We've finished analyzing the tissue samples believed to be from Jack Baker.
The cells exhibit an extraordinary resilience to physical and chemical damage; the E-Series mutamycete secretes a telomerase-like enzyme through the cell wall, causing abnormal activation of the ERK pathway to achieve forced cell division-quickly regenerating damaged tissue.
However, the repeated cell division quickly leads to breakdown in the intercellular structure, leading to the sloughing, slurry-like effect we've observed in the collected tissue samples. Our working hypothesis puts this down to the cells reaching their Hayflick limit.
Note that the samples from the other family members (the wife Marguerite, the son Lucas, and the daughter Zoe) do not exhibit the same extreme regenerative properties.
The symptoms may differ from subject to subject.
Further study required.
Regarding the analysis results of a piece of meat apparently from Jack Baker
It displays extremely high regeneration from physical and chemical damage.
The E-Type fungus secretes an enzyme resembling telomerase inside the cell, and it is believed to have caused the abnormal activation of the ERK pathway.
However, as the regeneration is repeated, the cell structure gradually becomes a slush, and becomes dysfunctional. Is this an effect of having reached the Hayflick limit?
Furthermore, the other family members (wife, Marguerite / son, Lucas / daughter, Zoe) have not been confirmed to have regenerative abilities to the degree of Jack's from their sample structures.
Are symptoms unique to individuals? A survey is required.
