Totipotent Stem Cell From Molecular Components

Postby caters » Sun Feb 02, 2014 10:58 pm

Q1 I am wanting to make an animal cell from DNA, RNA, Protein, and Fatty Acids as well as Glucose and other sugars. I am wondering. Should I start with the cell membrane or the nucleus and nucleolus(both are very important)?

Q2 The pace of DNA replication is 8 2/3 hours for every chromosome and 2097152 of each chromosome in 1 week. Is that just an estimate because I know that it is 8 2/3 hours per replication origin.

Q3 Once I know how many proteins of a particular type should I do this:

Go to BioGPS

Look up the proteins

Make sure I have human selected(since I am making a human stem cell)

Average the mRNA expression to get stem cell mRNA expression

Multiply by 100 to get the amount of protein

Q4 I have heard of amplicons used in PCR. Do I really need one to copy a whole gene or just primers, DNA, and enzymes?

A1: good luck, even Venter haven't managed that yet.

A3: and how will you get the protein? Are you really sure that the stemm cells contain all protein in the same amount?

A4: amplicon is the result of PCR. You need some template though, in your case probably the DNA.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
