A significant inverse correlation with gestational age and with the health status of the infants and their mothers, as well as a positive correlation with the mothers' mean FA values were documented. Expand
Fluctuating asymmetry as a possible measure of developmental homeostasis in humans: a review.
Experimental data and the literature support the first hypothesis and indicate that individuals who suffer from chromosomal or polygenic morbidity and from anomalies or conditions of development with still unknown genetic components demonstrate an elevated FA of various structures. Expand
Circulating levels of receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappaB ligand/osteoprotegerin/macrophage-colony stimulating factor in a presumably healthy human population.

Age and sex affect differently the interindividual variation of OPG, RANKL and M-CSF, which are potential markers for benign and malignant processes in bone. Expand
Study of genetic variance in the fluctuating asymmetry of anthropometrical traits.
The extent of genetic determination of individual FA measurements was generally low, albeit statistically significant in some cases, and even these correlations were inconsistent between samples and relatives. Expand
Relationship between genetic anomalies of different levels and deviations in dermatoglyphic traits. Part 6: Dermatoglyphic peculiarities of males and females with cleft lip (with or without cleft…

The main objectives of the present study were to find DT and FA indices, which could be "marker" traits and could indicate the degree of developmental instability of the organism and to explore the possibility of using DT, FA, Div and DA indices of CL patients and their parents and to predict the likelihood of the disease appearing in the offsprings of apparently healthy individuals. Expand
Dermatoglyphic traits as possible markers of developmental processes in humans.
It was found that individuals who were in the center of the morphological trait distribution, have reduced fluctuating asymmetry in their ridge counts (RC) and the use of dermatoglyphic traits as "markers" of developmental processes are discussed. Expand

The best‐fitting and most parsimonious model of age‐related pattern of hand OA was the polynomial two‐interval linear model and showed a higher rate of OA development during the relatively young ages, 32–34 years than later on. Expand
Quantitative genetic study of head size related phenotypes in ethnically homogeneous Chuvasha pedigrees
The patterns of the intergenerational familial transmission of 12 head size related traits in a large ethnically homogeneous sample of Chuvasha pedigrees were examined to establish the pattern of head traits inheritance. Expand
Segregation analysis reveals a major gene effect in compact and cancellous bone mineral density in 2 populations.
Test again the possibility of major gene control of BMD in a different ethnic sample of pedigrees, namely, the Chuvasha and finds that there is a significant major gene effect on both compact and cancellous BMD. Expand
Association of ENPP1 gene polymorphisms with hand osteoarthritis in a Chuvasha population
Testing the hypothesis that genetic variation at the ENPP1 locus is involved in the etiology of osteoarthritis of the hand revealed a substantial contribution of genetic factors to the overall trait variance in this homogeneous population of nuclear families. Expand
