  Homozygote - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
When an organism is referred to as being homozygous for a specific gene, it means that it carries two identical copies of that gene for a given trait on the two corresponding chromosomes (e.g., the genotype is AA or aa).
A homozygous recessive genotype occurs when a particular locus has two copies of the recessive allele (e.g., aa).
In humans and many other animals it refers in particular to X-linked genes in males who under usual circumstances have only one X chromosome and are homozygous for all genes that are located on the X-chromosome.

 AGA Fact Sheet - The Inheritance of Horns and Scurs   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Identifying homozygous polled bulls is especially important because each calf crop sired by a homozygous polled bull will have a frequency for the horned gene that is half that of their dams'.
Breeding homozygous polled bulls to double-polled females should produce all polled calves, and two-thirds of the calves should be homozygous polled.
Breeding homozygous polled bulls to polled females that are daughters of homozygous polled bulls should produce all polled calves, and three-fourths of the calves should be homozygous polled.

 Homozygous Paint Horses
The homozygous horse has two identical tobiano genes and must be sired by a tobiano, and have a tobiano for a mother.
Test breeding on solid mares is used to confirm the status of individuals thought to be homozygous, as it is possible for these genes to be 'unhooked' and not passed together.
It cannot, however, be a homozygous tobiano, since both parents are not tobiano horses.

 Past Issues of A Lil Bit of Color   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
A horse who is homozygous for the tobiano gene means that it has two copies of the tobiano gene, one inherited from EACH parent.
Whenever we breed a homozygous tobiano to another homozygous, all of the resulting foals will also be homozygous as there are no recessive "t" genes available to be passed down from either parent.
The homozygous "phenotype" (think photo type) is a tobiano with "cat tracks" or "ink spots" in the white areas not necessarily connected to the larger blocks of dark color.

 Influence of nutrient deprivation on gene expressivity in the homozygous lanceolate mutant.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
The homozygous lanceolate mutant in L. esculentum ranges in phenotype from a small and leafless hypocotyl (reduced) to a bushy plant (narrow) with small leaves and sterile inflorescences.
Homozygous mutant progeny of fertilized and nonfertilized plants were classified into leafy and leafless categories (Table 1).
The hypothesis that environmental stress influences expressivity of the La gene in the homozygous lanceolate mutant was supported by the earlier study of Stettler and Alldredge (1967) as well as by the present study.

 Detection of homozygous deletions in tumors by hybridization of representational difference analysis (RDA) products to ...
The candidate region for a homozygous deletion is characterized by an accumulation of overlapping YACs highlighting a region irrespective of the enzyme that was used to generate the representation.
Screening for homozygous deletions in several tumors by STS-PCR analysis (25) is an expensive and time consuming procedure if a large region of interest has to be investigated.
Furthermore, a homozygous deletion but not simple loss of a polymorphic fragment will result in RDA products that consistently highlight a region irrespective of the restriction enzyme that was used to create the representations.

Table 1 illustrates the expression of polledness or horns and what genes and traits can be expected to be passed to the offspring from the various matings.
Cattle producers should also keep in mind that a proven homozygous bull will produce some horned calves if he is bred to horned or polled cows that carry the African horn gene.
As you can see there are ultimately three pair of genes that may determine if cattle have horn-like tissue on their head in the form of horns or scurs.

 A pedigree of homozygous familial hyperalphalipoproteinemia.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
In the homozygotes, the lipid composition of HDL was found to be normal while the ratio of HDL lipids to apoproteins A-I and A-II tended to be increased.
All five children of the two homozygous individuals and two additional first degree relatives were considered to be heterozygous, since their HDL-C values were moderately elevated, with other lipid levels being normal.
The family study thus substantiated the hypothesis, as Glueck et al insisted in 1975, that this lipoprotein disorder is inherited by autosomal dominant transmission.
