Naked Mole Rat
Naked mole rats are very interesting indeed. They are a result of living underground for long periods of time and they don’t really show the aging process like most other mammals. The live-span of a naked mole rat is crazy long to other mammals up to 30 years . Naked mole rats have a unique way that makes it impossible for cancer to be present in their bodies. The naked mole rat has extremely high super sugar called high-molecular-mass Hyaluronan and mutations in the gene that comes up with it. I chose the naked mole rat because I want the cure to cancer to be found soon. I watched my grandpa suffer from cancer ...view middle of the document...
Which they do not see most of the time. Most of the time the naked mole rats close their eyes when they travel through to tunnels.  Which the tunnels can be up to six football fields. The naked mole rat has to guard against foreign mole rats and snakes the scientists are trying to find out what genes and the proteins that cause this healthy long levity life. Once found this will be a hall mark in the aging process and help humans live longer lives. The scientists have found 13 proteins that are possible candidates for the wellness of the animal.  New possible aspects of the aging process keep getting found out because of the naked mole rat. The proteins are key to finding out the secrets of the aging process to resist against aging.
The naked mole rats anti-aging. The health span in the naked mole rat is crazy compared to other mammals. The molecular attributes that are associated with the naked mole rate are still trying to be studied today. They are being studied so that humans can learn from the aging process of the naked mole rat, to live heathier longer live spans without aging as bad. The scientists found nine proteins that were much altered levels of phosphorylation that are present in the ageing process.  These altered proteins are involved in the very slow aging process in the naked mole rat. The high levels of autophagy that was found to be produced the whole lives of...
