Analysis of the iron studies done in these patients with genetic mutations on the HFE gene, correlate with previous studies in which a higher degree of iron overload (manifested by higher ferritin levels and higher transferrin saturation) is associated to the C282Y mutation, more so, when homozygotic.

These organisms are called homozygotic for that allele.
The hypothetical gene could induce left-handedness 25% of the time in heterozygotic persons, but all homozygotic recessives would be sinistrals and all homozygotic dominants would be dextrals.
This is because the most important effect of inbreeding is the high probability of producing homozygotic offspring (who have inherited the same allele for a given gene from both parents), because the offspring of related parents have a relatively higher chance of inheriting the same form of a gene from each parent.
