Neanderthal and Heteroplasmy

    You have 282 Neanderthal variants.

    Could having a high number of neanderthal DNA variants result in a higher level of heteroplasmy?

    I had a grandfather from Germany which is probably where I got my Neanderthal genes from.

    an interesting question - according to 23andme - i have a % rating - not sure how many genes that is - 2.7% - of course, which ones? :)

    actually i just now looked: 284 neanderthal gene variants

    i can only hope for myself that if genes have anything to do with heteroplasmy that it be in the good direction -

    definitely more reading on my part

    Curious if any of you have found an answer to the Neanderthal connection. I'm dealing with chronic mitochondrial issues and looking at all the possibilities to optimize- especially interested in best climate/place to heal in for those of us with higher neanderthal variants.

    I am not so sure that some mixed Neanderthals didn't survive the supposed 'die-off' about 40,000 years ago. I see a few occasionally in public now and again.

    All joking aside, they were not crude cavemen but fairly advanced homo sapiens with a larger brain than us (admittedly their big brains did not save them).
