Hey!! so I need help with a biology question if anybody can help??
A person with the genetic disorder Klinefelter's syndrome has an extra xchromosome. Affected individuals have the genotype XXY. What can you infer is most likely the genetic mutation that results in Klinefelter's syndrome?
Nondisjunction during meiosis
Complete duplication of chromosomes during polyploidy
Translocation during genetic replication
Crossing over during meiosis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2okay so its not the first one...right?? because meiosis is the homologous chromosomes separate and migrate to opposite sides of the cell. and that is not nondisjunction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13Actually, I think that it is nondisjunction, because he has an extra X due to a genetic disorder. Here's the part on nondisjunction:
