OMG!! it was my mistake, sorry, damn i knew the answer but for some reason i wrote 50%, but hey if i say in the answer 1:4, but then say prob = 1/4 +1/4 = 1/2, do you think i get the mark, or out of 5 marks (i did the diagram correctly btw), how much would i get? thanks
The probability doesnt change because they had one child with the disease. There is still a 1 in 4 chance the next child will have the disease as the parental genotypes remain the same

And actually that january06 paper supports the answer that we got too(1/4).

Work it out and you'll find that the probability that a child inherits sickle cell anaemia is 0.5, so, the probability of a child inheriting the disease in the future is still 0.5, they're the same.

Ok so on the genetic cross I didn't do R's for the alleles, will I still get marks? I don't know why but I used Vn for normal vision and Vp for pigmentosa. I mentioned that the parents were heterozygous etc and did this test cross:

Gametes Parent 1: Vn Vp
Gametes Parent 2: Vn Vp
so offspring: VnVn, VnVp, VnVp, VpVp, and so theres a 0.25 probability that there child with be a sufferer.

What do you think?

The alphabet that you chose to use doesn't matter as long as you indicate it. I used A and a, but i wrote under those alphabets the meaning of it. For example, under A(i wrote dominant) and under a i wrote recessive. I think the examiner wouldn't be that stupid not to know it...

that particular amino acid was the one which disulphide bonds occured between
so without the disulphide bonds the insuin was active
so active insulin promotes glycogenesis
therefore lower bgl conc

does a carrier mean that it will have a disease, regardless of it being homozygous recessive?
