Re: Purpose of a primase/polymerase localized to the cytosol?

... ancestry. It might be helping maintain proper levels of environmentally uptaken DNA e.g. via transformation, for successful establishment (integration into genome and maintaining enough copy number) & functioning of the uptaken DNA in those ancient bacteria ( we should check for such ...

λ Phase Genetic Switch

the λ-phage inserts his DNA by recombination; the integration is site-specific, the recognition-site is found to by 15bp long and is located between the gacactose and tryptophan genes... My thesis: as long as the plasmid DNA doesn`t contain the recognition-sequence, ...

Evolutionary advantage of seeing 'upright'

... isn't upright. What it actually is is integrated with your other spatial senses, specifically hearing, touch, and the vestibular sense. This "integration" process happens in the angular gyrus, a part of your brain located between the visual and motor cortices. You only assume your vision ...

Re: Theories - Origin of Life

... probabilistic and not absolute. However, these limitations not withstanding, the availability of a rooted reference tree greatly facilitates the integration between gene and reference tree There is a lot more but is this not enough to sum up the case against TOL. But what about the “messy bit” ...
