MOSCOW: The microscopic microbe that has been buried in the ice for thousands of years has not only resurfaced but is also beginning to reproduce. With this effort, we can understand a lot according to medicine and science.
As scientists isolated this multicellular but microscopic creature buried in permanent ice (permafrost) from ice, it came to life and began to reproduce. It allows us to find new ways to avoid cell destruction in ice, and it can benefit us, humans.
Scientists from Physiochemical and Biological Problems in Russia have presented this research. “Our research provides hard-to-find evidence of how multicellular organisms survive hundreds of thousands of years of sleep-like sleep in the ice, as well as their entire metabolism system,” said Stas Malvin, a biologist at the institute. Begins.
This creature is called ‘rotifier’ which is found in ponds and lakes all over the world. Although this trait was discovered, evidence of their survival for thousands of years has been found for the first time. The experiments were performed on living Arctic permafrost, where ancient microorganisms have already been found, including viruses, plants and apricots.
Radiocarbon dating at the site of the rotifer has revealed that the animal is at least 24,000 years old. After surviving, the animal also began to reproduce through asexual cloning, which is called ‘parthenogenesis
