It revealed the secret of the survival of the oldest creatures on the planet

Раскрыт секрет выживания древнейших существ на планетеFound them even on the outside of the ISS

They can be boiled at temperatures up to 150 degrees Celsius or freeze to almost absolute zero: small, very similar to pupae tardigrades, also known as water bears will still be unkillable.

Found them even on the outside of the ISS, where the lack of pressure can kill a person in just a few minutes.

There the place of tardigrades found so pleasant that we decided to engage in procreation. Recently, scientists have discovered how the animals managed to survive in various environmental conditions. - услуги фрилансеров от 500 руб.

Dr. Thomas Boothby University of North Carolina, who led the research, said: ”the Big breakthrough of our study is that we found the animalcules unique genes that enable them to survive drying up”. “In addition, the proteins that encode these genes can be used for protection of other biological materials such as bacteria, yeast and certain enzymes against drying”, – he added.

These proteins received the name of TDP, or “protein for animals” in honor of the unique creatures with a length of only 1 mm. Previously it was thought that the secret of the ability of tardigrades to come to life after a stay in the dried state of about 10 years lies in the Sahara type trehalase, which is contained in other organisms, including shrimp.

To find these proteins, the scientists placed them in yeast and bacteria, which then acquired the same properties as tardigrades. According to Dr. Boothby, proteins TDP can be used to protect agricultural crops from drought and storage of drugs without the use of a refrigerator.
