Ch 15: The Chromosomal Basis of Inheritance

  1. 1. LECTURE PRESENTATIONS For CAMPBELL BIOLOGY, NINTH EDITION Jane B. Reece, Lisa A. Urry, Michael L. Cain, Steven A. Wasserman, Peter V. Minorsky, Robert B. Jackson © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Lectures by Erin Barley Kathleen Fitzpatrick The Chromosomal Basis of Inheritance Chapter 15
  2. 2. Overview: Locating Genes Along Chromosomes • Mendel’s “hereditary factors” were genes • Today we can show that genes are located on chromosomes • The location of a particular gene can be seen by tagging isolated chromosomes with a fluorescent dye that highlights the gene © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  3. 3. Figure 15.1
  4. 4. Concept 15.1: Mendelian inheritance has its physical basis in the behavior of chromosomes • Mitosis and meiosis were first described in the late 1800s • The chromosome theory of inheritance states: – Mendelian genes have specific loci (positions) on chromosomes – Chromosomes undergo segregation and independent assortment • The behavior of chromosomes during meiosis can account for Mendel’s laws of segregation and independent assortment © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  9. 9. Morgan’s Experimental Evidence: Scientific Inquiry • The first solid evidence associating a specific gene with a specific chromosome came from Thomas Hunt Morgan, an embryologist • Morgan’s experiments with fruit flies provided convincing evidence that chromosomes are the location of Mendel’s heritable factors © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  10. 10. Morgan’s Choice of Experimental Organism • Several characteristics make fruit flies a convenient organism for genetic studies – They produce many offspring – A generation can be bred every two weeks – They have only four pairs of chromosomes © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  11. 11. • Morgan noted wild type, or normal, phenotypes that were common in the fly populations • Traits alternative to the wild type are called mutant phenotypes © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  15. 15. Correlating Behavior of a Gene’s Alleles with Behavior of a Chromosome Pair • In one experiment, Morgan mated male flies with white eyes (mutant) with female flies with red eyes (wild type) – The F1 generation all had red eyes – The F2 generation showed the 3:1 red:white eye ratio, but only males had white eyes • Morgan determined that the white-eyed mutant allele must be located on the X chromosome • Morgan’s finding supported the chromosome theory of inheritance © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  19. 19. Concept 15.2: Sex-linked genes exhibit unique patterns of inheritance • In humans and some other animals, there is a chromosomal basis of sex determination © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  20. 20. The Chromosomal Basis of Sex • In humans and other mammals, there are two varieties of sex chromosomes: a larger X chromosome and a smaller Y chromosome • Only the ends of the Y chromosome have regions that are homologous with corresponding regions of the X chromosome • The SRY gene on the Y chromosome codes for a protein that directs the development of male anatomical features © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  21. 21. Figure 15.5 X Y
  22. 22. • Females are XX, and males are XY • Each ovum contains an X chromosome, while a sperm may contain either an X or a Y chromosome • Other animals have different methods of sex determination © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  26. 26. • A gene that is located on either sex chromosome is called a sex-linked gene • Genes on the Y chromosome are called Y-linked genes; there are few of these • Genes on the X chromosome are called X-linked genes © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  27. 27. Inheritance of X-Linked Genes • X chromosomes have genes for many characters unrelated to sex, whereas the Y chromosome mainly encodes genes related to sex determination © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  28. 28. • X-linked genes follow specific patterns of inheritance • For a recessive X-linked trait to be expressed – A female needs two copies of the allele (homozygous) – A male needs only one copy of the allele (hemizygous) • X-linked recessive disorders are much more common in males than in females © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  31. 31. X Inactivation in Female Mammals • In mammalian females, one of the two X chromosomes in each cell is randomly inactivated during embryonic development • The inactive X condenses into a Barr body • If a female is heterozygous for a particular gene located on the X chromosome, she will be a mosaic for that character © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  34. 34. • Each chromosome has hundreds or thousands of genes (except the Y chromosome) • Genes located on the same chromosome that tend to be inherited together are called linked genes Concept 15.3: Linked genes tend to be inherited together because they are located near each other on the same chromosome © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  35. 35. How Linkage Affects Inheritance • Morgan did other experiments with fruit flies to see how linkage affects inheritance of two characters • Morgan crossed flies that differed in traits of body color and wing size © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  44. 44. Recombination of Unlinked Genes: Independent Assortment of Chromosomes • Mendel observed that combinations of traits in some offspring differ from either parent • Offspring with a phenotype matching one of the parental phenotypes are called parental types • Offspring with nonparental phenotypes (new combinations of traits) are called recombinant types, or recombinants • A 50% frequency of recombination is observed for any two genes on different chromosomes © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  46. 46. Recombination of Linked Genes: Crossing Over • Morgan discovered that genes can be linked, but the linkage was incomplete, because some recombinant phenotypes were observed • He proposed that some process must occasionally break the physical connection between genes on the same chromosome • That mechanism was the crossing over of homologous chromosomes © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  50. 50. New Combinations of Alleles: Variation for Normal Selection • Recombinant chromosomes bring alleles together in new combinations in gametes • Random fertilization increases even further the number of variant combinations that can be produced • This abundance of genetic variation is the raw material upon which natural selection works © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  51. 51. Mapping the Distance Between Genes Using Recombination Data: Scientific Inquiry • Alfred Sturtevant, one of Morgan’s students, constructed a genetic map, an ordered list of the genetic loci along a particular chromosome • Sturtevant predicted that the farther apart two genes are, the higher the probability that a crossover will occur between them and therefore the higher the recombination frequency © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  52. 52. • A linkage map is a genetic map of a chromosome based on recombination frequencies • Distances between genes can be expressed as map units; one map unit, or centimorgan, represents a 1% recombination frequency • Map units indicate relative distance and order, not precise locations of genes © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  54. 54. • Genes that are far apart on the same chromosome can have a recombination frequency near 50% • Such genes are physically linked, but genetically unlinked, and behave as if found on different chromosomes © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  55. 55. • Sturtevant used recombination frequencies to make linkage maps of fruit fly genes • Using methods like chromosomal banding, geneticists can develop cytogenetic maps of chromosomes • Cytogenetic maps indicate the positions of genes with respect to chromosomal features © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  57. 57. Concept 15.4: Alterations of chromosome number or structure cause some genetic disorders • Large-scale chromosomal alterations in humans and other mammals often lead to spontaneous abortions (miscarriages) or cause a variety of developmental disorders • Plants tolerate such genetic changes better than animals do © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  58. 58. Abnormal Chromosome Number • In nondisjunction, pairs of homologous chromosomes do not separate normally during meiosis • As a result, one gamete receives two of the same type of chromosome, and another gamete receives no copy © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  62. 62. • Aneuploidy results from the fertilization of gametes in which nondisjunction occurred • Offspring with this condition have an abnormal number of a particular chromosome © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  63. 63. • A monosomic zygote has only one copy of a particular chromosome • A trisomic zygote has three copies of a particular chromosome © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  64. 64. • Polyploidy is a condition in which an organism has more than two complete sets of chromosomes – Triploidy (3n) is three sets of chromosomes – Tetraploidy (4n) is four sets of chromosomes • Polyploidy is common in plants, but not animals • Polyploids are more normal in appearance than aneuploids © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  65. 65. Alterations of Chromosome Structure • Breakage of a chromosome can lead to four types of changes in chromosome structure – Deletion removes a chromosomal segment – Duplication repeats a segment – Inversion reverses orientation of a segment within a chromosome – Translocation moves a segment from one chromosome to another © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  66. 66. Figure 15.14 (a) Deletion (b) Duplication (c) Inversion (d) Translocation A deletion removes a chromosomal segment. A duplication repeats a segment. An inversion reverses a segment within a chromosome. A translocation moves a segment from one chromosome to a nonhomologous chromosome.

