It says in the codex that the GK got their geneseed from the Emperor.

This is why I hate the new generation at GW *****ing with the Almighty Rick Priestley's beautifully created universe, ripping apart old,pure fluff and mashing it together with new shite.
Quote from yon original Holy Grail of 40k, Rogue Trader:
The Adeptus Custodes forms the Emperor's inner guard whose duties are to serve and protect the Master of Mankind. A continuous rota ensures that there are always several hundred of these select warriors action within the palace, as well as a small elite of guardians who never leave the Emperor's side. Their uniforms are traditional but effective, leather breeches and boots with a long black cloak over naked torso. Their helmets are ancient works of art; all-enclosing and tall they impart a threatening, impersonal appearance as well as providing a battery of protective equipment and communicators. The weapons carried by these guards look very much like spears or spear- guns, but are in fact lasers build to resemble the traditional and symbolic guardian-spear which has long association with the Adeptus Custodes and which appears on their banners, badges and other regalia. The guards themselves never leave Earth, and only rarely leave the imperial palace where their duties lie - their place is by the Emperor's side.
The Custodes were created by the Emperor before the Heresy as the ultimate warriors; but they took too long to train/mature/create, so opted for the quicker scheme of using the Primarch's DNA as a template for lesser but still superhuman warriors.
As such, they are the Ultimate,using the Emperors own DNA in their makeup and genetically programmed to be loyal only to Him.
