China’s Northwestern Polytechnical University Kadawa is doing this experiment that every year the length of the horns growing on the heads of rats will increase.
During the experiment, a bulge was seen on the forehead of the rat to emerge from the antlers of the deer.

chinese scientist He is known for his strange experiments. His recent experiments are in discussion. Scientists have started growing deer horns on the heads of rats. The effect of the experiment can be seen in the pictures. In rats, a protrusion can be seen on the forehead for the horns. Changes are visible in the ears. this experimenter China Did Northwestern Polytechnical University OfIt is claimed that every year the length of the horns growing on the heads of rats will increase.
Understand in 5 points, how scientists grew horns on the head of rats, in how many days the effect started to appear and how it will benefit humans.
- Experiment happened like this: Scientists say, deer horns were first taken for this experiment on rats. Stem cells were isolated from it. After this it was transplanted on the forehead of the rat. Gradually, a bulge started growing here, which would turn into horns. The team of researchers claims that its effect was visible within 45 days of transplanting stem cells in mice.
- How much benefit to humans: Scientists say that the results of this experiment can prove to be very useful for humans. The way this experiment has been done, in the same way the bone and cartilage of humans can be repaired. Or after cutting off the legs, it can be re-developed on the body.
- Benefits of reindeer antlers: Scientists argue, deer’s horns are the only part of its body which grows every year. This is the fastest growing segment. This is because such blastema cells are found in its body which can grow back their lost horn. That’s why these cells play a very important role.
- positive results: For this, in 2020, different teams of scientists had experimented. Through his experiment, he tried to understand whether deer horns can be grown on the head of a rat or not. Through a recent experiment, an attempt is being made to understand to what extent blastema cells of deer are responsible for re-growth of horns. The results of the experiment revealed so far have been positive.
- RNA sequencing of 75 thousand cells:Publish research in Science Journal says, for this experiment, scientists examined the RNA of 75000 deer cells. It was tested both before and after being transplanted into mice. As a result, it was revealed that the horns which were separated from the deer 10 days ago had a large number of such cells which play an important role in their growth.
