Crosses with a negative SCA estimate indicate a partial dominance (Ojo [30]).
If the value of this ratio is zero there is no dominance; if it is greater than zero but less than 1 there is partial dominance and if it is greater than 1 it denotes over-dominance.
1 for [F.sub.2] kernels/ear, indicated that the regression line intercepted the Wr axis above the origin and denoted additive type of gene action with partial dominance controlling the inheritance pattern of this trait.
The magnitudes and signs of the estimates of additive and dominance effects indicate partial dominance of the Ol allele for most of the fatty acids affected by the locus (Table 3).
Furthermore, hybrids may be numerically intermediate between the parents but show a significant dominance deviation toward one parent (partial dominance).

Furthermore, Markovits and Reich link Germany's relations with, and partial dominance of, Europe to key characteristics of its domestic politics, most importantly its commitment to liberal democracy and commercialism, which provide a more or less reluctant Germany with ideological leadership.
(2000a) and Esmail (2007) have mentioned the role of additive, dominance and epistatic effects along with partial dominance in the inheritance of boll weight.
The kernel rows/ear was partial dominance, while, over-dominance was of greater importance for grain yield, kernels/row and 1000-kernel weight.
Four gene effect models were considered for yield, i.e., pure additive [AD0, Aa = (AA+aa)/2, where A and a represent the two alleles at each locus affecting yield], partial dominance [AD1, genetic value of Aa [not equal to] (AA+aa)/2, but is between AA and aa], a combination of partial, complete and overdominance (AD2, the genetic values of AA, Aa, and aa are independent), and digenic interaction (ADE).
