- adv. In a homozygous manner
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Second, harmful alleles that are recessive, rare, and because of their rarity ordinarily carried only in the heterozygous situation can become just common enough within a small population that they occur homozygously.
As harmful recessive alleles begin to occur homozygously among inbred individuals, those alleles are expressed in ways that reduce evolutionary fitness.
The function of Notch signaling during skin homeostasis was characterized using mice bearing homozygously floxed alleles for
This increase was potentiated by apolipoprotein E (ApoE) deficiency as shown by treatment of transgenic mice homozygously lacking murine ApoE.
More than 70\% of the NAB mice were found to be homozygous for the HAB-specific sequence, whereas less than 1\% carried the LAB-specific allele homozygously.
Being recessive, those alleles remain unexpressed so long as they don’t occur homozygously.
