Homozygosity for the altered β hemoglobin (SS; sickle cell anemia) causes severe health risks and is often lethal: in sub-Saharan Africa, an estimated 50–80% of individuals with...

... consequent meta- bolic block: substrate 1 is not converted to melanin. Similarly, gene B in another pigment pathway is responsi- ble for the synthesis of enzyme "B" which converts substrate 2 to yellow pigment. Homozygosity for the b allele (which produces no enzyme "B") results in a metabolic block in that...

... offspring may exhibit inbreeding depres- sion due to homozygosity at this locus. Since individ- uals from a regularly cross-pollinating population should be heterozygous at many loci, self-pollinating them should produce marked inbreeding depression. On the other hand, individuals from a regularly self...

The determination of which allele will be passed to the ga- mete is germane only when there is heterozygosity (with homozygosity, the allele passed to the gamete will be the same as that...
