that both children were normal?
95 2. Now for the Spanish connection: Victoria’s youngest child, Beatrice, gave birth to one daughter, one normal son, and two hemophilic sons. Looking at the pedigree of the royal family, identify which of Beatrice’s children received the hemophilic gene; why can you make this conclusion? Notice that Beatrice’s daughter, Eugenie, married King Alfonso XIII of Spain and had six children, one of whom was the father of Juan Carlos, the current King of Spain. Would you predict that Juan Carlos was normal, a carrier, or a hemophilic?
96 3. Alexis did not die from hemophilia 3. Alexis did not die from hemophilia. At the age of fourteen he was executed with the rest of the family. His four oldest sisters were also young and didn’t have children, so we don’t know whether any of them was a carrier. But we can make an estimate. a) What are the probabilities that all four of the girls were carriers of the allele hemophilia? b) Supposing Alexis had lived and married a normal woman, what are the chances that his daughter would be a hemophiliac? c) What are the chances his daughters would be carriers? d) What are the chances that his sons would be hemophiliacs?
