The genetic process halved the length of the spider’s legs

The genetic process halved the length of the spider’s legs
London: You may have seen a spider with unusually long and thread-like legs. Scientists have now halved the length of his legs after a genetic mutation.

This process is called RNA interface (RNA). Thanks to this, the long legs of the famous spider called ‘Daddy Long Legs’ have been shortened to create half-legged spiders. Now it may be called ‘Daddy Short Leagues’.

Thanks to RNAI, a gene is read and the small parts of the RNA are selected and the gene is switched off. In the process, the legs of the famous spider Phalangium opilio have been shortened. Although this is an experiment, it will help us understand the evolution of spider legs.
Experts have written in their research paper that this will help us to know the practical genetics. When experts peeked into the spider’s genome (a combination of genes), they found three genes that make up the body’s organs. Two of these genes were blocked during the formation of the spider’s egg.

In the process of embryo formation, the gene pairing silenced the other pair of legs, depriving them of the ability to touch and feel objects, but remained smaller than their original size. Landslides on their banks also disappeared. Similar experiments were performed on fruit flies.

By understanding this process, we can understand the structure of the long legs of spiders and the unusually long stings of scorpions. The scientifically mentioned spider is not a real spider but a close relative of it. However, experts have hinted at further research.
