Question details

Based on these concepts, choose statements that correlate Mendels four postulates with what is now known about genes, alleles, and homologous chromosomes Select the six correct statements. Dominant alleles can become codominant alleles during mitosis. Unit factors occur in pairs. Some gene pairs on nonhomologous chromosomes can aggregate after separation and mitosis or meiosis would stop. Different gene pairs on nonhomologous chromosomes will separate independently from each other during meiosis. During mitosis and meiosis, when chromosomes are visible in their characteristic shapes, members of a homologous pair have different sizes and exhibit opposite centromere locations. Some possible gametic combinations are formed with higher probability if dominant alleles take part in meiosis. Some genes have dominant and recessive alleles. Alleles segregate from each other during gamete formation at anaphase I. One gene pair separates independently from other gene pairs. Different gene pairs on nonhomologous chromosomes will separate independently from each other during meiosis.

Genes are transmitted from generation to generation on vehicles called chromosomes Chromosomes, which exist in pairs in diploid organisms, provide the basis of biparental inheritance. During gamete formation, chromosomes are distributed according to postulates first described by Gregor Mendel, based on his nineteenth-century research with the garden pea. Mendelian postulates prescribe that homologou:s chromosomes segregate from one another and assort independently with other segregating homologs during gamete formation.
