a woman is red-green colorblind and she mates with a man who has normal color vision. knowing that red-green colorblindness is controlled by a gene on the x chromosome what can you predict for their children with regard to inheritance of color vision??
- Red-green color blindness is a sex-linked genetic mutation on the OPN1LW or OPN1MW gene that is passed on the X chromosome. Females have two X chromosomes so if a woman inherits one normal X chromosome and one with the mutation she won’t display the mutation since it is a recessive gene.
