Recessiveness!!! Important

Postby MrGenetic » Oct 14 2017 6:31 am

What is the recessiveness? I think that not expressing is not true explaining. Actually, Recessiveness is about phenotype. There is two or more allele in locus. Dominant allele provide dominant phenotype, recessive allele provide recessive, masket phenotype. Recessive allele is not physically repressed like imprinting or epistatis. Expression could be done; but there is no regulative or functional expression for exhibiting in trait. So, trait is masked due to dominant allele's trait. Is that true?

You have raised an interesting question and I found a website that might explain it better for you. Good luck!

You might find this interesting...it concerns an RNA-target mechanism.http://www.inra.fr/en/Scientists-Studen ... expression

Hi Guys,
A recessive gene is a gene that can be masked by a dominant gene. In order to have a trait that is expressed by a recessive gene, such as blue eyes, you must get the gene for blue eyes from both of your parents. You might remember the word recessive from biology, where it most often appears.
It also describe the inheritance patterns of certain traits. Recessive gene also called allele.

Hi ElectrOTechBiZ,

You are describing the term "recessive" as it comes from classical Mendelian inheritance, which is fine for the original definition of the word. But in this age of whole genome sequencing a more advanced understanding is needed. I would recommend that you also check out the website I recommended earlier.

Cheers!
