Variations on a Theme by Mendel

What are the possible genotypes for the following blood types?

  1. a. type A
  2. b. type B
  3. c. type O
  4. d. type AB

a.

Summary Introduction

To determine: The possible genotypes of the individuals with blood group A.

Introduction: The human blood group is an example of codominance where the alleles for the two antigens A and B are equally dominant. This means that when the two antigens A and B are present the blood group is AB while in the absence of both the antigens the blood group is O.

Explanation of Solution

The genotype for the individual with blood group A can be “IA IA” or “IA i”. This is because the IA allele is dominant over “i” allele and therefore in the ho...
