A rare type of salamander, who eats his own brothers and sisters, this may be the key to unlocking the regeneration of limbs in humans.

Well-known as a defect, this is a unique amphibian that has been described as “smiley-faced” and “the feathery-gilled,” to live in Mexico, and has been known to eat members of his / her brothers and sisters had food to eat. It is an action which is at the Northeastern University associate professor of biology, and James Monaghan is going to be able to help you with the ability to grow back human limbs, which is related to the Marvel super hero Deadpool.

“It’s pretty gruesome, but cannibalism is a possible reason as to why they grow their arms back,” Monaghan said in a statement.

Within a few months, the whole of the limb will be regenerated the researchers noted, including the skin, bones, and muscles, which may be associated with a molecule called neuregulin-1, which is used for the regeneration of the limbs, the lungs and eventually the heart.

“If we are removed, the regeneration is stopped. And then we added it back in, it caused the forms to answer,” Monaghan added. “I’m not saying it’s a golden bullet for inducing regeneration in humans, but it can be a piece of the puzzle.”

In contrast, the defect is in the man’s “very bad at regenerating,” Monaghan added, noting that more research is needed in order to see whether or not the defect’s ability to use the “back” of the genes that are responsible for the regeneration of the application is to be human.

“There is only one associated with neoteny, and the ability to regenerate. However, it is not the most important factor,” he said.

“[Y]ou already have an arm, once,” Monaghan continued. “If we can just learn how to get back at those programs, and our bodies are able to do for the rest of the work.”
