Chicken came before egg

Bislang ging ich immer davon aus, dass das Ei vor der Henne da war und von dem Vieh gelegt wurde, dass dem Huhn in der Evolutionsleiter vorangestellt war. Jetzt haben Wissenschaftler herausgefunden, dass wohl tatsächlich die Henne vor dem Ei da wahr. Hat irgendwas mit Proteinen und Eierschalen zu tun.

"It had long been suspected that the egg came first, but now we have the scientific proof that shows that in fact the chicken came first," Sheffield University's Colin Freeman, according to a report in the Metro.

Researchers from Scotland and England used a supercomputer called HECToR to look in such detail at a chicken eggshell that they were able to determine the vital role of a protein used to kick-start the egg's formation.

That protein is only found, wait for it...inside a chicken.

Now you know: Chicken came before egg, evidence suggests (via Coudal)
