Fly helped scientists to predict the death.
To find molecular markers that predict death, succeeded in fruit flies Drosophila.
Scientists from the University of Auckland studied the daily rhythms of life flies and found molecular markers that can predict the death of Drosophila. Data were published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Changes in biological processes in the body depending on the change of day and night called circadian rhythms. They depend on the correct operation of genes and their synchronization with the hypothalamus.
The researchers studied the genes of midges in the brain and peripheral tissues, providing circadian rhythms. They found that if the activity of both genes was increased and lost their usual rhythm, the flies died after four days. Regardless of the age.
In the experiment using flies 10-, 30 – and 50-day age.
