Please consider the portion of the alpha globin gene cluster shown below. The leftmost gene is an inactive pseudogene and the other two are functional alpha genes, alpha 2 and alpha2. (We are going to ignore the remaining genes in this cluster.) The three genes are very similar in sequence, with the similarity extending up and downstream of the coding regions. ψα2 a2 al As might be expected, illegitimate recombination is frequent in this region, with the result that many variant chromosomes are present in the human population. Please diagram recombination events that could produce the following: a. a chromosome with three active alpha genes b. an alpha2/alphal fusion gene (not necessarily alone)
