Human genes have the function of regeneration of limbs

Many animals can regenerate limbs, but not human. Researchers have discovered in the human genome a group of genes that we have inherited from our ancestors. According to scientists, these genes in the past was responsible for rebuilding parts of the body.

Talk about complete regeneration. The researchers expect that their work will help in understanding the mechanisms of recovery after injury.

Scholars tell how they came to his discovery. We investigated the activity of genes in fish. In the removal of a fin or injury of the heart muscle in animals activated gene leptin which accelerates the process of tissue regeneration.

The researchers themselves note that the collected material is only the beginning. Will take years to fully understand the mechanism of tissue regeneration.
