Genes from one horse breed are found in humans, a study shows.
The finding could have implications for how to control diseases in humans.
It also raises the prospect of ways to treat people with genetic disorders.
The study, published online on April 26 in the journal Nature, looked at DNA from the genomes of a single breed of horse, the Golden, a long-lived breed of equine that has been around for about 10,000 years.
The researchers compared the DNA of the genetic material from the Golden with the genomes from horses from other breeds, as well as those of other animals, such as pigs, dogs and birds.
The Golden and other breeds have been used to identify disease-causing variants in humans for a long time.
The genetic material found in the Golden is also a key component in the genomes that have been found in other human species, including chimps and people with Down syndrome.
The DNA from a Golden was also found in pigs, the researchers said.
Genes found in horses have been associated with several human diseases, including Huntington’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
The gene found in human cells also contributes to the formation of amyloid plaques, which are a form of plaque found in brain and other areas of the brain that can lead to memory loss.
In the study, the team found a gene called Nde3.
This gene, found only in humans and horses, was also present in the horse.
It is not known whether Nde2 is found in any other animals or how it interacts with other genes.
The Nde genes have been linked to Alzheimer’s and other brain disorders.
“The horse is a perfect model for studying how to use this information to treat disease in humans,” study co-author and geneticist David Bialystock, of Harvard Medical School, told Reuters Health by email.
Biales study is the first to examine Nde genetic variation in humans in a large animal, and he said that finding the genetic variation of a long life breed will have important implications for understanding the relationship between the two types of genes. “
This is a very exciting project, one that is important to understand the role that human genes play in disease,” Bialys said.

“We’re now starting to understand how the different kinds of genetic variation affect the disease, and we’re beginning to understand what the role of the human genes is in the disease,” he said.
“I’m optimistic that this study will lead to a more accurate understanding of the relationship among these two genetic systems, as we learn more about what these two systems do together.”
