The delta 32 gene is part of the genetic sequence making up the CCR5 receptor which is found on the surface of the CD4 cell. HIV uses this receptor to connect with and infect a CD4 cell.
We all have two genes for each characteristic (two sets of chromosomes), one from the mother and one from the father. Being negative for delta 32 on one of the set and having delta 32 positive on the other (called heterozygous) is related to a reduced risk from HIV compared to someone with two positive delta chromosomes. This type of heterozygous mutation occurs in about 20% of Caucasians but in about 1% of people from African origin.
If both genes are delta 32 negative this is called homozygous and occurs in only about 1% of Caucasians. This provides a much stronger protection against HIV.
Those who are likely to have one + and one - have O Rh negative blood type, and this is because they have some Neanderthal genes, a lot more so than others and there are plenty of other genetic differences too.
But only 1% of O Rh negatives are delta 32 negative on both chromosomes, and despite it being called a mutation or deletion, much like they try to tell us about Rhesus negative blood, it was actually always that way in Neanderthals.
You can thank the ancient Serpent Bloodline for your raised protection against HIV.
