In the Siberian permafrost bacterium found immortality


In Yakutia, the scientists found a bacterium which was given the name "bacillus of immortality." The fact that a gram-positive bacterium is Bacillius F type tablet on its age. Scientists from the Siberian Academy of Sciences conducted a series of studies in mice, the results of which showed that animals vaccinated bacillus live better, and life expectancy is higher than that of their counterparts who were not vaccinated, by introducing new bacteria into the body.

"Bacillus, which prolongs life," which was discovered by researchers in the Siberian permafrost, deep in the bowels of Mammoth Mountain in Yakutia has a special mechanism to maintain its viability, which gave her the opportunity to survive in the thickness of the dead icy rocks. According to the researchers, the bacteria Bacillius F ability to activate and share in the conditions of a temperature of 5 degrees Celsius. "Among other things, their distinctive type of bacterial cell wall and proteins capable of eliciting a more powerful or more specific immune response when injected directly into the mouse" - noted in his report Nadezhda Mironova, senior researcher at the Department of Chemical Biology at the Russian Academy of Sciences.

So, now the researchers conducted a series of activities in order to accurately determine and compare the genome Bacillius F, as reported by Interfax news agency. However, according to preliminary data it was learned that the characterization of proteins and other factors indicate that the bacilli "lagging behind" the bacteria that exist today, 3 million years. "Already confirmed the fact that the injection of Bacillius F had a favorable impact on certain vital signs in aging animals. Specifically, we are talking about immunity and speed the process of activating it," as noted in the report submitted by the Public Relations Center of the Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences .

As the results of the first study, mice that received "grafting of old age", proved to be in all respects satisfactory and lived much longer than their counterparts in the control group. Earlier, a group of scientists from Boston University had already discovered the so-called longevity genes that are highly likely to allow its owner to live to 100 years old, regardless of lifestyle. A study by researchers from the universities of the United States, conducted in collaboration with scientists from the European Union allowed to make a list of certain foods, the constant use of which leads to rejuvenation of the body and increase life expectancy.
