Sex Determination in Humans:

Phenotype: 50% female , 50% male

Genotype:50% XX , 50% XY

will be heir to the throne,

whether it’s a boy or a girl

under the new succession

rules.


Sex linked inheritance

Sex-Linked Inheritance

  • Sex linked traits: Occur in humans, for which genes are on the X chromosome.

  • Each X-chromosome in the female will have one allele for a gene for a total of 2 alleles per gene

  • Because Males have only one X-chromosome they will only have one allele for a particular gene.

Female

Male


Sex linked inheritance1

Sex-Linked Inheritance

  • Types of inheritance:

    X-linked Dominant: dominant allele carried on one or both of the X-chromosomes will cause expression of the phenotype

    X-linked Recessive:recessive alleles must be present on bothX-chromosomes for a woman in order for the phenotype to be expressed, whereas a man only needs one recessive allele

Recessive allele

Dominant allele


Sex linked disorders

Sex- Linked Disorders

  • There are various disorders that arise from sex-linked inheritance. (Note: the disorder is considered to be the phenotype).

Haemophilia

Severe Combined Immunodeficiency


Colour blindness

Colour Blindness

The gene that causes colour blindness is on the X chromosome.


Sex linked inheritance problem

Sex-linked Inheritance Problem:

  • Color blindness is an sex-linked recessive disorder. Suppose a heterozygous female (carrier) is crossed with a normal male. What would be the genotype and phenotype proportions of the F1 generation?

Defective allele

Phenotype: 2 normal females
