London: Scientists in South Korea have created a fluorescent dog, called Tagon, using cloning techniques, which they claim could one day help cure diseases in humans like Alzheimer`s and Parkinson`s.
Dogs were chosen for the 1.8 million pounds project because they share 268 illnesses in common with humans, said science journal `Genesis`, which published the discovery. This amazing mutt is not the first glow-in-the-dark creature though. US researchers made a fluorescent cat called Green Genes three years ago. By introducing a fluorescence protein into the kitty`s DNA, mucus in the ginger tom`s nose, eyes and ears made them look green. It`s a miaow-zing what they can do in a lab these days.PTI
