Morphogenetic variability and handedness in Montenegro and Serbia

Morphogenetic variability and handedness in Montenegro and Serbia This study tries to establish correlations between the types of handedness and several morphophysiological characteristics, controlled by one or a small number of genes with alternative dominant recessive manifestation. The population-genetic homozygosity degree study includes the analysis of the presence, distribution and individual traits combination in left-handed and right-handed persons. It was conducted at three localities in two states, Serbia (SRB) and Montenegro (MNE). Our hypothesis is that a possible genetic load due to increased recessive homozygosity, being a potential population-genetic parameter of left-handedness manifestation, may cause some change in other morpho-physiological characters. The average proportion of 23 studied homozygously-recessive characters (HRC’s) was similar among observed left-handed individuals in the studied localities. It varied from 10.5 ± 0.4 in Serbia to 10.7 ± 0.3 in MNE. The differences were somewhat bigger among right-handed persons, varying from 8.7 ± 0.3 in MNE to 9.1 ± 0.3 HRC’s in Serbia. However, in all localities the average homozygosity was significantly higher among left-handed school children. The number of HRC’s among 400 individuals varied from 2 to 16 among right-handed and from 4 to 19 among left-handed persons. There were no differences in scholar scores between left-handed and right-handed children, although small differences were found between two state samples. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

This study tries to establish correlations between the types of handedness and several morphophysiological characteristics, controlled by one or a small number of genes with alternative dominant recessive manifestation. The population-genetic homozygosity degree study includes the analysis of the presence, distribution and individual traits combination in left-handed and right-handed persons. It was conducted at three localities in two states, Serbia (SRB) and Montenegro (MNE). Our hypothesis is that a possible genetic load due to increased recessive homozygosity, being a potential population-genetic parameter of left-handedness manifestation, may cause some change in other morpho-physiological characters. The average proportion of 23 studied homozygously-recessive characters (HRC’s) was similar among observed left-handed individuals in the studied localities. It varied from 10.5 ± 0.4 in Serbia to 10.7 ± 0.3 in MNE. The differences were somewhat bigger among right-handed persons, varying from 8.7 ± 0.3 in MNE to 9.1 ± 0.3 HRC’s in Serbia. However, in all localities the average homozygosity was significantly higher among left-handed school children. The number of HRC’s among 400 individuals varied from 2 to 16 among right-handed and from 4 to 19 among left-handed persons. There were no differences in scholar scores between left-handed and right-handed children, although small differences were found between two state samples.
