Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
What happens to Schala ranks fairly high on my list of “messed up things to happen to a video game character”. In no particular order, we have Schala’s being forced to use her magic to help out Lavos and later being stuck with Lavos drifting through time until the events of Chrono Cross begin to take place, Magus’ entire life after his sister vanishes, Aerith Gainsborough’s death at the end of the first disc of Final Fantasy VII, and everything that happens to Tales Of Destiny‘s Leon Magnus. I can’t even begin to sum that last one up eloquently without having to describe everything that happens to him…
I’m in the process of renovating some sites. I apologize if images don’t come up when and/or where they used to!
Or… I don’t know what it is, but I like to try to solve “puzzles” like this one.
Talking to one of my friends about science kind of inspired me to find out the mystery behind the alleles that I have in regards to the RH factor. In other words, what genes I actually have in regards to my blood type. Having found out during my pregnancy that I was A+ and producing a child that was A-, I wanted to know what that meant for me. If I should have another child in the future, it would help for me to know this, especially if I procreate with someone who is RH-negative or potentially has the gene to produce an RH-negative kid.
If you are RH-negative, there is a total absence of genes coding for RH-positivity. If the + gene is there, you have to be RH-positive… but you can have, or produce, RH-negative babies. Only if you have the recessive RH-negative gene, of course, and only then. Having the + allele from my father, I don’t ever have to worry about there being an RH incompatibility between me and any child that resides in my body. But you can not pass on a gene that you yourself do not have, and for Jason to be A-, that means that I have to have the recessive gene in my body for RH negativity. It’s obviously recessive if I have the + allele from my father, which constitutes me being A+.
Example: +- (me) PLUS — (Jason’s father) EQUALS — (Jason)
Example #2: +- (my father) PLUS +- (my mother) EQUALS +- (me)
++ (my father) PLUS — (my mother) EQUALS +- (me)
I only put the caps there the way I did so as to make it easier to read that.
However, knowing that the blood type alleles are able to “combine”… such as there being A, B, AB and O types, I’m not sure if this also holds true for the RH factor as well. For all we know, I might not produce as many RH antibodies in my blood as someone who inherited two positive alleles would, although that’s only relevant as far as sating my occasional idle curiosity goes. Being dorky when it comes to science, this question only means that I want to know what my genotype, or genetic type, looks like if it were magnified, compared to someone whose genotype or genetic type were straight up ++’s. I’m dorky.
Tiny Note: I mean, combine as in both of the alleles co-dominating (AB).
Everyone has that thing, though, they feel passionate about… and for me, that thing is genetics. Well, genetics and the human body, learning about it and eventually being able to help little people with the problems they may have.
Side Note: Having this stuff drawn out in front of you really helps, sort of like the little genotype diagrams some of us might have drawn in your biology classes. The RH factor is only a little more stringent in that someone that is RH-negative cannot have the RH-positive allele. In some other instances, people who possess certain genes may not always exhibit them, especially the case in… say, females who carry the hemophiliac gene, but who are not hemophiliac. But that’s another tangent I might save for sometime later.
This answers whether Jason can pass on any “recessive” + gene, too. Nope.
