Imagine that for a maternally imprinted gene, allele a encodes an inactive version and allele A is the wildtype version. Do you expect the following individuals to exhibit an abnormal phenotype? Why or why not? a) a female of genotype Aa in which the wildtype allele came from her father? b) a male of genotype Aa in which the wildtype allele came from his mother?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 5:58 pm ad1c9bdddf
