Abstract


A population study of polymorphisms of EFEMP1, ZBTB38, HHIP, LCORL, ADAMTSL3, CDH13, JAZF1, IGF1R, GHSR, CABLES1, IFNG, VDR3, and IGFBP3 genes, which possibly influence human height, was carried out using PCR-RFLP. Population frequencies of alleles and genotypes for these genes were established. A correlation between the rs572169 variant of GSHR gene and male height was found . We suggest a model for prediction of human height on the basis of logistic regression method. The obtained data indicate a possibility to assess human height on the basis of genetic markers.
