As learnt in

Co-dominance explained in red-blood cells -

Red-blood cells are controlled by gene (I). RBC's have sugar attached to surface which is controlled by the gene (I). The gene (I) has three alleles : IA , IB and i

 

- wherein

The allele of gene (I), IA and IB process sugar of different forms while  i does not produce any.

 

 A gene shows codominance when both alleles in heterozygous condition, express their traits independently instead of showing dominant-recessive relationship and such alleles are called codominant alleles.
