Variations on a Theme by Mendel

What is the chance that a man with type AB blood and a woman with type A blood whose mother is type O can produce a child that is:

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

a.

Summary Introduction

To determine: The chances of the child to have blood group A when his mother is type A and father is type AB.

Introduction: The human blood group system 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 type A blood group has red blood cells with the type A surface antigen. This is particular to the blood group of humans and some other primates. The blood group with type A will produce antibodies against the blood groups B and AB as the blood of such individual does not recognize the B antigen.
