Is it possible for humans to get cells like an electric ee

Postby Coelacanth » Fri Feb 28, 2014 12:35 am

After all the eels got their cells from mutations in gene SCN4A

Fish have a copy of their genome
But this is possible in humans, called polyploidy (mosaic type) this can occur during cell division after birth, adult, etc...

so some humans can have copies of SCN4A as well.
