Who doesn’t think a glow in the dark cat isn’t cute, and these cats could have the cure to HIV. Now this experiment is not very in depth yet, but this could turn into something big. Cats right now in the Mayo Clinics lab are being given proteins that are said to be able to fight of Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.
Scientists have come up with glow in the dark felines. Like humans cats have diseases, one of which is Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) similar to HIV in humans. This is not the cure to HIV but as this goes on, scientists are gaining intelligence on this disease. They have put rhesus macaque genes and jelly fish genes on cat eggs. Mayo researcher Dr. Eric Poeschla told LiveScience, “We want to see if we can protect the domestic cat against its AIDS virus, if we can protect any species, eventually including ours, against its own AIDS virus.”
Do you think this could be the cure?
Why do you think the protein makes them glow?
What are your thoughts on the outcome of this experiment?
