After sequencing the Gold gene in Yez, Xerxes and Bob you’ve determined that the gold (9) and silver (G) alteles differ in only three spots • In exon 2 the gold (9) allele has the codon CAC where the silver (G) allele has CAA. • In intron 3 the gold (a) allele has one less base pair than the silver (G) allele. . In exon 4 the gold (a) allele has the codon TAA where the silver allele has TAC. Note: sequence given is from the coding strand. All three differences exist at once; If you sequence the gold allele it is identical to the sile allele except for these three things. Which of the three differences between the silver and gold alleles is least likely to explain the phenotype difference? Explain your choice. In other words, something about the product of the silver allele is making the horn silver, something about the product of the gold allele is making the horn gold. There are only three differences between the silver and gold alleles (the rest of the DNA sequence is identical). So, which of the three difference likely isn’t playing a role in making the product silver versus gold. Note: if you feel you need a codon table, you can find one here.
