Abstract

To date, no specific genetic markers have been associated with human hand preference. In this study, we examined relations between human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alleles and hand preference. Based on established associations between handedness and autoimmune diseases related to HLA alleles, we predicted that left-handers would be more likely to possess the A1, B8, and DR3 alleles. In a sample of 664 individuals who filled out the Annett Handedness Questionnaire, these predictions were generally supported. fn addition, we found that left-handedness and the B8 allele were negatively related to number of offspring, after controlling for age. These results are discussed in light of the developmental instability model of the origins of handedness, as well as singlemajor gene models.
