Expression of the SRY gene on the Y chromosome gives rise to the male phenotype in humans. What do you think the inheritance pattern of SRY alleles is called?

Summary Introduction

To determine: The inheritance pattern of SRY alleles.

Introduction: In humans, somatic cells contain two copies of chromosomes and genes. The sex chromosomes that determine sex are X and Y, and the other paired chromosomes are autosomes. Females have two X chromosomes, and males have an X and a Y chromosome. The location of SRY gene is on the short arm of Y chromosome and is known as testes-determining factor. It is involved in initiation of male phenotype development.

Explanation of Solution

The SRY gene codes the protein known as sex-determining region Y (SRY) protein. It determines the sex of the human embryo. It contributes to development of male gonads called testes and the secondary male sexual characteristics of the respective species...
