    Default Death Happens More Slowly Than Thought



    A new study reveals how death in organisms, including humans, spreads like a wave from cell to cell until the whole individual is dead.

    The good news is that, in certain cases, scientists may be able to stop the biochemical process that leads to this death wave, reviving the individual.

    PHOTOS: Patenting Death

    Its difficult to study such life and death matters on animals. Who would want to volunteer for a study that ended in death? So researchers instead focused their analysis on worms, which surprisingly possess mechanisms that are similar to those that are active in mammals.

    The study is published in the latest issue of PLoS Biology.

    A remarkable feature of worms is that, as they die, the spread of death through their bodies can easily be seen under magnification. Its a fluorescent blue light caused by necrosis, or the cell death pathway. This, in turn, is dependent upon calcium signaling.

    The source of the blue hue is a molecule called anthranillic acid.

    David Gems from the Institute of Health Aging at University College London, who led the study, explained:

    Weve identified a chemical pathway of self-destruction that propagates cell death in worms, which we see as this glowing blue fluorescence traveling through the body. Its like a blue grim reaper, tracking death as it spreads throughout the organism until all life is extinguished.

    As a hypothetical, lets say a worm or a person is stuck in the desert, suffering from severe dehydration. The stress and strain of that leads to cellular shock and damage, causing individual cells to die.

    NEWS: Neuroscientist Says He Experienced Life After Death

    The entire organism doesnt just die in an instant. The individual cell deaths trigger a chemical reaction that leads to the breakdown of cell components and a build-up of molecular debris. If this goes on unchecked, the individual is toast.

    This type of damage can happen, but in a much slower way, as an individual ages.

    Scientists now cannot revive every single cell in a body, once its aged out of commission.

    But if the worm study is any indication, researchers might be able to stop the calcium signaling biochemical spread of death under other non-aging-related circumstances.

    We found that when we blocked this pathway, we could delay death induced by a stress such as infection, but we couldnt slow death from old-age, Gems said. This suggests that aging causes death by a number of processes acting in parallel.

    He continued that the findings cast doubt on the theory that aging is simply a consequence of an accumulation of molecular damage. We need to focus on the biological events that occur during aging and death to properly understand how we might be able to interrupt these processes.

    Obviously this is relating to medical cases. For example maybe they can stop cancerous cells from dying? Therefore eliminate cancer. Either way this would change the view life as we know it.

    Damn. I think about death sometimes and this adds a whole new variable to the mix.

    They'd bleed out obviously, or go into shock if a major organ was ruptured.

    This article doesn't seem to really make sense. There is no way for them to test this out. It may be on worms which are similar, but we won't know if this theory will really work.

    Hey asshat, I was interested if something would happen with the cells or just dying bevause of bleeding out or too much pain.
