MULTIPLE MULTIPLE ALLELES ALLELES

MULTIPLE MULTIPLE ALLELES ALLELES Most human genetic traits are determined by more than just two (dominant and recessive) alleles.

HUMAN BLOOD

Type A Type B Type AB Type O

Human blood types are determined by multiple alleles.

45% of the U.S. population are type O, 42% type A, 10% type B and 3% type AB

Here’s the way it works: PHENOTYPE type A type B type AB type O

GENOTYPE(S) AA or AO BB or BO AB OO

MULTIPLE MULTIPLE ALLELES ALLELES BLOOD TYPE GENETICS PROBLEMS

1.

One parent is type O, the other is type AB.

1. Type AB

AB

Type O

OO First: Write the parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s genotypes.

Type O

Third: Match up and find the offspringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s genotypes.

1.

Type O

O O Type AB A AO AO AB B BO BO

Fifth: Count ‘em up. 2/4 or 50% will be type A 2/4 or 50% will be type B

2.

Could a man with type B blood and a woman with type AB produce a child with type O blood?

2.

Could a man with type B blood and a woman with type AB produce a child with type O blood?

Possible genotypes The possible genotypes of a man with blood type B are BB or BO, and the genotype of a woman with blood type AB is AB.
