Found the gene responsible for touch sensitivity

The research team from Tati University basic research conducted an experiment that allowed us to identify the gene responsible for sensory perception. This gene allows a person to see, distinguish colors and shades. The gene was named Lhx2, writes The Telegraph India. A study conducted on laboratory mice showed that animals feel the smell and distinguish items by means of this gene.

Data were obtained after removal of the gene from the mouse genome. When this was breaking the chain of perception, which was responsible for the vision and sense of position space. Mouse determine its location with the mustache. No genes were not allowed to retain this function, scientists have reported. However, the basic units remained operational. Perhaps Lhx2 is exclusively responsible for the subtle sensations, and more global feelings are encoded by the other gene structures.
