Tissue Regeneration Function is Found in Human Genes
Many animals can regenerate limbs, but not a human. US researchers have discovered a gene in the human genome group left from our ancestors. According to scientists, these genes were responsible in the past for the restoration of parts of the body.
They don't say about complete regeneration but hope that their work will help in understanding the mechanisms of the human body recover from injury.Scientists told how they came to this discovery. They investigated the activity of genes in fish. When the fin isolation or injury of the heart muscle in animals happen, the leptin gene was activated, that accelerates tissue regeneration. Researchers note that the collected material - only the beginning of work. It will take several years to fully reveal the mechanism of tissue regeneration.
