It’s hard to believe but it’s true. Maybe soon there will be no need for artificial prostheses and scientists will learn to grow human limbs. And it’s not fiction. Experts from the Biological laboratory of the island of mount desert has discovered a gene regeneration, thereby giving the lizard grows a tail and other animals “they are patching” the wounds. This is better than just tissue healing – scientists say that thus it will be possible to create new limbs.
Sequencing technology has enabled researchers to closely study the genome of organisms that can regenerate. As a result, all kinds of experimental creatures were found common genetic mechanisms.
Proceeding from the fact that over 430 million years ago for all living things had common ancestor, the scientists made a loud statement: to find and awaken the “gene of regeneration” can be in person. Now scientists have how to activate dormant properties in the human body.
The study showed the sites of this DNA play an important role in the formation of the blastema, which represents a population of cells accumulating in the wound after the amputation. As a result, it promotes the restoration of lost limbs in some animals.
Experts suggest that these processes also has a great influence the network of regular molecules of RNA. They are probably the reason that tissue regeneration in humans is not so active. However, the impact on them can help to save people’s limbs.
Recall “Znayu” earlier wrote about a boy who managed to fulfill the dream of the other with plastic caps. This story moved to tears of the whole Ukraine.
A real hero became a Ukrainian student Vlad Korkh from the village Koryukovka in Chernihiv region. The boy promised a year to collect 15 tons of plastic caps. This is the number needed to produce a prosthesis for a guy who lost his leg later of cancer. His touching story learned through the project about motivation and willpower, “for this reason mit year because” on the STB. The boy became a hero of the 13th edition of the project.
We also wrote about how dangerous breast implants. It turned out that being implanted in the body, they can trigger a rare disease.
A major study of the Cancer center. M. D. Anderson revealed multiple side effects from plastic surgery on her Breasts.
