Section 1
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Basic Patterns of Human Inheritance
Recessive Genetic Disorders
 A recessive
trait is
expressed
when the
individual is
homozygous
recessive for
the trait.

Table 11.2 Recessive Genetic Disorders in Humans
Section 1
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Basic Patterns of Human Inheritance
Cystic Fibrosis
 Affects the mucus-producing glands,
digestive enzymes, and sweat glands
 Chloride ions are not absorbed into the
cells of a person with cystic fibrosis but
are excreted in the sweat.
 Without sufficient chloride ions in the cells,
a thick mucus is secreted.
Section 1
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Basic Patterns of Human Inheritance
Albinism
 Caused by altered genes, resulting in the
absence of the skin pigment melanin in hair
and eyes
 White hair
 Very pale skin
 Pink pupils
Section 1
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Basic Patterns of Human Inheritance
Tay-Sachs Disease
 Caused by the absence of the enzymes
responsible for breaking down fatty acids
called gangliosides
 Gangliosides accumulate in the brain,
inflating brain nerve cells and causing
mental deterioration.

Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Basic Patterns of Human Inheritance
Galactosemia
 Recessive genetic disorder characterized by
the inability of the body to digest galactose.

Basic Patterns of Human Inheritance
Dominant Genetic Disorders
 Huntington’s disease affects the nervous
system.
 Achondroplasia is a genetic condition that
causes small body size and limbs that are
comparatively short.

Pedigrees
 A diagram that traces the inheritance of a
particular trait through several generations
Section 1
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Basic Patterns of Human Inheritance
Inferring Genotypes
 Knowing physical traits can determine what
genes an individual is most likely to have.
Predicting Disorders
 Record keeping helps scientists use
pedigree analysis to study inheritance
patterns, determine phenotypes, and
ascertain genotypes.
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Incomplete Dominance
 The heterozygous phenotype is an
intermediate phenotype between the two
homozygous phenotypes.
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Codominance
 Both alleles are expressed in the
heterozygous condition.
 Sickle-cell disease is one example.
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Sickle-cell Disease
Normal red blood cell
 Changes in hemoglobin
cause red blood cells to
change to a sickle shape.
 People who are
heterozygous for the trait
have both normal and
sickle-shaped cells.
Sickle cell
7766x
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Multiple Alleles
 Blood groups in
humans
 ABO blood groups
have three forms
of alleles.
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Coat Color of Rabbits
 Multiple alleles can demonstrate a hierarchy
of dominance.
 In rabbits, four alleles code for coat color:
C, cch, ch, and c.
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Epistasis
 Variety is the result of one allele hiding the
effects of another allele.
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Sex Determination
 Sex chromosomes
determine an
individual’s gender.
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Dosage Compensation
 The X chromosome carries a variety of genes
that are necessary for the development of both
females and males.
 The Y chromosome mainly has genes that relate
to the development of male characteristics.
 In females, one X chromosome is inactivated in
each cell. The inactivated X chromosome is
visible in stained cells as a Barr body.
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Sex-Linked Traits
 Genes located on the X chromosome
 Red-green color blindness
 Hemophilia
Sex-Linked Traits
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Polygenic Traits
 Polygenic traits arise from the interaction of
multiple pairs of genes.
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Environmental Influences
 Environmental factors influence an
organism’s phenotype
 Diet and exercise
 Sunlight and water
 Temperature
Section 2
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Complex Patterns of Inheritance
Twin Studies
 Helps scientists separate genetic contributions
from environmental contributions
 Traits that appear frequently in identical twins
are at least partially controlled by heredity.
 Traits expressed differently in identical twins
are strongly influenced by environment.
Section 3
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Chromosomes and Human Heredity
Karyotype Studies
 Karyotype—micrograph in which the pairs of
homologous chromosomes are arranged in
decreasing size.
 Images of chromosomes stained during
metaphase
 Chromosomes are arranged in decreasing
size to produce a micrograph.
Section 3
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Chromosomes and Human Heredity
Telomeres
 Telomere caps consist of DNA associated
with proteins.
 Serves a protective function for the structure
of the chromosome
Section 3
Complex Inheritance and Human Heredity
Chromosomes and Human Heredity
Nondisjunction
 Cell division during which sister chromatids
fail to separate properly
 Down syndrome, also called trisomy 21
