Regeneration Miracle Axolotl

Foot from – for the Axolotl is not a Problem. Because in the Lurch limbs and organs grow back. Now, researchers have discovered the trigger molecule for the rapid Regeneration. This could also help people.

  • Rare Mini-Water Monster

    Small, beady eyes, thin legs, a wide mouth, Although the little Figure is so cute, therefore, called the Aztecs water monster. In the case of the indigenous people in and around the capital of Mexico, he was once considered sacred, and sometimes considered a delicacy. Even then it was extremely rare.

  • Last Refuge Of The Aquarium

    Because in nature it is found only in two lakes in and around Mexico city. Because the city continues to grow, the threat to wild Axolotl from extinction. Most of the life in the Aquarium. They are nocturnal and like to swim in cool water at the bottom.

  • Forever young

    Axolotl will never grow up properly – you will stay a life long in the larval stage. This is due to a congenital thyroid defect. Prevents the secretion of the important hormones for metamorphosis. However, Axolotls can be up to 16 years old, and a size of 30 centimeters. They come in different colors.

  • Regeneration miracle

    For researchers particularly interesting is that the whole body can regenerate parts of the animal. Is is bit the Axolotl, a leg, grows it. This also works with institutions. Scientists want to investigate the processes behind it exactly, and maybe sometime for the people to use.

You will never grow properly and your body parts and organs make to yourself again, without the scars. From a human point of view, Axolotl are admirable animals. The Aztecs, who discovered it in Mexico today. For the animal was sacred and at the same time a delicacy. Its Name comes from the language spoken by the inhabitants in and around Mexico City in the late middle ages. Translated Axolotl water monster means.

Miraculous Healing

The Axolotl is a small Amphibian that can be up to 16 years old, and a size of up to 30 centimeters achieved. A thyroid defect is the small water animals never really grow up. The Defect prevents namely, that the animals develop through the larval stage. Nevertheless, they reach maturity, the gender, and can reproduce.

The Axolotl is on the list of endangered species in the UN

The cock lurch with the wide mouth features still more superhuman characteristics. So he can form limbs and organs after injury, complete and without scars. The key to a rapid multiplication of their own cells. For a Long time scientists study the healing process.

Now it is a Team of the DFG research center for Regenerative therapies in Dresden (CRTD), were able to identify the corresponding Protein, the healing process is triggered. “We have discovered the Protein, brings the cells to divide,” says developmental biologist Elly Tanaka, Director of the Dresden Axolotl research group.

Super Protein is also for the people?

Two Axolotl types studied, the researchers, and in the case of both the above-mentioned Protein. This molecule with the name MARCKS-like (MLP) have also people. Here, the Protein not only has influence on the shape of cells, the cell growth is initiated. “Now we want to find out how the cells receive the Signal and how you implement it,” says Elly Tanaka.

A clear knowledge about the signal chain of the Protein could also help the people. The science understands the entire process, researchers may, with the MARCKS-like Protein, also stimulate the cell division in humans.

The Axolotl, researchers in Dresden now want to investigate whether the Protein also plays a role in the Regeneration of heart cells of the small Lurchs a role. Here, too, the connection to the people is not far off.

Thanks to the massive interest of the research, the Axolotl has a secure future – but only in the aquariums of this world. Because the animal is on the Red list of threatened species of the United Nations. Estimates from the year 2009, only 700 up to a maximum of 1200 animals live in the wild.
