The study of the entire epigenetic code and its functions has led us to amazing discoveries. These various functions are briefly described here below, in order to show you what great opportunities the life code study offers.
Below are reported the various regulatory activities of the epigenetic code:
- Anti-aging activity
- Slowdown of the development and growth of tumor cells
- Prevention of Neuro-Degeneration
There is now a study underway on how the various specific molecules, which make up the epigenetic code are able to repair tissues and which therefore can be used in regenerative medicine, particularly in treating pathologies requiring stem cell transplantation. These epigenetic regulators may enhance the positive effects of stem cell transplantation and, in the future, to replace the transplant itself, seeing that it has been shown that beneficial effects of stem cell transplantation are not due to the transplanted cells, but to the factors that they produce. While reading the publications outlining these results following a transplantation, Dr.Biava wondered what were the factors produced by transplanted stem cells. And the answer in this case was easy: the factors produced by the transplanted stem cells are the same factors that we extract from the Zebrafish embryo. These factors, as we have stated above, are proteins and nucleic acids with regulatory properties, i.e. substances which have been identified one by one by Dr.Biava by means of an in-depth analysis with mass spectrometry, demonstrating that they are the same as those present in the human species.

Protein Analysis of Zebrafish Embryo Extract:
A protein analysis of embryonic extract from zebrafish embryo was performed. A suspension of the glycerol-alcohol solution was analyzed with monodimensional gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE).
As shown in the figure below in all 5 phases extracted, they can be distinguished by their molecular weight by three major groups: over 45 kDa, about 25-35 kDa and below 20 kDa. In any case, the relative amount of protein is different in the 5-stage samples.
Below is the list of proteins that have been identified by Biava et al.with the mass spectrometry analysis. The asterisk (*) lists the proteins that have never been described in the Zebrafish embryo:
Dr. Pier Mario Biava on Telomeres:
“Telomeres get shorter each time the cells divide. When the telomere becomes too short, the chromosome reaches a critical length and the cell can no longer replicate. This means that the cell ages and dies. However, GROWTH and DIFFERENTIATION FACTORS can be a very effective tool to promote cellular senescence antagonists in a physiological way. The result is a healthy cell and potentially an inversion of the aging process”
TELOMERS are essential parts of human cells that influence the way we age. Telomeres represent sort of a “cap” of DNA that protects cells from errors during their replication. Over time this hood tends to shorten and lose its protective properties. Thanks to the factors of Zebrafish this problem can be prevented by preserving telomers.
