Growth and maturity


Description:Analyses performed within race showed that several variables including beta-lipoprotein cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, and the ponderal index were sufficient to discriminate between individuals possessing the B antigen (B and AB) and those not possessing the B antigen (A and O) in the White subsample. However, height in itself can account for the detected difference, B individuals being taller than non-B individuals by a mean value of 2.4 cm. A concordant, but not significant effect was found in the Black subsample. Further tests support the conclusion that the strongest association is between ABO blood type and height.

The age at menarche in relation to ABO blood group phenotypes and haemoglobin-E genotypes has been studied among 290 girls belonging to Mongoloid ethnic stock in the North Eastern region of India. The study shows that the age at menarche is influenced by the abnormal haemoglobin E genotype as well as ABO blood group phenotype. Thus, the genetic markers play a pivotal role in the growth and development of an individual.
