  1. Chromosomes and Human Inheritance Chapter 12

  2. Impacts, Issues:Strange Genes, Tortured Minds • Exceptional creativity often accompanies neurobiological disorders such as schizophrenia, autism, chronic depression, and bipolar disorder • Examples: Lincoln, Woolf, and Picasso

  3. 12.1 Human Chromosomes • In humans, two sex chromosomes are the basis of sex – human males have XY sex chromosomes, females have XX • All other human chromosomes are autosomes – chromosomes that are the same in males and females

  4. Sex Determination in Humans • Sex of a child is determined by the father • Eggs have an X chromosome; sperm have X or Y

  5. Sex Determination in Humans • The SRY gene on the Y chromosome is the master gene for male sex determination • Triggers formation of testes, which produce the male sex hormone (testosterone) • Without testosterone, ovaries develop and produce female sex hormones (estrogens)

  6. Sexual Development in Humans

  11. Karyotyping • Karyotype • A micrograph of all metaphase chromosomes in a cell, arranged in pairs by size, shape, and length • Detects abnormal chromosome numbers and some structural abnormalities • Construction of a karyotype • Colchicine stops dividing cells at metaphase • Chromosomes are separated, stained, photographed, and digitally rearranged

  16. 12.1 Key ConceptsAutosomes and Sex Chromosomes • All animals have pairs of autosomes – chromosomes that are identical in length, shape, and which genes they carry • Sexually reproducing species also have a pair of sex chromosomes; the members of this pair differ between males and females

  17. 12.2 Autosomal Inheritance Patterns • Many human traits can be traced to autosomal dominant or recessive alleles that are inherited in Mendelian patterns • Some of those alleles cause genetic disorders

  18. Autosomal Dominant Inheritance • A dominant autosomal allele is expressed in homozygotes and heterozygotes • Tends to appear in every generation • With one homozygous recessive and one heterozygous parent, children have a 50% chance of inheriting and displaying the trait • Examples: achondroplasia, Huntington’s disease

  19. Autosomal Recessive Inheritance • Autosomal recessive alleles are expressed only in homozygotes; heterozygotes are carriers and do not have the trait • A child of two carriers has a 25% chance of expressing the trait • Example: galactosemia

  26. Neurobiological Disorders • Most neurobiological disorders do not follow simple patterns of Mendelian inheritance • Depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders • Multiple genes and environmental factors contribute to NBDs

  27. 12.3 Too Young to be Old • Progeria • Genetic disorder that results in accelerated aging • Caused by spontaneous mutations in autosomes

  28. 12.2-12.3 Key ConceptsAutosomal Inheritance • Many genes on autosomes are expressed in Mendelian patterns of simple dominance • Some dominant or recessive alleles result in genetic disorders

  29. 12.4 Examples of X-Linked Inheritance • X chromosome alleles give rise to phenotypes that reflect Mendelian patterns of inheritance • Mutated alleles on the X chromosome cause or contribute to over 300 genetic disorders

  30. X-Linked Inheritance Patterns • More males than females have X-linked recessive genetic disorders • Males have only one X chromosome and can express a single recessive allele • A female heterozygote has two X chromosomes and may not show symptoms • Males transmit an X only to their daughters, not to their sons

  31. X-Linked Recessive Inheritance Patterns

  32. Animation: X-linked inheritance

  33. Some X-Linked Recessive Disorders • Hemophilia A • Bleeding caused by lack of blood-clotting protein • Red-green color blindness • Inability to distinguish certain colors caused by altered photoreceptors in the eyes • Duchenne muscular dystrophy • Degeneration of muscles caused by lack of the structural protein dystrophin

  40. 12.4 Key ConceptsSex-Linked Inheritance • Some traits are affected by genes on the X chromosome • Inheritance patterns of such traits differ in males and females

  41. 12.5 Heritable Changes in Chromosome Structure • On rare occasions, a chromosome’s structure changes; such changes are usually harmful or lethal, rarely neutral or beneficial • A segment of a chromosome may be duplicated, deleted, inverted, or translocated

  42. Duplication • DNA sequences are repeated two or more times; may be caused by unequal crossovers in prophase I

  43. normal chromosome one segment repeated p. 192

  44. Deletion • Loss of some portion of a chromosome; usually causes serious or lethal disorders • Example: Cri-du-chat

  45. segment C deleted p. 192

  46. Deletion: Cri-du-chat

  49. Inversion • Part of the sequence of DNA becomes oriented in the reverse direction, with no molecular loss

  50. segments G, H, I become inverted p. 192
