Humans can produce venom just like snakes

When asked about a poisonous creation, you could call a rat, a scorpion, or some other poisonous species, but a recent study has shown that people are now provided with a 'toolkit' for poison production.

This elastic gene cluster is related to, in particular, the salivary glands according to the research carried out at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Japan.

Agnieszka Broa, the co-author of the report, says oral venom is popular in primates, but Raisa is the current animal (one of the highest-ranking mammals, including humans, monkeys, langurs, all). Spiders, snacks, and larvae are considered toxic (Asia and Africa rodents breeding in the forest and going out in the night).

The renowned biologist who participated in the research, Alexander Mike Hugh, says "Has raised the curtain."

In this research, we based, according to Alexander, on coordinated 'housekeeping' genes and these genes are related to poison, but not alone to poison.

Researchers started this study with the Taiwanese habu snake, a viper species. The team of Alexander identified a cluster of genes common to all animal tissues of vertebrate habu venom. Many of these genes are associated with protein layering, while venomous species contain vast quantities of protein-based venom.

In human salivary glands, which generate large quantities of kallikrein, an essential protein found in the salivary gland, and the same protein is found in many toxins, similar ordered housekeeping genes are also found abundantly.
