El desarrollo y la importancia de la epistasis en los procesos evolutivos de las especies y en el mejoramiento genetico de plantas han sido discutidos desde el inicio de los estudios en genetica.
The complete model, represented by the sum of effects of the mean (m), additive (a), dominance (d), and their interactions (aa, ad, dd), showed that the effect of epistasis contributed 10.
Key words: Popcorn, epistasis, additive x additive, anthesis, ear height.
Even if there is a lot of epistasis, there's still lots of different ways to the same function.
Additive [d] and additive A- dominant epistasis [j] gene effects were found for fertile tillers in 10 dS m-1 of NaCl salinity.
During necropsy, intense epistasis, oral cavity bleeding, hemothorax and hemoperitoneum were observed, suggesting that the cause of death of this maned wolf was traumatism, probably due to road killing.
En algunos casos no se logran modelos validos para explicar lo observado en las mediciones experimentales, lo que implica la necesidad de ampliar el modelo a uno mas complejo que incluya terminos de interaccion alelica o epistasis (Dhall y Hundal, 2006).
Epistasis describes how well different mutations combine in their effect on resistance, and therefore determines which mutational pathway will be preferred by evolution when several mutations are needed for full resistance.
A restricted partition method as a nonparametric approach was recently developed for estimating epistasis, and it overcame the problem in the conventional epistatic analysis (Culverhouse et al.
These genes can be linked; genes can also interact via epistasis or complementation.
The influence such combinations have on an organization's adaptive fitness is known as epistasis.
It is worth noting that this is not a case of dominance because epistasis genes influence nonallelic genes.
Epistasis, one of the genetic phenomena likely involved in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus, is best defined as:
Therefore, intraoperative bleeding during endoscopic sinus surgery and septorhinoplasty is reduced and posterior epistasis is controlled (Douglas & Wormald, 2006).
