Revelan qué pudo convertir a los humanos en grandes corredores



Un nuevo estudio asegura que la perdida de la funcionalidad de un solo gen, hace millones de años, pudo haber ayudado a los ancestros del ser humano a pasar de vivir en los bosques a convertirse en cazadores y recolectores de las áridas savanas africanas, con suficiente resistencia y capacidad para evadir depredadores, recorrer largas distancias y conquistar nuevos territorios.

Investigadores de la Universidad de California (San Diego, EE.UU.) revelaron que una mutación relacionada con la ausencia del gen CMAH coincide con la aparición de varios cambios clave en los cuerpos de los primeros homínidos, como piernas largas y glúteos más potentes que ayudaron a aumentar la resistencia física de nuestra especie.

Para el estudio, publicado este 12 de septiembre en The Royal Society Publishing, fueron utilizados ratones corrientes y otros diseñados genéticamente para carecer del gen, los cuales fueron sometidos a correr en ruedas y cintas especialmente diseñadas.

“Evaluamos la capacidad de ejercicio [de los ratones que carecen del gen CMAH] y notamos un aumento en el rendimiento durante las pruebas en la cinta rodante y después de 15 días de ejercitación voluntaria en las ruedas”, señaló Jonathan Okerblom, coautor de la investigación.

Ventaja selectiva

Según el equipo, los ejemplares modificados mostraban una mayor resistencia a la fatiga, un aumento de las respiración mitocondrial y del tamaño de los músculos de las extremidades posteriores, lo que se traduce en una mayor cantidad de capilares que eleven el suministro de sangre y oxígeno.

El médico Ajit Varki, autor principal de la investigación, explica que esta característica contribuyó a mejorar la capacidad del músculo esquelético para la utilización de oxígeno: “Si los hallazgos se traducen en humanos, es posible que proporcionaran a los primeros homínidos una ventaja selectiva cuando bajaron de los árboles para convertirse en cazadores-recolectores permanentes en el campo abierto”.

“Una espada de doble filo”

Se cree que el CMAH mutó en el género ‘homo’ hace dos o tres millones de años, tal vez en respuesta a las presiones evolutivas causadas por un antiguo patógeno, y alteró la forma en que los homínidos posteriores y los humanos modernos usamos los ácidos siálicos, una familia de moléculas de azúcar que recubren las células animales.

Sin embargo, la pérdida del gen CMAH no fue del todo buena. Si bien puede haber convertido al hombre en mejor corredor y aumentar su inmunidad, se cree que está relacionado con mayor riesgo de ciertos tipos de cáncer y diabetes. “Son una espada de doble filo”, recalcó Varki.

    Yet another thing I would like to talk about is that instead of trying to accommodate all your online degree classes on days and nights that you finish work (since the majority of people are exhausted when they return home), try to get most of your classes on the weekends and only a couple courses in weekdays, even if it means a little time away from your saturday and sunday. This is beneficial because on the saturdays and sundays, you will be extra rested and also concentrated on school work. Thanks a lot for the different points I have discovered from your blog.

    Together with everything that appears to be building within this particular area, a significant percentage of opinions tend to be rather refreshing. On the other hand, I appologize, because I do not subscribe to your whole theory, all be it radical none the less. It appears to me that your commentary are generally not completely justified and in simple fact you are generally your self not even entirely confident of the argument. In any event I did enjoy looking at it.

    Thanks for your handy post. In recent times, I have come to understand that the particular symptoms of mesothelioma cancer are caused by a build up associated fluid involving the lining of your lung and the upper body cavity. The disease may start inside chest region and multiply to other body parts. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma cancer include losing weight, severe deep breathing trouble, nausea, difficulty ingesting, and swelling of the neck and face areas. It needs to be noted that some people living with the disease don’t experience any serious signs and symptoms at all.

One other point I would like to talk about is that there are plenty of games on the market designed in particular for preschool age young children.
