The most boring tasks in Biology

... Posting multiple answers is fine. A few prerequisites: - It has to have to do with biological data (microscopic pictures, enzyme activities, protein structures…) - It has to be something that computers are not very good at doing If you are not sure about the prerequisites, don’t worry about ...

Re: Totipotent Stem Cell From Molecular Components

I am not saying # of protein x = # of protein y(In fact this 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 ...

Re: What does "deficient trafficking" means

... with: "not enough transport to the...". Without reading the paper I can't be sure of this. Based on your post, it sounds like the protein if interest is usually sent to the lysosome, but because it is misfolded it is tagged with a ubiquitin which leads to its degradation in the ...

What does "deficient trafficking" means

I was reading a paper on disease mechanism where misfolding of a particular protein leads to its degradation by ubiquitin proteasome pathway and deficient trafficking to the lysosome. What does deficient trafficking means and overall what does this sentence means?? ...

Re: Totipotent Stem Cell From Molecular Components

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 ...
