Biological context of Dermatoglyphics


Associations of Dermatoglyphics with chemical compounds

  • As the epidermal surface of the volar pad of the rat is flat, dermatoglyphic characteristics were observed on the dermal surface following staining with toluidine blue [16].
  • The use of penrose's C2H for an intra- and inter-population analysis of quantitative dermatoglyphic traits [17].
  • Dermatoglyphic findings were compared in 42 patients (32 females, 10 males) with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) and 110 normal controls (70 females, 40 males) [18].
  • Six Muslim groups from various parts of Assam (Goalpara, Kamrup, Darrang, Nowgong, Sibsagar and Dibrugarh) have been analysed for the distribution of anthropometric and dermatoglyphic traits as well as for that of AB0 blood groups and PTC taste sensitivity [19].
  • Dermatoglyphics in discoid lupus erythematosus [20].

Gene context of Dermatoglyphics

  • The purpose of the present work was to determine the effects of the hereditary malformation of Hammertoe mutant mice (gene symbol Hm) on the surrounding morphological structures and, specifically, on the volar pads, i.e., the sites of the epidermal ridge patterns (dermatoglyphics) [21].
  • The dermatoglyphic parameters were: the digital delta index, TFRC, a-b ridge count, the ATD angle and the A line obliquity [22].
  • Dermatoglyphics show low TRC, distal or absent axial triradius, absent triradius C, and radial loop on digit 4 [23].
  • Dermatoglyphic (fingerprint) patterns in celiac disease [24].
  • The need for further delineation of PHP dermatoglyphics and comparison of findings with data from Turner syndrome and normals is stressed [3].
