Swiss scientists tested the gene that after administration of a fruit fly has extended the life of an insect and a half times.

Scientists have provided a fly tissues containing extra copies of a gene called ahuizotl. The introduction of this "elixir of youth" has led to the fact that the insect has intensified the destruction of the sick and injured cells, and insect life expectancy has increased by 50-60 percent.

"Preservation of healthy cells in specific tissues and destruction of patients, regardless of health status is a strategy that obviously works successfully in many cases, and there is also a mammal," - said Eduardo Moreno from the University of Berne, a specialist in cell biology and director of the experiment .



Humans also have a gene ahuizotl. If the findings of the gene by the action on the body of the human subject to fly, its introduction in the human organism may increase their average life expectancy of 120 years.

His name was in honor of the gene cynomolgus character Aztec myth. The creature lived in the water and protect the inhabitants of the lake from the people, taking the last deep into the pond.
