In humans, the absence of sweat glands depends on a recessive gene linked to the floor. In the family, father and son have this anomaly

In humans, the absence of sweat glands depends on a recessive gene linked to the floor. In the family, father and son have this anomaly, and the mother is healthy. 1) What is the probability (%) that the son will inherit the above trait from the father? 2) What is the probability (%) of the birth of a daughter with no sweat glands in this family?

Genes

X – absence of disease

X ° – disease

R father

X ° Y

× mother

X ° X

Gametes X °, Y X °, X
F1 X ° X °, X ° X, X ° Y, XY

Since the sign is linked to the X chromosome, and the son is sick, then the mother is the carrier of the disease (heterozygous). Genotypes of parents and offspring

Cleavage: sick daughters 25%, daughters of carriers 25%, sick sons 25%, healthy sons 25%

1) 25%

2) 25%
