  • What happens in red blood cells with sickle cell disease?

    In the globin a glutamic acid on the 6th position is substituted with a Valine.
  • Is a disease always genetic?

    Other options are: epigenetics, gene-gene interactions (epistases), chromosome mutations, developmental noise, enviromental influence.
  • What are the constrains studying human genetics?

    It is considered unethical to breed humans.
    Monozygotic twins are a solution though. They start with the same genetic material but the environment influences both different.
  • What is incomplete expressivity?

    Incomplete expressivity is when traits, like hair colour, express in combination with each other and in a quantitative way.
  • What are the inheritance properties of sickle cell anaemia?

    It is a recessive allele on an autosomal chromosome.
  • Duchenne muscular distrophy genetics and molecular biology

    This is a preview. There are 17 more flashcards available for chapter 19/02/2014

  • On what chromosome is the mutation causing Duchenne placed?

    Duchenne is a sex linked disease and is probably located on the X chromosome.
  • What seqeunces are prone to break easily in the DNA?

    Short repettative sequences.
  • What happens mostly with a deletion that causes a frameshift?

    The cause a premature stop codon, terminating the mRNA transcription.
  • What is so special about distrophy?

    The gene is huge compared to other genes. It's half the size of the complete E-Coli DNA.
  • What is the principle of linkage mapping?

    When to genes are tightly linked and will be passed on together.
