Chapter 458: Discovering New Features, Now Money’s Going to Fall From the Sky (Part One)
Xu Cheng was just wondering what his self-repairing ability was about, the one which allowed him to absorb water and quickly repair any wounds on his body. But, from yesterday’s discussion with Koman, he found out that all cells were basically born from water, and he realized that his self-repairing ability was basically his cells resuscitating, as they madly absorbed water to bring life back to the dead cells on his wound, allowing those cells to gradually come to life.
This was the biggest reason behind him acquiring Professor Koman’s lab.
Last night, Professor Koman had taught him how to use the equipment in the lab to study genes, and he also gave Xu Cheng the books to read to learn the basics.
He took out a needle and collected a little blood from his hand and put it into the fridge.
Then, he looked up to study the vein map of a dog.
He opened up the animal cage and took out a stray dog and injected it with some anesthesia before putting it onto the operating table.
After shaving off the hair, he saw that the part where the dog lost a leg was already scarred.
Following the principle of cell resuscitation, Xu Cheng first took a picture of the other leg on the dog that was still fine, noted down the measurements, and went to the window and said to Lin Dong, “Go, make a hollow silicone mold for this leg.”
Lin Dong didn’t know what his teacher was up to, but he did it anyway.
After he came back, Xu Cheng took the dog-leg mold to the lab.
If the cells could still recover and he didn’t prepare a mold, then the leg that grows back might just keep on growing without any specific shape in mind, making it difficult for it to be restored to the original shape.
So, Xu Cheng prepared the mold, first cutting off the scarred area with a knife, letting the blood run, and exposing the veins. And then, Xu Cheng strapped the mold on to the dog’s joint.
Then, taking out his blood from the fridge, he injected it into the dog’s vein from the area he shaved.
He put the dog back into the cage. Squatting down with his arms around his knees, he just stared blankly at the cage.
“Needs to succeed. Needs to succeed. Needs to succeed,” Xu Cheng kept on mumbling in his heart.
It didn’t take long before the anesthesia wore off, and the dog felt an intense wave of pain!
Xu Cheng narrowed his eyes and stared at it, knowing that it was the sign of the serum trying to fuse into the body.
It was screeching and barking out of the sharp pain, and outside, Lin Dong curiously said, “Teacher, do you need my help with anything?”
“No,” Xu Cheng said and continued to stare at the dog.
“Hold on! Just hold on for a bit longer! Let that serum completely resuscitate your cells!
But, after five minutes, the dog fell down as if it was completely drained of any energy. Its body collapsed to the bottom of the cage and trembled.
Xu Cheng opened the cage and reached inside, petting it, and he noticed that it wasn’t moving anymore.
At this thought, he sighed out of discouragement.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
He slowly stood up, feeling disappointed. Looking blankly at the dog, he originally wanted to just give up and take care of the dead body, but he still didn’t want to believe the dog just died like that. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
It was a bulldog! Due to the broken leg, it was abandoned by its owner and became a stray dog. But, Koman brought it back, and it was able to stay alive under several experiments. Xu Cheng felt that no matter how powerful his genes were, just that little portion shouldn’t have been enough to kill the dog, right?(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
