the APOBEC3G protein frequently swaps out the third C for a different base All together the researchers found about 37000 mutations occurring in 10000 clusters in the chimp and human genomes that they think were caused by these proteins they report today in Genome Research These mutations were Cs in the orangutan macaque and mouse but a different base in each of the other four species Many of the clusters were located in key places in the genome such as regions important for regulating gene activity or protein-coding parts of genes For example more than 33% of the base changes they found in coding regions also alter its protein product Many other changes likely happened in the germlines during the evolution of these species detrimental ones likely disappeared whereas those that provided some survival benefit persisted “It shows that this primate-specific antiviral mechanism also led to the shaping of our and our relatives’ genomes” Keinan says “It’s surprising to see this impact on all these primate genomes” says Jeffrey Kidd a geneticist at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor who was not involved with the work “It makes us realize that nothing comes for free” and the trade-off of having a mechanism to thwart viral DNA is disruptions in our own DNA he says “It raises the question of how that balance is worked out” There are related proteins that may likewise cause mutations; “this might just be the tip of the iceberg” Keinan says He and his colleagues are now calculating what percentage of the genetic changes that made us human were caused by APOBEC proteins Typically a newborn is expected to have 70 new mutations in its genome but just one of these proteins “can introduce potentially thousands [of them]” in close proximity and in one generation Keinan says And that’s a lot of new material for evolution to work onBy: AP | New York | Updated: October 11 2017 7:00 pm ‘Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian’ will come out Nov 28 (Source: File Photo) Related News Once again E L James is letting Christian Grey speak for himself Vintage Books announced on Tuesday that the next Fifty Shadesnovel Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christianwill come out Nov 28 Grey published in 2015 also was told from Christian’s point of view James said in a statement that the new book would give readers a “darker and more haunted” take on Christian James’ original Fifty Shadestrilogy the sexually graphic saga of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele has sold millions of copies “The inside of Christian Grey’s head is a fascinating place to be In Grey we got the first glimpse of what makes Christian tick but in Darker we go deeper into his most painful memories and the encounters that made him the damaged demanding man Ana falls in love with Writing this novel has been a journey of discovery and I hope readers will find what I’ve learned as compelling as I did Finally it’s always a joy to work with the great team at Vintage” James said in a statement as reported by EWcom The Fifty Shadestrilogy — whose first novel Fifty Shades of Greywas published in 2011 — has sold more than 150 million copies and has two film adaptations with a third one due for release next year?
