Growth Hormones - Biology - Gene Locus
... Genes for human growth hormone, known as growth hormone 1 (somatotropin) and growth hormone 2, are localized in the q22-24 region of chromosome 17 and are closely related to human chorionic somatomammotropin (a ...
Dominance (genetics) - Molecular Mechanisms
... It is now understood that a gene locus includes a long series (hundreds to thousands) of bases or nucleotides of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) at a particular point on a chromosome ... In this process, different alleles at a locus may or may not be transcribed, and if transcribed may be translated to slightly different forms of the same protein (called isoforms) ... diploid organism, the DNA sequences of the two alleles present at any gene locus may be identical (homozygous) or different (heterozygous) ...
HBB - Gene Locus
... The gene is located in the β-globin locus ... Expression of beta globin and the neighboring globins in the β-globin locus is controlled by single locus control region (LCR) ... The order of the genes in the beta-globin cluster is 5' - epsilon – gamma-G – gamma-A – delta – beta - 3' ...
