[ScienceDaily] Naked mole-rats 'turn into plants' when oxygen is low

Understanding how the animals do this could lead to treatments for patients suffering crises of oxygen deprivation, as in heart attacks and strokes.

The scientists think that the naked mole-rats' unusual metabolism is an adaptation for living in their oxygen-poor burrows. Unlike other subterranean mammals, naked mole-rats live in hyper-crowded conditions, packed in with hundreds of colony mates. With so many animals living together in unventilated tunnels, oxygen supplies are quickly depleted.

I had to post this video. Something I've seen awhile ago and had to share. Reading the article now.

Edit:

"In the new study, the researchers exposed naked mole-rats to low oxygen conditions in the laboratory and found that they released large amounts of fructose into the bloodstream. The fructose, the scientists found, was transported into brain cells by molecular fructose pumps that in all other mammals are found only on cells of the intestine." https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/04/170420141844.htm

These fructose pumps in naked mole rats were found in their brain cells and heart cells. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=6DHErT2--E4

I also found this. Humans apperantly don't have these fructose pumps to actually feed our brains cells, but fructose can be produced in the human brain.

"“In this study, we show for the first time that fructose can be produced in the human brain,” said first author Dr. Janice Hwang, assistant professor of medicine.

While the production of fructose in the brain had been seen in animals, it had not been demonstrated in humans, Hwang noted." http://news.yale.edu/2017/02/23/fructose-generated-human-brain

"The current data demonstrating that fructose is produced in the human brain in response to hyperglycemia via the polyol pathway activity as well as evidence for the presence of aldose reductase, the rate-limiting enzyme in the polyol pathway, throughout the human brain, particularly in the cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, and hippocampus (11), may have particular implications for disordered eating behavior and disordered cognition in patients with diabetes." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5313070/#!po=30.9524

Yeah no kidding.

I read the thread title and the first thing my brain came up with is a hairless rat that somehow morphs into a house plant... blinksmiley.gif

That video is too funny.

Talk about click-bait!

Using metabolic pathways associated with plants does not make one a plant...
