We have more than 200 types of cells in our body. But the diseases I described are caused by loss of function of just one type of cell. Parkinson’s disease is caused by failure of very specialized brain cells that produce dopamine. Heart failure is caused by loss of function of cardiac heart cell.

Molecules similar to AFPs could be used to preserve organs. But extraction of AFPs from these fish won’t work. It takes a ton of these rare fish to produce just a few grams of antifreeze protein.
