1 Sickle Cell Anemia Danny Gardner and Merline Maxi 1/28/10 Period 9/10

2 Summary of Sickle Cell Anemia  a disorder in the red blood cells causing them to be “sickle” shaped  Prevents oxygen from reaching certain organs and blood cells going through blood vessels.  Symptoms include: frequent infections, anemia, crises, delayed growth, strokes, and jaundice. Interesting Fact:  People who have sickle cell have an average life span on 30 years  Unlike normal red blood cells, which can live for 120 days, sickle-shaped cells live only 10 to 20 days.

3 What Chromosome is Sickle Cell located On?  Located on chromosome eleven  causes the hemoglobin molecules to form incorrectly giving blood cells its a crescent shape.

4 Mode of Inheritance  Autosomal recessive pattern  Both of the effected genes must be present in order for the organism to be diagnosed with the disease.

5 What Are Alleles?  Genes in a chromosome for a specific feature.  Each given by a parent

6 Punnett Square Examples SSSsSs SsSs ss SS ss Ss S s S S S S ss s s Heterozygous dominate Homozygous recessive Homozygous dominate

7 Explaining Probability S s S s  Ratios  Must equal up to total amount of possibilities Homozygous dominant : heterozygous dominant : homozygous recessive 12 1 : : 1 SS : 2 Ss : 1 ss  Percentages  Must equal up to 100 _p_ 100 Homozygous dominant: heterozygous dominant : homozygous recessive 25% : 50% : 25% 25% SS : 50% Ss : 25% ss

8 SS? Ss? ss? What these letters mean? If S is the dominant allele for Sickle cell and s in the recessive, we can infer that: Phenotype (what you SEE) SS- normal Ss-normal (Sickle cell trait) carrier ss- SICKLE CELL Genotype (what is in the GENES) SS-homozygous dominant Ss-heterozygous dominant ss- homozygous recessive SSSsSs SsSs ss S s S s

9 Genotype and Phenotype Probability SSSs ss S s S s Phenotype  Ratios- 1 SICKLE CELL: 3 normal  Percentages- 25% SICKLE CELL: % normal Genotype  Ratios- 1 SS: 2 Ss: 1 ss  Percentages- 25 % SS: 50% Ss: 25% ss

Can be heterozygous dominate or homozygous dominate. Dark Blue- Person is affected carries homozygous recessive.
