It means heterozygous. Basically means it carries a gene for a different colour/pattern morph but doesn't show it visually.

Hope that makes sense lol :lol:

hetrozygous - its a genetic term for when an animal looks normal,but carries a gene to a mutation..be that a colour variant or a pattern.
like albino,axanthic hypomelanistic

Het up


Meaning
Agitated.


Origin
Het is a shortened form of heated and has been used that way since the 14th century.



That simple sense of het up as heated up is first recorded in the US newspaper The Freeborn County Standard, July 1884:
"Set it right down here by the fire Susan, so 't'll get het up before you knead it into loaves."
:shock:

An organism is a heterozygote or is heterozygous at a locus or gene when it has different alleles occupying the gene's position in each of the homologous chromosomes. In diploid organisms, the two different alleles were inherited from the organism's two parents. For example a heterozygous individual would have the allele combination Pp

what i learned from gcse double science.

het is a type of gene that can be either dominant or resessive. in organisms there is always two genes, one from the mother and one from the father.

if the mother is a normal (without hets), or double dominant, the genes she will carry are XX
if the father was a recessive, his genes would be xx.
all of the offspring would be het, having either Xx or xX genes.

if both paretns were hets, having Xx (or xX, there the same) the offspring would be 1/4 dominant XX, 1/4 recessive xx, and 1/4 recessive Xx (or xX).

it can easily be worked out in this table:


the mothers genes are in red, and the fathers in blue.
the diagram shows the likely outcome of the babies.
green is a het
mauve is the dominant
and yellow the ressesive.

if the one of the parents had differnt genes, the table would change acoordingly.

hope this helps.
