Living in the future
« on: August 07, 2011, 01:36:44 PM »
Frankly, the future as been something of a disappointment. No lunar base, no flying cars, no android servants. My house still doesn't talk to me. At least now we have phosphorescent animals.

Genetically Engineered, Glow-In-The-Dark Beagle Created By South Korean Scientists


A glowing beagle is definitely on the list of things we never expected to see.

But South Korean scientists seem to have made it a reality in hopes of finding cures for diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, according to Reuters. While genetically engineering a puppy to glow is controversial to say the least, the project aims to help researchers identify possible side-effects of certain treatments that could occur in humans.

Tegon, as the pup is called, may hold the key to many human diseases, as the glow-in-the-dark property can be controlled with the addition of an antibiotic called doxycycline.

ByeongChun Lee, a co-author of the paper on Tegon that will appear in the journal Genesis, told Discovery News that the gene triggers a real glow under UV light. Without UV light, Lee told Discovery that you can still see a slightly yellow glow in the dog's skin.

The practical application of the ability to make the dog glow helps to identify possible complications from diseases, without harming the dog.
