Chapter 12 Patterns of Inheritance Vocabulary Allele – alternative forms of a specific gene that is caused by differences in nucleotide sequences at the same gene locus on two homologous chromosomes autosome – all the chromosomes that occur in pairs and have identical appearance in both males and females of a species carrier – an individual who is heterozygous for a recessive condition; displays the dominant phenotype but can pass on the recessive allele to offspring codominance – the relation between two alleles of a gene, such that both alleles are phenotypically expressed in heterozygous individuals (ex: AB blood types; organisms contain both A and B as a heterozygote when they are individually homozygotes) cross-fertilization – the union of sperm and egg from two individuals of the same species crossing over – the exchange of corresponding segments of the chromatids of two homologous chromosomes during meiosis cystic fibrosis – an inherited disorder characterized by the buildup of salt in th...
