Breaking News - Humans have TWICE as much Neanderthal DNA as first thought

Оценок: 99 | Просмотров: 14970
Some modern humans have more Neanderthal DNA in their genetic make-up than first thought, a new study has found.Research shows that between 1.8 and 2.6 per cent of the genomes of modern, non-African human populations is made up of Neanderthal DNA.This is far higher than previous estimates of 1.5 to 2.1 per cent.These genes play roles in our cholesterol levels, eating disorders, arthritis and other diseases today, the researchers claim.The study follows separate research, published yesterday, which found that Neanderthal DNA can drive our smoking habits, mood swings, and skin tone.Neanderthals are the closest extinct relatives of humans, migrating to Europe from Africa thousands of years before our Homo Sapien ancestors.Early humans migrating from Africa interbred with Neanderthals in Europe roughly 100,000 years ago, and this DNA mixing still contributes to several modern traits.Researchers believe the genes from our extinct cousins could have helped our ancestors to thrive as they adapted to the European continent.In the new study, experts from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, analysed billions of DNA fragments sampled from the remains of a female Neanderthal.It is only the second genome of the species to be fully sequenced with a high level of quality.The ancient female lived 52,000 years ago, and her remains were found in Vindija Cave, Croatia in the 1980s.Previous work has shown that Neanderthals lived in the cave until late in their history, with the species predicted to have gone extinct roughly 45,000 years ago.Compared to other sequenced remains, the researchers found their Croatian Neanderthal - dubbed Vindija 33.19 - was more closely related to the Neanderthals who interbred with the ancestors of modern humans living outside Africa.This closer relation meant the team identified 10 to 20 per cent more Neanderthal DNA in modern humans than previously thought.These newly discovered gene variants contribute to human blood vitamin D levels, LDL cholesterol counts,  as well as body fat levels.The DNA also plays a role in arthritis, schizophrenia and responses to antipsychotic drugs, the study found.'This adds to mounting evidence that Neanderthal ancestry influences disease risk in present-day humans, particularly with respect to neurological, psychiatric, immunological, and dermatological phenotypes,' the authors wrote in their paper.But not all of the Neanderthal DNA is negative, the researchers claims.'Variants from Neanderthals are not necessarily bad for your health,' said study lead author Dr Kay Prüfer told Live Science.'We find one variant that is associated with LDL cholesterol, and the variant we got from Neanderthals is associated with lower LDL cholesterol.'The team compared the genomes of the Vindija Neanderthal with that of a specimen found in Russia's Altai mountains.They found that the two were surprisingly similar, suggesting that the European population of Neanderthals around 52,000 years ago was very small.'The two Neanderthals were separated by thousands of kilometers and probably lived tens of thousands of years separated in time as well,' Dr Prüfer said.'That is why it is so surprising to find them to be so similar.'The new research follows a separate Neanderthal DNA study published yesterday, also from the Max Planck Institute.Scientists studying British DNA found our Neanderthal inheritance affects our skin tone, hair colour, height, sleep patterns, mood, and even a 1

Oh oh stop this shit we are pure humans while you just a mixture of albino africans and neanderthals therefore cave beasts . So call yourselves mutants or some else but not humans

haven't heard anyone say Neanderthals were in Africa. However, Homo Heidelbergensis migrated to Europe around 1.5~2 million years ago. The two very different environments caused Homo Heidelbergensis to adapt differently in each environment, eventually evolving into Homo Sapiens, possibly around 338.000 years ago, and Homo Neanderthalensis, possibly around 400.000 years ago, respectively. :)

Heavily biased. Europeans inherited many genetic positives from the Neander Valley. This video gives a negative impression. We gained a better immune system from them. And almost certainly a higher IQ. I think almost no "native populations" have any Neanderthal DNA and their IQ's are much lower than europeans.

Perhaps the larger skull gave more room for the modern homosapien brain to evolve/grow with time resulting in greater cognitive skill. All ethnicities contain some form of archaic DNA. Asians have Denisovans, Caucasians have Neanderthal, central Africans even have .5% Neanderthal DNA in their genome. Plus not to mention Africans contain some form of archaic DNA that we have had yet had the chance to map the genome of. Aborigines in Australia have a form of archaic DNA in their genome that no other ethniticity contains or shares in the world. All Humans have archaic DNA. No one "race" is superior to another, we're all the product of archaic orgies. I know that kills the supremacist out there... 😂 The whites supremacist should learn more about their African relatives that made their existence possible and the African supremacist should learn more about the Neanderthal and unknown archaic DNA in their genome that makes their existence possible. Silly ignorant people. I would assume if there were a suppior race it's in the ancient Summerian tablets. 🤣

J Yummy ok God 🤣 Every human being has a little bit Neanderthal. My maternal and paternal haplogroup originate from Africa. So my relatives we're rapped by my relatives 😂😂😂 I wouldn't exist without I guess... All surviving Neanderthal traits originate from a female, I doubt my female Neanderthal relative rapped a male...

