  1. 1. Theoretical Genetics Stephen Taylorhttp://sciencevideos.wordpress.com 4.3 Theoretical Genetics 1
  2. 2. Definitions This image shows a pair of homologous chromosomes. Name and annotate the labeled features. http://sciencevideos.wordpress.com 4.3 Theoretical Genetics 2
  3. 3. Definitions This image shows a pair of homologous chromosomes. Name and annotate the labeled features. Genotype The combination of alleles Homozygous dominant of a gene carried by an organism Having two copies of the same dominant allele Phenotype The expression of alleles Homozygous recessive of a gene carried by an organism Having two copies of the same recessive allele. Recessive alleles are Centromere only expressed when homozygous. Joins chromatids in cell division Codominant Alleles Pairs of alleles which are both Different versions of a gene expressed when present. Dominant alleles = capital letterRecessive alleles = lower-case letter Heterozygous Having two different alleles. The dominant allele is expressed. Carrier Gene loci Heterozygous carrier of a Specific positions of genes on a recessive disease-causing allele chromosome http://sciencevideos.wordpress.com 4.3 Theoretical Genetics 3
  4. 4. Making Babies1. Count the chromosomes in your envelope - there should be 46 in total.2. Shuffle the chromosomes, so that they are well mixed up. Which aspects of meiosis and sexual reproduction give genetic variation? • Crossing-over in prophase I • Random orientation in metaphase I and II • Random fertilisation3. Now arrange them in a karyotype (dont turn them over - leave them as they were). Activity from: http://www.nclark.net/Genetics4. What is the gender of your baby? Explain how gender is inherited in humans. http://sciencevideos.wordpress.com 4.3 Theoretical Genetics 4
  5. 5. Making Babies • Crossing-over in prophase I • Random orientation in metaphase I and II • Random fertilisationList all the traits in a table. Use the key above to determine the genotypes and phenotypesof your offspring. Draw a picture of your beautiful child’s face!HL identify traits which are polygenic, involve gene interactions and some which are linked. Activity from: http://www.nclark.net/Genetics http://sciencevideos.wordpress.com 4.3 Theoretical Genetics 5
  6. 6. Explain this Mendel crossed some yellow peas with some yellow peas. Most offspring were yellow but some were green! Mendel from: http://history.nih.gov/exhibits/nirenberg/popup_htm/01_mendel.htm http://sciencevideos.wordpress.com 4.3 Theoretical Genetics 6
  7. 7. Segregation “alleles of each gene separate into different gametes when the individual produces gametes” The yellow parent peas must Mendel did not know about be heterozygous. The yellow DNA, chromosomes or meiosis. phenotype is expressed. Through his experiments he did Through meiosis and work out that ‘heritable factors’ fertilisation, some offspring (genes) were passed on and peas are homozygous that these could have different recessive – they express a versions (alleles). green colour.

Gametes: Y or y Y or y Fertilisation results in diploid Punnet Grid: gametes zygotes.

A mis-sense mutation in the gene that produces tyrosine hydroxylase means that phenylalanine cannot be converted to tyrosine in the body - so it builds up. This results in brain developmental problems and seizures. It is progressive, so it must be diagnosed and treated early. Dairy, breastmilk, meat, nuts and aspartame must be avoided, as they are rich in phenylalanine.

  33. 33. Codominance Some genes have more than two alleles. Where alleles are codominant, they are both expressed.Human ABO blood typing is an example of multiple alleles and codominance.The gene is for cell-surface antigens (immunoglobulin receptors).These are either absent (type O) or present.If they are present, they are either type A, B or both. Key to alleles: i = no antigens presentWhere the genotype is heterozygous for IA and IB, both IA = type A anitgens presentare expressed. This is codominance. IB = type B antigens present http://sciencevideos.wordpress.com 4.3 Theoretical Genetics 33
  34. 34. More about blood typing A Nobel breakthrough in medicine.Antibodies (immunoglobulins) are specific to antigens.The immune system recognises foreign antigens andproduces antibodies in response - so if you are given thewrong blood type your body might react fatally as theantibodies cause the blood to clot.Blood type O is known as the universal donor, as it hasnot antigens against which the recipient immune systemcan react. Type AB is the universal recipient, as it has noantibodies which will react to AB antigens.

  44. 44. Sex Determination It’s all about X and Y… Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes in diploid somatic cells (n=2). 22 pairs of these are autosomes, which are homologous pairs. One pair is the sex chromosomes. XX gives the female gender, XY gives male.Karyotype of a human male, showing X and Y chromosomes:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karyotype SRY The X chromosome is much larger than the Y. X carries many genes in the non-homologous region which are not present on Y. The presence and expression of the SRY gene on Y leads to male development.

  45. 45. Sex Determination It’s all about X and Y… Chromosome pairs segregate in meiosis. Females (XX) produce only eggs containing the X chromosome.

  50. 50. Sex Linkage X and Y chromosomes are non-homologous.How is colour-blindness inherited? The red-green gene is carried at locus Xq28.

  54. 54. Red-Green Colour Blindness How does it work? The OPN1MW and OPN1LW genes are found at locus Xq28. They are responsible for producing photoreceptive pigments in the cone cells in the eye. If one of these genes is a mutant, the pigments are not produced properly and the eye cannot distinguish between green (medium) wavelengths and red (long) wavelengths in the visible spectrum.Because the Xq28 gene is in a non-homologous region when compared Xq28to the Y chromosome, red-green colour blindness is known as a sex-linked disorder. The male has no allele on the Y chromosome tocombat a recessive faulty allele on the X chromosome.

  56. 56. Hemophilia Another sex-linked disorder.Blood clotting is an example of a metabolic pathway –a series of enzyme-controlled biochemical reactions.It requires globular proteins called clotting factors.A recessive X-linked mutation in hemophiliacs results in one of thesefactors not being produced. Therefore, the clotting response toinjury does not work and the patient can bleed to death.XH XHNormal female XH Y Normal male no allele carried, none written Key to alleles: XH = healthy clotting factors Xh Xh Affected female Xh Y Affected male Xh = no clotting factor Human females can be homozygous or XH Xh Carrier female heterozygous with respect to sex-linked genes.

  73. 73. Super Evil Past Paper Question In this pedigree chart for hemophilia, what is the chance that offspring ? will be affected? A. 0% Key to alleles: B. 12.5% XH = healthy clotting factors Xh = no clotting factor C. 25% D. 50% What do we know? A = XH Y B = XH Xh (because G = Xh Y) E = XH Y Key: female male There is an equal chance of F being XH XH or XH Xh So: affected Not XH XH XH Xh Affected XH XH XH XH XH XH XH XH Xh deceased Y XH Y XH Y XH Y Xh Y So there is a 1 in 8 (12.5%) chance of the offspring being affected! http://sciencevideos.wordpress.com 4.3 Theoretical Genetics 73
