Four puppies, all named Ruppy. No this is not a cute story about four dogs with the same name. It’s a scientific reality about four dogs having cells taken out then replaced with substance to allow them to grow and glow in the dark.
Ruppy, Ruppy, Ruppy and Ruppy glow red under ultraviolet light when scientists planted genes inside of them as viewed through Yahoo News.
There is no question about it, Seoul National University’s Lee Byeong-chun thinks he is helping science, as Lee shares, “But they glow red under ultraviolet light, and the dogs’ nails and abdomens, which have thin skins, look red even to the naked eye.”
December 2007, what a beautiful wintertime it twas. For that was the moment that six female (cloned by gene) beagles were born. Did the first glow go as planned? After the birth two died, leaving only four left alive. And now the four live their lives glowing in the dark.
If I could ask Lee a question, I would ask what does his team do to poor candidates? Exterminate them after birth?
If we walk around each dog in the dark with a microwave dinner, could we save on electric? No. It’s not the same kind of glow. Would bees sense the beagles better since they have a glow? Something that has not been considered for research, which is good news for all four Ruppys.
Lee states that the goal is finding cures for diseases. Diseases, science continues the fight against diseases, trying to search for the perfect cure, through all cost, even life.
What do they plan on doing, injecting a disease to see if the glow kills it off? Are they going to inject dog glow substance into a human? Would this lead to injecting a human cell with glow “junk” to cure them? When it comes to the glow, personally, I’ll pass.
What can you see in a clone dog that is quite odd? Take a look at the photo I added. The dogs eyes are as distant as an emotionless pit. That is the difference between a cloned and non-cloned animal, the expression goes right out the door with a lack of emotion. Something that should bring concern to any cloning action, and one that is easily overlooked.
Either way, glowing should be a natural advantage to life such as the sunlight, and a pregnant woman’s face. Dogs should not be glowing, literally.
From a guy that shares his achievements on a website journal called “Genesis”, Lee has a lot of work ahead of him since God’s a hard act to follow.
