  • chimp
  • A recent high-profile article in the journal Nature released the results of a study with implications that shocked the scientific community because they contradict long-held claims of human-chimp DNA similarity. (icr.org)
  • Given the fact that the chimpanzee genome is at least 10 percent larger 5 overall than the human genome, this method of assembly was not only biased toward an evolutionary presupposition of human-chimp similarity, but was also inherently flawed. (icr.org)
  • Because of the recent outcome comparing the chimp and human Y chromosomes in a more objective assessment, it is possible that major discrepancies will be revealed among the other chromosomes that are claimed to be so similar. (icr.org)
  • From a large-scale perspective, the human and chimp Y chromosomes were constructed entirely differently. (icr.org)
  • Not only were the locations of DNA categories completely different between human and chimp, but so were their proportions. (icr.org)
  • Human-Chimp Genetic Similarity: Is the Evolutionary Dogma Valid? (icr.org)
  • To date, at least one major criticism still holds true, pending new research reports: The physical arrangement of chimp DNA sequence is largely based on the human genomic framework, except for a recent study on the Y chromosome, which was found to be remarkably different from human. (icr.org)
  • Despite the crude similarity of anatomical features between humans and chimps, there remain large behavioral and biological differences, as highlighted, for instance, by non-Christian author Jeremy Taylor in his recent book Not a Chimp . (icr.org)
  • Aren't human-chimp genetic comparisons simply a logical extension of a process everyone would accept as valid and factual? (icr.org)
  • Human-Chimp Similarities: Common Ancestry or Flawed Research? (icr.org)
  • Evolution Lesson: Comparison of Human and Chimp. (indiana.edu)
  • chimps and humans
  • 1 A previous Acts & Facts article showed that much of the research surrounding the often touted claims of 98 percent (or higher) DNA similarity between chimps and humans has been based on flawed and biased research. (icr.org)
  • occur
  • In chromosome fusion events that occur in nature in living mammals-a very rare event-the DNA signature always involves satDNA producing a DNA signature that occurs as either satDNA-satDNA or satDNA-teloDNA sequence. (icr.org)
  • When teloDNA-teloDNA fusions do occur in humans, they involve tissues and cell lines associated with cancerous tumors. (icr.org)
  • evolutionary
  • 1 A common manifestation of this evolutionary dogma is the claim that humans are 95 to 99 percent genetically identical to chimpanzees. (icr.org)
  • Possible evolutionary relationships are explored, as are the chromosomes and relationships of other apes. (indiana.edu)
  • 3. Predictions of similarities of chromosomes, based on the assumption of evolutionary relationships, can be tested. (indiana.edu)
  • 3. demonstrate their understanding that degrees of similarities in chromosomes correspond to degrees of evolutionary relationship. (indiana.edu)
  • 4. associate degrees of similarity with relative timing of evolutionary divergence. (indiana.edu)
  • The distinction between quadrupeds and tetrapods is important in evolutionary biology , particularly in the context of tetrapods whose limbs have adapted to other roles (e.g., hands in the case of humans, wings in the case of birds, and fins in the case of whales). (wikipedia.org)
  • Once again, the exquisite bioengineering in the genome as anticipated by the Biblical view of creation has prevailed over the evolutionary predictions of useless junk littering our chromosomes. (icr.org)
  • bile acid intermediates
  • The bile acid intermediates 7-alpha,12-alpha-dihydroxy-4-cholesten-3-one and 7-alpha-hydroxy-4-cholesten-3-one can also act as substrates. (hmdb.ca)
  • AKR1D1 is responsible for the catalysis of the 5-beta-reduction of bile acid intermediates and steroid hormones which carry a delta (4)-3-one structure. (creativebiomart.net)
  • comparisons
  • An evolutionist might respond to these rebuttals with a persuasive-sounding analogy: "We know how closely two humans are related because we can do DNA comparisons between them. (icr.org)
  • PowerPoint Presentation (Optional): This could make a useful introduction to this lesson, or serve as a quick overview of primate chromosome comparisons. (indiana.edu)
  • Optional) A 'Phylogeny' of hominids (formerly called hominoids), based on chromosome comparisons in Yunis' 1982 article. (indiana.edu)
  • inositol
  • The production of the second messenger molecules diacylglycerol (DAG) and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) is mediated by activated phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C enzymes. (uniprot.org)
  • The production of the second messenger molecules diacylglycerol (DAG) and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) is mediated by calcium-activated phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C enzymes. (hmdb.ca)
  • identical
  • If it is true that humans are 95 to 99 percent identical to chimps at the genetic level, the evolutionist has only 1 to 5 percent of a genomic difference to work with. (icr.org)
  • The familiar X shape actually refers to 2 identical chromosomes referred to as sister chromatids. (conservapedia.com)
  • evidence
  • In 1991, scientists reported finding alleged evidence of a telomere-telomere fusion event on human chromosome 2, but it was not quite what they were expecting. (icr.org)
  • Students compare banding patterns on hominid (human and ape) chromosomes, and see striking evidence of their common ancestry. (indiana.edu)
  • 1. Chromosome banding patterns provide independent confirmation of relationship in hominids, in addition to anatomical, physiological, genetic, and molecular evidence. (indiana.edu)
  • Tomkins
  • 10,11 This author has recently verified that an overall lack of synteny supporting fusion still holds true for over 2.7 million bases surrounding the fusion site based on the most recent version of the chimpanzee genome compared to human (Tomkins, unpublished data). (icr.org)
  • Results
  • And the results are not good news for the story of human evolution. (icr.org)
  • This review summarizes results obtained with the mouse, rat, human, and ovine promoters either by transient transfection assays or by means of transgenic mice. (frontiersin.org)
  • Unusual sex chromosome complements (XXY, XYY etc) results in gender anomalies which is a fascinating field in itself. (messybeast.com)
  • Cell division in the germ cells, eggs and sperm (meiosis), results in the creation of daughter cells with half the number of chromosomes as the original cell (haploid cells). (conservapedia.com)
  • large
  • A new research study has shown that large regions of the human genome, once thought to be useless junk, work to keep your heart functioning properly. (icr.org)
  • However, the specific relationship of lncRNAs to human heart failure has not been explored on a large scale. (icr.org)
