Sensitivity of transmission probabilities to paternity exclusion in segregation analysis


Bonaïti-Pellié, C; Poisson, N; Bechtel, Y; Bechtel, P (1992). Sensitivity of transmission probabilities to paternity exclusion in segregation analysis. Genetic Epidemiology, 9(1):67-71.

Abstract

Paternity exclusions are known to be common in Western countries and are yet neglected in segregation analysis because it is almost impossible to check it systematically on a large family sample. We had the opportunity of observing the sensitivity of segregation analysis parameters to a paternity exclusion in analyzing 34 families for a simple Mendelian trait, the acetylator phenotype. We found that only one family, with proven paternity exclusion, was responsible for a strong rejection of Mendelian transmission probabilities (P much much less than 0.001).
