Why Elephants Rarely Get Cancer, and the Potential Mechanism that May be Key to Cancer Resistance 🧬🧪🦠
A new study from the University at Buffalo and University of California, Berkeley shows that elephants possess extra copies of a wide variety of genes associated with tumor suppression. Elephants have lots and lots of extra copies of tumor suppressor genes, and they all might contribute to cancer resistance. Though many elephant relatives also harbor extra copies of tumor suppressor genes, the scientists found that elephant genomes possess some unique duplications that may contribute to tumor suppression through genes involved in DNA repair; resistance to oxidative stress; cellular growth, aging and death.
