Question: in horses gene e converts red pigment to black pigment...

Question details

In horses, gene E converts red pigment to black pigment. The recessive allele (e) results in loss of function and red pigment. The dominant (A) allele of gene A prevents expression of the E gene over much of the body, but allows expression in specific locations, creating a pattern of black and red coloring referred to as Bay. The recessive (a) allele results in loss of function and unrestricted expression of E. The cross between two horses with genotype EeAa can produce offspring of three possible colorations: Bay, solid red or solid black. What is/are the possible genotype(s) of a solid red offspring from this cross? OeeA (must be dominant for A) E A eeAA, eeAa, eeaa O Must be aa, genotype at E locus does not matter (can be EE, Ee or ee) О Eeaa
