alleles defined in 1951 yearalleles - alleles (allelomorphs);
alleles - Two or more genes are said to be alleles (of each other), allelic or allelomorphic (to each other) when they (1) occupy the same relative position (locus) on homologous chromosomes, and, when in the same cell, undergo pairing during meiosis; (2) produce different effects on the same set of developmental processes; and (3) can mutate one to another. Several genes allelomorphic to each other are called an allelomorphic series; not more than two members of a series can simultaneously be present in a normal diploid cell.
