Why must the genotype for Huntington's chorea be heterozygous instead of homozygous dominant?

The homozygous dominant form is lethal, because it produces twice as much protein (HH = two doses of H) as Hh would. Only if you assume that the alleles for Huntingtons are co-dominant. According to an article called Homozygotes for Huntington Disease, 'the clinical expression of HD among homozygotes is not more severe than observed in heterozygotes.'

What did Mendel do in his second law?

The second Mendelian Law is the Law of Segregation. It states that in a cross the parental traits do not merge in the first offspring generation (ie. the recessive, "weaker" trait does not disappear for good) but instead appear unchanged in the second offspring generation. For example, if you cross homozygous dwarf pea plants to homozygous tall, all members of the first offspring generation will be tall. This makes it seem as if the dwarf trait disappears, but it does not. If you inbreed the first offspring generation, you get 25% dwarf plants in the second offspring generation. So the "lost" trait reappears.

Why you use fifth generation instead of 4th generation?

If you have XY are you homozygous or heterozygous?

The words homozygous and heterozygous don't apply to the chromosomes that you have but instead refer to the differing alleles (versions) of a gene you have. For example if you have a brown hair allele and a blond hair allele, you are said to be heterozygous for the hair colour gene. If you have two of the same allele you are said to be homozygous. As such one person will heterozygous for some of the thousands of human genes and homozygous for others. If you are XY it means you are male, and XX means you are female.

Is down syndrome homozygous or heterozygous?

It is not determined by a genotype, but has to do with the number of chromosomes the individual has. A person with down syndrome has 47 chromosomes, instead of 46 (an extra copy of chromosome 21).

If a plant has homozygous tall genes what kimd of genes does the plant have?

If a plant is homozygous tall then it would possess two tall genes instead of a short gene. If for the notation you use B to represent the dominant tall gene and b to represent the recessive short gene the plant would carry and "BB" compliment of genes.
