Genetics Unit
Biology 30

Multiple Alleles
• have 3 or more alleles for the same gene (or at
a single locus)
• In Other Words – there are 3 or more alleles that
create the different traits.
• at most one individual will have 2 alleles or 1
pair (unit factors exist in pairs.)
• in a species, however, many alternative forms
exist
Example – ABO Blood Group
• this deals with the presence of antigens
– These are like labels/ name tags on the blood
cells.
• Each individual has 1 of 4 phenotypes
– Type A
– Type B
– Type AB
– Type O
– What are you?
The Info You Need To Know
• Gene designated is I (isoagglutinogen)
– I = A antigen
– I = B antigen
– i = no antigen
•
IA
IB
and are both
codominant
• IA and IB are both
dominant to I
(type O)

• B is the rarest allele.
• 16% of the population have it.

Practice
• If a person with Type
A (Heterozygous)
blood married and
had children with a
person who has Type
B (Heterozygous)
blood, what would the
genotypic and
phenotypic ratios be?
– I Ai X
I Bi
IA
i
IB
IAIB
IBi
i
IAi
ii
Genotypic Ratio:
1 IAIB : 1 IAi: 1 IBi: 1 ii
Phenotypic Ratio:
1 AB: 1 A: 1 B: 1 O
Practice
• If you crossed a person
with type 0 with
heterozygous type B,
what would the
phenotypic ratio be?
– ii X IBi
– Phenotypic Ratio:
• 1B:1O
