"Its genome has been mapped in a new study. A preliminary analysis shows that species have genes that increased the ability to heal wounds and injuries, which is valuable from a nature that is both durable and often prone to violence."
"the great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) is – as a result of countless naturfilmer and even feature films – one of the most well-known animals in the oceans."
"According to the new study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, carries the species on more than 24 000 genes, that is to say, about as many genes as a human being."
"Some of these genes have, as a result of natural selection, strengthened its ability to stabilize the genome by responding quickly to damages in its dna, and to repair the damage."
"the Genome also carries genes which gives the species a good protection against various forms of cancer."
"But perhaps the most interesting part is that the species have special adaptations in order to heal the wounds and other physical damage."
"the Researchers, who were led by evolutionsekologen Michael Stanhope of Cornell University in the united states, writing that the adjustments are likely to have been crucial for the survival of the species."
"the Long and perilous life."
"great white shark gets up to six metres long and can weigh over three tonnes, it has the ability to self-regulate their body temperature, have slow reproduction and may be over 70 years old. It wanders long distances in the oceans, and can dive down to 1,000 meters deep. The hunt for big prey and exposes himself often to great risks."
"All of this adds to the vastness of the rovfiskarna live long, but also perilous life. A genetic system that provides protection against damage to the dna, rapid healing of severe injuries and protection against cancer, is, therefore, extremely beneficial, and might have been necessary for the species ' existence."
"the great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) is the largest living predatory fish. Really large specimens can be up to six metres long and weigh three tonnes."
"the Species is found on both the northern and southern hemisphere in sea areas with a temperature between 12 and 24 degrees. The most common is in the waters off southern Australia, south Africa, Chile, Japan, and eastern and western united states. However, there is an absence in tropical waters."
"the great white shark can be 30 years or more. The moves regularly long distances between the different maritime areas, and feed mostly on large fish and marine mammals. The attacks sometimes people. It happens between five and ten times a year."
