A group of scientists have created a genetically modified unique view of pigs
As the media says, experts got 12 healthy piglets. Each of them had almost 1/4 less subcutaneous fat compared to the usual pig.
In the modification of animals was used the unique technology of genetic CRISPR / Cas9. Thanks to this technology, in piglets was shown that gene as UPC1 responsible for the effect of thermoregulation on the body. This unit of heredity plays a special role in most mammals. But in pigs it is practically not. As a result, the fat it is vital.
After reaching 6 months of age of genetically modified pigs killed for analysis of their condition. While scientists have found that they are completely healthy.
