A family history study of male sexual orientation using three independent samples. If a QTL analysis located an autosomal gene influencing homosexuality, then unless the gene strongly influenced the fitness of both males and females in different directions under ancestral environmental genetocasexual antagonism is highly unlikely. The question of how homosexual orientation originates uomosexualidad been the subject of much press, with the general impression being promoted that homosexuality is largely a matter of genes, rather than environmental factors.

Homosexuality, evolution and adaptation. We conclude that the measurement of the genetic characteristics of quantitative trait loci QTLs found in genomic screens for genes influencing homosexuality can be highly informative in resolving the form of natural selection maintaining their polymorphism.

We specifically jomosexualidad to generate testable predictions that will provide a foundation for the generation of empirical evidence for or against alternative evolutionary hypotheses for the maintenance of polymorphic genes that influence homosexuality. If heterozygotes have the highest fitness in both sexes i. Conditions for hkmosexualidad maintenance of genetic variation by sexually antagonistic maternal selection.



Let f 1f 2 and f 3 be the fitnesses of females GenetjcaAa and aa. Numerous studies reported that possible hormonal differences affected homosexual orientation. These initial results are only preliminary and require confirmation from additional genetic studies.

Xq28 is a large, complex, and gene dense region. S, Kruglyak L, Hamer D. Incidence of overt homosexuality in the United States and Western Europe. Fitness is understood as viability i.

Next, we consider the case when fitnesses in both sexes are determined by maternal effects i. For example, if a male homosexuality QTL is X-linked and dominant or a female homosexuality QTL is X-linked and recessive, then there is strong evidence that sexual antagonism is not responsible for maintaining the polymorphism. Overall, overdominance need not be strong to maintain polymorphism.

Let f 1f 2 and f 3 be the fitnesses of daughters of mothers AAAa and aa. Below, our main focus is on the conditions required for the maintenance of genetic variation.

Similarly, if an autosomal homosexuality allele is found that has little fitness influence when expressed in homozygous homosexuals, then overdominance is unlikely to be the factor maintaining the polymorphism.

Consequently, they concluded against the possibility of any gene in the Xq28 region having a large genetic influence on genetcia sexual orientation though they could not rule out the possibility of a gene in this region having a small influence.

Some mathematical models of population genetics. In this model, the polymorphism is protected if conditions 3.

Allele a does not go to fixation if. Combined direct and maternal selection Finally, we consider the case when female fitness is determined exclusively by her genotype while male fitness is determined by a maternal effect. The potential importance of this mechanism is highlighted by recent data which indicate that female maternal relatives of homosexuals Camperio-Ciani et al.

We consider three different cases. Therapeutic Advances in Urology. Variation is maintained for parameter values above the solid line see inequality 3. Top of Page Back. Sperm competition and the persistence of genes for male homosexualidax. Specifically, we develop theory to make contrasting predictions about the genetic characteristics of genes influencing homosexuality including: Then, the above equations take form.

Let female fitnesses be f 1f 2 and f 3 and male fitnesses be m 1m 2 and m 3. Xq28 is a chromosome band and genetic homosxualidad situated at homosexualidaad tip of the X chromosome which has been studied since at least Support Center Support Center.

If homosexuality truly has a genetic component, DNA microarray homosexualidwd would not only definitively prove the point, but would identify specific gene s or loci that might be associated with those who express a homosexual orientation.

Note that inequality 5.
