Re: Single dominant gene

Dominance (genetics) - Wikipedia Dominance in genetics is a relationship between alleles of one gene, in which the effect on phenotype of one allele masks the contribution of a second allele at the same locus.

Re: Single dominant gene

Single gene defect or mutation - Embryology If the changes in a genome are restricted to a single gene, a single- gene defect ensues. Usually this involves a point mutation and leads to an altered amino acid sequence in the proteins that are coded in this section of the DNA.

OMIM Entry - + 120140 - COLLAGEN, TYPE II, ALPHA-1; COL2A1 By analysis of DNA from human-mouse cell hybrids, Sangiorgi et al. (1984) localized the COL2A1 gene to chromosome 12. The results were confirmed by similar experiments with the bovine cDNA probe.

Autosomal dominant: MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia Autosomal dominant is one of many ways that a trait or disorder can be passed down through families. In an autosomal dominant disease, if you get the abnormal gene from only one parent, you can get the disease.

OMIM Entry - * 608537 - VHL GENE; VHL Latif et al. (1993) determined that the VHL gene contains at least 3 exons. Zatyka et al. (2002) analyzed the promoter region of the VHL gene and found 4 regions of conservation between human, primate, and rodent sequences.

Basic Principles of Genetics: Glossary of Terms alternate forms or varieties of a gene. The alleles for a trait occupy the same locus or position on homologous chromosomes and thus govern the same trait.

Variations of a single gene drive diverse pigeon feather. In a new study, a team led by University of Utah biologists has discovered that different versions of a single gene, called NDP (Norrie Disease Protein), have unexpected links between color.
