    structure of cells or specialised cells might come up. i doubt meiosis and mitosis because it doesnt ask for heavy detail on the spec but it might.

Size:  22.4 KBCould someone explain this please? Not sure if I'm just looking at it wrong, but couldn't the fact that the affected parents have unaffected children also show that CADASIL could be caused by a recessive allele?

    1.What is the evidence in the diagram that CADASIL is caused by a dominant allele?
    2 affected parents have unaffected child or 1 and 2  5 / 6 or if recessive all of 1 and 2’s children would have CADASIL
    2. Person 7 has CADASIL.Is person 7 homozygous or heterozygous for the CADASIL allele?Give evidence for your answer from the diagram.
    heterozygous – has unaffected children or because if homozygous all children would have CADASIL

    I don't get this either, surely if two affected parents had a child all the children would be affected as it is dominant allele? Someone clarify?

    No because if it was a recessive allele that caused it both mum would be rr and dad would be rr.. Therfore if you do the punnet square you will see that for it was recessive allele it would be 100% for all children . The fact that some children got it and others don't means it would have to be dD dD
