Higher offspring survival among Tibetan women with high oxygen saturation genotypes residing at 4,000 m.

Abstract

Here we test the hypothesis that high-altitude native resident Tibetan women with genotypes for high oxygen saturation of hemoglobin, and thus less physiological hypoxic stress, have higher Darwinian fitness than women with low oxygen saturation genotypes. Oxygen saturation and genealogical data were collected from residents of 905 households in 14 villages… (More)
