One of the genes they identified was ADAM-17, involved in regulating response to low oxygen levels. In studies of humans, Tibetans have also been found to have different variants of the ADAM-17 gene than lowlanders.

BTW, I was wondering if people in high altitudes who go to the Olympics would fair better a bit better.

i wonder when they will find the ADAM-12 gene, which often leads to a person becoming involved with law enforcement.

What is wrong with the animal called a "***" instead of "***" ? And why is my link not working?

A small advantage as their blood can carry more oxygen.
