Neanderthal genes

 

BY KASHISH SETIA


 

Neanderthals might have been extinct for 30,000 years but their genomes live on in modern humans. It is though that ancient gene might have helped Europeans adapt better to colder climates, giving them an evolutionary advantage. Neanderthals and Denisovans may possibly be long gone, but their viruses(the infections driven through the ages in their DNA) continue to live on inside our bodies. The geneticists who discovered these ancient viruses aren't sure if they're bad for us, but they surely could make us more susceptible to certain cancer, diabetes, and  cellulite


 

In the new study, geneticists from Plymouth University and Oxford University found several ERVs (Expiratory Reserve Volume)after comparing genetic data from the fossils of Neanderthals and Denisovans (an ancient group of hominids who share a common origin with Neanderthals) with genomic data from modern-day cancer patients. After looking at the data from the cancer patients, researchers Robert Belshaw and Gkikas Magiorkinis found they contained seven of the viral sequences found in Neanderthals and Denisovans. To deduce, Neanderthal genes where do as may make us more prone to cancer.


 

Diabetes is a worldwide disease which is on the increase daily.there seem to be infinite possibilities responsible for making human pancreas ineffective or not producing sufficient quantity of insulin. One of the major reason being neanderthal genes. Though it is just a theory currently, experiments, researchers have been going on for the past few years, proving there is a connection between us and neanderthals. To infer

 

They discovered that DNA sequences shared between modern humans and Neanderthals are specifically enriched in genes involved in the metabolic breakdown of lipids.the Neanderthal genes affect the composition of fat throughout the body. Dr. Khaitovich said: ‘We don’t know what these lipids' concentration changes do to the brain, but the fact that Neanderthal variants might have changed our brain composition has interesting implications.’ To infer Neanderthal genes whereas do make us more prone to cellulite keeping it in mind that this is not the only reason for the Europeans to have excessive cellulite quantities but in one of the main ones.


 

Now that we can estimate the probability that a particular genetic variant arose from Neanderthals, we can begin to understand how that inherited DNA affects us,” said David Reich, professor of genetics at HMS and senior author of the paper. Their downfall was insufficient abstract thinking Which placed them at a disadvantage to more invective newcomers to the Eurasian landmass  Neanderthal sequences cluster around genes that affect the skin, hair, fat metabolism, and the risk of type 2 diabetes, cirrhosis, Crohn’s disease, and—bizarrely—smoking addiction.
