Active Transport Active transport is the transport of substances through the cell membrane by means of an energy-consuming transport system (transport ATPase).

Women, on the other hand, are only affected when they are homozygous carriers of the gene (very rare) (Fig. 7c). When they are heterozygous they are phenotypically healthy and only transfer the disease-causing gene to their offspring (so-called carriers) (Fig. 7b). It follows that 50 % of their sons are affected (show the trait) and 50 % of their daughters are again carriers. Examples of X-linked recessive hereditary conditions include red− green color blindness (frequency 1 : 15), hemophilia A and B (bleeding disease, frequency 1 : 10 000) and Duchenne muscular dystrophy (frequency 1 : 3000).

The animals of the F1 generation are all black and solid color (AaBb). If the two alleles for skin color and color distribution are located on different chromosomes, and if the two pairs of alleles can combine independently in forming sex cells, theoretically four egg or sperm cells should be distinguishable genotypically: AB, Ab, aB, and ab.
