Ants and oncogenesis

Ants and oncogenesis. We know that ants have a strong sense of smell. With this power, he is adept at delivering his food in a timely manner. Researchers have discovered a type of ant with a highly developed sense of smell that could help people distinguish between diseased and healthy cells.

How ants detect Cancer?

  • The experiment, conducted at the best university in Paris, involved 34 ants of different species. They were first introduced to the smell of cancer cells by showing their greed for sugar.
  • In the second phase, the ants were allowed to smell two. One of them was a new object, and the other was a cancer cell. More research is being done on how this experiment can be applied to the benefit of human society. Cancer cells have already been identified by dogs, but this is the first time in the world that they have tested any insects.

Why ants are more effective?

Ants are particularly important in oncogenesis because they offer building blocks for tumour anabolism, regulate oxidative phosphorylation and glycolysis balance, and regulate cell death. As a result, ANTs appear to be interesting targets for the development of new anticancer drug.
