what is a PTC gene?
im studying for a science test and on the science review sheet they say this:
Genes (on chromosomes)
-mutations > a change in a gene ( red hair mutations)
so what is a PTC gene??

Only thing I can think of is Premature Termination Codon.
This is a mutation (a "Truncation Mutation") which changes a codon halfway through the gene into a STOP codon, and results in a protein that is missing half of its sequence when expressed.
