Shark DNA may act as a magical component for the people who are fighting from life threating disease- cancer.
Great White Sharks have miraculous self-curable DNA that helps them to fight against deadly diseases and protect their life. And scientists want to research upon it to cure sick people according to a new study.
In the first-ever mapping of the predators’ genes, researchers unveiled that superhuman “mutations” that has been changing from centuries at the top of the animals' kingdom, reported in the study that was published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
Human has unique unstable genes- which are more vulnerable to cancer and other age-related illnesses- the DNA makeup of great white sharks. White sharks’ DNA is much hard and not easy to destroy.
“Nature has developed clever strategies to maintain the stability of genomes in these large-bodied, long-lived sharks,” the study’s co-author Mahmood Shivji said in a press release.
But still, scientists are sinking into their teeth to know how people can get benefit by copycatting the massive man-eaters.
“There’s still tons to be learned from these evolutionary marvels, including information that will potentially be useful to fight cancer and age-related diseases, and improve wound-healing treatments in humans, as we uncover how these animals do it,” Shivji said.
As the experts are done the research on shark before that suggest that they have the ability to heal their wounds and blood clotting and recover quickly from serious injuries. This “Jaws”-dropping study based on these studies, as the scientists are curious to know if Sharks’ DNA is also curable for humans.
