Scientists have learned how the most tenacious creatures on Earth survive “drying” MOSCOW, 16 Mar — RIA Novosti. The famous tardigrades, animals that can live in space and carry a huge dose of radiation, are able to come back to life after they have been fully “drying” due to the presence in their body special proteins that protect them from death in total absence of water, according to a paper published in the journal Molecular Cell. “The main conclusion of our study — the animals have unique genes that allow them to survive complete desiccation. These genes and their associated proteins can be used to protect other organisms and biomaterials, for example, bacteria, yeast, or certain drugs, death, or decay,” said Thomas Boothby (Thomas Boothby) from the University of North Carolina at chapel hill (USA). In 2007, scientists made a surprising discovery when analyzing data collected by the Russian spacecraft
Scientists have found the explanation of the vitality of animals Chemists and biologists from the US and Italy have discovered a protein that helps animals to survive during dehydration. About his discovery, they reported in the journal Molecular Cell. Previously, scientists thought that tardigrades can use trehalose is a disaccharide found in other organisms, successfully opposing dehydration. However, the content of this substance in very little animalcules, and in sequencing were not detected in the gene encoding the enzyme necessary for the production of this disaccharide. In the study, scientists have identified genes that aktiviziruyutsya dehydration. It turned out that different species of animals it is one and the same set of genes that encodes proteins, which biologists have called “characteristic of animalcules internally disordered proteins” (tardigrade-specific intrinsically disordered proteins — TDPs). Also, the study authors noted that those species in which these genes are constantly activated, faster return to
