X-linkage of gene influencing homosexuality is, in geneyica of itself, the evidence supporting sexual antagonism rather than overdominance. To compare the conditions for the maintenance of genetic variation by overdominance in the cases of autosomal and X-linked genes, let us first rewrite inequality 3. Direct selection First, we analyse the case when fitness and sexual orientation in both sexes are influenced solely by the direct genetic effects of genes residing in a zygote.

Also note that conditions 3. Hamer’s findings were highlighted in scientific journals including Science[5] Nature [6] and the topic of a mini-symposium in Scientific American.

Kerry Pacer was the youngest homoxexualidad advocate, chosen for her initiation of a “gay-straight alliance” homosexulaidad White County High School in Cleveland, Georgia.

In contrast, on the X chromosome, strong asymmetries in effect size in the currency of fitness are feasible for sexually antagonistic alleles. Mating is random among the individuals who enter the mating pool. The left-hand side of inequality 3.

The results of the study were indistinguishable from the results of the study by Hu et al. Open in a separate window. If homosexuality were purely biological, one would expect that parenting would not influence it. Overall, overdominance need not be strong to maintain polymorphism.


Un estudio por Williams, et al. Assume that the locus under consideration is X-linked. Increasing h broadens the conditions for the maintenance of variation see figure 3 a. Let u be the frequency of A in adult males and pq and r be the frequencies of AAAa and aa in adult females.

La Genйtica y la Homosexualidad: їNace la gente, homosexual?

A speculative consideration of certain forms of sexual selection in man. The junior researcher had assisted in the gene mapping in Hamer’s study.

Gonsiorek J, Weinrich J, editors. Homosexualodad the next generation.

Significant linkage was also detected in the region near the centromere of chromosome 8overlapping with one of the regions detected in a previous genomewide linkage study by the Hamer lab.

C, Poumadere J, Carretta R. The Trinity Who is Jesus Christ? Third, even if one assumes only a small fitness cost to the expression of homosexuality, it appears to be more common in both males and females than can be plausibly explained by mutation—selection balance Kinsey et al.

Síndrome XXY, el trastorno genético que afecta a los genitales y la fertilidad de los hombres

Homosexuality and bisexuality in different populations. Why are people gay? As in the previous case, because the gene under consideration is expressed in females only, whether it is autosomal or X-linked is irrelevant.

Assume that the locus under consideration is autosomal. We consider three different cases. Then, the above equations take form. One of the main goals in our population genetic analysis of homosexuality was to use theory as a guide to focus future research on the genetic basis of homosexuality.

The early studies that reported differences in the brains of homosexuals were complicated by HIV infection and were not substantiated by larger, better controlled studies. At age 30, he came out in the opposite direction, saying, “In my experience, “coming out” from under the influence of the homosexual mindset was the most liberating, beautiful and astonishing thing I’ve ever experienced in my entire life. God of the Gaps Who Created God?


In this model, polymorphism is protected if. The dynamic equations describing specific models are given in appendix A. Recently, a genome-wide QTL screen for male homosexuality Mustanski et al. Introduction There are several reasons for the long-standing interest among evolutionary biologists e.

There are several reasons for the long-standing interest among evolutionary biologists e. Conditions for the maintenance of genetic variation by sexually antagonistic selection in an autosomal locus. An examination of family pedigrees revealed that gay men had more homosexual male relatives through maternal than through paternal lineages, suggesting a linkage to the X chromosome. Dean Hamer 24 found such an association at region Xq This pattern of inheritance suggested that there might be linked genes on the X chromosomesince males always inherit their copy of the X chromosome from their mothers.

Variation is maintained for parameter values between the two lines of the same color.

Xq28 – Wikipedia

Conditions for the maintenance of genetic variation in an X-linked gene when there is overdominance in one sex and directional selection in the other sex. Variation is maintained for parameter values between the two lines.

Second, there are two lines of evidence that homosexuality is influenced by polymorphic genes:
