Evidence for common controls over inheritance of bone quantity and body size from segregation analysis in a pedigreed colony of nonhuman primates (Macaca nemestrina).


The genetic determinants of bone mineral quantity and body size and their postulated interaction are just beginning to be elucidated. The heritability of bone quantity and its relationship to components of body size were therefore investigated using segregation analysis applied to a large pedigreed nonhuman primate (Macaca nemestrina) breeding colony. The… (More)
