AVPR1A and OXTR polymorphisms are associated with sexual and reproductive behavioral phenotypes in humans.
Distinct life history patterns have been observed and characterized in humans and appear to have a heritable component. The specific genetic variation responsible for the heritability is unknown. This study tested two plausible candidate genes for association with human life history characteristics using a sample of Caucasian men and women taken from a large Australian community survey. Associations were found between two polymorphisms within the AVPR1A gene and age of first sexual intercourse...[Show more]
