Hand clasping



Hand clasping



Ann Human Genet 25(2): 141-144



Manner of hand clasping was investigated in 688 Spaniards. The analysis of the series of unrelated individuals suggests a sexual bimodality in the trait, the female series containing higher R frequency than the male. The frequency of R individuals in both sexes increases with age. The analysis of family data shows some parental influence on the type of hand clasping, but no simple Mendelian mechanism is found. There is no assortative mating.
