I answered part a, not sure if its correct tho. I need someone to look it over and tell me if it's correct and answer part b.

The agouti locus in mice has three alleles: a is recessive and confers a black coat, A is dominant to a and confers an agouti coat, and AY is dominant to both and confers a yellow coat. AY is also a recessive lethal. In addition, the independently assorting c allele is recessive (to C) and prevents the mice from making any fur pigments at all, resulting in albinos.

(a) Two mice are crossed, and produce offspring in a ratio of 3 albino : 2 yellow : 1 black. What are the genotypes and phenotypes of the parent mice?

AY(yellow)(recessice lethal) > A(agouti) > a(black) C > c(albino)

Offspring ratio:

3 albino cc

2 yellow AY

1 black aa

Genotypes and phenotypes of the parent mice:

Cc AYa -------> yellow coat

Cc aa --------> black coat

(b) When AACC agouti mice are crossed to aacc albino mice, the progeny are all agouti. When these F1 mice are testcrossed, they produce progeny in a ratio of 1 agouti : 2 albino : 1 black. What would be the phenotypic ratio among the progeny if the F1 mice were crossed to each other instead?

Answer #1

answer 1-

(a)yes ,your answer is correct.

(b) coat colour in mice is influenced by two loci , A and C. when AACC agounti mice are crossed too aacc Albino mice, the progeny are all agounti .when there F1 mice are crossed together, they produce progeny in a ratio of

9 agounti : 4 Albino :3 black.

(C gene is epistatic to A gene)

    19. Two different gene loci are responsible for determining mouse coat color. A recessive lethal allele contributing to yellow coat color also exists for one of these two gene loci. The following genotypic and phenotypic information about the mouse coat color alleles is known: (6) Agouti = A-B- • Yellow = AA'B-or A'aB-or A'ab- Lethal (inviable zygote) = A'A- Black = aaB- Albino = -bb a.

    1) Coat color in mice is determined by several independently assorting autosomal genes. Gene A is involved in the distribution of pigment along the hair. A dominant allele (A) produces a hair color called "agouti"--the hair has dark pigment at the base and tip of each hair shaft and yellow pigment in the central portion of the shaft. Homozygous recessive mice (aa) are missing the yellow stripe and thus have solid dark-colored hair. Gene B is involved in the color...

    1. At least 3 independently assorting loci are known to govern coat color in mice. The genotype C- will allow pigment to be produced by 2 other genes. The cc genotype does not allow pigment production resulting in albino mice. The striped “agouti” hair pattern depends on the genotype A- and the aa genotype is nonagouti. Finally, the color of the pigment may be black (B-) or brown (bb). Five different coat colors may be produced by the action of...

    7. In mice the coat color called agouti results from a dominant allele A. Mice that are AA or Aa have agouti fur. Mice that are aa have black fur. However to get any coat color at all, at least one copy of a second dominant allele C of a different locus must be present. If a mouse has genotype cc, the mouse is albino regardless of what is happening at the other gene pair. Suppose two mice with genotypes...

What phenotypic ratios do you expect in the progeny? (True or False) a. if these genes are unlinked: 3/8 yellow, 1/8 agouti, 1/2 albino b. if these genes are unlinked: 1/3 yellow, 1/6 agouti, 1/2...

    In rats, several independently assorting autosomal genes affect coat color. Gene A controls the distribution of yellow pigment in hair, and gene B causes black pigmentation. The two genes interact as follows: A–B– (gray), A–bb (yellow), aaB– (black), and aabb (cream). These genotypes are only expressed in the presence of the dominant allele of a third gene, C; rats with genotype cc are albino. a.    Deduce the genotype of each albino mice, to the extent that is possible, in the...
