B. Answer the following questions in one or two sentences. There are seven questions. You only need to answer six of them. If you answer all of them, indicate which ones you want me to grade, or I will grade the first six.
- What is uniparental dismount?
- Show all of the genotype possible for a person with B+ blood.
- Why is nondisjunction a more common occurrence in older females? And don’t just say because their eggs are older.
- What cause the developing egg to progress from prophase II to metaphase II?
- Define incomplete dominance.
- If an Rh- person gets a transfusion with Rh+ blood there might not be a problem. But if there is a second transfusion with Rh+ blood there will be. Why?
- Describe the chromosome complement and name on important characteristic of Turner syndrome.
C. Answer the following questions carefully. If they are written answer, keep in mind that they are worth more points than the questions in part B, so they should be detailed answers. If they are problems, you MUST show your work. If you show your work you can get partial credit, even if an incorrect answer. If you don’t show your work you can not get credit even if the answer is correct.
- A certain recessive gene causes death of the embryo after only a few day is development. Two people are heterozygous for this gene. What proportion of their live-born children will also be heterozygous? Be careful.
- Name four things that are happening in prophase I of meiosis.
- An organism has a diploid chromosomes number of 8. Draw a picture of cells in:
- (A)Metaphase of mitosis. (B). Metaphase II of meiosis
- Mary is A+ and bill is O-. Mary’s mother is O-. Bill and Mary are about to have a baby. What are the chance it will be:
- Explain two ways a child could have Prader-Willi syndrome.
In peas Yellow color is dominant over green and round over wrinkled. Both are autosomal genes. True-breeding yellow, round pews are crossed with true-breeding green, wrinkled peas, producing a generation known as F1. Two individuals from the F1 are crossed to produce an F2. What is the expected frequency of yellow wrinkled peas in the F2? (True breeding means that all the offspring are like the parents, which means the parents and the offspring are all homozygous.)
