Hemophilia (blood disorder) Ex. Hemophilia (blood disorder) Slide 8 Linked genes Linked genes Traits that are inherited together Makes a linkage group This happens because they are found close to each other in the same chromosome and not as easily genetically recombined by crossing- over Slide 9 Chromosome Map A diagram that shows the linear order of genes on a chromosome A diagram that shows the linear order of genes on a chromosome Map unit frequency of crossing over of 1%. Map unit frequency of crossing over of 1%. Slide 10 Mutations Germ-cell mutations Germ-cell mutations Occur in gametes (may not be expressed until offspring) Somatic-cell mutations Somatic-cell mutations Occur in body cells May affect organs Skin cancer and leukemia Skin cancer and leukemia Lethal mutations Cause death, often before birth Cause death, often before birth Slide 11 Inheritance of Traits Pedigrees Pedigrees A diagram showing how a trait is inherited over several generations Slide 12 Russian Royal Family &amp; hemophilia Genetic abnormality rare, uncommon trait version Genetic disorder inherited condition causing medical disorders Syndrome recognized set of disorders that characterize a disorder Slide 13 Patterns of Inheritance If a trait is If a trait is Autosomal Appears in both sexes equally Appears in both sexes equally Dominant Dominant Every individual with the trait will have parents with the trait BB or Bb (dominant trait will show) BB or Bb (dominant trait will show) bb (recessive trait will show) bb (recessive trait will show) Recessive Recessive 1, 2, or no parent with the trait Bb X Bb will not show mutation but can produce children for the recessive allele (bb) Bb (carrier) Slide 14 Genetic Trait and Disorders Single-Allele traits Single-Allele traits Controlled by a single allele of a gene More 200 human traits Huntingtons disease Forgetfulness and irritability Forgetfulness and irritability Slide 15 Gene Inheritance &amp; Disorders Polygenic Inheritance Polygenic Inheritance Traits are influence by more than one gene Skin color Skin color 3 to 6 genes Genes control amount of melanin Eye color, height, hair color Eye color, height, hair color Slide 16 Complex characters Complex characters Influenced both by environment and genes Skin color, breast cancer, height Slide 17 Multiple Alleles Multiple Alleles Genes with 3 or more alleles ABO blood groups I A, I B, and I I A and I B are codominant Codominance Codominance Both alleles are expressed I A I B is type AB Slide 18 Incomplete dominance Incomplete dominance Trait that is displayed is intermediate between the two parents. Hair type Curly (CC) X Straight (cc)= Wavy hair (Cc) Curly (CC) X Straight (cc)= Wavy hair (Cc) Slide 19 X-linked X-linked Genes are linked to x-chromosome Colorblindness Recessive Recessive Unable to distinguish certain colors, eg. green or red Unable to distinguish certain colors, eg. green or red Slide 20 Sex-influence traits Sex-influence traits Males and females can show different phenotypes even with same genotypes Autosomal Type of Baldness Dominant in males Dominant in males Recessive in females Recessive in females Slide 21 Chromosomal disorders Chromosome problems, not genes Duplication a repeat of several gene sequences on the same chromosome Deletion loss of a chromosome segment Slide 22 Inversion gene sequence separated from chromosome, reinserted into same place, but in reverse Translocation transfer of one chromosome part to a non-homologous chromosome Slide 23 Chromosome number disorders Nondisjunction one or more pairs of chromosomes fail to separate during mitosis or meiosis (produces condition known as aneuploidy more or less chromosomes than the parental number) Down Syndrome one extra chromosome at #21 Slide 24 Sex Chromosome number changes Turner syndrome inheriting only one X chromosome with no additional X or Y chromosome Most X0 zygotes spontaneously abort 0.010.04% of females Non-functional ovaries (infertile) Short height Normal intelligence Slide 25 Kleinfelter Syndrome one extra X chromosome with normal XY (XXY) 0.05-0.2% of males Conditions develop after puberty Smaller testes - usually sterile (not always) Taller than normal Normal intelligence Very subtle phenotype characteristics Slide 26 XYY Condition extra Y chromosome as result of non-disjunction 0.1% of males Taller than average Mild retardation Slide 27 Detection Amnioncentesis Amnioncentesis Removal of amniotic fluid from the amnion, the sac surrounding the fetus Between 14 16 week of pregnancy Slide 28 Chorionic villi sampling Chorionic villi sampling Cells derived from the zygote that grow between uterus and placenta Between 8 th and 10 th week Slide 29 Genetic counseling Genetic counseling Informing a person or couple about their genetic makeup Form of medical guidance about problems that might affect their offspring Slide 30 Treatment Usually treat symptoms Usually treat symptoms Gene therapy Gene therapy Replacement of defective genes with a healthy one Somatic cell gene therapy (body cells) Germ cell gene therapy (eggs or sperms) Poses risks and ethical issues Poses risks and ethical issues </p>
