Claim of alien cells in rain may fit historical accounts: study

Despite the speculation in the article, the real question is, if these "red cells" have no DNA, do they have any other biotic indicators, such as RNA, mitochondria, etc., i.e. any other biological matter or trace indicators within the "cell."

Also, re: the panspermia theory, if these "cells" did originate from a meteor or bolide burst, how close in time between that and the fall of red rain in Kerala was there?

Most importantly, if these cells are put into various bio-cultural environments, are there any signs of life or reproduction? I don't think so, or at least I have read nothing about that having occurred, even though I'm pretty sure that would have been tested through experimentation.

I've read a couple of papers about this published by Dr. Chan­dra Wick­ra­mas­inghe, di­rec­tor of the Cen­tre for As­tro­bi­ol­o­gy at Car­diff University in the U.K, and don't recall any signs of reproduction or biological materials being found.

Does anyone know any different about the Kerala "cells"?

I remember reading in a much earlier article that the "cells" reproduced. How I don't know.
