The genetical mechanism of hand clasping



The genetical mechanism of hand clasping



Japanese Jour Genetics 35(8): 238-246



In clasping the hands, some persons place their right thumbs on their left ones (R-situation), and the others have the opposite habit (L-situation). The character of R-situation is inherited by one dominant gene. The homozygous dominants, heterozygotes and a part of homozygous recessives (the genotype of L-situation) manifest the R-situation by a phenocopy. The frequency of the gene has a racial difference, which is higher in Japanese than in Europeans. The manifestation rate, that of phenocopy, is higher in adults than in children.
