Is it possible to have a venom gland in human body?
Venom Gland is a biological weapon given by nature. Animals that carry venom are for self-defense or to neutralize the prey. What if in the future human beings have venom glands? Scientists have conducted long research to get answers to these questions.
Finding answers to the question of how Venoms are made in animals, scientists have found some surprising information. Venom can be made in the body of any other mammal, including human being!
Researchers studied the genes of poisonous animals. They get to see. ‘Housekeeping’ is related to poisoning in genes. Although they do not produce venoms themselves but they are the basis of this venoms. Surprisingly, like housekeeping genes, there are similar genes are found in human salivary glands. Venom is basically a protein and human salivary glands produces a lot of protein. That is, the preliminary results of the study suggest that the human salivary glands can be converted to venom glands in the future.
Two different animals may have the same venom. For example, some of the venom of Sahasrapadi is also found in snakes. Again, the venom of two animals of the same species may be different. For example, desert snakes and rocky valley snakes. In the hot desert, snakes usually prey on rats. The venom of these snakes works on the circulatory system. Because it is not very difficult to identify rats at short distances on flat land. Rocky valley snakes, on the other hand, usually prey on lizards. Their venoms are high levels of the protein neurotoxin. Because, if the prey cannot be tamed quickly in these places, it will be hidden in the hole immediately.
That is, the toxins and their types are naturally converted to the needs of animals. In that case for human being, there is no need for venom to dominate the nature. Because we are already in dominant position. Nature can be ruled without venom in the system of instruments, weapons, social structures that man has created with his intellect.
