Quick Reference

An allele whose effect can only be distinguished from that of the normal allele by special tests. For example, two + alleles +1 and +2 may be indistinguishable (i.e., +1/+1, +2/+2, and +2/+1 individuals are phenotypically wild type). However, when compounded with a mutant allele a, +1 and +2 prove to be distinguishable (i.e., a/+1 and a/+2 individuals are observably different).
