    Sean Myles
    Institute for Genomic Diversity, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA
    BMC Med Genet 12:10. 2011
    ..We suggested that the risk allele of the Gly482Ser variant in the PPARGC1A gene was driven to high frequency in Polynesians by positive selection and therefore possibly represented a thrifty allele in the Pacific...

    Transdisciplinary Research Organization for Subtropics and Island Studies, University of the Ryukyus, Okinawa, 903 0215, Japan
    Am J Hum Genet 85:528-35. 2009
    ..The 1540C allele also significantly affected PC1 (p = 4.9 x 10(-3)), which denotes overall tooth size, and PC2 (p = 2.6 x 10(-3)), which denotes the ratio of mesiodistal diameter to buccolingual diameter...

    Hum Mol Genet 24:2673-80. 2015
    ..Together with previous studies on hair morphology, this study demonstrated that common variations in WNT10A have pleiotropic effects on the morphology of ectodermal appendages. ..

    ..These findings suggest that the Pleistocene inhabitants, whose bones have been found on the southern Ryukyu Islands, did not make a major genetic contribution, if any, to the present-day inhabitants of the southern Ryukyu Islands. ..
