Red Blood Cells Genetics II
Life Science Course: J Otero CIMATEC Spring 2010

A single gene that consists of three different versions (or alleles) determines the human blood types (A, B, AB andO). Allele A codes for the synthesis of red blood cell that have the type A antigens (type of molecule) on their surface. Allele B codes for the synthesis of red blood cells that have the type Bantigens on their surface, and allele O codes for red blood cells that lack surface antigens. Red blood cells genes are inherited through the process of Codominance. Codominance is a form of inheritance inwhich both inherited alleles (one from each parent) are equally expressed on the phenotype. Red Blood Cells Description

Blood’s Genotypes and Phenotypes Genotype Phenotype AA--------------------------- Type A AO --------------------------- Type A BB --------------------------- Type B BO --------------------------- Type B AB --------------------------- Type AB OO --------------------------- TypeO

Questions 1.) If you have type A blood, what are your possible genotypes? 2.) If you have type B blood, what could your genotypes be? 3.) If you have type AB blood, what must your genotype be?4.) If you have type O blood, what must your genotype be? 5.) Could two individuals with type A blood ever produce any offspring with type O blood? Explain your answer completely. 6.) Could twoindividuals with type O blood ever produce any offspring with type A blood? Explain. 7.) Could a type O individual and a type AB individual ever produce any offspring with type A blood? Explain. 8.) A manhas type A blood and his wife has type B. A physician types the blood of their four children and is amazed to find one of each of the blood types among them. How could this happen? 9.) A woman sues aman for the support of her child. She has type A blood, her child has type O, and the man has type B. Could the man be the father? Explain. 10.) A wealthy elderly couple die together in an accident....
