Humans can produce venom just like snakes, research says
According to the study, conducted at the Okinawa Institute of Sciences and Technology in Japan, this cluster of elastic genes in humans is typically associated with the salivary glands.
Co-author of the study, Agnieszka Broa, says that oral venom is very common in animals, but that the current animal is Raisa (one of the highest-ranking mammals, including humans, monkeys, langurs, all). Only spiders, snakes and larvae (Asia and Africa mammals that nest in trees and go out at night) are considered poisonous.
Alexander Mike Hugh, a well-known biologist involved in the study, said: “Biologists are well aware that salivary glands in the mouth are in fact modified glands of poison, but new research suggests that the molecular mechanisms behind this change Has lifted the veil.
According to Alexander, in this study we focused on organized ‘housekeeping’ genes and these genes are related to poison but they are not responsible for producing poison on their own.