Alex Xander any neanderthal DNA that an African desendant may have is due to RAPE.

Fallen angel aka Enlil raped the AA giving us 1-2%. Only AA has this gene. Africans n Australians don't have it, you fallen angel/Anunnaki. Queen stated she's not human she's either Caucasian or white. I think she converted to caucasian.

Why do they look anything like us?.. They probably looked more like less hairy gorillas then modern man..just sayin'..not like short stocky modern humans..they were primates sorta kinda..lol

So if Modern Humans have 99.7% same genes with Neanderthal is that 2% "Neanderthal genes share" actually incredible thing at all?
Bob Belson (10 месяцев назад)
And its male neandertal dna....this means they assaulted our women. Being that they were hardcore predators 99 percent meat eaters and that they were confirmed cannibals...you fill in the blanks. I say Good riddance .

If Europeans has ANY human genes it has to be less than 50%/--or 30% human /70% Neanderthal --she said; ''Africans left Africa and went to Europe to have Sex with a sub. Human monster.. That would suggest that Africans are having sex with animals in Africa... °• hospital does not give animal blood to human, but I believe Neanderthals were digging AFRICAN cemetery in the middle east looking for blood

Not retart just 97% neanderthal DNA descended from god not from the monkeys Do you come from the monkeys?

Holy shit! a certified mental retard right here on YouTube? who could have guessed.... cheers for your input, it really made me laugh. YouTube is not the best source of information, try taking some anthropology papers at your local University or college.

Could be a mix from all what is human, but I don't believe in primate stories. watch?v=_Ut7hIxMsF4 Mixing genes with other kind of animals that are not human is not that easy by natural selection. watch?v=WRKS7NvAD-4 Humans with humans make humans, monkeys with monkeys make monkeys, dogs with dogs make new dogs, fish with fish make new fish, bananas with babanas make babanas even a monkey knows that. When you count millions and millions and many millions more everything is possible as long as you count the millions and millons the fish came out of the water to populate the land and later they created wings to populate the sky and later they returned into the water to become a whale and after millions and millons you have the human. History of mankind is evil against good and the history of humanity is god. You know I believe making things complex is stupid and making things simple is smart

Crucem Sanctam Subiit Alleluia listen to me, this planet is round and singular, we have one sun, everything is obvious and right in your face if you care to see it. Human ancestory actually does happen to have very diverse origins, but as you look into the data, statitistics and scientific facts you will find that at some point in history there was a common species 'homo erectus' this species as far as we have learned originated in africa roughly 1900,000 years ago, 'homo heidleburgensis' was the descendant of erectus leaving africa around 700,000 years ago becoming eventually 'homo neanderthalensis' (neanderthal) also a species called denisovens and potentially others, but this is not the direct ancestor of modern humans, around 200,000 years ago an early 'homo sapien' (human) who were dwelling only in africa at the time, before the earth had seen any of the great civilisation since. When we left africa there was inevitably breeding going on between the homo sapiens, neanderthal and denosovins, since then the climate and landscape has isolated different large groups of modern humans where we have had different mating preferences bringing about the natural diversity of the different people around the world today.

There is no common ancestor that's a evolution lie.

There were a smattering of humans who mated with Neanderthals, but that does not mean that humans came from Neanderthals. This fact disproves the very idea of evolution, because mixing and creating a new race in that manner is far different from evolving from one species into another.
MadCity Jack (11 месяцев назад)
NO. This is MORE evidence of evolution, diversification within our own genus into 3 or more different species. There were no male offspring crosses who could mate successfully either because they were stillborn, sterile or male H.s.s. and female H. n. were not genetically compatible.

Neanderthals had been cut off from most of the world in tiny compartments of living areas. Sapiens had been around larger groups of peoples and had most all the diseases that the neighbors had. So when Sapiens moved into Neanderthal territories, they carried the diseases with them. Who knows, even venerial diseases. So with some diseases, Neanderthals might have been able to fight them off, but with other diseases like smallpox for instance, they were sitting ducks, very like the American Indians.

Schizophrenia is said by some to be a state of fear. So is paranoia. What are schizophrenics and paranoiacs afraid of? Perhaps its the psychopaths who rule this world! Psychopaths call those who sense them insane and they now have identified these peoples genes. They would probably like to eliminate them. Well the genes for psychopathy are also known and since they are the dangerous people, perhaps we should eliminate them! We might even find that the symptoms of schizophrenics and paranoiacs abate as their fears allay when the psychopaths have gone. It would be interesting actually to see if there is less evidence of schizophrenia and paranoia where there is less psychopathy. It might show a correlation between fear and threat psychoses.

As a psychologist I can tell you that probably you can have paranoiac thoughts about psychopaths. I recommend you to go to an psychologist just to ensure if you really have any abnormal behavior.

Discovered in genetic sequencing & studies Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, ADHD, Aspergers; & also disturbances in glucose metabolism, such as Diabetes. Also, most probably regressed or no language and speech skills; & described by some as probably a nocturnal predator due to the size of the occipital lobe.
