But in a heterozygote potency is usually more or less reduced.
Eosin is allelomorphic to white and the white-eosin compound or heterozygote has the color of the eosin male.
If the individual was really a heterozygote, approximately fifty per cent.
In this character, then, dominance almost always fails to show itself in the heterozygote and often fails in pure dominants.
heterozygote (different yolk), a zygotic individual which contains both members of an allelomorphic pair.
The heterozygote produced by crossing these forms is intermediate in size and appearance.
Some are probably matings of two heterozygotes, others of two recessives, and others still of a recessive with a heterozygote.

An organism that has different alleles at a particular gene locus on homologous chromosomes.
