Sience magazine published the results of a joint research project of American and French scientists who discovered the protein that causes the asymmetry of the bodies of humans and animals. Issledovateli believe that the influence of this protein, called Myosin 1D, applies not only to physiology but also to psychology and behavior.
Protein Myosin 1D, causing bodily asymmetry in humans and animals, was the main object of observation of scientists, who experimented with fly-blown. These organisms respiratory trachea flies, is a symmetric body, however, under the influence of the protein Myosin 1D trachea flies began to curl, that is, lose their asymmetry.
Asymmetry is characteristic of most living beings on Earth. For example, the human body, the heart in it is on the left side in a single copy, that this is not an obvious asymmetry? Even the two halves of the human faces are asymmetrical with respect to each other.
The authors of the new study, said: “the Protein Myosin 1D exerts its action at different levels – contributes both to the asymmetry of the body’s cells and carries the effect on the behavior of the body.”
In particular, the Drosophila flies protein Myosin 1D contributed not only to the fact that their trachea began to twist, but also caused changes in their movements. Experts believe that the protein responsible for the asymmetry of the body, has a more significant effect on anatomy and psychology than it seems after the experiments with flies. Their research in this direction will continue.
