7) Diabetes is recessive.
A) If woman has diabetes and marries a man that doesn’t have it, is it possible for their offspring to acquire this disease?
100% Aa, Heterozygous 100% No diabetes
B) If none of the father’s ancestors had ever had diabetes, would their children have a chage of getting the disease? Explain
Consider two linked autosomal genes. The dominant allele C
of the first gene causes cataracts of the eye, whereas its
recessive allele produces normal eyes. The dominant allele
P causes polydactyly (an extra finger) whereas its allele
(p) produces a normal number of fingers. A man with
cataracts and normal fingers marries a woman with
polydactyly and normal eyes. Their son has both polydactyly
and cataracts and he marries a woman with neither trait.
What is the probability that their first child will have
cataracts and polydactyly?

How can all organisms share the same 4 bases DNA and still
be so diverse?
Does unwinding DNA cause aging?
Does a person diagnosed with turner syndrome have trouble
hearing? please reply if you have this syndrome or know
someone who does.
A single base exchange mutation occurs in the promoter of
the TRP operon. How the operation of the HIS operon might
be affected in two ways?

Cystic fibrosis (CF) occurs with a frequency of about
1/2500 Caucasian newborns and is inherited as an autosomal
recessive. A woman had an older sister die from
complications of this disease. CF is not present among
relatives of her husband. Both the woman and her husband
have normal phenotypes. What is the chance this couple will
have a CF child
The village of Oblong has 400 normally-shaped residents.
Transferrin is an iron carrier found in blood, and
electrophoretic variation of this protein is determined by
an autosomal codominant system. The citizens of Oblong were
typed for their transferrin complements. The distribution
of transferrin phenotypes was: 100 CC, 100 CD, and 200 DD.
What is the frequency of the C allele?
Explain in terms of gene product function how a mutant
allele can be dominant? recessive?
