Phenotype: CF illness
The Genetic Basis of
in a human cell.
2 sex chromosomes
arranged into 23 base pairs.
Cystic Fibrosis is associated with
a gene on base pair # . . .
A closer look at the
gene's of a CF carrier
would reveal ...
The genes that contain the instructions for the CFTR protein are found in this DNA
Ribosomes . .
... reading the RNA of a carrier ...
. . should produce
normal CFTR protein
if 2 carriers reproduced ....
there is a 25% chance
their offspring would have ...
2 copies of the mutation
Ribosomes . .
... reading the RNA
of this offspring ...
. . produce defective
3 base pairs in the DNA are missing
leading to Cystic Fibrosis
missing one crucial amino acid
