What is a codominant allele?
Also question is, what is the meaning of codominant?
Codominance Definition. Codominance occurs when two versions, or “alleles,” of the same gene are present in a living thing, and both are expressed. Instead of one trait being dominant over the other, both traits appear. Codominance is easy to spot in plants and animals that have more than one pigment color.
Beside above, how many alleles are in Codominance? two alleles
Also Know, what is an example of a Codominance?
When two alleles for a trait are equally expressed with neither being recessive or dominant, it creates codominance. Examples of codominance include a person with type AB blood, which means that both the A allele and the B allele are equally expressed.
What is a codominant disease?
In codominant inheritance, two different versions (alleles) of a gene are expressed, and each version makes a slightly different protein. Examples of conditions caused by multiple genes or gene/environment interactions include heart disease, type 2 diabetes, schizophrenia, and certain types of cancer.
