Question:

How does 2-3 BPG in fetal hemoglobin affect oxygen binding?

Inactive

Answer:

Because 2-3 BPG binds tightly to the T state of the tetramer, hemoglobin will have a decreased affinity for oxygen, therefore increasing oxygen concentration in the tissues of the organism.

Question:

What is Hardy Weinberg equilibrium and how can one use it to predict allele frequencies and genotype frequencies?

Inactive
Mia B.
Answer:

The Hardy Weinberg equilibrium is an equation that states that the allele and genotype frequencies in a certain population will remain the same over time given that there are no mutations, no selection, no gene flow, random mating and infinitive population size. The equation is p^2+2pq+q^2 = 1 and this allows one to determine the proportion of a certain allele or genotype with limited information. P stands for the dominant allele frequency and q stands for the recessive allele frequency.
