Re: I am having difficulty identifying this structure.

I'm not proficient with electron micrographs, but D definitely looks like a golgi. The average size doesn't fit, however. A golgi is about 2500 nm across. I might suggest to google "TEM golgi" and look at those pictures. If they fit, great. If not, Sorry ...

Re: Totipotent Stem Cell From Molecular Components

... is almost never the case). Rather I am saying that for a particular protein in my stem cell at least, the amount of that particular protein is the average of the gene expression in # of strands of mRNA * 100. I am getting the protein this way. I take the results of PCR and put it in a test tube ...
