Rare Gene- ABCCll

Postby Raven » Sun May 24, 2020 11:44 pm

I received the Lake Baikal Gene and was wondering if it indicates the mutation on the ABCC11 Gene that’s responsible for no body odor and dry earwax? I consider myself predominantly European but I rarely sweat and noticed after stopping wearing deodorant due to an allergic reaction that I don’t actually need it as I don’t have an odor. Apparently the mutation is most common in East Asian populations and very rare in European or African populations. I also have extremely dry earwax.

If you have 23andme they show your result for earwax on their traits, though they say I should have wet with a CC on the gene... I think it has to be more than one gene or SNP in the gene? I don't really have the heavy wet earwax, was told I had the cleanest ears a doctor ever saw and asked if I was a swimmer. ...I do sweat except palms of my hands dry.

I don't have Lake Baikal Gene but I do have the AmerInd and Yellow Emperor Rare Genes.

I did hear about 23andme testing for that. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem as if they have sales anymore. I received the Amerind gene from my mother ( she took the Rare Genes test also) and the Lake Baikal gene is therefore coming from my father. I also have an Asian lll marker from my father, which seems to be from southeast Asia. What's interesting is I was also born with the Mongolian spot on my back but I know that other populations can have that as a well. I was shocked to find that I have the Lake Baikal gene and my number 2 match on my fingerprint test is Indo-Mongoloid Naga.
