Apparently, the gene is autosomal dominant. That's like the brown eye allele predominating over the blue eye allele in humans. That you are heterozygous for this gene indicates that you have one normal allele and one mutated allele.

You've got one mutated gene and one normal gene. The mutatated gene is stronger than the normal one, and will yield the mutated phenotype. In this case, the mutation will show up in both the homozygous A/A condition and the A/B heterozygous conditions, but not B/B homozygous.

Does this help? If not, feel free to reply to this post.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
