In the RNA molecule, uracil (U) is substituted for thymine. When all segments of the message are covered, the amino acids are spliced together and the protein determined by the message is com-plete and free for use in the cell and for transport from the cell. Figure 2-1 schematically demonstrates this process. Figure 2-1 Schematic representation of polypeptide production from genetic message to final product. ) In its simplest form, a gene is a sequence of codons that, when transcribed and translated, will become a functional product.

Figure 2-12 Standard figures and nomenclature for a pedigree. ) Autosomal Dominant In an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance, only one copy of the mutated gene is required for expression of the trait, and the individual is said to be heterozygous for the trait. There are over 4000 known autosomal dominant conditions, and most occur in the heterozygous form in affected individuals. With a few exceptions, autosomal dominant Page 102 conditions occurring in the homozygous form (two copies of the affected gene) are rare, the phenotype is more severe, and are often lethal.

Conversely, a mutation at the end of the gene may result in a truncated but still translatable mRNA, leading to a partially functional gene product. Point mutations within the gene could result in an amino acid substitution, leading to different products with altered functions. Figure 2-3 demonstrates such an occurrence for sickle cell anemia caused by the substitution of a single base at a single point. The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene is an example of a gene for which over 1000 mutations or alleles have been described to date.
