Taxon:

Human

Gene:

HLA-odour preference

Chromosome:

06

Location:

6p21.3

Description:

Paternally inherited HLA alleles (A, B, C, DR and DQB1) influenced women's odour preference. Since the non-inherited paternal alleles and the maternal alleles did not influence odour choice, the preference was thought to be based on inheritance and not simply on postnatal exposure to HLA-associated odours (Jacob S et al, 2002).
