Homosexuality in men and the number of older brothers.

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. In this system, the polymorphism is protected i.

Molecular investigations into complex behavior: Twin studies showed that there likely are genetic influences for homosexuality, although similar studies have shown some genetic influences for homophobia and even opposition to abortion. Both these papers studied the case of a single autosomal, diallelic locus, and they concentrated on the conditions geneitca invasion of an allele promoting homosexuality. Generations are discrete and non-overlapping.

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

Sexual behavior in rams: Throughout the manuscript, A is an allele that has little or no influence on sexual orientation, and allele a masculinizes or feminizes both sexes, and thereby increases the probability of homosexuality in the discordant sex. Below, our main focus is on the conditions required for the maintenance of genetic variation. In the above example, we assumed that the degree of dominance is equal in both sexes. Because there is an empirically established maternal effect influencing the expression of homosexuality, we also sought to examine how heritable maternal effects might influence these genetic predictions.


Invasion and maintenance of alleles that influence mating and parental success. If heterozygotes have the highest fitness in both sexes i.

No such gender by dominance association is predicted on the autosomes, in which case the gene should be dominant in the sex in which it is favoured. Articles from Proceedings of the Royal Society B: C, Poumadere J, Carretta R.

In sum, population genetic models can provide useful predictions for evaluating the selective factors maintaining polymorphism contributing to the homosexual behaviour. In this study no link to Xq28 was found among homosexual females, indicating a different genetic pathway as for most sex-specific phenotypes.

Quantitative and theoretical analyses of the relation between older brothers and homosexuality in men. The fact that sexual orientation is not constant for many individuals, but can change over time suggests that at least part of sexual orientation is actually sexual preference. If a gene influencing homosexuality is X-linked and if the polymorphism is being maintained by sexual antagonism, then a gene causing female homosexuality should show strong dominance and one causing male homosexuality should show a strong level of recessiveness.

However, it is possible that a gene favoring male homosexuality could “hide” within the human genome if it were located on the X-chromosome, where it could be carried by reproducing females, and not be subject to negative selection by non-reproducing males. In later sections, we will consider the cases, where maternal effects influence these characters. Assume that allele a increases male fitness but decreases female fitness. In contrast, on the X chromosome, strong asymmetries in effect size in the currency of fitness are feasible for sexually antagonistic alleles.

A speculative consideration of certain forms of sexual selection in man.


In the next generation. Note that the second solid thin line coincides with the y -axis.

First, homoeexualidad 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.

The study by Hamer et al. Then, in the next generation and up to a normalizing factor, the adult female frequencies are. This is a strong prediction. References Arnqvist G, Rowe L. Although homosexualodad in both sexes is possible, the more plausible scenario for overdominance of a feminizing or masculinizing allele would be overdominance in one sex and directional selection in the other sex, as described subsequently. Scribner’s; New York, NY: I am not a huge fan of Neo Darwinian evolution.

If the locus under consideration is X-linked, tenetica in the next generation and up to a normalizing factor. Assume that female fitness is determined genetically.

Genetic models of homosexuality: generating testable predictions

Views Read Edit View history. Although our work does not provide a unique prediction that will differentiate between overdominance versus sexual antagonism in all cases, it does identify diagnostic patterns.

For example, there is a curious relationship between birth order and the incidence of male homosexuality. As a last example, overdominance is unlikely to maintain polymorphism for an X-linked QTL causing male homosexuality if male homosexuals have low fitness. If this is not so, then the most favourable scenario for the maintenance of variation is when allele a is dominant in the sex, where it is advantageous and is recessive in the sex where it is deleterious.
