What is the genotype of the parent heterozygous for type A blood?
When one of the inherited alleles is A and the other is B, the genotype is heterozygous and the blood type is AB. AB blood type is an example of co-dominance since both traits are expressed equally. Type A: The genotype is either AA or AO.
Can two parents with the same blood type have a child with a different blood type?
No it doesn’t. Neither of your parents has to have the same blood type as you. For example if one of your parents was AB+ and the other was O+, they could only have A and B kids. In other words, most likely none of their kids would share either parent’s blood type.
What are the 2 genotypes possible for a person who has a blood?
A person with blood type A could have the genotype AA or AO. A person with blood type B could have the genotype BB or BO. A person with blood type AB as the genotype AB. And a person with blood type O has the genotype OO.
Could two individuals with Type O blood ever produce any offspring with type A blood?
Could two individuals with type O blood ever produce any ‘offspring with type A blood? Explain. No, they have a 0% chance of producing a type A child because they don’t have the IA allele. Yes, they have a 50% chance of producing type A child with type “A” blood.
What should O negative blood types eat?
Those with type O blood should choose high-protein foods and eat lots of meat, vegetables, fish, and fruit but limit grains, beans, and legumes. To lose weight, seafood, kelp, red meat, broccoli, spinach, and olive oil are best; wheat, corn, and dairy are to be avoided.
Why can’t o negative donate platelets?
O- is in short supply due to the demand as universal donor. B- is just an insanely rare blood type, less than 1% in caucasians if I remember right. Important because the only 2 types this type can receive (without risking sensitization to D) is b neg and o neg.
Do you get paid more for O negative plasma?
All blood types (A, B, AB, and O) are paid the same amount, with one exception: if you have Rh-negative blood, you may earn more than Rh-positive donors since Rh-negative blood is rarer than Rh-positive blood and necessary to create certain medications.
Is O negative plasma universal?
The universal blood type is O negative (O-). Donors with type O- blood have the unique power to help anyone in need of a blood transfusion. Red blood cells from O- donors can be transfused to anyone, regardless of the person’s blood type
Can O negative blood donate plasma?
Type O negative blood can be transfused to patients with any blood type and is often needed in emergency situations when there isn’t time to determine a patient’s blood type. Plasma can be donated through a blood or platelet donation, or through a plasma-only donation where available.
Why Donating plasma is bad?
What are side effects of donating plasma? As mentioned above, there is risk of low immunoglobulin levels because it takes time for the levels to replenish. Those who donate frequently and long term may also be at risk for anemia from incidental loss of red cells during donation
How rare is O negative CMV negative blood?
Type O negative blood donors provide the universal blood type most often used in emergency situations. This blood type is not common – less than 8% of the population has it. But there is an even rarer donor needed to help save newborn infants.
