    Presentation Transcript
    1. Polyploidy …more than two haploid sets of chromosomes are present, • 2n = diploid, • 3n = triploid, • 4n = tetraploid, • etc.

    2. Amphidiploid …double diploid, 2n1 + 2n2 …have balanced gametes of the type n1 + n2, these gametes fuse to make fertile 2n1 + 2n2.

    3. n = 9 B. napas ( Oil rape, canola oil) 2n1 + 2n2 = 38 n = 10 amphidiploid Allopolyploidy Applications B. oleracea(cabbage, cauliflower, Brocolli, kale, etc.) 2n = 18 n1 + n2 = 19 B. campestris(turnip, turnip rape) 2n = 20

    4. 4n x 2n = 3n? • The creation of triploids can be accomplished by crossing a tetraploid with a diploid, • Most triploid individuals are sterile.

    5. Generation of a Triploid Cells

    6. Meiosis in a Triploid Organism

    7. Why Wouldn’t this work?

    8. Environmental Applications? grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) • Triploid grass carp prefer pondweeds, • do not prefer plants such as cattail, water lily, etc.

    9. Polyploidy Summary • More than 2 whole sets of chromosomes, • Autopolyploidy, • from the same genome, • naturally occurring, or induced, • often results in larger varieties, • Allopolyploidy, • from different genomes, • naturally occurring, or induced, • often results in larger varieties, • Autotriploids, • most often sterile • can produce beneficial traits.

    10. Monoploidy …a haploid of a diploid is monoploid, …has one chromosome set.

    11. Monoploid • male wasps, bees and ants have only 1 haploid genome, • males develop from unfertilized eggs, • gametes are formed by mitosis.

    12. Monoploid Applications • monoploid plants can be created by culturing pollen grains (n = 1), • the population of haploid organisms is then screened for favorable traits, • the plants are then treated with colchicine which generates a 2n plant homozygous for the favorable traits.

    13. Chromosomal Mutations • chromosome number, • structure,

    14. Chromosome Structure • Changes in chromosome structure can come about due to, deletions duplications rearrangements

    15. Chromosomal Deletions • a deletion results in a lost portion of a chromosome,

    16. Deletion Causative Agents heat, radiation, viruses, chemicals, errors in recombination.

    17. Terminal Deletions Off the End

    18. Intercalary Deletions From the Middle

    19. Intercalary Deletions From the Middle

    20. Intercalary Terminal Recognizing Deletions

    21. Intercalary Terminal Homologous Pairs? Hemizygous Hemizygous: gene is present in a single dose. Psuedodominance: hemizygous genes are expressed.

    22. Deletions …result in partial monosomy, • remember monosomy: 2n, -1, …the organism is monosomic for the portion of the chromosome that is deleted, …as in monosomy, most segmental deletions are deleterious.

    23. Cri-du-chat Syndrome(46, -5p)

    24. 46, -5p ...terminal deletion of the small arm (petite arm) of chromosome 5, • Cri-du-chat Syndrome, • 0.002% live births, • anatomic mutations, • often mental retardation, • abnormal formation of vocal mechanisms.

    25. Chromosomal Duplication ...an event that results in the increase in the number of copies of a particular chromosomal region,

    26. Duplication Cause and Effect Causes: • duplications often result from unequal crossing over, • can occur via errors in replication during S-Phase. Effects: • results in gene redundancy, • produces phenotypic variation, • may provide an important source for genetic variability during evolution.

    27. Unequal Crossing Over Produces both duplications and deletions!

    28. Duplication Phenotypes

    29. Duplication in Evolution …essential genes do not tolerate mutation, …duplications of essential genes, then subsequent mutations, confers adaptive potential to the organism, …new gene family members are ‘recruited’ to perform new functions.

    30. flowering plant moss need uptake need uptake transport to other tissue transport to other tissue transport to seeds algae nutrients need uptake

    31. Arabidopsis

    32. Chromosome Structure • Changes in chromosome structure can come about due to, deletions duplications rearrangements

    33. Chromosomal Inversions …inversion: aberration in which a portion of the chromosome is turned around 180o.

    34. A B C B A Paracentric Inversion ...an inversion in which the centomere is not included, A B C ...a paracentric inversion does not change arm length ratio.

    35. A B C B A C Inversion Heterozygotes …an organism with one wild-type and one chromosome containing an inversion, …not heterozygous for the genes, heterozygous for the chromosomes.

    36. Inversion Loopno crossing over

    37. Paracentric Produces haploid gamete.

    38. Paracentric Produces gamete with inversion.

    39. Paracentric Produces a chromosome with two centromeres. Nonviable gametes.

    40. Dicentric ...a chromosome having two centromeres;

    41. Non-Viable (gametes) Segregate

    42. Dicentric/Ascentric …results only when the crossing over occurs within the region of the paracentric inversion,

    43. Paracentric No centromeres. Deletions. Nonviable gametes.

    44. Acentric …a chromosome having no centromeres, …segregates to daughter cells randomly, or is lost during cell division, …deletions impart partial monosomy.

    45. Paracentric Outcomes 1 Normal Gamete, 1 Inversion Gamete, No Crossover Classes Recombination is not inhibited, but recombinant gametes are selected against.

    46. A B C A C B Pericentric Inversion ...an inversion in which the centromere is included, ...a pericentric inversion results in a change in chromosome arm length.

    47. Pericentric

    48. Recombination and Inversions • Paracentric and Pericentric; • 1 Normal Gamete, • 1 Inverted Gamete, • No Crossover Classes = No Recombination, Inversions select against recombinant gametes, thus preserves co-segregation of specific alleles.

    49. Inversions and Evolution • Inversions ‘lock’ specific alleles together, • all offspring get their alleles from either a wild-type, or inverted chromosome, • If the ‘set of alleles’ is advantageous, the set can be maintained in the population.

    50. Assignment • Understand the differences between ‘Interference’, and the suppression of recombination resulting from inversions, • Be able to recognize data, and predict results given either case.
