Biology  Coding strand  Codominant

In both codominance and incomplete dominance, both alleles for a trait are dominant. In codominance a heterozygous individual expresses both simultaneously without any blending.

Codominance is a relationship between two versions of a gene. Individuals receive one version of a gene, called an allele, from each parent.

In this case, both alleles are dominant.
They are independent, so there is no 'blending' as in the snapdragons, instead the phenotype is a result of the full expression of both alleles.

Codominance Defined for pairs of alleles. The situation in which an animal heterozygous for two alleles (A1 and A2 at the A locus) expresses both of the phenotypes observed in the two corresponding homozygotes.

The observation of a phenotype caused by independent expression of both alleles of a gene in a diploid.

codominance A type of inheritance in which heterozygotes fully express both alleles.
codon A sequence of three nucleotides in messenger RNA that codes for a single amino acid.

Codominance and Multiple Alleles- Example: ABO blood group
Up to this point, we have discussed two possible alleles for any gene locus. For example, at the flower color locus, there is either the red or the white allele (A or a).

A phenotypic situation in which both alleles are expressed in the heterozygote.

Codominance: Equal effect on the phenotype of two alleles of the same locus (as opposed to recessive and dominant).

Situation in which two different alleles for a genetic trait are both expressed.

The property of an allele of a given gene, that can be setected in a heterozygote.

The ABO blood group is a good example of codominance and multiple alleles. There are three allele that control the ABO blood groups. If there are more than two allele of a gene then they are called multiple allele.

In another type of allelic relationship, termed codominance, the heterozygote produces a phenotype that incorporates both phenotypes of the homozygotes.

The relative effects of two alleles range from complete dominance of one allele, through incomplete dominance of either allele, to codominance of both alleles.

Extended expression patterns seen in diploid organisms include facets of incomplete dominance, codominance, and multiple alleles .
