Is wavy hair dominant or recessive?

Is wavy hair dominant or recessive?

Straight vs curly hair is one example of incomplete dominance. A person with one copy of the straight hair allele and one copy of the curly hair allele will have wavy hair.

What is the pattern of inheritance of Child with wavy hair?

A wavy haired person can contribute either a C or an s gene. If paired to a straight haired person (ss), then the kids would either have straight (ss) or wavy hair (Cs).

Can wavy haired parents have a curly haired child?

No, it is not possible for two “purebred” straight-haired parents to produce a curly-haired child. However, two wavy-haired parents, or “straight-haired” parents who carry the curly gene but do not express it clearly due to incomplete dominance, can indeed produce curly-haired children.

What are the possible genotypes of the parents of a child who has wavy hair HH )?

What are the possible genotypes of the parents of a child who has wavy hair (Hh)? The possible genotypes of the parents child having wavy hair is (HH X hh 100%) or (HH X Hh 50%) or (Hh X Hh 50%) or (Hh X hh 50%)- Incomplete dominace.

Can you consider having wavy hair as a case of incomplete dominance pattern Why do you say so?

Explanation: Becaue incomplete dominance pattern produces a heterozygote that shows a phenotype that is intermediate between the two homozygous phenotypes. neither allele is dominant over the other. wavy hair is either a dominant or recessive trait, thus, it is not a product of incomplete dominance.

What are the genotypes of the offspring?

An offspring’s genotype is the result of the combination of genes in the sex cells or gametes (sperm and ova) that came together in its conception. One sex cell came from each parent. Sex cells normally only have one copy of the gene for each trait (e.g., one copy of the Y or G form of the gene in the example above).

How are alleles written?

Alleles may be designated by a single capital or lower case letter (e.g., L is the symbol of Lobe eye in Drosophila) or by two , three or more letter or letter/number combinations (Wr – Wrinkled, per – periodicity). Alleles may have superscripts (wa) or subscripts (A1) or both.

What is the difference between protein and gene?

A gene is a stretch of DNA on a chromosome that has the instructions for making a protein. Each chromosome has many genes with humans having over 22,000 genes in all. A gene’s instructions for a protein are written in the three letter code I referred to before. A protein is a molecular machine that does a specific job.
