# Complex Genetics: 15 Possible Alleles for Height Priority

• caters
In summary, these numbers have come to life and they have 10 operational chromosomes( +, -, *, /, ^, arrow arrow(tetration), nth root, logarithm, super root, and super logarithm). They also have 4 sex chromosomes each of which can be X or Y. With these sex chromosomes it is like this:XXXX = femaleXXXY = maleXXYY = hermaphrodite(bi-fertile at that meaning that both of its reproductive systems can produce gametes)andXYYY = maleAs far as whether they are overweight or underweight it never gets to that point in the long term.

In my math world novel these numbers have come to life and they have 10 operational chromosomes( +, -, *, /, ^, arrow arrow(tetration), nth root, logarithm, super root, and super logarithm). They also have 4 sex chromosomes each of which can be X or Y. With these sex chromosomes it is like this:

XXXX = female
XXXY = male
XXYY = hermaphrodite(bi-fertile at that meaning that both of its reproductive systems can produce gametes)
and
XYYY = male

As far as whether they are overweight or underweight it never gets to that point in the long term.

For the potentially overweight case the brain sends a signal to all parts of the body saying "Use the fat reserves and make them top priority for energy" This accelerates fat metabolism by quite a bit and ATP production by a lot(with more than 100 ATP produced per fatty acid). This causes there to be less adipose tissue because there are less fat reserves and more adipocytes undergo apoptosis which makes them still be at a healthy weight.

For the potentially underweight case the brain sends a signal saying "increase muscle mass and store glycogen as fat". It then sends another signal to another part of the brain telling the light person to eat. This increases digestion and the person is still at a healthy weight.

Anyway to get to the point, these numbers have a whole chromosome with lots of genes that determines their size including an overall height gene. Some genes take priority over others as far as determining size.
However this is complex as well because for example 2 L alleles in the heart gene will cause the lungs to be large which will cause the chest to be large which will cause the person to be tall. However 2 L alleles in the ovary gene will only change the size of the ovaries. Also 2 L alleles in the brain gene will cause the skull to be large which will cause the head to be large which will cause the person to be tall. This isn't the complex part of the priorities. What makes it complex is when the Lungs, Heart, Brain, Muscles, Bones, and Skin genes have different combinations of alleles since these are all high priority genes. These have 15 possible alleles. They are:
XXXXXXS
XXXXXS
XXXXS
XXXS
XXS
XS
S
M
L
XL
XXL
XXXL
XXXXL
XXXXXL
and
XXXXXXL

XXXXXXS is the natural 0th percentile and XXXXXXL is the natural 100th percentile. To get the offspring size the mother size and father size are added up for most of the possible combinations. This means that the sizes are like positive and negative numbers since S+L=M, XS+XL=M, etc. This is like incomplete dominance. However for combinations that when added up would lead to something smaller than XXXXXXS or larger than XXXXXXL the larger size dominates. This is like complete dominance with a dominant allele and a recessive allele.

Would this be complex dominance since there are 2 kinds of dominance for the same alleles?

I'm trying to understand how your scheme would fit into a novel. It seems it's just a mix of arithmetic operations and some biology terminology that doesn't match real biological theory.

Well this is what goes on inside the body of the number. In the novel I talk about this mainly at doctors appointments(Short term overweight and underweight) and when a number becomes pregnant(Chromosomes and genetics). I might also talk about it when scientists are researching how the body gets rid of extra weight when it is obese or morbidly obese and if that is any different from how it does it when it is overweight or whether it just takes longer.

Some genes being high priority seems very real since genes get turned on and off all the time except for those high priority genes which are either always off or always on. The only exception to this is the M phase of the cell cycle when all genes are turned off since no protein and RNA production occurs.

The operation that is to be done with the mother's numerical value and the father's numerical value is not only determined by dominance but also by the first sperm to fertilize the egg(10 sperm, each with a different operational chromosome fertilize the egg with 4 out of those 10 having sex chromosomes).

Incomplete and complete dominance is very real and so are genes that can be dominant to 1 allele and recessive to another allele.

## What is complex genetics and how does it relate to height?

Complex genetics refers to the study of how multiple genes and their interactions contribute to a particular trait or characteristic. In the case of height, there are 15 possible alleles (gene variants) that can influence an individual's height.

## What are alleles and how do they affect height?

Alleles are different versions of a gene that can result in different traits or characteristics. In the case of height, some alleles may contribute to taller height while others may result in shorter height. The combination of these alleles from an individual's parents will determine their height potential.

## How do scientists study complex genetics and height?

Scientists study complex genetics and height through various methods such as genome-wide association studies, twin studies, and family studies. These methods help identify which genes and alleles are associated with height and how they interact with each other.

## What are some factors that can influence height besides genetics?

Besides genetics, factors such as nutrition, environment, and lifestyle can also play a role in determining an individual's height. For example, a person with a genetic potential for tall height may not reach their full height potential if they are malnourished or exposed to poor living conditions.

## Can height be predicted based on an individual's complex genetics?

While scientists have identified several genes and alleles associated with height, it is difficult to accurately predict an individual's height based on their genetics alone. Other factors, such as environmental influences, can also affect height. Additionally, the expression of these genes can vary, making it challenging to predict an individual's exact height.
