Open Access Research Article

Molecular Genetic Study on VNTR-polymorphism of Two Cytokine Genes Antagonist of the Receptor of Interleukin 1 (rs2234663) and Interleukin 4 (rs8179190) Associated with Dental Caries in Children

Received: 24 December 2021;  Published: 27 June 2022;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2202158

Abstract

In this study, we investigated VNTR polymorphisms in intron 2 of the IL1RN gene (rs2234663) and intron 3 of the IL4 gene (rs8179190) related to the development of caries in school children (N = 196) with mixed bite dentition from Krasnodarskii Krai. The genotypes A1/A1 [...]
Open Access Review

Anatomical Variation, Hominins, Species, and Self-Domestication

Received: 19 October 2021;  Published: 11 January 2022;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2201145

Abstract

The evolution of hominins, members of the zoological tribe Hominini, has been a much-studied topic, and the construction of phylogenetic trees has been the key method in molecular evolutionary studies. How scientists determine the phylogenetic trees are governed by the assumptions they place on the construction of similarities [...]
