Tibetans have a special gene inherited from a long-extinct human species

The whole world knows the unique ability of the Tibetans to live in high mountains at an altitude of over 4000 meters above sea level. As shown by recent studies by scientists at the University of California at Berkeley, the inhabitants of Tibet owe this to the gene that they inherited from the extinct humanoid creatures that lived in the neighborhood of their ancestors about 40-50 thousand years ago.

The case is truly unique, because before scientists have not recorded such facts, when the "inhuman" gene helped a person to adapt to extreme natural conditions. Apparently, the crossing took place on the territory of the high-mountain plateau in Tibet, where the ancient people came after the exodus from Africa.

Representatives of a parallel civilization are Denisovans or Denisovans. According to biology professor Rasmus Nielsen, only they possessed the EPAS 1 gene, part of which is still preserved in modern Tibetans. Thanks to this unique gene, their body can regulate the formation of red blood cells in conditions of oxygen deficiency, as well as perform important functions during the development of the heart of the embryo.
