Jaws may help humans grow new teeth, shark study suggests
Geege Schuman stashed this in Genomics
Humans don't have natural ability to regenerate teeth, but sharks do.
Not sure why we don't have this ability naturally but sharks could help us develop the technology:
- Study identifies network of genes that help sharks grow new teeth throughout their lifetime
- Humans possess same cells but tooth regeneration ability is limited
- Research paves the way for development of therapies for human tooth loss
"Humans don't have natural ability to regenerate teeth..."
Ahem, I beg to differ.
How are you regenerating teeth?
