Question
The questions below all refer to the following pedigree. The locus for allele D/d determines how cilia
function within the body. Mutations at this allele cause abnormal ciliary function, resulting in a clinical
disorder characterized by trequent respiratory intections (including in the ears, sinuses, and lungs), as
well as infertility. In the pedigree, black circles/squares represent individuals affected by the disorder
White circles/squares represent unaffected individuals. Remember, if a trait is rare in a population
(such as this one), we assume individuals marrying into the family are NOT carriers unless the
information provided indicates otherwise.