  69. 69. Human Disorders Due to Chromosomal Alterations • Alterations of chromosome number and structure are associated with some serious disorders • Some types of aneuploidy appear to upset the genetic balance less than others, resulting in individuals surviving to birth and beyond • These surviving individuals have a set of symptoms, or syndrome, characteristic of the type of aneuploidy © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  70. 70. Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21) • Down syndrome is an aneuploid condition that results from three copies of chromosome 21 • It affects about one out of every 700 children born in the United States • The frequency of Down syndrome increases with the age of the mother, a correlation that has not been explained © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  74. 74. Aneuploidy of Sex Chromosomes • Nondisjunction of sex chromosomes produces a variety of aneuploid conditions • Klinefelter syndrome is the result of an extra chromosome in a male, producing XXY individuals • Monosomy X, called Turner syndrome, produces X0 females, who are sterile; it is the only known viable monosomy in humans © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  75. 75. Disorders Caused by Structurally Altered Chromosomes • The syndrome cri du chat (“cry of the cat”), results from a specific deletion in chromosome 5 • A child born with this syndrome is mentally retarded and has a catlike cry; individuals usually die in infancy or early childhood • Certain cancers, including chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), are caused by translocations of chromosomes © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  77. 77. Concept 15.5: Some inheritance patterns are exceptions to standard Mendelian inheritance • There are two normal exceptions to Mendelian genetics • One exception involves genes located in the nucleus, and the other exception involves genes located outside the nucleus • In both cases, the sex of the parent contributing an allele is a factor in the pattern of inheritance © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  78. 78. Genomic Imprinting • For a few mammalian traits, the phenotype depends on which parent passed along the alleles for those traits • Such variation in phenotype is called genomic imprinting • Genomic imprinting involves the silencing of certain genes that are “stamped” with an imprint during gamete production © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

  82. 82. • It appears that imprinting is the result of the methylation (addition of —CH3) of cysteine nucleotides • Genomic imprinting is thought to affect only a small fraction of mammalian genes • Most imprinted genes are critical for embryonic development © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.
  83. 83. Inheritance of Organelle Genes • Extranuclear genes (or cytoplasmic genes) are found in organelles in the cytoplasm • Mitochondria, chloroplasts, and other plant plastids carry small circular DNA molecules • Extranuclear genes are inherited maternally because the zygote’s cytoplasm comes from the egg • The first evidence of extranuclear genes came from studies on the inheritance of yellow or white patches on leaves of an otherwise green plant © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc.

Each chromosome has hundreds or thousands of genes. Four (A, B, C, F) are shown on this one. The alleles of unlinked genes are either on separate chromosomes (such as d and e) or so far apart on the same chromosome (c and f) that they assort independently. Genes on the same chromo- some whose alleles are so close together that they do not assort independently (such as a, b, and c) are said to be genetically linked.
