BACKGROUND Quantitative genetic studies revealed that not all of the phenotypic variance in PTC taste perception is heritable. AIM To study quantitative variations in PTC tasting ability in twins and to estimate heritability of PTC taste perception on the taste of twin data on males and females sexes separately. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The data for PTC taste sensitivity following the classic method of Harris & Kalmus (1949) were collected on a sample of 141 twin pairs (66 MZ and 75 DZ) and 275… CONTINUE READING
