Tardigrade protein works in human cells
"...the University of Tokyo-led team found a protein that protects [tardigrades'] DNA - wrapping around it like a blanket. The scientists, who published their findings in the journal Nature Communications, went on to grow human cells that produced that same protein, and found that it protected those cells too."
Mike Miller, Materials Engineer
