    When homologous chromosomes crossover, what occurs?
    Specific proteins break the two strands and re-join them with their homologs.

    A certain (hypothetical) organism is diploid, has either blue or orange wings as the consequence of one of its genes on chromosome 12, and has either long or short antennae as the result of a second gene on chromosome 19 (figure 13.4 in book). A certain female's number 12 chromosomes both have the blue gene and number 19 chromosomes both have the long gene. As cells in her ovaries undergo meiosis, her resulting eggs (ova) may have which of the following?
    One chromosome 12 with one blue gene and one chromosome 19 with one long gene.

    Garrod's information about the enzyme alteration resulting in alkaptonuria led to further elucidation of the same pathway in humans. Phenylketonuria (PKU) occurs when another enzyme in the pathway is altered or missing, resulting in a failure of phenylalanine (phe) to be metabolized to another amino acid: tyrosine. Tyrosine is an earlier substrate in the pathway altered alkaptonuria. How might PKU affect the presence or absence of alkaptonuria?
    It would have no effect because tyrosine is also available from the diet.
