This post will discuss a very important discovery made by a group of researchers from Tel Aviv University in Israel. They have revealed that oxygen need for animals cannot be considered as scientific fact anymore. In the past, it was believed that oxygen is a fundamental requirement for living. As a result of the recent discovery of biological science, the time has come to revisit our basic understanding of living.
According to science, metabolizing oxygen need for our respiratory system developed over 1.45 billion years ago. As a result generally considered oxygen as a primary requirement for multicellular living.
There are many types of research ongoing to re-open new knowledge related to the origin of life. As a result, a recent research study conducted by a group of scientists challenges our understanding of the origin of life. This is by far the breakthrough discovery of the 2020 biological science that claims groundbreaking fact that multicellular animals can live without oxygen.
Ongoing research is conducted by scientists from Tel Aviv University in Israel. The research led by Dayana Yahalomi, who discovered something unusual on the common salmon parasite called Henneguya salminicola.
According to science, microorganisms are divided into seven types. These seven types include bacteria, archaea, protozoa, algae, fungi, viruses, and multicellular animal parasites. The new discovery was made around the parasites in the jellyfish-like parasite. It was believed that mitochondria is the reason for living oxygen dependency and newly discovery parasite does not contain a mitochondrion inside the DNA. This means that new discovery is completely independent of oxygen.
This is the first discovery of multicellular living not having mitochondria. This finding claims that life can completely survive without oxygen.
Furthermore, the new finding re-open eyes for a broader range of researchers. And, to search for alien life and perhaps revised our science books that multicellular life could live without oxygen.
In summary, suggesting the life of this animal is completely independent of the oxygen requirement.
Breakthrough in Science
This discovery will be a breakthrough in science and biology. Some scientists argue that this is perhaps the greatest discovery of biological science for the last century as this can potentially change the fundamental understanding of living.
Again, this discovery will ignite the search for life what’s without oxygen. could also imply the search of alien lives elsewhere in the universe.
